Coolmore, trainer Aidan O&rsquo;Brien, and jockey Ryan Moore won the first Group 1 of the Glorious Goodwood meeting when The Gurkha took down the Sussex Stakes on Wednesday, and the trio will be expected to win the only other Group 1 on the Goodwood menu this week, the Nassau on Saturday, with the filly Minding.Where The Gurkha had at least one worthy opponent in Galileo Gold, whom he beat by a neck, Minding appears to stand in her own class Saturday. Minding is the odds&#45;on favorite to beat just four rivals in the Nassau, which covers just less than 1 1/4 miles on turf forecast to be good to firm. None of her four rivals is proven at the highest level, while Minding has won five Group 1 races. As a 3&#45;year&#45;old, Minding carries 123 pounds, 10 fewer than older horses in the Nassau, but there is just one such runner, Beautiful Romance, as Swiss Jewel, Jemayel, and Queen&rsquo;s Trust also are 3&#45;year&#45;olds.Minding has never finished worse than second in her nine starts, and had she not suffered a shocking loss in the Irish 1000 Guineas, where she was beaten a head by an inferior rival named Jet Set, Minding would be on a six&#45;race Group 1 winning streak. She caught soft ground in the Irish Guineas, and though she has won on wet going before, she probably doesn&rsquo;t favor it, and staying on top of the surface Saturday only enhances her formidable status.Minding stays 1 1/2 miles, as she showed in winning the English Oaks, but also has enough speed to match up with high&#45;class milers. The Nassau distance should hit her sweet spot, and barring something entirely unforeseen, Minding will win again and continue what is turning into an epic 3&#45;year&#45;old campaign.Post time for the Nassau is 10:10 a.m. Eastern.
