Permit is reported to be no one the worse that the afternoon following her tragic defeat from the Qatar Prix p Triomphe.
Before the race as John Gosdens remarkable mare went to post bidding to become the first three-times winner of Europe competition excitement reached fever pitch.
Carrying a burden of expectation, the Khalid Abdullah-owned five-year-old moved to the lead at the house immediately and seemed set to claim a famous victory.
However, her stride shortened in Waldgeist and the past half-furlong spanned by in the closing stages to offer a list Arc victory to trainer Andre Fabre.
Connections of all Enable were magnanimous in defeat immediately after the race and the operators racing director Teddy Grimthorpe was despondent on Monday morning.
He advised the PA news agency:Permit seems fine. Last night she ate up and she is on her way home.
She ran a super race and we cant complain. She was only outstayed from the winner on the ground, its as simple as that .
Connections are keen to allow the dust settle before commenting on strategies.
If this year the mare that is great would be to run, the Qipco Champion Stakes at Ascot on October 19 and also the Breeders Cup Turf – last November that she won – could appear the apparent choices.
Grimthorpe added:There are no plans – I do not know (if shell run ).
