After declarations, only four runners stood their ground with Enable taking on an Aidan O’Brien trio of Japan, Sovereign and 2019 Investec Derby winner Anthony Van Dyck.
Enable would become the only horse to win three King George VI and Queen Elizabeth QIPCO Stakes with herself (2017,2019), Swain (1997,1998) and Dahlia (1973,1974) all on two wins currently.
