Qemah expected to improve
Jean-Claude Rouget retains all his faith in Qemah despite her defeat at Lingfield on Saturday.
Last year's Coronation Stakes winner was having her first outing of the season in the Group Three Chartwell Fillies' Stakes and it looked a perfect spot for her as she was able to run without a Group One penalty.

However, she was comfortably put in her place by Chris Wall's Mix And Mingle, who ploughed a lone furrow up the rail under Ryan Moore.
She is now due to step back up to a mile at Royal Ascot, where she holds engagements in the Queen Anne Stakes against the boys and the Group Two Duke of Cambridge Stakes.
Rouget said: "It was a race to forget. Things did not go her way, but she is fine after the race.
"I am very confident you will see her in much better shape at Ascot."
