Enable retains Ascot option
Connections of dual Oaks winner Enable are planning to leave her in the King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Monday's confirmation stage.
The Ascot Group One, which is run on Saturday, had initially been ruled an unlikely option for the John Gosden-trained filly after she completed her Classic double at the Curragh earlier this month.
The Darley Yorkshire Oaks at York on August 24 had been nominated as a possible target, but Teddy Grimthorpe, racing manager to owner Khalid Abdullah, reports she will stand her ground at the five-day stage, although her participation is still far from certain.
He said: "Enable will be left in the King George on Monday, so she will still have the option (of running).
"I'm not saying we are definitely going to think about running, but John is keen to see how she is in the early part of the week. In theory, she could do both (Ascot and York)."
Bookmaker Paddy Power put the filly back into its ante-post market on Sunday afternoon, offering 2-1 about Enable's chances.
