Derby challenger labels Frankie Dettori as 'the greatest'

Frankie Dettori is "the best" jockey horse insurance policyholders have ever seen, according to one man who is hoping to pip him to the Derby crown this weekend.

Ryan Moore, who will be aboard The Queen's horse on Saturday (June 4th), told the Daily Mail of his admiration for his rival.

"Frankie is still the best in my eyes. Just beautiful to watch. His personality has maybe taken over too much and people forget how good he is. But he is a long way from being all show. Frankie is the perfect model for a jockey, not too big but with big arms and big hands and plenty of power," Mr Moore added.

He went on to say that his own son even practices jumping off his rocking horse, emulating Dettori's famous stunt at Ascot when he rode seven winners.

According to the BBC, The Queen's horse Carlton House is undergoing a fitness test to see if it will take part in the Derby.
