2024 Nassau Stakes Betting Odds at Goodwood racecourse

Thursday, 01 August 2024

Blue Rose Cen is performing at a high level and the three-year-old looks well-weighted for this Group 1 encounter, with the horse looking like the one to beat in the Qatar Nassau Stakes. This is set to be a stern test of the runner’s credentials, with Nashwa coming to the fore and perhaps the four-year-old will lower the colours of her counterpart.

Soul Sister could be capable of a big race over one mile and two furlongs. This is another runner from the John & Thady Gosden stable, with Al Husn having an outing for trainer Roger Varian. Via Sistina is performing at a high level for trainer George Boughey, with Above The Curve and Running Lion also in the mix.

2023 Nassau Stakes Tips

Blue Rose Cen has been racking up the wins and perhaps we’ll see secure another notable victory when she runs at the Glorious Goodwood meeting. Christopher Head trains a horse who hasn’t yet tasted defeat this season, with the runner having secured five consecutive triumphs and the latest of these came at Chantilly.

There was a four-length win in the Prix de Diane Longines over one mile, two and a half furlongs, with the horse previously securing the spoils in the Emirates Poule d'Essai des Pouliches at Longchamp and that came after another victory on testing ground where there was a victory in the Prix de la Grotte over one mile.

Nashwa runs for the John & Thady Gosden stable, with the horse able to win by five lengths in the 2023 Falmouth Stakes. Sent off at betting odds of 4/1, Hollie Doyle was able to give the horse a tremendous spin and that came after a defeat on the all-weather at Newcastle Racecourse where the 8/11 favourite was beaten by a 3/1 shot.

Soul Sister has scored wins at Epsom and York this season, with the horse trading as the 8/5 favourite for the recent Grand Prix de Paris where the runner was beaten into third place although we’re still talking about the Epsom Oaks winner and that came after a surprise success in the Musidora Stakes over one mile, two and a half furlongs.


2022 Nassau Stakes Tips

Nashwa has claimed three wins in four races this season and she has bold claims when it comes to the 2022 Nassau Stakes, with John Gosden having high hopes for his three-year-old at the Glorious Goodwood Festival. On 19 June, the horse was able to win the Prix de Diane Longines by a short neck.

Hollie Doyle is likely to be on board the horse to compete in this one mile and two furlong encounter, with the horse having previously run third in the Epsom Oaks. Having been sent off at betting odds of 4/1, she was beaten by Tuesday and Emily Upjohn on that occasion.

Inspiral is another John Gosden-trained runner that needs to be respected, with the three-year-old boasting an unbeaten record in her career to date. It has been five straight wins and Frankie Dettori was able to ride the charge to a victory in the Coronation Stakes at the Royal Ascot meeting.

On that occasion, the horse was triumphant by nearly five lengths making this an outstanding performance and there was a victory in the bet365 Fillies’ Mile although La Petite Coco could actually oblige as a four-year-old and there was plenty to like about her win in the Pretty Polly Stakes at The Curragh.


Love and Snowfall Betting Favourites for 2021 Nassau Stakes

The 2021 Nassau Stakes takes place on 29 July 2021, with this being run over one mile and two furlongs on a right-handed track. The purse is nearly £350,000 for the winner of the race, with this attracting plenty of star names and trainers.

Love is high in the Nassau Stakes betting market, with this filly having proven untouchable in the past couple of seasons and Aidan O’Brien has a potential superstar on his hands, with a victory in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes marking him out for greatness after a cracking ride by Ryan Moore.

Love previously claimed a sensational hat-trick in 2020, with the Irish raider having landed victory in the 1,000 Guineas, Epsom Oaks and the Darley Yorkshire Oaks, so there is every chance we’ll see the filly follow up her 2021 success at Ascot with another win here.

However, Snowfall could also be a leading contender, with the three-year-old beating the highly-fancied Noon Star in the Tattersalls Musidora Stakes on 12 May before kicking on to secure a victory in the Cazoo Oaks, with this meaning that we’ll see the highly-rated fillies going head to head.

Who Are the Other 2021 Nassau Stakes Challengers?

Audarya is an interesting five-year-old who has run once this season and the James Fanshawe-trained runner was close to Love in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes and could be capable of running an even bigger race at Goodwood, having previously won the Breeders Cup Fillies and Mares Turf at Keeneland back in November.

Wonderful Tonight is another interesting runner and the horse is certainly capable of building on a victory in the Group 2 Hardwicke Stakes at Royal Ascot, with the William Buick-trained charge having fended off Broome for that particular win.

The History of the Goodwood Nassau Stakes

The recent running of the Nassau Stakes has seen a clutch of three-year-olds all claim a victory, with Fancy Blue winning for trainer Donnacha O’Brien in 2020, while Winter, Minding and Wild Illusion are other three-year-olds who have recently been victorious.

There have been multiple winners of the Nassau Stakes which includes Midday who claimed a consecutive hat-trick of wins during the Glorious Goodwood Festival between 2009-2011. Henry Cecil pulled off a brilliant training achievement although Aidan O’Brien has also proved successful in recent years.
