The highlight of this season's campaign for Music Show was her Group One triumph in the Falmouth Stakes at the July fixture at Newmarket'.

The Mick Channon trained charge came out on top on her seasonal debut in the Nell Gwyn Stakes, also placing third in the Irish 1000 Guineas and runner up in the Prix Rothschild to champion Goldikova.

Racing manager for owner Jaber Abdullah, Bruce Raymond, commented, "Music Show stays in training and will be campaigned from a mile up to a mile and a quarter.

"She showed a great turn of foot to win the Falmouth Stakes, in which they went a true gallop. She is best suited by a strong pace.

"I think she is sure to stay a mile and a quarter and it could be that she actually finds some improvement for going further.

"She is certainly a very high-class filly who hopefully can enjoy another successful season."

Also having the top sprints in her sights is the Brian Meehan trained Lady Of The Desert, staking her claim on the shorter distance events after her victory in the Diadem Stakes and placing second in the Betfred Sprint Cup and the Prix de l'Abbaye.

"Lady Of The Desert will be going for all the top sprints in 2011," he commented on the website

"She was perhaps a bit unfortunate not to win a Group One in 2010 and hopefully she can put that right next season.

"As for where she starts back, she may well come under consideration for a race at the Dubai World Cup meeting."
