Frankie Dettori says jockeys will adapt to new whip rules

Frankie Dettori believes riders will need time to adapt, after two riders fell foul of strict new rules on the use of whips.

Top jockey Richard Hughes received a five-day ban and apprentice Kieren Fox has been barred for 15 days for overuse of the whip at Salibury on Monday. Both also lose their riding fees and prize money.

While acknowledging that the sport must change, Dettori emphasises that jockeys love horses "more than anything else in the world".
