CHROUSSA made a very encouraging debut behind the long odds-on Perhaps at Leopardstown and the winner did the form proud when runner-up in a Group 3 there on Thursday. Jim Bolger's filly has a superb pedigree and will take all the beating. The winner's trainer is represented by Snow, who started odds-on for her debut here last month but could only finish fifth behind Avenue Gabriel, and the newcomer Tapestry, the third foal of Moyglare and Marcel Boussac winner Rumplestiltskin, who has already produced two winners. Flying Jib made a nice start over 6f here in May and will make progress while Three D Alexander's dam has produced winners with her first two foals.
