The Donnacha O’Brien-trained Fancy Blue has claimed a thrilling renewal of the Nassau Stakes - today's feature at Glorious Goodwood.

The former Prix de Diane winner, who went off at 11-4, edged out Aidan's O'Brien's One Voice by a neck, with the John Gosden-trained Nazeef in third.

For jockey Ryan Moore it was a third win in the Group One contest, having previously piloted Minding and Winter to victory in the race.

"We were very happy with her coming into the race," Donnacha O’Brien said of the win on ITV Racing. "Her work had been really good, she was in fantastic form and everything had gone perfectly to plan, so we were full of confidence.

"We'll give her a little break now as she's had a busy start to the year and there's not much for her for a few weeks.

"We might look at Irish Champions Weekend, whether that's going back to a mile for the Matron Stakes or running in the Irish Champion Stakes, we'll see.

"After that we'll probably go on to Arc weekend, where she could run in either the Prix de l'Opera or the Arc itself.

"After that it will either be the Breeders' Cup or there is a race for her in Japan in the middle of November - the Queen Elizabeth, I think it is.

"We're not really sure what's going on in America and what will happen to the Breeders' Cup, but they're the options we're looking at."
