Thursday Nassau Throwback Race

Nassau Stakes

The Nassau Stakes takes centre stage at Glorious Goodwood today and we have looked back at last year's renewal and analysed how it could fair to this terms resumption of the event.

Last year's contests was all focused around the international element of the race with Deirdre from Japan swopping up the rail late on to snatch the Group One contest under a superb ride by Oisin Murphy.

Mehdaayih for John Gosden lead from the front all the way up until the final 100 yards, just being outstayed and the handler will be hoping to put that right this season with Nazeef.

Last year's winner is seeking a double in the event but faces a much tougher field this term with French Oaks winner Fancy Blue currently leading the market.
