Hundred up for Hollie Doyle at Wolverhampton

Hollie Doyle claimed her 100th winner of the year after scoring on the Ed Dunlop-trained Society Lion in a six furlong handicap at Wolverhampton.

Doyle, who won her first Classic success with Nashwa in the French Oaks last month, is now joint-second in the Flat jockeys' championship on 44 winners along with husband Tom Marquand, with William Buick leading the way on 69 winners.

Doyle's 100 winners include Bradsell in the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot, Trueshan in the Northumberland Plate last month, plus Outbox in Qatar in February in Qatar and Well Disposed in the Group 3 Mehl Mulhens-Trophy in Germany.

The rider picked up a personal best 172 winners in 2021, improving on her 151 the previous year.

Speaking to Sky Sports Racing, Doyle said: "It's good to have got that done. When you do it once you want to do it every year so it's great. It's been a good few weeks so hopefully it can continue.

"It's always nice to try to better the year before, but I understand at some point it's going to be hard to do that, but I'll give it a go.

"I've had some prestigious winners this year and been getting plenty of opportunities, so that's what you want."
