WHEN Hollie Doyle walked into Ascot for British Champions Day 12 months ago, she could already reflect on a fabulous season.

With 92 winners in the British flat jockeys’ championship, she was already booked for fourth position, the highest a woman has ever finished. She had already recorded her maiden Group 3 and Group 2 wins. She had already ridden her first Royal Ascot winner. She had already ridden a brilliant five-timer at Windsor in August. And she was well on track to setting a new record of the highest number of winners for a female jockey in the calendar year (151), breaking her own record from the year before in the process.
