Qatar Nassau Stakes - Minding in a league of her own

Who's the best middle-distance filly in Europe, never mind the age? Minding, it is.
The 3-year old superstar is gunning for yet another Group 1 when she takes on 4 rivals that look overmatched in the Nassau Stakes. Having taken the 1000 Guineas, she was unlucky to get beat by a bob in the Irish equivalent, before easily trouncing the Oaks field at Epsom. She confirmed her superiority by winning the Pretty Polly in another procession. Any reproduction of that kind of form should see her easily land this race.

Maybe the elder filly Beautiful Romance could offer some pretensions should Minding fail to fire. The Godolphin team would love to get one against their Ballydoyle rivals and it would not be the first time that they play spoilers in the legendary skirmishes between the 2 superpowers; think of the battle between Fantastic Light and Galileo, the Ascot duel between Rewilding and So You Think, both occasions where Godolphin came out on top.

Minding is however impossible to oppose. Bar accident, she should win.

Win: Minding
