Nick Luck Daily Ep 508 – Can Frankie come out from under the bus?

Nick is joined by writer and broadcaster Lydia Hislop to discuss the latest news and developments from around the racing world. They lead with a look back at the most dramatic moments of Gold Cup day at Royal Ascot, asking whether or not Frankie Dettori warranted the implicit criticism he received from connections of Stradivarius and whether Inspiral is likely to dig him out of a tricky spot on Friday afternoon. They also talk extensively about the interference rules and penalties in light of Paul Hanagan’s controversial ride aboard The Ridler in the Norfolk Stakes, and look ahead to the remaining feature races of the meeting. Among Nick’s other guests today are owners Johnny Allison (seller of Bradsell, before winning with 40/1 shot Rising Star)and David Howden, also a commercial partner at Ascot. James Willoughby and Jamie Hart return with WorldPool and Rankings updates, while resident milliner Lisa Tan guides Nick through the fashion fads and faux pas this week, and nine-year old Freja Thackray gives us the lowdown on how she has raised over 12k for Racing Welfare.
