Special on falmouth duty

Fortunate dual 1,000 Guineas winner Special Duty is on course for the Etihad Airways Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket on July 7.

Criquette Head-Maarek's filly created history by being awarded both the English and French Classics in the stewards' room and is one of 36 entries in the Group One race.

However, she may be partnered by a new jockey as regular partner Stephane Pasquier is still recovering from injury.

"Special Duty is absolutely on course for the Falmouth Stakes. She worked with a lead horse on Tuesday morning and she looks fine at the moment," said Head-Maarek.
