Day two of Newmarket’s Moet and Chandon July Festival takes place on Friday 10 July, when the Group 1 Falmouth Stakes takes centre stage. Seven runners are set to go to post for the 2020 Falmouth Stakes and it’s an exciting clash between lots of top fillies and mares from the last few seasons.
Three-year-olds have won three of the last four editions of the Falmouth Stakes but Under The Stars is the only representative from this season’s Classic generation. She did brilliantly to win a Listed Race from a wide draw last time over 7-furlongs, but her stamina ebbed away at today’s trip of a mile when finishing sixth in the 1,000 Guineas.

Billesdon Brook boasts two Group 1 victories at Newmarket, including one over last year’s Falmouth Stakes winner Veracious, but those wins did come on the Rowley Mile Course. She needs to prove she’s as effective on the July course and, along with Agincourt, has already finished behind the re-opposing Nazeef this season.
Nazeef has now won her last five races and her turn-of-foot could be a potent weapon in the final stages. But she does have 6lb to find with one of her stablemates, whose form currently looks stronger.
Terebellum is our Falmouth Stakes tip. John Gosden’s 4-year-old had her first five starts over 10-furlongs, including a win on the July Course. But she showed plenty of speed when finishing second at Royal Ascot, three lengths in front of a pack of horses that included Bil
