Tapestry supplemented for Moyglare clash

TAPESTRY, favourite for the 2014 Epsom Oaks, is set to take on Royal Ascot winners Rizeena and Kiyoshi in a mouthwatering Moyglare Stud Stakes after being supplemented for €22,500 on Tuesday.

The two-time Curragh winner, by Galileo, was the only horse added to the potential field for the course's Group 1 on Sunday, where she could face a fellow Aidan O'Brien-trained filly in Wonderfully, twice a winner herself but only seventh behind Kiyoshi in the Albany Stakes.

Rizeena, winner of Queen Mary Stakes, would line up seeking to get back to winning ways, having had her colours lowered by Lucky Kristale at Newmarket before proving no match for No Nay Never at Deauville earlier this month.

Another intriguing entry on a day set to shake up the picture for next year's Classics is Jim Bolger's debutant Prudent Approach, a full sister to Dawn Approach.

The form of Kiyoshi's Albany Stakes win, franked not only by Lucky Kristale but also Sandiva at Deauville, sees Charlie Hills' star filly installed as 13-8 favourite by Paddy Power, with Tapestry at 3-1 and Rizeena a 5-1 chance. Prudent Approach is available to back at 14-1.

Tapestry may not be the only O'Brien classic hope on show on Sunday, with Great White Eagle, a general 14-1 chance for the 2,000 Guineas, set to try to follow up his impressive debut display in the Group 3 Go And Go Round Tower Stakes.

Among the entries for the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Irish Cambridgeshire is the Ed Vaughan-trianed seven-year-old Dance And Dance, in what would be a first visit to Ireland for the globe-trotting gelding, who has raced previously in America, Canada and Dubai.
