Nashwa swoops from last to first for Nassau Stakes glory

Hollie Doyle and Nashwa claimed a second Group One success with a brilliant performance in the Qatar Nassau Stakes at Goodwood.

Following on from a hard-fought all-the-way French Oaks victory, the John and Thady Gosden-trained filly showed a completely different style of running on this occasion.

Dropped out last in the very early stages behind a slow pace, Doyle gradually moved closer to the main body of runners.

However, that meant Nashwa had to make up the ground in the hottest part of the race when all her rivals were quickening, too – but she was well up to the task.

As Dreamloper faded Fonteyn and Aristia were the main challengers, but Nashwa had too many guns and the 6-5 favourite beat Aristia by a length and three-quarters. Doyle’s husband, Tom Marquand, finished third on Lilac Road.
