Watch: Shattered Love lands massive gamble to give Gordon Elliott his fourth win of the week

The seven-year-old mare was driven to lead between the last two fences by Jack Kennedy, after favourite Terrefort had set sail for home.

Shattered Love (4-1) jumped the last well and powered up the hill to give teenager Kennedy his third winner at the meeting, with Benatar third.
Kennedy said: "She's a super mare and she's only been improving. She does everything so easily.
"She jumped and travelled great. She's done it very well in the end."
Elliott said: "She's a good, big, tough mare - she looks like she's a gelding
"It's brilliant. I can't believe it. We knew she'd stay. She's won two Grade Ones now, so it's brilliant."
Gigginstown House Stud chief Michael O'Leary said: "She's a huge, great mare. The mares' allowance, which I don't always agree with, was very helpful there.
"She's always been a very good jumper - she beat Presenting Percy (RSA winner) at Punchestown earlier in the season. She's just a very good mare. She's built like a gelding, she's really come into her own over fences.
"It's another great training performance from Gordon."
