This looks a case of Ballydoyle versus the UK. TAPESTRY heads the home contingent and she had her stablemate Perhaps behind in the Group 2 Debutante Stakes over the course and distance last time. She was still regarded as inexperienced but quickened well off a fast pace and can remain unbeaten. The runner-up had finished behind another Aidan O'Brien filly in Wonderfully at Leopardstown earlier but the winner was well beaten in the Albany Stakes at Ascot by today's rival Kiyoshi, who hasn't run subsequently. Charles Hills' filly could turnout to be top-class so it's a very interesting scenario, especially with another Royal Ascot winner Rizeena, successful in the Queen Mary, still in top form.
