Sky Sports Racing ambassador Hollie Doyle goes in search of a dream first Classic victory in Sunday's Prix de Diane at Chantilly, live on Sky Sports Racing.
After a busy week at Royal Ascot I will be flying to France on Sunday to ride my boss Imad Alsagar's homebred Nashwa in the French Oaks, the Prix de Diane Longines (3.00) over ten-and-a-half furlongs at Chantilly.
I have been itching to get back on board this lovely filly since her courageous third in the Cazoo Oaks over a mile-and-a-half trip that just stretched her stamina that bit too far.

The turn off foot she's inherited from her sire Frankel should prove a vital part of her armoury over the shorter distance and she has the credentials to run a massive race.
Nashwa proved her aptitude for this kind of trip when impressing in a Listed race at Newbury on the run up to Epsom.
John and Thady Gosden have been happy with her since. She's ideally drawn in stall two and I don't think the predicted easy ground should pose any issues.
It's already been a memorable week thanks to Bradsell's amazing performance in the Coventry but to cap it off with my first Classic win would realise my biggest dreams.
