Frankie Dettori will miss the Shergar Cup at Ascot on Saturday because he will be racing at Newmarket instead.
It was expected the Italian would feature for the European team at Ascot this weekend but his agent Ray Cochrane has now revealed the 47-year-old has been pencilled in by trainer John Gosden for a hectic afternoon at Headquarters.
Cochrane said: "Frankie's going to Newmarket. John is going to have three runners there, including Princess Haya's filly in the Group Three (Pennywhistle, Sweet Solera Stakes).
"Hopefully Frankie will have seven rides. He can't be everywhere, I'm afraid."
French jockey Gerald Mosse will captain the European team in the Shergar Cup in the absence of Dettori, while German jockey Andrasch Starke and Swedish rider Per-Anders Graberg make up the side.
