AIDAN O'BRIEN has supplemented Tapestry for the Moyglare Stud Stakes at the Curragh on Sunday.

The daughter of Galileo struck over the course and distance in the Group Two Debutante Stakes earlier this month to take her 100pc record to two.

She was added to the field for the Group One at a cost of €22,500.

O'Brien left in four others – Bluebell, Minorette, Perhaps and Wonderfully – as 13 fillies were confirmed.

Lambourn trainer Charlie Hills is set to run Kiyoshi, who was last seen winning the Albany Stakes in convincing fashion at Royal Ascot.

Hills said: "She's going to run there. We are very happy with her and looking forward to running her over seven furlongs.

"It's a galloping track and should suit her."

There is a second British possible in the shape of the Clive Brittain-trained Rizeena.

She won the Queen Mary Stakes at the Royal meeting and was third to No Nay Never in the Prix Morny on her latest start.

Jim Bolger still has three entries – Craic Agus Spraoi, Peony Fairy and Prudent Approach.

Dermot Weld is double-handed with Afternoon Sunlight and Carla Bianca, while John Murphy's Touch Of Snow completes the list.

Meanwhile, Harasiya is to bid for a second Pattern-race success in the Lanwades Stud Blandford Stakes at the Curragh on September 14.

Winner of the Group Three Silver Flash Stakes at Leopardstown as a two-year-old, the John Oxx-trained filly went on to finish third in the Moyglare Stud Stakes 12 months ago.

She has tackled Group One company in the Irish 1,000 Guineas and the Pretty Polly Stakes in both her starts this season and was taken out of the Dance Design Stakes at the Curragh on Sunday to wait for the Blandford.
