British raiders Music Show, Spacious and Jacqueline Quest feature among seven runners in Saturday’s Coolmore Fusaichi Pegasus Matron Stakes at Leopardstown.

Mick Channon’s Music Show arrives in great form having won the Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket before finishing second to Goldikova in the Prix Rothschild.

The James Fanshawe-trained Spacious was second to Music Show in the Falmouth and is still seeking an elusive first Group One triumph, while Henry Cecil’s Jacqueline Quest needs to bounce back after disappointing in a Goodwood Group Three.

The pick of the home quartet is undoubtedly Dermot Weld’s Bethrah, who is making her first racecourse appearance since winning the Irish 1000 Guineas in May.

Aidan O’Brien runs Falmouth fifth Lillie Langtry, while Hen Night and Gile Na Greine complete the line-up.
