Three year old Dual Oaks winning filly, Enable, trained by John Gosden, put a hurting on her competition as she handled the boggy going & pulled away in the straight to win the King George VI & Qu. Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot.  Punched her ticket to The Arc barring the unforeseen.

Worth a look:

Superb performance again from the wonder filly.Not a bad performance by Highland Reel back in 4th as the going did not suit him

True for Highland Reel.  He's tough as they come & extra tough when the going is rated Good or Good To Firm or Firm.  His past performances have all the evidence one would need to see that.

Plus, he is a traveler.  Wins in Hong Kong, Arlington, Santa Anita with creditable performances in Australia & Dubai.  Not to mention the wins in the UK.  Such a nice horse.

It might be hope against hope if Enable wins the Arc but I'd love to see her continue on for a 4 year old season.

Enable made short work of her (overmatched) rivals in the Darley Irish Oaks.   Her stamina is remarkable.  John Gosden, who's had more than a couple excellent fillies, says she's the best he's ever had.

Here's yesterday's race in which Enable leads gate to wire.  Frankie along for the ride but I think she races with such purpose on her own that we could switch Frankie out for a couple of sacks of rocks. :)
