Voleuse de Coeurs: On course for French Leger
Voleuse De Coeurs could attempt to claim further Classic honours this autumn following her resounding victory in the Irish St Leger.
The Dermot Weld-trained filly dotted up by six lengths at the Curragh on Sunday to initiate a likely visit to France in October.
With a tilt at the Melbourne Cup having been ruled out, Voleuse De Coeurs has the Prix Royal-Oak (the French St Leger) on October 27 as an end-of-season target.
James Kelly, racing manager for the four-year-old's owner, Lady O'Reilly, said: "We were over the moon with her.
"She was 100% after the race and the only real option now is to run her in the French St Leger at the end of October.
"The boss (Lady O'Reilly) doesn't want to go for the Melbourne Cup, but she would be delighted to try to win another Classic with her."
