Punters can usually rely on the Ryan Moore/Aidan O’Brien axis as a short cut to Royal Ascot profits, but on day one of this year’s meeting it was the Frankie Dettori/John Gosden combo that had the bookies running for cover.
The dynamic duo are back for more with three rides on day two.
Yesterday they teamed up on Calyx, Without Parole and Monarchs Glen at the Royal Meeting and ended the afternoon with a perfect record after winners at 2/1F, 9/4F and 8/1.
On the second day, the untouchable Dettori and Gosden outfit are in cahoots on Stream of Stars (2:05), Cracksman (4:20) and Purser (5:35).
Stream Of Stars is 4/1 second-favourite for the Queens Vase after scoring over 2f shorter at Ascot on good-to-firm-ground a little over a month ago. The third from that race has won a handicap since.
Could 12/1 shot Purser be the one that completes another bookie-punishing Dettori-Gosden hat-trick in the Jersey Stakes?
He carries the same silks as Calyx and Monarchs Glen did yesterday, former Frankel owner Prince Khalid Abdullah.
