Racing: Love set to go Higher.

HIGHER LOVE did her Classic credentials no harm with an impressive victory in the Kentish Express Maiden Fillies' Stakes at Folkestone yesterday.

Relishing the good to soft conditions she was punched out by Frankie Dettori for a length-and-a-half success from Ticki Tori.

Sent off the 4-5 favourite, Michael Bell's (pictured) filly is now on course for one of the Oaks trials, according to his assistant Doug Honeywell.

"That was a nice performance and she hasn't really had a race," he said.

"She's entered in the Oaks and I think she'll probably go for one of the trials next, possibly at Lingfield, though she is also in at Chester."

Dettori completed a short-priced double when Bobby Charles (2-1) scored in equally impressive style, beating Del Mar Sunset three lengths in the Kent Messenger Stakes.
