Don't see what the lad has done wrong really
He is not working for the stronger side of Godolphin and has not really had the ammunition with SBS
Appleby yard has a much stronger team and he does not get to ride them
no doubt being used as a scapegoat if you aint got the horses dont matter how good a jockey you are

I think James should leave for this own good. If a team is not going to back you its not going to help the development of your career . He would be far better free lance and it would be a good test on his ability .

Think Godolphin need to move on from Bin Suroor, don't get me wrong superb trainer back in the day, but clearly hasn't moved with the times. I can't remember the last time he had a genuine G1 horse in his yard? Poets Voice/Dubawi?

It's all about getting the right trainer, Appleby is progressing nicely and Fabre has done well for them in a short space of time with Usherette & Territories.

Really interesting views. Personally i think he'd be better off leaving now. Gain a relationship with a trainer or a couple over the winter. Come on Danny Tudhope is riding for Saeed tomorrow, is he really a better jockey than Doyle? No is the answer.

I'd be really interested in knowing if this is Saeed's view or John Ferguson's.

So this whole saga just has another twist.

On wednesday Kevin Stott rides for Saaed Bin Suroor and James Doyle rides for Charlie Appleby yet the 2nd race James Doyle rides for Saaed with Kevin Stott not having a ride in the race.

So how is James Doyle not good enough to ride in the first race but good enough for the 2nd. Saaed is surely dipping himself in a big whole here.

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't Doyle still retained by Godolphin themselves? If so then that's probably why, Appelby's horse will be the Godolphin first string as Stott is riding in the second string colours, and in the next race Doyle's ride is the only Godolphin runner in the race.

Cant quite believe the lad is staying with them he is a bit weak IMO your boss tells you your not
good enough anymore (when he has done not one thing wrong) but i might use you when I want
for me a professional could not get a bigger slap in the face friend or no friend he should have
walked. Plainly been used as a scapegoat or there is something more serious behind this. He really
should have given them the bird and go freelance he will get plenty of rides he is well thought of by
other trainers i find the whole thing puzzling.

Goes and wins on that SBS horse as well... though it looked a weak maiden considering the 2nd was beaten 39l on debut

Sorry but this must be the final straw for Doyle.. De Sousa is riding for Saeed on Thursday. A jockey who they axed for Doyle a few years ago not rides for them..

Another winner for De Sousa for them. They should just admit they made a mistake getting rid of him and sign him back up
