MUSIC TUNED TO PUT ON A SHOW IN ETIHAD AIRWAYS FALMOUTH STAKES AT NEWMARKET THIS AFTERNOON.





The first 4 races from Newmarket will be covered by the Channel4 Horseracing Team as follows: First race 1.30, 2.00, 2.35, 3.10.


The 4th Race 3.10 MUSIC SHOW will be attempting to clinch a first Group One victory in a stellar renewal of the £185,000 Etihad Airways Falmouth Stakes (3.10pm) at Newmarket today, Wednesday, 7th July, the opening day of the 2010 fabulous Champagne Lanson July Festival meeting.



The mile contest for fillies and mares, which has eight acceptors, is one of the highlights of the three-day meeting at Newmarket’s July Course, which runs from Wednesday, 7th July to Friday, 9th July.



Music Show is already established among the front rank of her generation following a victory in the Group Three Leslie Harrison Memorial Nell Gwyn Stakes over seven furlongs at Newmarket on 14th April and a close third in the Group One Etihad Airways Irish 1,000 Guineas on 23rd May.



The Mick Channon-trained filly, an unfortunate sixth behind the reopposing Special Duty in the StanJames.com 1000 Guineas at Newmarket on May 2, was fourth on her latest outing in the Group One Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot in June, three and three-quarter lengths behind the Aidan O’Brien-trained Lillie Langtry, who will also bid for honours today.



Bruce Raymond, racing manager to Music Show’s owner Jaber Abdullah, revealed yesterday morning: “The latest on Music Show is that she is in top condition. She is looking, if anything, better in her coat than she has done all season, which you would probably expect at this time of year.



“She has a couple of lengths to make up on the principals but she is there with a good chance. Fast ground will be in her favour so we are very hopeful.



“She has been slightly unlucky in her races with the wrong draw and other things going wrong, so while she has ground to make up there is a good chance she can. She deserves it.”



Special Duty, trained in France by Criquette Head-Maarek, has the strange distinction of being awarded two Classic victories - the 1000 Guineas and the Poule d’Essai des Pouliches - in the stewards’ room.



The remaining two three-year-olds in the eight-strong field are the Mark Johnston-trained Group Three Jersey Stakes heroine Rainfall and Gile Na Greine, runner-up in the Coronation Stakes for trainer Jim Bolger.



The older contingent is headed by the Sir Michael Stoute-trained four-year-old Strawberrydaiquiri who held the year older Spacious by a short-head to win the Group Two Windsor Forest Stakes at Royal Ascot. The latter, trained by James Fanshawe, was third to the great Goldikova in last year’s Etihad Airways Falmouth Stakes.


They all have THE CHESTNUT THREE YEAR OLD FILLY 'SPECIAL DUTY TOM QUEALLY 3 8-10' trainer Mme C HEAD- MAAREK TEAM (FR) for K ABUDULLA to beat. SPECIAL DUTY this time runs with a different rider (through injury) so what effect will this have on SPECIAL DUTY?


THE SMART FOUR YEAR OLD GREY FILLY 'STRAWBERRYDAIQUIRI RYAN MOORE 4 9-5' trainer SIR M.STOUTE TEAM for MRS R J JACOBS .....


But how will this race actually pan out to be? If the jockey's envolved use unsporting careless tactics culminating in putting these fillies through a muddled, tough and rough race, it will be very disappointing indeed.
