NAUSHA BECOMES A NEW GROUP WINNER FOR KINGMAN

The Roger Varian trained daughter of KINGMAN sprang a surprise victory in the Musidora Stakes Gr.3 at York today (15th May).

The 14-1 shot finished strongly to win by a neck under Andrea Atenzi, beating Frankellina (FRANKEL) and Entitle (DANSILI) who dead-heated for second place.

Roger Varian said: "I was sure she’d stay. We probably chose the wrong race on her reappearance at Kempton. We were dipping our toe in to see if she was a Guineas filly but she didn’t really handle things that day. I was really delighted with this performance. She'll probably be left in the Oaks tomorrow but we'll consider all options." 

Nausha was cut to 14-1 for the Oaks after her victory and also holds an entry for the French Oaks.
