Sultanina won the Nassau Stakes on the final day at Glorious Goodwood to deliver a third consecutive triumph in the race for trainer John Gosden.

Sultanina (11-2) under jockey William Buick, beat the 7-4 favourite Narniyn by one-and-a-half lengths.

Buick said: "I'm absolutely delighted for everyone - it's fantastic. This filly has really stepped up to the plate.

On securing his third victory in the race in as many years, Gosden said: "It's lovely. The Aga Khan's filly [Narniyn] is a really good filly to come over and is a tough nut to break.

"The last furlong and a half was a right duel between the pair."
