Frankie Dettori’s Possible Ride in Final Arc de Triomphe Cuts Bookmakers’ Nerves

, Frankie Dettori’s Possible Ride in Final Arc de Triomphe Cuts Bookmakers’ Nerves

Rumored Last Ride

Frankie Dettori, the legendary jockey, is rumored to ride in his final ever Arc de Triomphe, and this news has made bookies very nervous. Dettori has won the prestigious race more times than anyone else and plans to retire at the end of this season.

Possible Outsider Winner

Despite his impressive track record, it seems that Dettori may not have the favorite horse this time. It is speculated that he might have to rely on a surprise outsider to secure a record-breaking seventh victory in France.

Racing Post Report

The Racing Post reported that Dettori recently rode Free Wind, a multiple Group-winning mare owned by George Strawbridge. She narrowly lost by a head in the Yorkshire Oaks last month. Dettori has previously ridden the horse to two of her six victories, and trainer John Gosden confirmed that she is being considered for the Arc.

Bookies React

In response to these developments, bookmaker Coral has cut the odds on Free Wind from 50-1 to 25-1 due to an influx of support. This puts her at the same odds as Matt Chapman's top tip. Bookie David Stevens commented on the strong interest in Dettori's final mount, saying that with odds of 50-1 quickly being taken, it was no surprise that the price was lowered.

Possible Contenders

The favorite for the Arc de Triomphe is Ace Impact at 10-3, followed by Hukum at 9-2, Continuous at 8-1 (pending supplementation), and Hukum at 9-2. Aidan O'Brien is likely to have only one runner in the race, with St Leger hero Continuous as a possible contender. Other horses like King George winner Hukum and Free Wind remain outsiders.
