Royal Ascot Saturday: Frankie Dettori's rides
Dettori has teamed up with John and Thady Gosden's yard throughout the week, but he hashis first ride in the royal silks this week when he partners the Queen's two-year-old Reach For The Moon in the Chesham. He was not too far behind the reopposing New Science on his debut run, and could come on for it.
Stayed on for second behind New Science at Yarmouth; open to progress
Dettori last rode Fundamental when coming home fifth in the Greenham Stakes, and since then the three-year-old wassecond in Listed company. There was promise in that run, but he faces some tough opposition in the likes of Listed winners Bellosa and Creative Force, and last year'sRoyal Ascot winner Tactical.
Has improved steadily, second in Listed race last time, but others have achieved more
Final Songis no stranger to Royal Ascot, having finished third in the Queen Mary in 2019 and seventh last year in the Jersey Stakes on soft ground.Shespent the start of the season in Dubai but failedto impress on her return at York last month. However, Godolphin had a 18-1 winner earlier in the weekand Dettori willbe aiming for another surprise success.
Went close in Group 1 in Dubai in March but down the field in the Duke Of York since
Mark Johnston somewhat spoiled Dettori's Thursday by sending out Gold Cup winner Subjectivist, but this time the pair are teaming up with Desert Safari. Dettori did not have a ride in this handicap last season, while this is his first ride on the the four-year-old, who failed to deliver at Epsom 14 days ago.
Has improved, 6f AW and 5f turf wins 2021; needs more; Dettori 10-48 for yard last 5 yrs
It's another first ride on a Mark Johnston-trained runner for Dettori with King Frankel, who is coming to Ascot on a run of good form. The Frankel coltshowed an admirable late charge to takesecond in his last run on Derby day, for which he was raised 3lb.
Notable 2nd in 1m2f handicaps on last two starts and looked capable of better last time
Dettori won theChester Cup for the first time in 30 years with Falcon Eight last month and the pair team up again in the finale. Despite a bad draw, Falcon Eight was impressive onthat seasonal return last month and has to be one of Dettori's best chances of the day.
Easy winner of the Chester Cup and on very favourable terms with most of this field
