Dual G1 Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe heroine Enable (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}) will attempt to win her third Arc in the last four years, as she is one of 22 in the French showpiece after the latest forfeit stage announced on Monday. The Juddmonte mare is one of three in the race at this stage for John Gosden, with Bjorn Nielsen’s star stayer Stradivarius (Ire) (Sea The Stars {Ire}) and fellow Juddmonte runner and undefeated 2019 G1 St Leger hero Logician (GB) (Frankel {GB}) is also entered.

Irish maestro Aidan O’Brien has four entered so far for the Coolmore partners in outstanding dual Classic heroin Love (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), 2020 G1 Grand Prix de Paris hero Mogul (GB) (Galileo {Ire}), MG1SW Japan (GB) (Galileo {Ire}), and 2019 G1 Irish Derby winner Sovereign (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}). This term’s G1 Derby victor Serpentine (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) is under consideration, but has yet to be supplemented.

Aidan’s son Joseph fields a quintet, among them MGSW Buckhurst (Ire) (Australia {GB}) and GSW Degraves (Ire) (Camelot {GB}) for Lloyd Williams, this season’s G3 Gallinule S. hero Crossfirehurricane (Kitten’s Joy) for Scott Heider and Healthy Wood Ltd.’s Group 3 winner New York Girl (Ire) (New Approach {Ire}).

Andre Fabre relegated Enable back into second in last year’s edition with Waldgeist (GB) (Galileo {Ire}), and he will send MG1SW Persian King (Ire) (Kingman {GB}) this season, although it is the first time the Godolphin representative will be trying 2400 metres. Jean-Claude Rouget will saddle MG1SW Sottsass (Fr) (Siyouni {Fr}) for Peter Brant’s White Birch Farm and the progressive Shadwell filly Raabihah (Sea The Stars {Ire}), who won the G3 Prix de Psyche in August and was second in the G1 Prix Vermeille on Sept. 13.

G1 German Derby hero and Grand Prix de Paris third In Swoop (Ire) (Adlerflug {Ger}) represents Francis-Henri Graffard and Gestut Schlenderhan, while the third-place finisher that day, Gold Trip (Fr) (Outstrip {GB}), returns for Fabrice Chappet.

Japan is represented by G1 Nassau S. heroine Deirdre (Jpn) (Harbinger {GB}) and G1SW Way to Paris (GB) (Champs Elysees {GB}) steps forward for Andrew Marcialis and Paolo Ferrario. Two last out group winners, Telecaster (GB) (New Approach {Ire}) for Hughie Morrison and Chachnak (Fr) (Kingman {GB}) are also entered.
