O'Brien has Tapestry as his sole representative in the Coronation Cup

Aidan O'Brien, who already has a record-breaking seven winners to his name in the Investec Coronation Cup, has Tapestry as his sole remaining representative in the Group One middle-distance showpiece for older horses at Epsom on June 6.

The four-year-old filly, who lowered the colours of last year's Taghrooda in the Yorkshire Oaks last season, has not run since finishing unplaced in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.

David Wachman's Legatissimo, who heads the ante-post market at 7-2 with Coral, was among 25 fillies left in the Classic at the latest acceptance stage.

Others prominent in the betting include the Aidan O'Brien-trained trio of Diamondsandrubies, Found, and Together Forever.

Seven of the 11 Irish-trained possibles hail from O'Brien's Ballydoyle yard while Jessica Harrington is double-handed with Bocca Baciata and Jack Naylor.

Ger Lyons will be double-handed in Saturday's Tattersalls Irish 2,000 Guineas with Endless Drama and Convergence primed for the Curragh Classic.

Endless Drama made a big impression when making a successful juvenile debut at Naas in October and has filled the runner-up spot in the Guineas Trial at Leopardstown and the Tetrarch Stakes at the Curragh in two starts this season.
