Love set to swerve Irish Oaks
Aidan O'Brien says Love will swerve this weekend's Juddmonte Irish Oaks as they set their sights on next month's Darley Yorkshire Oaks.
All roads lead to October's Prix de l'Arc Triomphe for O'Brien's three-year-old after winning the Investec Oaks at Epsom on July 4.
The impressive filly was expected to take up an entry for the Juddmonte Irish Oaks at the Curragh on Saturday, but O'Brien insists she won't be making an appearance.
O'Brien has hinted they could go to York on August 20 for the Darley Yorkshire Oaks before focusing on their long-term target in France.
"Love doesn't run this weekend," O'Brien said.
"She is perfect. What we are thinking at the moment is that she is probably going to go straight to York for the Yorkshire Oaks, and then on to the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe after that."
