O'Brien looks to Oaks for Tapestry

Aidan O'Brien is keen to give Tapestry another chance of Classic glory in the Investec Oaks at Epsom.

The Galileo filly was sent off favourite for her seasonal reappearance on the Rowley Mile, but trailed home a well-beaten last of 17 runners.

The Ballydoyle handler immediately blamed himself for doing too much his filly before Newmarket.

O'Brien said: "As I've said she was just light enough for the Guineas. She's put on some weight and will possibly make it back for the Oaks.

"She was dallying along great (before Newmarket) but I worked her with Bracelet and I probably shouldn't have. After that she dropped a little too much weight."

Bracelet fared only slightly better in the Guineas, but she too is likely to benefit from a step up in trip at Epsom.

"Ryan (Moore) said she wants a mile and a quarter and a mile and a half. We thought she had a bit more pace than she has," said O'Brien.

"She'll step up in trip and be trained for the Oaks."
