Frankie Dettori endured an injury scare just four days before Qipco British Champions Day at Ascot when his mount in a Leicester maiden broke loose under the stalls.

Frankie Dettori suffered an injury scare at Leicester

The Italian looked a little shaken but was able to walk away from the scene, albeit gingerly.

The John Gosden-trained Azam was withdrawn from the opening British Stallion Studs EBF Maiden Stakes over an extended mile after getting out at the front of the gates.

Dettori was assessed by the doctor, who found the jockey had soft tissue injuries.

He was stood down for the rest of the day. He had one remaining ride, Utmost, in a seven-furlong maiden at 4.15.

"He's just got some soft tissue injuries. It's nothing too major," said clerk of the course Jimmy Stevenson.

"I'm sure he'll be ok."

Dettori's booked rides at Ascot on Saturday include Galileo Gold in the Qipco Queen Elizabeth II Stakes and Shalaa in the Qipco British Champions Sprint.
