Royal Ascot review: Frankie Dettori strikes on Frankly Darling in the Ribblesdale to give John Gosden 50 Ascot winners

OLD pals Frankie Dettori and John Gosden combined to win the Ribblesdale with the exciting Frankly Darling.

The result gave the pair back-to-back wins in the Group 2 and leading trainer Gosden with a landmark 50th winner at the Royal meeting.

Frankly Darling was an easy winner of the Ribblesdale

And in truth, the result was rarely in doubt.

The well-backed 11-8 favourite Frankly Darling was perfectly positioned in behind the pace-setting Golden Lips by Dettori.

She was angled into the clear on the home bend and put the race to bed in a matter of strides, with Aidan O’Brien pair Ennistymon and Passion keeping on well to fill the places.

The winner is now 4-1 for the Oaks at Epsom with Betfair, and that is almost certain to be her next port of call.
