The John Gosden-trained filly led from the off, pressuring her three rivals into a pace they could not maintain as she dominated from the stalls to the winning line.
Only Aidan O'Brien’s Magical could keep her company as the post neared, but the Galileo filly eventually fell away, leaving Enable to triumph under Frankie Dettori by two and a quarter lengths, at odds of 1-4.
All roads now lead to the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, for what would be a history-making third success in Paris.
The Goffs UK Premier Yearling Stakes also produced a notable performance – very notable in fact.
This time it was not the result that surprised, but rather the manner in which Mums Tipple flew clear of his rivals, winning by an eventual 11 lengths under Ryan Moore. Richard Hannon’s colt unsurprisingly earned 2000 Guineas quotes and it will be fascinating to see where he goes next.
Picture of the day
Frankie Dettori celebrated a 13th victory aboard Enable by performing his famous flying dismount – likely to be the last time he does so from the superstar mare on British soil.
Quote of the day
“To me he looks like he’ll still improve – not that he’d have to”

Performance of the day
Richard Hannon’s Mums Tipple ran riot in the big sales race, surging from the middle of the field of 21 and eventually winning by a staggering 11 lengths.
Ride of the day
Joe Fanning steered What’s The Story to an unlikely 12-1 victory in the Clipper Logistics Handicap, battling shoulder to shoulder with Frankie Dettori’s mount, Vale Of Kent, to prevail by a head.
Conversation about Friday’s action revolves around a potentially thrilling clash between Battaash and Ten Sovereigns in the Coolmore Nunthorpe Stakes over five furlongs. Charlie Hills’ Battaash is again enjoying a superb run of form, winning the King George Qatar Stakes at Goodwood for a third time and finishing second in the King’s Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot. His two runs in the Nunthorpe, however, have both produced fourth-placed finishes. Aidan O’Brien’s Ten Sovereigns heads to the Knavesmire to tackle the race for the first time, having decisively won the July Cup at Newmarket . Mabs Cross, trained by Michael Dods, could also make her presence felt, after her heartbreakingly narrow defeat of 12 months ago.
