Frankie Dettori is not going to be driving for John and Thady Gosden at Newmarket on Saturday.
Whereas the Italian can be at HQ to trip the Ralph Beckett-trained Lezoo within the Listed Maureen Brittain Memorial Empress Fillies’ Stakes, owned by his good friend Marc Chan, his identify doesn’t seem alongside two Gosden-trained runners on the cardboard.
Having ridden each Sunray Main and Stowel for almost all of their careers, the previous would be the mount of James Doyle within the Criterion Stakes with Robert Havlin on the latter within the Fred Archer Stakes.
The information comes after a testing Royal Ascot assembly for the Gosdens and Dettori.
Dettori got here in for pointed criticism from Gosden senior following his trip on Stradivarius within the Gold Cup, and within the subsequent race when the Queen’s Saga failed by a head to catch Thesis within the Britannia Stakes.
Whereas it isn’t uncommon for Dettori to overlook the midweek motion, he was anticipated to choose up the place he left off this weekend.
Dettori’s supervisor Peter Burrell instructed the PA information company: “We’re at nighttime and looking for solutions like everyone else.”
Gosden helped get Dettori’s profession again on observe following his cut up with Godolphin and the pair have loved great success.
The likes of Allow, Stradivarius, Golden Horn and Palace Pier have all helped hold Dettori on the prime desk, and on Friday the pair struck within the Coronation Stakes with Inspiral.
