Aidan O'Brien's Magical tops the Cartier Horse Of The Year awards again at the latest renewal stage after Enable could secure history in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe on Sunday where she was a narrow second to winner Waldgeist.
John Gosden's superstar Enable has moved closer to Enable in second now just 16 points behind the filly and if she was to have one final run in her career at the Breeders Cup and go on to defend her title she would surely go on to take the the title again.
For the moment she sits on 152 thanks to Waldgeist for Andre Fabre who jumped up to fourth in the rankings after his heroic win in the richest race on turf at the weekend and he is another who could head over to America to try and seal the award.
Magical, Enable, Stradivarius and Waldgeist all take the top four sports in the current standings with still plenty of opportunities for all of these horses to secure the award with the aforementioned Breeders Cup meeting but before that the British Champions Day.
In other divisions things have been set up nicely for the end of the season especially in the two year old colt division with Earthlight leading the way but another son of Shamardal, Pinatubo having a superb season and set to top that off in the Dewhurst Stakes this weekend.
Battaash could not make any dent in Blue Point's lead in the sprinting division after a very underwhelming run in the Group One Prix de l'Abbaye at the weekend and it now looks like his season is up.
Advertise is one of the few horses who could make a late dash for the top spot in the standings and is set to run on British Champions Day in the Champions Sprint on October 19th.
