Rider Hollie Doyle, who fell after her mount broke down at Wolverhampton on Monday evening, has been diagnosed with a broken elbow and will face a spell on the sidelines. A date to return to the saddle has not been set.

A winner of the G1 Prix de Diane aboard Nashwa (GB) (Frankel {GB}) in 2022, the first female rider to win a Classic was riding Archie Watson's 4-7 race favourite The Perfect Crown (Ire) (Hallowed Crown {Aus}) when he broke down on the final turn. Doyle was up after the incident and went to see a specialist on Tuesday.

Husband and fellow jockey Tom Marquand said, “She has broken her elbow. We don't really know how long she will be out for as she literally only had her MRIs last night. It is one of those fiddly things, as you could put a number on it and you'd be wrong every time anyway.

“To be honest, it is just a case of making sure she gets it right now, because you wouldn't want to stop halfway through the summer. It is frustrating.”

Besides her Classic triumph, Doyle enjoyed a 151-winner season, and was second to William Buick in the Flat Jockeys' Championship.
