Verdict

ENABLE was impressive when landing this contest in 2017 and her comeback success in the Eclipse last time out suggests she retains all of her ability. Having already beaten most of her main rivals in this race at some stage in her career, she's going to be hard to deny in her bid for a ninth success at the highest level. Crystal Ocean has been better than ever this year and isn't one to rule out having gone so close in this last year. Derby winner Anthony Van Dyck is the unexposed one who may benefit from the fitting of first-time cheekpieces.
