So You Think

So You Think had little trouble in winning back-to-back renewals of the Tattersalls Gold Cup at the Curragh.

The ex-Australian superstar was having his first start since returning a beaten favourite in the Dubai World Cup but, on this occasion, the six year old gave his supporters no cause for anxiety.

Soon sent in pursuit of his pacemaking stablemate Robin Hood by Joseph O’Brien, the six year old took up the running with over two furlongs to run.

The son of High Chaparral was still being shadowed by the prolific Group winner Famous Name but he had far too much firepower for his rival with Pat Smullen accepting the situation before the pair passed the furlong pole.

Aidan O’Brien’s 2-11 favourite only needed to be kept up to his work to score by six lengths and claim a ninth Group One success.

O’Brien said: “He has an unbelievable presence. “We’re probably only really getting to know him and doing the right thing with him.

“He had a good break since Dubai and Joseph was very happy with him.

“He’s an amazing horse – he’s very unusual in that his mane and his tail grow twice as quick as any other horse which means he has a wild look about him.

“We’ll look at Royal Ascot (Queen Anne Stakes or the Prince of Wales’s Stakes).

“Then he’ll go for the Eclipse (Sandown) as that’s the only race that fits into his programme before he goes into quarantine (for stud duties in Australia).

“This is the last time you’ll see him in this country. Training him has been an unbelievable experience.”
