Nashwa gave Hollie Doyle the first classic success after a thrilling victory at the Diane Awards at Chantilly.

Frankel’s mare, who was very impressed by winning the first two starts of the season at Haydock and Newbury, was finally seen finishing third at Epsom’s Oaks. Just 16 days later it turned out to be a French equivalent, and the young John and Taddy Gosden were 7-4 favorites under her record-breaking rider and did their job in a fixed style.

A smart start from her low draw meant that Nashwa stood out from off, and she often moved straight home with the fancy agave. After seeing her off, La Parisienne, a 50-1 shot, gave power to the home and threw a challenge in the second half, but Nashwa and Doyle brilliantly knucked down and passed the post slightly forward. rice field.

“It feels great. When I was pulling it up, I couldn’t find a word to really explain it,” Doyle said. “Thanks to a lot of people. Without it [owner] ImadAlSagar I don’t know if I was in a position to get such an opportunity. These types of horses are hard to come across and I’m only 25 years old, so I feel pretty lucky early in my career.

“I felt very vulnerable at the 2 halon poles. I’m not going to lie. It was a confusing race, and I felt in advance that someone would be a bit more paced and decisive than them. I didn’t want to be where I was, but she was very relaxed and happy to have a little socializing on either side. She is versatile and responsive as needed. She dug really deep when the second horse came around my waist. It was nice to see. “

The rider was blessed shortly after defeating her husband Tom Mercand, who finished in 7th place on a jelly. Doyle added: “I think he was as happy as I was. We were always very happy with each other so I think he was happy. I was pretty confident in Epsom. We were on a trip I felt that coming back was what she needed and that it proved to be the answer. She holds many classes and could be even better next year. I think.”
