Five Horses To Follow This Weekend - 03/07/19

1. Enable

One place to start - if you did not know already, dual Arc heroine Enable will make her seasonal comeback in the Coral Eclipse at Sandown on Saturday.

John Gosden's top-notch filly will be making her first appearance as a five-year-old, eight months on from when she was last seen beating Magical in the Breeders Cup Turf at Churchill Downs.

The two are set to lock horns once again in Esher, as the daughter of Nathaniel plots her route back to Longchamp to seek a record third consecutive Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.

Great to see the Khalid Abdullah star back now as a mare, and she will take some stopping despite probably being the least fit of all her rivals.

2. Klassique

Klassique has been ultra-consistent for trainer William Haggas of late, and aside from her debut fifth at Newbury last June, she is yet to finish outside the top two in seven other starts.

She returned to the fold this season at Goodwood in May, where she was just denied by John Gosden's Enhibaar in Listed company.

The four-year-old daughter of Galileo then bounced back to take the Group Three Pinnacle Stakes here a month ago over a very well fancied Willie Mullins mare in True Self.

Klassique will re-oppose her Goodwood successor in the Lancashire Oaks this weekend, but does have the plus of winning at the Liverpool venue this season.

Fascinating clash, and she should go close.

3. First Eleven

All the attention on the Khalid Abdullah silks will be on Enable at Sandown at around 3:35, but twenty minutes before that, First Eleven will look to consolidate his Ebor claims with an outing at Haydock.

Entered in the Old Newton Cup Handicap, the son of Frankel has risen smartly up the handicap ladder, and has Group form in his profile.

He looked impressive when carrying a big weight at York in a Class Two last time out over this distance, and will surely only come on better for the run.

Also won on his second appearance of last season, and conditions look set to suit him in Merseyside.

4. Garrus

T - Charles Hills

J - Ryan Moore

Garrus may well have been Jeremy Noseda's last winner before retirement when prevailing at York last time out, and makes his first start for new boss Charlie Hills in the Coral Charge at Sandown this weekend.

Two starts this season have merited two victories, and the rise to a Group Three from Listed company last time out certainly looks appropriate.

Just prevailing by a short-head on the Knavesmire in the Westow Stakes, the second Shades Of Blue has since come out and won, whilst Soldier's Call ran a cracker behind Blue Point in the King's Stand at Royal Ascot.

Interesting recruit for the yard, and even more mind-switching if Ryan Moore takes the ride over Aidan O'Brien's Sergei Prokofiev, who is also entered.

5. Ouzo

Wherever Ouzo lines up this weekend, he will be of strong interest for trainer Richard Hannon at Sandown Park.

Entered up in class in both the Class Two Coral Challenge Handicap over a mile and the Class Three coral.co.uk Handicap over seven furlongs, he continues his surge up the ladder having landed the hat-trick last time out at Newmarket.

He won in Esher the start before in very simple but commanding fashion, and appears to be versatile on either good or soft ground.

The mile contest could be the preference.
