Enable capped a memorable season with a scintillating display in the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe at Chantilly.

John Gosden's brilliant filly lined up as the hot favourite for Europe's premier middle-distance contest after four consecutive victories at the top-level in the Epsom Oaks, the Irish Oaks, the King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes and the Yorkshire Oaks.

The three-year-old made a fast start from stall two and Frankie Dettori always had her well positioned in behind Aidan O'Brien's pair of Idaho and Order Of St George.

The popular Italian gave Enable her head racing inside the final two furlongs and she quickly stamped her class, quickening clear in stunning fashion to seal a dominant success.

Dettori, winning the Arc for an unprecedented fifth time, said: "I was very confident all week...she is a tremendous filly."
