"High-class filly" Love conquered all to claim victory on her seasonal reappearance in a hard-fought encounter at the Prince of Wales' Stakes on Wednesday at Royal Ascot.

Love, who easily won last year's 1000 Guineas, Epsom Oaks and Yorkshire Oaks, had to dig deep, holding off Audarya (10/1), also running for the first time this year having last been seen winning at the Breeders' Cup, for a win on her long-awaited return, giving Aiden O’Brian and Ryan Moore their first wins of the week in the process. Armory (5/2), stablemate of Love, came in at third, whilst My Oberon (17/2) finished fourth. 

With four wins in a row and another Grade 1 in the bag, Love is shaping up to be a truly special horse. 

Speaking after the win, trainer O’Brian said, "Delighted, first run of the year. Ryan gave her a beautiful ride. She is very genuine and very brave. Ryan was trying to do enough but not too much. We knew looking at Ryan's body language he hadn't went for everything, he was just trying to do enough and not do too much.”

“Do the right thing for Love. She will come on for the run."

Moore added, "[She’s a] high-class filly. First run since last August and she had to beat a Breeders Cup winner. Great to get her back today. She is very honest, lot of ability. Hopefully she will come on for that."
