Tocco D’Amore holds plenty of fancy entries but her trainer Dermot Weld is in no rush with his exciting filly following an impressive debut at Naas earlier this month.
NO DECISION has been made as to which route Dermot Weld will take with his exciting filly Tocco D’Amore.
The three-year-old beat some well-regarded colts on her debut and holds entries in the Investec Oaks and the Irish equivalent.

A Classic trial is likely to be the next port of call, with the Blue Wind Stakes at the Curragh on May 13 an option for the Raven’s Pass filly.
Weld’s son and assistant Kris said: “We’re not in any great rush with Tocco D’Amore – she has a lot of entries and is in everything.
“A filly as valuable as her, you hope she might live up to some of her pedigree – it’s never guaranteed.
“We haven’t decided what route we’re going with her, but we were thrilled to win with her at Naas. We weren’t surprised she won against the colts – nobody listened to us so that’s not our problem.
“We’ll give her time to come out of the race and hopefully she’ll be competing in good races before too long.”
Another smart filly to race in the colours of Moyglare Stud is Rose De Pierre, a Listed winner on her return to action.
“We’re very happy with Rose De Pierre – she is in both the Athasi and the Amethyst and we’ll see how she is closer to the time,” said Weld.
“Sorelle Delle Rose (maiden winner) took her race extremely well and we’re very happy with her. She’ll probably run in the Athasi Stakes next.”
