KEY FACTORS

  • One of the highlights of the Ebor Festival takes place on Thursday as super mare Enable graces the turf as she looks to make it 13 wins from 14 races but faces a tricky test in a small field.
  • John Gosden won this race back in 2017 with Enable and he will be hoping for another success here but AP O’Brien will make it difficult with two runners of his own in what could make this a very tactical affair.
  • O’Brien’s two entrants were both sired by Galileo so are bred to suit this trip and that could work in the Irishman’s favour as he looks to figure out a way to stop Enable after she has got the better of Magical on three occasions so far.

ANALYSIS

It is impossible to oppose Enable in this one as the mare gears up what will likely be a historic attempt at claiming a hat-trick of Arc victories following this race. Although she is a very short price, her class cannot be ignored and nothing else in the small field makes any sort of appeal.

TIP: ENABLE (WIN)
