Tattersalls Falmouth Stakes Guide

1. Beshaayir

T - William Haggas

J - Frankie Dettori

One of Sheikh Rashid Dalmook's top individuals; this four-year-old has not stopped improving ever since making her debut back in August of 2017.

A regular at Ascot last term, she held good form behind this year's subsequent Royal Hunt Cup runner-up Clon Coulis, after winning a nice fillies handicap exactly this time last year.

She closed her campaign off with an easy win back in Listed company here at Newmarket, and opened her account this season with a smart display up in class in a Group Two at the Curragh over two of today's rivals.

Surely a big contender on that basis.

2. I Can Fly

T - Aidan O'Brien

J - Ryan Moore

Been a busy filly this term, and once again showed her best comes at Ascot Racecourse when third to Move Swiftly in the Group Two Duke Of Cambridge Stakes.

Went closest to Roaring Lion in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes last October, but pretty modest strike rate in general elsewhere.

Pick of her form also comes on soft ground, but represents a top stable who can easily turn things round.

3. One Master

T - William Haggas

J - James Doyle

Won the Group One Prix de la Foret last year Longchamp, and led briefly when finishing third in the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Probably strongest form claims here, but lacks a bit of consistency in her others appearances - disappointing on return when fourth at the Curragh behind two of today's rivals.

Trips to America and Hong Kong never worked out, but should go close once more remaining on home soil.

4. Veracious

T - Sir Michael Stoute

J - Oisin Murphy

Has not progressed as well as expected to do, but patience is very much the name of the game for anyone trained by Sir Michael Stoute.

Three starts this season and never better than third, though her Epsom place was smart behind Anna Nerium.

Fourth to Move Swiftly in the Duke Of Cambridge Stakes - a length down on I Can Fly, so looks a potential improver on that here.

5. Mot Juste

T - Roger Varian

J - David Egan

Despite finishing second in the Nell Gwyn, Mot Juste finished unplaced and way out of contention in the 1,000 Guineas here in May.

Off since, her best form still comes from flat racing headquarters, winning a nice Group Three contest at the end of last season.

Still lightly raced, but will need to rise up to the occasion for this.

6. Qabala

T - Roger Varian

J - Andrea Atzeni

Qabala returns after a short break for Roger Varian after flopping in the Irish 1,000 Guineas - of which she did post an abnormal scope sample afterwards.

She opened her campaign with a win here in the Nell Gwyn before running with much credit in the English Classic equivalent, when on the wrong side of some possible stall bias.

Won her debut here back in September last year, and this lightly raced filly of Scat Daddy should definitely be back to her best.

When The Fun Stops. Stop.
