Flat Special: The Frankie Factor

Frankie Dettori is 7-1 with William Hill to win a UK or Irish Classic in 2015, as the popular Italian looks set to ride more for the likes of John Gosden this season, while also holding strong potential mounts owned by Al Shaqab Racing.


Dettori has a number of options for the 1000 and 2000 Guineas, but perhaps The Wow Signal and Osaila look to be two of his more interesting potential rides in the early Classics this season. The Wow Signal is currently 16-1 for the Qipco 2000 Guineas, while Osaila is 20-1 to win the Qipco 1000 Guineas.


Dettori’s last Classic success in UK/Ireland was with Blue Bunting when landing the Qipco 1000 Guineas and Darley Irish Oaks in 2011.


“It’s been a while since Frankie Dettori landed a Classic but he’s at the top table again and he’s ready to serve it up to his race rivals,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
