ENABLE will make her seasonal comeback as one of a star-studded potential field of eight in the Coral Eclipse at Sandown on Sunday, with Ghaiyyath and Lord North among the possible challengers.
Khalid Abdullah’s outstanding mare started last season with a convincing victory in this race and is a general 11-10 chance to repeat that success in what looks a deeper contest. Regular rider Frankie Dettori will take the ride.
Ghaiyyath, the mount of William Buick, will head to Sandown following his destructive performance in the Coronation Cup at the start of the month. He is rated a general 5-2 chance for the Godolphin operation.
Enable’s stablemate Lord North was last seen producing a three-and-three-quarter-length rout in the Prince Of Wales’s Stakes.
Aidan O’Brien has two entries in the Group 1 event with Japan and globetrotter Magic Wand, while Japanese raider Deirdre also features, alongside Regal Reality and Bangkok. Maybe Enable’s defeat at Longchamp has given others hope. – Racing Post.
