Nassau Stakes in Qatar Bloodstock’s sights at Glorious Goodwood

Qatar Bloodstock aims to send a strong team to Glorious Goodwood.

Spokesman John Maxse said: “I think Charlie (Hills) is keen to go to the Nassau with Just The Judge. He wants to step her up to a mile and a quarter, which should suit her as she settles and she is out of a Rainbow Quest mare.

“By the sounds of it, we are going to have a rematch with Sky Lantern at Goodwood. But Sheikh Fahad and Qatar Racing love a challenge so the fact we have been beaten by Sky Lantern twice won’t deter them.

“Trade Storm will run in the Sussex Stakes. He travelled very well in the Summer Mile at the weekend and they hope he will have come on for that. He is a horse who is best held up so if they went a good gallop it would suit him.

“Green Door could also go to Goodwood and Olly Stevens is likely to run Gamesome, a nice Rock Of Gibraltar colt, in a maiden.”
