Last year's Nell Gwyn Stakes winner Music Show went on to collect the Group 1 Falmouth Stakes.

At Klampenborg in Copenhagen, Denmark's premier race, the Scandinavian Open Championship, will also be sponsored by Lanwades, initially for a three-year period.
Lanwades owner Kirsten Rausing said: "I am delighted to be able to sponsor a Group race for fillies in my home town, Newmarket, and also to be in a position to support racing at Klampenborg, where I had my first home-bred Classic winner, MoreMahal, in 1971.

"Lanwades now sponsors races in the UK, Ireland, Sweden and Denmark, reflecting our enthusiasm for the thoroughbred racehorse internationally, and the ties of friendship the sport produces."
Lanwades' existing sponsored races include the Listed Jagersro Sprint on dirt at Jagersro, Malmo, Sweden, the Listed Lanwades and Staffordstown Studs Stakes at the Curragh and the Listed Denny Cordell Lavarack and Lanwades Stud Fillies Stakes at Gowran Park.
