Johnb's Saturday’s Tips
MANGO DIVA 9-2 NAP William Hill
MIZOU 3-1 NB William Hill
Mango Diva (NAP)
I always like the Nassau Stakes & we have been spoiled for top-class fillies winning this race in the past with the likes of The Fugue, Peeping Fawn, Ouija Board, Russian Rhythm, Islington, Lailani & not to forget the three-times winner Midday & these winners are only since 2000. But today we have in my opinion a weak line-up & probably the worst Nassau Stakes I have seen.
But I do think we have a strong pick although I will be hoping for a slow pace & the slower the better & it's a real possibility with no real signs of pace in this race. Sir Michael Stoute has won this seven times so hoping for eight today. MANGO DIVA is all about speed & if this a slow pace she can out sprint any of these. Ground & distance will suit her more than most of these today & she had to be my NB of the meeting & my NAP of the day.
2:05 Confessional 20-1
2:40 Oasis Fantasy 9-1
3:15 Mango Diva 9-2 (NB of meeting)
3:50 Ruwaiyan 28-1
4:25 Dutch Connection 3-1
5:00 When Will it End 2-1
5:35 Money Team 6-1
