    (CNN)Enable and jockey Frankie Dettori marked the return of the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe to Longchamps by winning Europe's most prestigious horse race for a second straight year.

    The John Gosden-trained filly is only the eighth horse to achieve the double with Dettori winning it for a sixth time.
      But the odds-on favorite was given an almighty scare by another filly, Sea of Class under James Doyle, who came with a dramatic late run and was a stride away from causing an upset.
      Cloth of Stars finished a creditable third.
      Irish and Yorkshire Oaks winner Sea of Class was last entering the straight but weaved through the field to almost catch Enable, who was well-placed throughout and timed her run to perfection under the wily Dettori.
