Doyle has now set records in each of the last three years.
Meanwhile, fellow jockey Jason Hart chases his own landmark achievement this afternoon on board Royal Patronage in the Vertem Futurity Trophy Stakes.
A win in the Group One race at Doncaster would be the biggest of Hart’s career.
Since being beaten by Native Trail, Europe’s top two-year-old, in a Sandown maiden in June, Royal Patronage his won his three starts.

But much of the post-race focus following victories in the Acomb Stakes at York and, particularly, when he pegged back Coroebus who had looked home and hosed in the Royal Lodge Stakes, has been on his beaten rivals.
Hart said: ‘His form is rock-solid. He hasn’t got the respect he deserves.
‘I have ridden a lot of horses who give you everything but to have his class and give you everything is something else.’

Hart was champion apprentice in 2013.
Two years later, a fall interrupted his career after he ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament in a knee.
But his career has regained momentum.
With 91 wins this year, Hart is within touching distance of his first calendar century.
