Love Set To Start Campaign Off In Tattersalls Gold Cup


Superstar filly Love is set to start her campaign off at The Curragh in the Tattersalls Gold Cup with the master Ballydoyle trainer Aidan O'Brien excited to get her back on track.

Love was always destined to be a smart horse and at juvenile level proved that when finishing third on her final two year old start in the Group One bet365 Fillies Mile, but this season she has transformed into a world beater.

She made her seasonal debut in the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket and beat a superb field of runners by over four lengths to solidify her credentials for the season.

From there O'Brien decided to step her up in trip for the Epsom Oaks and she revelled in the extra distance, beating a sound field by a devastating nine lengths.

The Yorkshire Oaks was another test for the three year old and again she passed with flying colours, not seeing a rival all the way round and going clear towards the end of the race.

All of these runs were in preparation for the Arc at ParisLongchamp but with the rain falling making the conditions extremely testing, she was withdrawn from the race.

There was rumours that the filly would head to the Breeders Cup meeting, but connections decided to pull up stumps for the season and bring her back this term.

The four year olds longterm aim once again will be to head over to France for the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, but she will start her season off in the Group One Tattersalls Gold Cup.
