Gosden duo top Nassau field

Thu, 02 August 2012

John Gosden's Izzi Top and The Fugue feature among eight fillies and mares declared for the Markel Insurance Nassau Stakes.

The Clarehaven trainer has already collected multiple top-level prizes during a fantastic summer and he has every chance of grabbing further Group One glory in the feature event on the final day of Glorious Goodwood.

Last year's Oaks third Izzi Top has taken her game to a whole new level as a four-year-old, winning each of her three starts and completing the hat-trick with a brilliant performance in the Pretty Polly Stakes.

The Fugue is a year younger than her stable companion and was also placed in the Oaks at Epsom, where many had her down as the moral winner having suffered major traffic problems.

Oaks heroine Was is the sole representative for Aidan O'Brien, while Roger Varian's first Group One winner Nahrain aims to bounce back following a disappointing seasonal reappearance. Clinical, Lay Time, Sea Of Heartbreak and Timepiece complete the line-up.
