hollie doyle breaks her own record by claiming 117th win this season at kempton

Hollie Doyle broke her own British record for the most winners in a calendar year by a female jockey at Kempton on Wednesday night.

Doyle won the Unibet 3 Uniboosts A Day Nursery Handicap on 2-1 favourite State Occasion, driving home to win by a short head in a photo finish with Tornadic.

The 24-year-old ended last season with 116 winners — breaking Josephine Gordon’s record of 106 — but this was her 117th of this season, with two and a half months left to add more.

Doyle said: ‘When I broke the record last year, in the back of my mind I was always thinking about breaking it again this year, as I didn’t want it to be a one-off, so I’m delighted to have achieved that goal. 

‘When you think that we missed two months of racing this year, it is amazing. I want to thank all the owners and trainers who have supported me.’

As well as the record, Doyle has also had her first Group winner, on Ed Vaughan’s Dame Malliot in the Princess of Wales’s Stakes at Newmarket.

Arsenal’s ‘top contract negotiator Huss Fahny AXED’

Arsenal‘s top negotiator Huss Fahmy has reportedly become the latest high profile staff member to agree his exit from the club as they continue ‘significant restructuring’ behind the scenes.   

Fahmy has been working as the club’s head of football operations and part of his job role saw him assist with completing contracts and liaising with agents.

The Athletic report that Fahmy will leave at the end of next month after completing a handover as the club continue to overhaul their structure behind the scenes.

Back in August, Sportsmail revealed that Arsenal’s famed global scout Francis Cagigao – the man who discovered Cesc Fabregas – was among the victims of the club’s redundancy cull.

Just days after their euphoric FA Cup victory over Chelsea, the Gunners confirmed the hugely disappointing news that 55 members of staff were to lose their jobs as part of a restructuring due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Cagigao’s departure was swiftly followed by head of football Raul Sanllehi with managing director Vinai Venkatesham replacing him in the role.

Sanllehi joined the Premier League side in February 2018, having previously worked at Barcelona. 

Head of UK scouting Peter Clark along with scout Brian McDermott also departed over the summer, as did first-team rehabilitation co-ordinator Tim Parham. 

The restructuring behind the scenes means that boss Mikel Arteta is closely assisted by Venkatesham and technical director Edu. 

Fahny was tasked with contract negotiation but it is expected Edu will take control of these proceedings, even with the Athletic reporting the club are planning to replace Fahmy.

England’s away UEFA Nations League clash against Belgium moved from Brussels due to 10pm curfew

englands away uefa nations league clash against belgium moved from brussels due to 10pm curfew

England’s UEFA Nations League encounter against Belgium has officially been moved to Leuven due to the 10pm curfew restrictions in Brussels amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Gareth Southgate‘s Three Lions take on Belgium away in the Nations League on November 15, three days after facing the Republic of Ireland in a friendly at Wembley.

But the Belgium clash has been changed from its original venue in the country’s capital – which has a curfew of 10pm to 6am – at the King Baudouin stadium to Den Dreef in Leuven. It is around a 45-minute drive to Leuven from Brussels.

A statement from the country’s governing body read: ‘The Belgian FA was forced to change the venue for these games as a consequence of the Covid-19 related curfew in Brussels, which starts at 10pm local time. 

‘With a match kicking off at 8.45pm local time this would be impossible to meet.

‘Therefore the FA opted for Leuven which also hosts Belgium’s U21 and women’s internationals. In Flanders curfew starts at midnight to 5am.’ 

Roberto Martinez’s Belgium outfit will now play three matches next month in Leuven – the first time they have played outside of Brussels for three years.

Belgium will take on Switzerland in a friendly in Leuven on November 11 before hosting England and Denmark in the Nations League.

The Red Devils will be desperate to get their revenge over England after their narrow 2-1 defeat at Wembley on October 11.

The Three Lions went a goal behind following a penalty from Inter Milan striker and former Manchester United star Romelu Lukaku.

But England turned the game on its head thanks to a Marcus Rashford penalty and a deflected Mason Mount strike in the 64th minute.

However, England were then defeated in their next match against Denmark after Harry Maguire’s early red card cost the Three Lions at Wembley – with Christian Eriksen going on to seal a 1-0 win from the penalty spot.

Southgate’s side currently sit third in their Nations League group on seven points behind Denmark on goal difference while Belgium are top with nine.

It will be the first time in three years that Belgium have played outside of Brussels
