Dual Arc heroine Enable made a stylish return to action in the Coral-Eclipse at Sandown on Saturday Stretching her winning streak to ten in the process.
Running competitively for the first time in 245 days, the Frank Gosden schooled mare scored by three-quarters of a length under Frankie Dettori.


Enable raced behind leader Hunting Horn and looked comfortable throughout before racing clear with two furlongs left. She quickened clear of the field to win by three quarters of a length from Aidan O'Brien's Magical with Regal Reality a further two lengths adrift in third.
Dettori said: "Today was an eight and a half out of ten, but there's plenty more to come. She's amazing and I love her so much."
"I can't even hear myself talk at the moment, it's amazing. She's special and this touches me.


"When she comes to the races her lights come on – she's the best. What she has achieved is unbelievable. I don't think we'll see another one like her."
Trainer Gosden added: "It's been a long preparation and she's only started coming to herself the last two weeks. Quite frankly, she's come here at 85 per cent, maybe 90.


"I was slightly concerned in the last furlong but Frankie looked after her, it was a lovely ride. He always wanted to be where he was, he was keen to sit there and she's an exceptional athlete.
"To come from an eight-month layoff to win an Eclipse isn't an easy thing. She's done it all herself and the plan is the King George."
