Nassau Stakes 2012

Frankel is a machine, a money machine. His odds might be prohibitive but at least there is the certainty of a return. The exotics with Farhh was certainly very forthcoming. Like the handicappers are saying, Frankel won't improve his 140-rating until he moves to ten furlongs. That's where everyone wants to see him run, against the likes of Cirrus des Aigles and Nathaniel. Game on.

Glorious Goodwood closes on Saturday with the Nassau Stakes being the main attraction. To my mind, the best ten furlong filly in training today is Izzi Top from the John Gosden stable and I think she'll be tough to beat in the Group 1 race. She's undefeated in 3 races this year and is the clear form pick of the race. The Fugue and Nahrain seem to be her main opponents, but if she's on song, the Pivotal filly is certain to be in the first 3. Izzi Top as an each-way looks the certainty of the week-end, and it might be worth going all out for her win.

Win: Izzi Top
Each-way: Izzi Top
