Legatissimo Confirmed For Nassau
Trainer David Wachman has confirmed that English 1,000 Guineas winner Legatissimo will have her next start in the Gr1 Nassau Stakes at Glorious Goodwood next month. Should the Danehill Dancer filly line up in the mile-and-a-quarter fillies and mares feature on 1 August, it will set up a rematch with her two subsequent conquerors Qualify and Diamondsandrubies, who led her home in the Epsom Oaks and Pretty Polly Stakes respectively. With Aidan O'Brien eyeing off the Nassau for the two Fastnet Rock fillies, Wachman is sensing an opportunity to square the ledger. "We're happy with her and Goodwood is the plan at the moment so hopefully everything stays fine until then," Wachman told At The Races. "The winner [Diamondsandrubies] won well in the Pretty Polly, there were no excuses, we were beaten fair and square but we'll try again in the Nassau."
