Nick is joined by the Daily Mirror’s David Yates to profile the relentless rise of Hollie Doyle, who yesterday broke her own record for number of winners by a female jockey in a calendar year. Nick also speaks to Ed Vaughan, who provided Hollie with her first Stakes victory and may yet provide him with her first Group One with Dame Maillot at Ascot on Saturday (also his last high profile runner as a UK licensed trainer). Nick catches up with Pyledriver’s trainer William Muir, while Harry Herbert from Highclere Thoroughbred Racing drops in to tells just how surprisingly hard it was to buy horses at Tattersalls Book 2.
Nick is joined by RTE broadcaster Jane Mangan to discuss which horse should be considered the headline act going into British Champions’ Day 2020. Jane gives her views on the bold campaigning of Champion Stakes favourite Magical relative to the rarely seen brilliance of Palace Pier, the heavy favourite in the mile division. This dovetails with the weekly analysis of the TRC Global Rankings from James Willoughby, who also discusses the TRC Top Ten Jockeys. William Haggas joins Nick to talk about the chances of Addeybb and One Master, while Pip Kirkby and Louise Norman tell us more about the ROA and Racing Foundation’s new Racing Relief Fund.
