CHROUSSA finished close up behind Perhaps and Tapestry in her two opening runs and was thought good enough to go to Royal Ascot for the Group 3 Princess Margaret Stakes. She showed up well for a long way before weakening quickly and will find this much more to her liking. Sophie's World put the experience of her opening run to good use with a fine effort behind Colour Blue at Galway a week ago and normal progress will see her in the frame while Komitoe got no sort of run on her debut at Dundalk and will have come on for the experience. Scalabrina was behind in that latter race and looks held while Principessa Ava looked in need of further when staying on over 7f at Galway.
