Sky Sports Racing ambassador Hollie Doyle assesses her chances at Newbury on Saturday and looks ahead to Deauville on Sunday and Catterick on Monday.

Dreamloper improving at the right time

Saturday’s Group Two BetVictor Hungerford Stakes (3.30) at Newbury looks wide open and my mount DREAMLOPER could be improving at just the right time.

Ed Walker’s filly made a smooth transition from handicaps to win the Group Three Valiant Stakes over one mile at Ascot by a commanding margin for champion jockey Oisin Murphy.

She won’t mind the drop back to seven furlongs in what should be a strongly-run race. I’m told she’s done well since Ascot so there’s every chance she can bridge the ratings gap with the fancied runners.
