Frankie Dettori says Enable will have to bring her A-game to beat Magical

This is the year that has kept on giving for Frankie Dettori . He rode his 13th Group One winner of the season aboard Coronet in France on Sunday and this week at York ’s four-day Ebor meeting he can look forward to partnering such as Enable , Stradivarius […]

Enable is his Group One banker this week in the Darley Yorkshire Oaks on Thursday and, with so many top races to come at home and abroad over the next couple of months, it will be a surprise if Dettori, at the age of 48, does not achieve a personal best.

In his latest blog for Ladbrokes, this is what he had to say about his rides at York over the first three days of the meeting.

I kick off the week on Cobra Eye in the Group 3 Acomb Stakes (2.25). He is a nice horse who won at Glorious Goodwood. This race is a big jump for him as it is a really competitive race but he has given me a good feel and is an improving type. I think 7f will suit him. I don’t know a great deal about his rivals though.

Next up is the Great Voltigeur Stakes (3.00), where I am on Logician. I rode him once at Newbury last month. He keeps on improving but he has got a bit to find on ratings. I think York will suit him. We know we are taking a leap forward with him but we want to see if we can make him a Leger horse. That’s why he’s there.
