Lillie Langtry looks set to put in a very strong performance in the Group One, Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket today. The quality three year old will be taking on a quality field including the very impressive French 1000 Guineas winner Special Duty. We believe Lillie Langtry is back to her very best so is outstanding value at 2/1. Let’s take a look at the market.
2/1 Lillie Langtry
3/1 Special Duty
10/1 Music Show
11/1 Gile Na Greine
Special Duty will surely be backed down prior to the off, although we fully expect Little Langtry to start as favourite. It seems like a two horse race as the other 6 runners look a class behind the two market leaders.
Special duty had Gile Na Greine and Music show well beaten in the Newmarket Gineas. Lilly Langtry also had those two behind her plus Jackqueline Quest. Perhaps the key to the form is that Jackqueline Quest beat Special Duty by a short head in the Newmarket race but lost the race in the Stewards room.
Perhaps the only slight danger to Lillie Langtry is one of the older fillies Strawberrydaiguiri who has won 6 of her last 7 starts. We feel though that Lillie Langtry is simply too good so is our nap for today.
