Verdict

Highly progressive filly Enable is bound to prove popular with punters after easy wins in both the Epsom Oaks and Irish Oaks but she will find this tougher against more seasoned rivals such as HIGHLAND REEL. Aidan O'Brien's stable-star arrives in search of his seventh Group 1 win as well as his third Group 1 success on the trot. The five-year-old could well get an easy time of things on the front end and he's the pick of stable jockey Ryan Moore who passes over Idaho. The stablemate was impressive last time out and may not be done improving just yet himself; expect him to be picking off his rivals at the finish.
  1. Highland Reel
  2. Enable
  3. Idaho
