Enable is an intended runner in the King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot on Saturday. John Gosden's filly has looked exceptional this season and will now take on her elders for the first time in one of the biggest races of the summer. Teddy Grimthorpe, racing manager for Enable's owner Prince Khalid Abdullah, told Press Association Sport: "John is happy with her and she's going to head to Ascot." Enable is the ante-post favourite for the King George after winning the Oaks at Epsom and the Irish Oaks at the Curragh by an aggregate distance of 10 and a half lengths.
My advice, get on as the price is shrinking fast. With the weight-for-age scale and filly allowance on OR’s she is as near as a stone well-in!
Gerald Mosse has come in for the ride on Argentinian star Sixties Song in the King George. A four-year-old son of Sixties Icon, he is the leading performer in his homeland but faces an entirely different test this weekend."It looks a very competitive race but he is the top horse in Argentina," Mosse said. "I'm excited to ride in the King George, it's a great race to be a part of." Mosse's agent Shippy Ellis added: "We were looking at riding at Newmaket but Gerald looked at the videos (of Sixties Song) and was keen to ride him. He does have some form on soft ground but he'd prefer it quicker, I think. It's a proper King George, make no mistake, and the connections deserve credit for coming and having a go. He's a big price but I think he'll outrun it."
