Suspension rules Dettori out of Goodwood

Frankie Dettori faces a lengthy suspension.

Frankie Dettori will consider appealing a 10 meet suspension which rules him out of the Goodwood FEstival.

Dettori says he is devastated following the verdict of the stewards, with the ban also to keep him out of the King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot.

Dettori found himself in hot water following the run of Angel’s Hideaway in the Duchess of Cambridge Stakes, in which the John Gosden-trained filly finished second to the impressive Pretty Pollyanna.

Angel’s Hideaway had veered right under pressure with over a furlong (200m) still to run in the Group Two race with Main Edition and La Pelosa among those suffering interference in behind.

“I will think about it (appeal), of course,” Dettori said.

“I would have said ‘yes’, but I’ve got to check with the PJA (Professional Jockeys Association) and I’ve got to look at the videos again.

“I’m devastated, of course.”

Dettori would have been expected to ride Gold Cup winner Stradivarius in the Goodwood Cup as well as Without Parole in the Sussex Stakes.
