Royal Ascot: Dettori backed for Day Three joy
Frankie Dettori has a full book of rides at Royal Ascot on Thursday and our traders say the Italian jockey is attracting widespread support.
Dettori got off the mark on the opening day with a win on Frankly Darling, but he has seven rides to look forward to on Day Three, including three favourites.
His most high-profile ride will on superstar Stradivarius, who is just 1/2 to win the Ascot Gold Cup.
Nicola McGeady of Ladbrokes said: “Frankie Dettori has been known to give us sleepless nights and tonight will be one of those. Punters are already backing his mounts ahead of tomorrow and with the multis racking up, it will be a nerve-wracking day for bookies.”
