Nassau Next For Qualify

Monday, 20th July 2015

Meanwhile, Qualify (Fastnet Rock-Perihelion, by Galileo) is likely to have her next start in the Gr1 Nassau Stakes at Glorious Goodwood after her withdrawal from Saturday's Irish Oaks. The English Oaks winner was last seen finishing sixth behind the classy Jack Hobbs in the Irish Derby on 27 June. "We were very worried about the ground (at the Curragh)," trainer Aidan O'Brien told At The Races. "We just thought it was safer to not mess up the routine and instead have a look at Goodwood. We're very happy with her." Qualify became the first northern hemisphere Gr1 winner for her Australian-bred sire Fastnet Rock when scoring a surprise victory at odds of 50-1 in last month's Epsom Oaks.
