The 2020 Nassau Stakes is the Group 1 highlight of the third day of the 2020 Qipco Goodwood Festival. The race is run over one mile one furlong and 197 yards and it has attracted seven interesting runners.
One Voice makes the trip from Ireland after winning a Group 3 race over a similar trip two starts ago. She was then made the favourite for a Group 2 but disappointed there and takes on better rivals here.
Lavendar’s Blue is another whose form this season needs improving on if she’s to take this. She could improve for her first run of the season under first-time jockey booking William Buick, but she had won her two previous seasonal debuts. Queen Power is another whose form this season falls short of the best form on offer, having already finished behind some of her rivals.
Deirdre won last year’s edition of the Nassau Stakes as a 5-year-old and returns as a 6-year-old this year to try and win it again. She can’t be dismissed but she hasn’t won again since and the form of last year’s race looks poor with hindsight.
Nazeef deserves to be the favourite after winning her last six races but her form has a solid if unspectacular look to it. What is impressive about her is her turn of foot and, if she stays 10-furlongs at her first attempt at the trip, that will be a potent weapon. But her stamina is unproven and it isn’t guaranteed on breeding.
Magic Wand has some excellent form at 10-furlongs and she also showed plenty of speed to win at a mile against her own sex on her seasonal reappearance. However, she places more often than she wins and is at her best on rattling fast ground. Ryan Moore also gets off her to ride another horse that runs in the colours of Tabor, Magnier, and Smith.
Fancy Blue is our tip, as this is the horse that Ryan Moore has chosen to ride after she won the French Oaks last time. The form of that race looks strong, as she beat the Royal Ascot winner Alpine Star into second, and she’s fancied to have the necessary blend of speed and stamina to see off the opposition. Three-year-olds also have the best record in the Nassau Stakes, having won six of the last eight renewals.
