Royal Ascot blow for Frankie Dettori after ban

Frankie Dettori
Dettori's suspension will prove costly for the jockey

Frankie Dettori has been given a 10-day riding ban that will rule him out of the final two days of Royal Ascot.

Dettori was called into the stewards office and suspended for dropping his hands on Blue Bunting as he finished fourth in a race at Epsom on Friday.

His ban will run from 17 June to 26 June inclusive, which means he will miss out on riding Delegator in Royal Ascot's Golden Jubilee Stakes.

Dettori will also have to sit out the Irish Derby meeting the following week.
