Frankie Dettori to jump back on Enable after quarantine as her Arc prep steps up a gear
FRANKIE Dettori will emerge from quarantine next week to partner Enable at home in Newmarket.
John Gosden's superstar will step up her prep ahead of the much-anticipated clash with Love in the Arc in two weeks time.
During the Henry Cecil Open Weekend, held virtually this year, Gosden gave an update on his excellent string.
And his star Enable is well on course for a historic attempt at a third Arc.
Her trainer said: "Enable is very happy and well. She has been fine since the race at Kempton in the September Stakes. She enjoyed that outing.
"The Arc) a massive task, a big mountain to climb again. If it had gone quite right last year, she obviously wouldn't be trying to do it this year.
"It looks a fantastic race, Aidan O'Brien is fielding a wonderful filly in Love, who naturally being a three-year-old gets all the weight, which Enable benefited from when she won as a three-year-old, and there are some great older horses.
"It is very exciting – she is in great form to attempt the impossible. Frankie will hopefully be here next week to ride her in some work and help bring her up to the race."

Enable is set to be joined in the Arc by illustrious stablemate Stradivarius.
The star stayer was narrowly beaten by Anthony Van Dyck in his recent Arc prep run in the Prix Foy.
Gosden added: "In the Prix Foy, Mickael Barzalona was riding Anthony Van Dyck and he went nice gentle fractions. In the French trials they do not like to overdo them, they come into the straight and then kick.
"I thought for a two-and-a-half-mile Ascot Gold Cup winner he showed great acceleration down the straight. The other horses behind never got to them. I thought both horses ran lovely races and he came up a neck short. I could not have been happier with him."
