Treve workout delights Dettori

Harry Herbert reported Frankie Dettori to be "seriously excited" after partnering Treve in a workout at Chantilly on Tuesday morning.

Criquette Head-Maarek's unbeaten stable star was a scintillating winner of the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp in October and is due to return to Paris for her eagerly-anticipated four-year-old debut in the Prix Ganay on April 27.

Dettori, who missed the Arc through injury, travelled to Head-Maarek's base to put the finishing touches to Treve this morning and Herbert, racing manager to owner Shiekh Joaan Al Thani, is thrilled with the progress the filly has made.

Herbert said: "She worked this morning and although I wasn't there to see it myself as I'm in Newmarket , everyone I've spoken to was absolutely delighted.

"Frankie was seriously excited and everyone is confident she has progressed very well through the winter.

"She is a much stronger and deeper filly now and seems in very good form at the moment, so let's hope things stay that way."
