Arc winner Treve in terrific form says excited Dettori

TREVE is proving terrific even before her return to action in the Group 1 Prix Ganay on April 27 after a glowing report from Frankie Dettori on last year's champion of Europe.

The unbeaten winner of the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe is Dettori's ride in his role as retained jockey to her Qatari owner Sheikh Joaan Al Thani, and he was bubbling about a recent workout on the filly who shared with Black Caviar the accolade of the world's best in 2013.

"I rode her a few weeks ago and forgot just how good she is," said Dettori of the Motivator filly trained in France by Criquette Head-Maarek.

"It is amazing what the winter does to a filly, she looks magnificent. If everything is fine she will be back on April 27 and after the Ganay if everything goes right she will go for the Prince of Wales's [at Royal Ascot] and then have a break and be aimed the Arc again."

It was Treve's win in the Arc last season that left Dettori crying tears of pain rather than joy after injury left him sidelined as Thierry Jarnet rode her to a brilliant victory from a powerful field.

"I was on the verge of crying," Dettori added on At The Races. "I'd just come out of hospital and was meant to be on her. It wasn't to be but that is part of your job. You can't dwell on the past.

"Luckily for me, she is still in training and I'm flying to Chantilly tonight to ride her in the morning. I'm like a child before Christmas. She is the best horse in the world.
