Enable Exits King George Well


Enable | Racing Post

Fresh off the back of her 5 1/2-length victory in the G1 King George VI & Queen Elizabeth S. on Saturday, Enable (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}) emerged from the Ascot showpiece in good condition, trainer John Gosden confirmed.

The next start for the formidable Juddmonte colourbearer is undecided, but she is targeting a pair of races at York–either the Aug. 19 G1 Juddmonte International S. or the Aug. 20 G1 Yorkshire Oaks. The former features a rematch with Ghaiyyath (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}), while the outstanding dual Classic heroine Love (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) is slated to take part in the latter. The Coolmore representative demolished the G1 Investec Oaks field by nine lengths on July 4 and will receive a break in the weights. A two-time winner of the G1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, Enable's 12-race winning streak was snapped with a runner-up performance in very soft ground in last year's Arc, and she found Ghaiyyath 2 1/4 lengths too good on the day in the G1 Coral-Eclipse S. at Sandown last time.

“Enable is in good form,” trainer John Gosden told the Ascot Racecourse notes team on Sunday morning of his triple King George winner. “She ate up and had a nice lead-out, jogged up well, had a pick of grass. I was clear that she wasn't wound up for the Eclipse, and I didn't see the point of jumping out the gate and trying to go head to head with Ghaiyyath (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) first time out–I didn't think that would be any help to her, so she ran great and she has come on for the race.”
