Champion racemare Enable may not have been able to get the job done over testing ground at Longchamp on Sunday, but the 5-year-old mare still returned to the saddling enclosure to cheers from her fans after a brave performance. On Monday, Khalid Abudllah's racing manager Lord Teddy Grimthorpe revealed to BBC Radio 4's Today program that no future plans have been confirmed for the two-time winner of the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.

“The first thing is we have to get her back and she's coming back this morning. And of course, the feedback from John Gosden and his team will be vital in anything like this,” Grimpthorpe said. “I think in everybody's mind it's getting towards the end, whether she has one more race or whether she races next year is conjecture and speculation. She's had a wonderful career and there always comes a time when you have to say enough is enough. But I think if she's in good enough shape then Prince Khalid will have that option of continuing or not.”

British Champions Day at Ascot is just two weeks away, but the Breeders' Cup Turf is a full month out. There is also a chance that her Arc rival, Waldgeist, will make the trip to the United States, offering up a chance to turn the tables.
