Fantastic filly – after scintillating success in the Investec Oaks at Epsom, Enable marks herself out as the outstanding filly of her generation with a sparkling follow-up success in the Darley Irish Oaks at the Curragh for trainer John Gosden under jockey Frankie Dettori.
The hot favourite for this Group 1 contest, the result didn’t look in too much doubt as she hit the front turning into the straight and shot clear to power to victory by over five lengths.
The first dual Oaks winner since Snow Fairy in 2010, Enable now has many options open for the rest of the campaign, including the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth II Stakes at Ascot, the Darley Yorkshire Oaks and potentially a step back in trip to tackle the Juddmonte International at York, the race backed by the filly’s owners.
The big likely target? Tackling the colts in Europe’s premier contest, the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe in October…
