Aidan O’Brien trained four-year-old Love made all in landing the Prince of Wales’s Stakes over 1m 1f at Royal Ascot on Wednesday with the Ballydoyle based maestro ‘Over the Moon’.

Ridden by Ryan Moore in the Group One race, 11-10 favourite Love – tipped by fromthehorsesmouth.info – gained a 3/4 length win over Audarya in a battle to the winning line.
Love, added to O’Brien’s CV of the Prince of Wales’s Stakes roll of honour winners, following Duke Of Marmalade, So You Think and Highland Reel.
“Ryan Moore was trying to win and do the right thing for her. All the races are open to her. The King George, the Eclipse, all of them,” said O’Brien.
“She’s a high-class filly. It was her first run since last August and she was able to beat a Breeders’ Cup winner – so I am sure she will improve. I am delighted with her today,” said Moore.
“It was great to get her back today and I am sure she will come on from the run. She is a very honest filly with a lot of ability. Hopefully she will be better as the year goes on,” added Moore.
