Doyle has been in great form this season and as her only booked ride is at Lingfield’s evening meeting she would not miss any engagements.

? Templegate’s Top Tips ?

By Templegate

  • NAP Brighton (3.40) – Harbour Rock: ‘A progressive horse who should find more improvement over this trip’. (add to your betslip)
  • NEXT BEST Wolverhampton (1.50) – Corinthia Knight: ‘Takes a big drop in grade and will take all the beating’. (add to your betslip)
  • TREBLE Newmarket (7.35) – Titi Makfi: ‘Not beaten far on her last two starts and can bounce back to winning ways’. (add to your betslip)

Ascot’s Nick Smith said: “Michelle is feeling a little better today, I understand, and hopefully by tomorrow she’ll be fighting fit.

“As this is a unique event it made sense to put plans in place, we didn’t want to be rushing around in the morning looking for somebody to step in.

“Hollie has a ride at Lingfield at 6.10pm but as the last race here is 4pm she won’t miss anything.”

Payne will have to prove her fitness on raceday at Ascot, said the British Horseracing Authority.

“If Michelle Payne is not able to take her rides in the Shergar Cup, apprentice Hollie Doyle will be substituted in her place.

“Hollie Doyle will be entitled to claim her 3lb allowance.”
