Epsom - Racing: Doyle eyeing landmark win

Hollie Doyle doesn't need any motivation for Friday's Cazoo Oaks at Epsom, but the possibility to become the first woman to ride a British Classic winner provides her with a huge opportunity.

Doyle will partner the John & Thady-trained Nashwa in the race and she has every chance of breaking more history as the Frankel filly is second favourite behind stablemate Emily Upjohn.

Owned by Imad Alsagar, Nashwa is a general 9/2 shot for the Epsom Classic as she goes in search of a third successive win. You can follow the action via our Sports Live Streaming service.

Doyle, 25, has been onboard the three-year-old in her three previous starts, which included her victory in a Listed Trial Stakes at Newbury.

Prior to that success earlier this month, the Gosden filly scored over a mile at Haydock in April which followed her debut in October, when she placed third in a novice stakes at Newmarket.

Impressive 2021 for Doyle

Doyle, who recorded 152 winners in 2021, worked with Nashwa during her final serious piece of work on Newmarket's Cambridge Road Polytrack on Sunday.

Speaking ahead of Friday's Classic, Doyle explained how preparations have gone and why Nashwa has a huge opportunity to come out on top.

"She's a dream ride, she's got a lovely mind, a great attitude and I still think she's not the finished article.

"I think there's more to come physically. I sat on her yesterday and she's grown a little bit more. Every time you sit on her she progresses a bit more. I couldn't have been happier with her yesterday."
