Frankie Dettori got back in the winning groove on his first ride after the resumption of racing at Kempton on Galsworthy and the 49-year-old jockey was in no doubt who was most pleased to see him back in action – wife Catherine!
After 11 weeks at home during lockdown, Dettori quipped: ‘It’s good. I’m away from home.
‘I think my wife is more pleased than me, I’ll be honest with you.’

There was no flying dismount as Dettori slid off the easy John Gosden-trained winner of the mile and a half maiden on Wednesday.
Dettori will now ride Gosden-trained Shimmering in Sunday’s 1,000 Guineas rather than Mark Johnston’s Raffle Prize.
Most impressive winner of the day at Kempton was The Queen’s Sir Michael Stoute-trained First Receiver.
