The money may come flooding in for Ghaiyyath to win this Group 1 race if Charlie Appleby has already won with our two preceding tips, and his race-fit some of Dubawi look sure to make a bold bid from the front to run his rivals ragged. But it’s noticeable that his two defeats in his last nine starts have come when stepped up into the best company.
Many of Ghaiyaath’s rivals fall into the same category, with the likes of Bangkok, Deirdre, Magic Wand, and Regal Reality having all struggled at the very top table in the past. Japan is useful on his day, but he also struggled at Royal Ascot over a similar trip to today’s and may not be seen at his best until tackling 12-furlongs this season or when encountering a much longer straight, as he did at York last season.
That means this looks a great chance for Enable to add another Group 1 to her C.V. and she’s our tip for the Coral-Eclipse. The 6-year-old daughter of Nathaniel had won 12 successive races before running out of stamina on ground that was much softer than ideal in last year’s Prix de L’Arc de Triomphe. But her 1 ¾-length defeat by Waldgeist still gives her the form edge over Ghaiyyath who has well-beaten in the Arc and had also been beaten by over four-lengths by Waldgeist earlier in the season. That suggests Enable has what it takes to dine at the top table once more, whilst Ghaiyyath still has something to prove after twice flopping in similar company.
