    I will enjoy watching this but doubt I will have a bet. I hope Enable wins.

    Charlie’s superstar Ghaiyaath to make history and become Applebys first ever 4yo+ winner at Sandown.

    Two taps on enable, never gave her a hard time which im disappointed about.

    But no excuses, younger enable at “85%”would have won that, so ill be avoiding her from here on! Id expect the younger bunch love etc to be to good now!

    I still do not rate the winner, i cannot take to him

    When no-one took him on early on (thought Magic Wand was going to) I thought to myself “he could win this”. ;-)

    Enable should never have kept in training for another year.

    It was Graham thank you :rose: He’s been knocked for not being able to follow up but he has now proved he’s a different horse this year, much more mature and when the pace hotted up he gave more. :heart:

    Enable will win races Austin she looked a million dollars. Gosden wouldn’t risk taking on Ghaiyyath when he was so full of running and up for a battle she could have burned out for the rest of the season. The Arc is still a possibility and she’s shouldn’t be written off. :rose:

    So they went a snail pace at the start I knew I was in trouble with Enable, buick clearly worried about the head wind, good ride. Frankie could of been abit closer.
    Ghaiyathh proved himself today.

    Nice result for followers of The Monster!

    Where next for him I wonder? Mr Applebey being a bit reluctant in post race interview to commit. Juddmonte at York would be my choice and maybe a interesting clash with Kameko.

    Made up that he won after such a short break as I was pretty sure he needed 5 weeks plus (and hence had only a small bet plus a reverse forecast with Enable as a saver)

    An Enable win from a clean sweep on the daily Yankee with Magny Cours, A’Ali and Dashing Willoughby, gutting. Have a feeling if she doesnt clean up in the King George she may not even make the Arc and bow out gracefully before, but what a servant she’s been regardless.

    I wouldn’t be as buoyant as others about Enable’s efforts there Frankie was obviously very confident early on he’d be able to reel Ghaiyyath in sitting so far off the pace which is unusual for Enable particularly as she’s probably better over further but when the pace lifted to my eye she took a long time to see Deidre off initially and then didn’t really shrug off Japan until late on, never looked a winner. Perhaps they have left plenty to work on but if that is the case I’m disappointed in Gosden using a prestigious Group 1 as a stepping stone for another Group 1, albeit yes she can make history when they chose not to run the progressive Lord North. Take nothing away from the winner who always looked the winner, The Juddmonte looks ideal for him if he comes out of this okay but the Arc will always be problematic in that it will always be a big field and his run style will always be nullified over that trip by a bad draw or other front runners.
