Royal Ascot 2020 – Frankie Dettori’s Big Chances at This Year’s Meeting
Frankie Dettori is the biggest name in racing and has had a huge amount of Royal Ascot Group 1 success. Dettori’s rides will be well supported by punters and the Italian has been a nightmare for bookmakers during his career. Christopher Loader takes a look at some of Frankie’s chances that just might upset the bookmakers once again.
Frankie Dettori rides – Royal Ascot 2020
Many Royal Ascot Day 1 Tips could feature LORD NORTH, who has a strong chance for trainer John Gosden in the Queen Anne Stakes. Dettori teamed up with the son of Dubawi to win the Cambridgeshire at Newmarket last season and he’s already won the Group 3, Brigadier Gerard Stakes, at Haydock this season.
Another lively prospect for Dettori could be FRANKLY DARLING in the Ribblesdale Stakes. This will likely be a trial for the Oaks and connections will be hoping she can repeat the success of Star Catcher last year. The daughter of Frankel won very well on her seasonal reappearance at Newcastle and she could well have a future at the highest level.
Frankie Dettori’s Best Rides at Royal Ascot 2020
Frankie’s best chance of a winner will likely be STRADIVARIUS as they seek their third consecutive Ascot Gold Cup. The six-year-old has already been seen this season finishing a respectable third in the rearranged Coronation Cup at Newmarket. This year could be his toughest year yet as Stradivarius will have to face Kew Gardens who ended his two-year unbeaten streak at Ascot on Champions Day last season. However, over a further trip I think he will be able to reverse placings
For the juvenile races, it appears that EYE OF HEAVEN will be the pick of our Frankie Dettori rides acting as his main hope of a winner. The son of Exceed and Excel is trained by Mark Johnston and won on debut at Newmarket with Frankie aboard. He is likely to be entered in the Norfolk or Coventry Stakes where he can be a live contender. He could be one for your Royal Ascot Free Bets.
Frankie Dettori Royal Ascot Stars
PALACE PIER could be one of the potential superstars on show at Royal Ascot should he take part in the St James’s Palace Stakes. The son of Kingman has always looked like he could be a Group 1 horse with the talented displays he put in as a juvenile and if Frankie is booked expect a bold bid.
Undoubtedly whatever Frankie Dettori rides during Royal Ascot will always be of interest. He is sure to have his fair share of winners and will capture your attention if you watching on our live streaming service. There is no reason why he cannot be the leading jockey at the Royal meeting.
