Can The Ladies Do It?

Lucky 13 for Hayley Turner?

Hayley Turner hopes she can successfully help the new-look Girls team defend their Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup title at Ascot on Saturday.

Nanako Fujita – champion

The Group One-winning rider will make her 13th appearance at the meeting when joining forces with this year’s Women Jockeys’ World Cup winner Nanako Fujita and Australian Jamie Kah, in her attempt to repeat last year’s heroics.

Heading the opposition will be the Great Britain and Ireland team, which features leading Flat jockeys’ championship title contender Danny Tudhope, who is making his debut at the event, dual champion jockey Jamie Spencer and captain Tadhg O’Shea.

Classic-winning rider Gerald Mosse forms part of the European squad, alongside Cristian Demuro and Filip Minarik, while the Rest of the World team is made up of Yuga Kawada, Vincent Ho Chak-Yiu and Mark Zahra.

A flashback to the 2015 Ladies Team

Turner said: “We had a really good team last year with Josie (Gordon) and Hollie Doyle. I don’t know the girls they have got in the team this year as well, but they look to have done amazing for themselves in their respective countries.You are never guaranteed to ride at the meeting as you have to get invited to ride, and I’ve been lucky enough to be asked so many times.”
