SO YOU THINK has won four Group 1's since joining the Ballydoyle team though he's been beaten on the two occasions he's raced here including when long odds-on a year ago. He's also disappointed on other occasions including in the Dubai World Cup in March where Planteur was in front of him and Marco Botti's charge looks good each-way value though if So You Think is at his best he should win. Reliable Man was behind Planteur at Longchamp last time and would be better on much softer ground. Carlton House reappeared to land the Group 3 Brigadier Gerard Stakes at Sandown in good style and, still very lightly-raced, it's possible he could make this sort of trip his own this campaign and rates a big threat. Winning a Thirsk handicap wouldn't be an automatic step-up to this sort of class but Farhh has been very impressive in all three starts and wouldn't be running here unless connections thought he could do himself justice.
