    Probable Aim on Pretty Polly by Nashwa in Upcoming Sports Event

    Nashwa’s Next Move: A Trip to Ireland?

    It seems like Nashwa, the dual Group One winner, may be bypassing Royal Ascot this year. Instead, it looks like the four-year-old filly will make her debut trip to Ireland for a third top-level prize against her own sex at Curragh.

    A Remarkable Three-Year-Old Campaign

    Trained by John and Thady Gosden, Nashwa had an impressive three-year-old campaign where she claimed Classic honors in Prix de Diane and added further Group One riches in Nassau Stakes at Goodwood. Despite brave efforts in defeat for both Prix de l’Opera and Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf that followed later that season, Imad Al Sagar-owned Nashwa emerged victorious.

    The Disappointing Start of Season For Nashwa

    However, things didn’t go as expected when she was beaten on her return to action finishing over four lengths behind Above The Curve in the Group Two Prix Corrida at Saint-Cloud. But Teddy Grimthorpe is not worried about it; he believes sometimes older horses take longer than we think to come back into form.

    “She has come out the Prix Corrida fine. She needed it and had a good blow afterwards,” said Grimthorpe.

    Grimthorpe adds; there are going to be other opportunities for her to take on colts but if they can get her back on track for Pretty Polly then that would definitely be their preferred option instead of Prince Of Wales’s stakes because they hope it might be easier to win.

    “The Prince of Wales’s is an option, but I would say the preferred option would be the Pretty Polly,” said Grimthorpe.

    The Upcoming Trip to Ireland

    Although plans are still being finalized, there’s a possibility that Nashwa will compete with Above The Curve over 10 furlongs on July 1. As for her future races, connections are keen to keep her at similar trips this summer and continue winning big prizes.

    “There is the likes of the Eclipse, Juddmonte International and Irish Champion; equally so there’s Romanet, Opera and Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf at the end of it. So there are quite a few good options for her mainly over ten furlongs and everyone seems pretty comfortable with that trip at the moment,” added Grimthorpe.

    In conclusion, Nashwa looks set to have an exciting time ahead as she continues competing in top-level competitions while trying to maintain excellent form throughout this season. And we can’t wait to see how things turn out during her debut trip to Ireland!
