Yorkshire Oaks Guide

1. Enable

Trainer - John Gosden

Jockey - Frankie Dettori

This mare needs no introduction but we are going to anyway, Enable in our eyes is the world best middle distance racehorse to arguably ever grace the sport.

This season she has been in fine form, picking up from where she left off last season staying unbeaten by landing two Group ones in the Coral Eclipse at Sandown and the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot.

In her career she has won 12 out of 13 times and is now has 11 wins in a row and staying at 1 mile 4 furlongs in preparation for the Arc should see her do the business again.

2. Lah Ti Dar

Trainer - John Gosden

Jockey - William Buick

The second string for John Gosden in this race and she might well be a good racehorse but she is not in the same league as Enable which makes it tough to see her go and challenge in this contest.

Lah Ti Dar has not ran to the same standard as her previous runs so far this season, although winning on seasonal debut at York in Group Two, her last two performances have been below par.

She finished a week sixth at Epsom in the Group One Coronation Cup and last time out finished third behind stablemate Coronet over in France.

The form has been franked in many of her runs but it would take a huge career best to see her go close in this one.

3. Magical

Trainer - Aidan O'Brien

Jockey - Ryan Moore

It would not be a stellar Group One without a classy Aidan O'Brien runner and Magical is just that, running to a very high standard this season and is said to be in the form of her life at home.

She has ran five times this season winning her first three all over in Ireland and picking up a nice Group One in the Tattersalls Gold Cup.

Her last two runs have been in England and she has been an unlucky loser in both of them falling short behind Crystal Ocean in the Prince Of Wales's Stakes and again in the Coral Eclipse.

She is the main threat to Enable on Thursday but she will have to be better than ever to go and beat the wonder-mare.

4. South Sea Pearl

Trainer - Aidan O'Brien

Jockey - Donnacha O'Brien

The final runner and big outsider of the field is South Sea Pearl and this horse finishes off the battle between Gosden and O'Brien nicely with the trainers having two each in the field.

This three year old has been ran frequently of late, winning nicely three starts ago in a Listed event at Leopardstown but since then has been below par.

She finished third at Glorious Goodwood in the Lillie Langtry Stakes getting outclassed and then four day ago was woeful when finishing eighth in a Group One over in France.

She is easily opposed in this race and looks like a pace setter for Magical
