Frankie Dettori discusses Private Secretary on Day Four of Royal Ascot
Japan will be very hard to beat but I am looking forward to riding Private Secretary in the King Edward VII Stakes at 3.05.
He’s got a good draw and should run a big race. He has improved with every run and has developed physically.
He has grown and really strengthened. I like the horse and I think he’s got a great chance.
Japan is the one who sticks out, finishing a strong third in the Derby. He is the one we all have to beat but my horse is going in the right direction.
I ride Advertise in the Commonwealth Cup (3.40) but he really has to bounce back.
He ran a bad race last time at Newmarket. That said, I am hopeful of a better performance tomorrow.
The last is the Duke Of Edinburgh Stakes (5.35) where I ride Ben Vrackie.
It is such a competitive handicap, so I won’t be going here saying I’m going to win because it’s too hard to judge.
