Enable in Good Form in Advance of Fourth Arc Appearance

Two-time G1 Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe heroine Enable (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}) turned in another solid gallop in advance of appearing in her fourth consecutive Arc. Second last year, the John Gosden trainee resurfaced with a runner-up performance in the G1 Coral-Eclipse at Sandown in July, but was back in the winner's circle on July 25 when taking her third G1 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth S. The Juddmonte colourbearer's historic third Arc bid comes on the heels of a dominating win in the G3 September S. over...

Stroll For Enable In the September

John Gosden could hardly have scripted a better 2020 for Clarehaven's standard-bearer Enable (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}) and Saturday's G3 Unibet September S. at Kempton turned out the predicted stroll all expected as she works towards her historic Arc attempt. Providing the only anxious moment for 1-14 backers when awkward from the stalls, the Juddmonte juggernaut was soon in command as Frankie showed his intent to keep it simple. Tracked throughout by Kirstenbosch (GB) (Mount Nelson {GB}), she went through the contest like a piece of strong exercise and there were...

Enable on Course for Kempton

Dual G1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe heroine Enable (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}) is pleasing connections ahead of a start in the G3 September S. over the Kempton synthetic on Sept. 5. The 6-year-old Juddmonte silksbearer took the 2018 September S. in advance of her second Arc crown. Second in that ParisLongchamp showpiece in 2019, the John Gosden trainee was also runner-up in the G1 Coral-Eclipse S. to Godolphin's Ghaiyyath (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) this July, but was back in top form in the G1 King George Vi & Queen Elizabeth S....

Enable to Bypass York, Run in September S.

Dual G1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe heroine Enable (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}) will bypass an intended start at York and instead run in the Sept. 5 G3 September S., according to Juddmonte Racing Manager Teddy Grimthorpe. The Juddmonte colourbearer had originally been under consideration for the G1 Juddmonte International S. or the G1 Yorkshire Oaks in late August, but the Kempton 2400-metre event is now her target. The champion is eyeing a second title in the September, held over the all-weather, as she won it in 2018. "Prince Khalid has...

King George Demolition By Enable

Ascot's promised match race failed to materialise on Saturday as Khalid Abdullah's epoch-defining Enable (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}) brushed aside the Ballydoyle contingent with an ease rarely seen on this exalted stage. Forcing her way into history as the first to win three renewals of the G1 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Qipco S., the Juddmonte regina was at her exuberant best with Frankie Dettori at pains to contain her from the outset. As she sauntered behind Sovereign (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) with her well-matched rider content to allow last year's...

Enable Exits Eclipse Defeat Well

John Gosden is looking forward to the rest of the campaign with Enable (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}) despite the mare suffering the third defeat of her career on her seasonal bow in Sunday's Coral-Eclipse at Sandown. A third G1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe win remains her ultimate target in the autumn and she satisfied her trainer when second to Charlie Appleby's Ghaiyyath (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) over a trip short of her optimum. However, Gosden believes Enable could face a tricky task at ParisLongchamp in October should G1 QIPCO 1000 Guineas...

Eclipse Remains Enable's Target

The G1 Coral-Eclipse at Sandown remains the most likely comeback target for superstar mare Enable (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}). The two-time G1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe heroine was just denied in her bid for an historic third consecutive victory in the ParisLongchamp showpiece at the end of last season. Less than a fortnight later, Enable's owner-breeder Khalid Abdullah delighted racing fans by confirming his charge would stay in training as a 6-year-old--with a return to Paris in the autumn top of the agenda. Connections decided against an appearance at Royal...

Enable Pointing to Eclipse at Sandown

Two-time G1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe heroine Enable (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}) will point for the July 5 G1 Coral-Eclipse S. at Sandown for her seasonal bow, Racing Post reported on Monday. Royal Ascot's June 17 G1 Prince of Wales's S. has been ruled out for the John Gosden trainee. The bay was second to Waldgeist (GB) (Galileo {Ire}) in the 2019 Arc in her final 2019 outing. "Enable is in good form and has enjoyed a couple of spins up the Al Bahathri in the past few weeks," Gosden...
