Gosden has had previous success in the race with three-year-old’s, saddling Nathaniel – who is Enable’s sire – and Taghrooda to win the Group 1 contest in recent years

JOHN GOSDEN is hoping Enable can follow in Taghrooda’s footsteps and bag the King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot on Saturday.

Since the turn of the century, just four three-year-olds have won the race, but Gosden has trained two of them in Nathaniel and Taghrooda.


Gosden sent out Taghrooda to defeat the colts in 2014 and she did so in impressive fashion – taking full advantage of the age and sex allowances.

“Enable took Ireland very well. She got a little cut behind, but that has healed,” said the Clarehaven handler.


Enable has come out of the Irish Oaks in great form

“Her races have been very spread out so far. She has done well physically and this is only a two-week gap, but she has taken her races really well.

“She skipped clear of some very nice fillies in Ireland. She flew over, so she didn’t have the strain of a 15-hour journey through Holyhead on the ferry, either.

“She goes on pretty much most ground. Nobody wants to see it go heavy, but some give in the ground wouldn’t bother her at all.”

He added: “Taghrooda didn’t go to Ireland, but that year they (Epsom and Curragh) were closer together.

Taghrooda won the King George for Gosden back in 2014

“We’ve had a funny year this year because Easter was late so we had no time between the trials and the Classics.

“There’s quite a gap to the Yorkshire Oaks and we feel two weeks should be enough.

Gosden and Frankie will be hoping for more big celebrations!

“She’s obviously a progressive filly. She had just the one run last back-end.

“She’s always been a beautiful filly since day one, but she has done nothing but improve through her races.”
