A new week and one in which we are set to see two superstars of the Flat: Enable and Harry Angel.

We will have to wait until the weekend to see them – Enable at Kempton and Harry Angel at Haydock – and we get the chance to see who might be brave enough to take them on when entries are revealed on Monday afternoon.

As for the action on the course on Monday, there are five meetings on the Flat and the all-weather in Britain and Ireland.

Final thought 

She has kept us waiting but this is the week we expect to see the brilliant Enable back in action. However, as a winner of the Oaks, Irish Oaks, Yorkshire Oaks, King George and Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe last year, we may have to wait an extra day to find out her opponents for Saturday as you cannot imagine there will be a huge queue of horses wanting to take her on.
