Enable will face six rivals as she completes her Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe preparations at Kempton.

The six-year-old has an unprecedented third success in next month’s Longchamp feature in her sights, and she tackles the Unibet September Stakes on Saturday, just as she did before going on to claim her second Arc in 2018.

Enable is also likely to be having her final British outing as she lines up for John Gosden and Frankie Dettori in the 12-furlong Group Three.

Dettori returned from a spell in quarantine after riding in France with a winner at Chelmsford on Thursday evening and is keenly anticipating the weekend.

He told Racing TV: "I rode her on Wednesday, in the morning I had Stradivarius first lot and Enable second lot. One is rated 125 (Stradivarius) and one is rated 128 (Enable), so it wasn't a bad morning! They are both in good fettle.

"She just did a routine solo gallop and she feels up for it. If everything goes well we’ve got four weeks to the Arc and we’ll have a crack at it.

"She seems focused and just to get her in a horse box and to go racing – I know there’s no crowd, but it’s something different and gets her blood pumping and it gets her closer to being as good as we can for the Arc.

"John is a master at that and that was always the plan."

Stablemate Logician, who is also owned by Khalid Abdullah, was among nine initial entries – but as expected, he does not feature in the final field. Alignak was the other absentee.

Charlie Fellowes’ Prince Of Arran finished third in this race last year before making the trip to Australia, where he won the Geelong Cup and went on to another placed finish in the Melbourne Cup – coming home third before being promoted to second following a stewards’ inquiry in the Group One.

Another trip to Flemington is his ultimate target.

Almania and Tinandali, trained by David Simcock and David O’Meara respectively and owned by Australian Bloodstock, are also both entered in the Melbourne Cup and they take their chances this weekend.

The James Fanshawe-trained Kirstenbosch and Richard Hughes’ Punting complete the line-up.
