O'Brien triple-handed in Debutante

Trainer Aidan O'Brien is likely to be triple-handed in the Friarstown Stud Debutante Stakes at the Curragh on Sunday.

The Ballydoyle handler has whittled down his options for the informative Group Two over seven furlongs to Minorette, Perhaps and Tapestry.

Minorette looked impressive on her sole start, when victorious at Naas in July, whereas Perhaps boast the stronger form, having got to within a length of stablemate Wonderfully in a Group Three at Leopardstown.

Tapestry is also unbeaten from one outing, when she beat Chroussa by half a length over six furlongs at the Curragh last month.

O'Brien said: "In the Debutante we intend to have three runners - Minorette, Perhaps and Tapestry.

"They all worked this morning and worked well."
