Jockey Frankie Dettori will ride Prince Of Arran (GB) (Shirocco {Ger}) in the Red Sea Turf H. at King Abdulaziz Racetrack in Saudi Arabia on Feb. 20.

A three-time placer in the G1 Melbourne Cup, the Charlie Fellowes trainee is doing well in advance of the $2.5-milllion contest. In his latest start, the gelding was third at Kempton in a two-mile synthetic affair on Feb. 6.

“He's in good nick and I'm looking forward to seeing him out there, hopefully the journey goes well,” Fellowes told ITV Racing. “We've got Frankie up, which will be interesting. He's never ridden him before, but you couldn't have a better jockey in the plate. I'm looking forward to it.”
