Frankel v So You Think a possibility

Updated: September 5, 2011

A dream match-up between Frankel and So You Think could be on the cards as Aidan O’Brien hinted that the ex Aussie star could drop back to a mile for his next start in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot.

Having landed the Irish Champion Stakes last Saturday, many thought that So You Think would have his next start in the Prix de L’Arc Triomphe, however O’Brien admitted that all options are been kept open.

“So You Think seemed fine this morning but we haven’t really discussed where he might run next and that won’t be happening for at least a few days.

“I’m sure the owners will think seriously about the Arc now Pour Moi is out of the equation. His retirement has opened that door and the Arc is now a possibility.

“It’s also not beyond the bounds of possibility that he could drop down to a mile in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes.”

There has also been an update on Await The Dawn who was last seen finishing third when odds on favourite in the Juddmonte International at York last month.

“Await The Dawn was very sick after the York race” said O’Brien. “We won’t make any plans until he resumes full work.”
