We bring you the 2020 Nassau Stakes result, and details of how you can watch a replay of the race with bet365.

Day three at Glorious Goodwood saw a strong field of fillies enter the stalls ahead of the Nassau Stakes. Japanese raider, Deidre returned to try and defend her title, but found three rivals ahead of her in the market.

During the week, Fancy Blue and Nazeef flip-flopped at the head of the betting a couple of times. Joseph O'Brien's filly was the pick of the punters during the morning, with some obviously fearing the step up in trip wouldn't suit Nazeef.

The best-backed horse as the race drew closer, however, was Aidan O'Brien's Magic Wand. With Ryan Moore partnering Fancy Blue, Frankie Dettori carried the Ballydoyle silks again, and Magic Wand was cut into 5/2 favouritism when the starter sent them on their way.

The well-backed Magic Wand went straight to the front, and she was joined by Fancy Blue after the first furlong. Oisin Murphy posted Deidre out wide, with Nazeef and One Voice on her inside. Queen Power and Lavender's Blue were both keen early on out the back.

Jim Crowley had to give Nazeef a shove at the half-way stage, and the Falmouth Stakes winner drifted towards the rear as the leaders turned on the taps. Fancy Blue put it up to Magic Wand three furlongs out, and Frankie Dettori's mount quickly beat a retreat.

Tom Marquand then angled One Voice off the rail for a crack at Fancy Blue, and the outsider had almost pulled upsides at the furlong pole. Donnacha O'Brien's filly, who had shown plenty of heart when winning the Prix de Diane, did the same again at Goodwood, holding her rival at arm's length to hand her young trainer his first Group One win in Britain.

Nazeef made plenty of late headway to finish second behind Jessica Harrington's mount. Queen Power stayed on for fourth down the centre of the track, with Magic Wand trailing home fifth under Frankie.
