So You Think aimed to end Irish sojourn on a high

Updated: July 4, 2012

So You Think will aim to end his Irish sojourn on a high note with a second victory in the Coral Eclipse Stakes at Sandown on Saturday.

The Aidan O’Brien trained six year old is expected to have his racing swansong in the Ecilpse, before returning to Australia to take up stallion duties in Coolmore’s stud in New South Wales.

The son of High Chaparral has won five Group Ones since moving to Ballydoyle before the start of last season to add to the five prizes he won at the highest level in the Southern Hemisphere.

He could renew rivalry with Farrh on Saturday. The Godolphin horse was considered an unlucky third behind So You Think in the Prince of Wales Stakes at Royal Ascot last month.

Henry Cecil withdrew Frankel from the race but he is still represented by the consistent Twice Over, who won the race back in 2010. John Gosden has hit a rich vein of form recently and last year’s King George winner Nathaniel could make his seasonal reappearance on Saturday.

So You Think could be joined by stablemates Daddy Long Legs, Robin Hood and Windsor Palace, while Andrew Balding’s Bonfire may get the chance to atone for his disappointing run behind Camelot in the Epsom Derby on Saturday.
