Frankie Dettori joins us for Breakfast

Italian stallion? More like Italian ON a stallion! Frankie Dettori joins us at the Brekkie table to tell us about the launch of British Champions Series.

And we reveal the Top 50 stories for 500 WORDS!

On Saturday, Britain's premier series of flat racing (which ties in all of the major racing festivals, such as Royal Ascot, The Derby and Glorious Goodwood) gets under way, and who better to tell us all about it than the man who has been Champion Jockey on three occasions and has ridden the winners of more than 500 Group races?!

And who could forget his legendary performance at the 1996 Champion's Day at Ascot, where he rode not one, not two, but all seven of the winning horses!

Recognised for his achievements with an honorary MBE, Detorri has poured his heart and soul into horse riding since he first mounted a steed at the age of just twelve at his father's stables in Italy. Now a Londoner through and through, Frankie has a restaurant in Putney and is a big fan of Arsenal!

We can't wait to meet all 5' 4" of a true galloping great!
