Tapestry may have run her last race of the season in the Moyglare Stud Stakes at the Curragh on Sunday.

Aidan O'Brien's filly was promoted to second after being interfered with by Kiyoshi in the Group One, won by Rizeena.

Tapestry had previously struck in the Debutante Stakes in good style and was supplemented for the Curragh showpiece.

"She ran very well," said O'Brien.

"As for the rest of this year, she has the option of going for the Fillies' Mile at Newmarket (27 September) or we might just leave her off for the rest of the season."

Stablemate Darwin is due to have his next race in the Group Three Solonaway Stakes at the Curragh on 15 September.

The American recruit has won at Naas and the Curragh so far this season and holds entries in the QEII Stakes and the Champion Stakes at Ascot.

"The plan for Darwin is to run him in the Solonoway Stakes at the Curragh, we'll hope to step him up (in class) after that," said O'Brien.
