CIRRUS DES AIGLES and So You Think remain in contention for the Prince Of Wales’s Stakes at Royal Ascot on Wednesday after featuring among 14 potential runners following the six-day confirmation stage.
The Champion Stakes winner has yet to be committed to the 1m2f Group 1, however, with trainer Corine Barande-Barbe weighing up the race against an alternative option in France, the Grand Prix’de Saint-Cloud.
The Aidan O’Brien-trained So You Think, who was less than a length behind Cirrus Des Aigles in the Champion Stakes, is expected to tackle Wednesday’s race although he is also entered in the Queen Anne 24 hours earlier when Frankel is among his potential rivals.
The Queen’s Carlton House is a likely Prince Of Wales’s runner, after trainer Sir Michael Stoute nominated the race as his target after last month’s Brigadier Gerard victory.
Last season’s Prix du Jockey Club hero Reliable Man and last year’s Prix Ganay winner Planteur both feature among the remaining entries, but’St Nicholas Abbey and Monterosso were among those to exit the race on Thursday.
