Mousse Glacee, the Jean Lesbordes-trained filly who had been 16- 1 for the Oaks, went down by a head to Always Loyal (Criquette Head) in the Group Three Prix de la Grotte over a mile at Longchamp yesterday. Always Loyal will now go for the Poule d'Essai des Pouliches (French 1,000 Guineas) at Longchamp next month.

Daylami, a Derby entry, beat the fast-finishing Loup Sauvage by two lengths the Group Three Prix de Fontainebleu over a mile. Alain de Royer-Dupre, Daylami's trainer, said: "We will stick to a mile for now. The Poule d'Essai des Poulains [French 2,000 Guineas] is his next target."

Peintre Celebre, trained by Andre Fabre, enchanced his Prix du Jockey- Club (French Derby) claims with a comfortable victory in the Group Two Prix Greffulhe over 1m 2f 110yds.
