Love showed her rivals a clean pair of heels when making all to run out a decisive winner of the Silver Flash Stakes at Leopardstown this evening.

Seamie Heffernan's mount, sent off an 8/1 shot in the Group 3 contest, bounced out smartly from the stalls and took them along in the seven-furlong event.

She was asked to quicken a furlong-and-a-half from home and soon had matters in hand.

The daughter of Galileo kept on strongly in the closing stages to post a three-and-a-quarter length success over Unforgetable

The winner's stable-mates So Wonderful and Precious Moments (2/1f) filled the third and fourth spots.

“She's a lovely filly and progressing, obviously,” said O'Brien.

“They are really coming forward with every run. They are just progressing and she won nicely here the last day.

“Ryan was happy with his filly (Precious Moments), he didn't have a good draw, but he was happy with her. She has plenty of speed.

“Wayne was happy with his filly (So Wonderful) too and said she's still progressing. She's still a maiden as well.

“They'll probably all go to the Debutante and we'll what happens there.”
