Sale rumour prompts Coeurs Cup quote
Voleuse De Coeurs has been given a Melbourne Cup quote following rumours she has been sold to continue her career in Australia.
Reports emerged from Australia on Wednesday morning that owner Lady O'Reilly had accepted an offer for the four-year-old, who was such an impressive winner of the Classic last time out.
Paddy Power go 16-1 about Dermot Weld's filly.
Weld was undecided about a trip to Melbourne for the filly this year and had mooted a campaign built around the famous race next season.
Paddy Power's spokesman Paul Binfield said: "The news that Voleuse De Coeurs could join an Australian trainer and run in the Melbourne Cup came as a complete shock to us this morning.
"Obviously if she runs she will be a major player and the 16-1 could prove to be quite a big price."
