The trainer told Racing UK’s Luck On Sunday programme: “The plan is to get Enable back hopefully for York. She’s training fine at the moment and we’ll be looking at the Juddmonte International or the Yorkshire Oaks – one of the two.
“She’s cantering and I’m very happy with her. I’ll start building her up into half-speeds soon.
“The ability is still there and mentally she just loves training. We just don’t want a recurrence of what put us on the back-burner in the spring.”
With Roaring Lion proving that he’s one of the best of the current three-year-old crop when beating off Saxon Warrior last Saturday, all the top races are possibilities for the son of Kitten’s Joy.
Gosden is pleased with the way his star has come out of the contest and hopes he can progress further.
He added: “He’s in good order this morning.
“He’s improving. His last three races have been great and Oisin (Murphy) rode him perfectly.
“It was never the plan to be three wide and virtually back in last early on, but if you drop to the rail at Sandown it’s the easiest place to get boxed in and that wouldn’t have been very funny.”

The trainer also had news of last year’s Champion Stakes winner, Cracksman, who was slightly disappointing when finishing second in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes at Royal Ascot.
He said: “He got distracted by the girls (fillies) walking back from the Cambridge Duke of Cambridge Stakes, so he wasn’t focused. He’s been in great form at home since and we’ll just work our way back again.
“He’s freshened up amazingly since Ascot. He did run a very fast time figure and the winner is a super horse and handled the conditions better than us, but I do have to say our boy didn’t exactly show up for the fight.”
He added: “It would be great if we could get them both (Cracksman and Enable) to the Arc. That is what it’s all about.
“Everything that we do will be to get them to the Arc and I think they are both best on good ground, good to soft ground. It suits them both perfectly.
“Let’s hope we can get them there. That would be beyond exciting.”
