Dettori tipped to ride Entitle at Chantilly

Dettori takes Raa Atoll ride

Denford’s racing manager Richard Evans says he expects Frankie Dettori to ride Entitle for Sunday’s Prix de Diane.

Trainer Jean-Claude Rouget is set to be well represented for the race at Chantilly this weekend with Ebony, Cartiem, Etoile and Commes all expected to take part.

Evans was hoping to have Dettori in the saddle for Ebony, however, the experienced Italian rider is expected to feature in the race on Entitle.

‘I’ve heard this morning that Frankie can’t ride, unfortunately, as he’s tied to one of John Gosden’s (Entitle),’ Evans said.

‘We were looking forward to it, but Jean-Claude will have to find another.

‘She’s (Ebony) a nice filly, she won her only race really nicely last year.

I don’t think she was fully fit first time out and then ran a nice race to be second to Channel, who she’ll meet again on Sunday.’
