So You Think back to its best after Ascot win

NER

NER Aidan O’Brien declared So You Think to be back on top form after the odds-on favourite denied the Queen a jubilee winner on day two of Royal Ascot.

The Australian colt, ridden by O’Brien’s 19-year-old son Joseph, held off the monarch’s Carlton House in the 150th Prince of Wales’s Stakes, with Farrh third.

The trainer, who enjoyed further success with Ishvana in the Jersey Stakes, said: “We expected a big run today, we felt like we had him in a place that he was never in before with us, which is incredible.”

Tom Tate’s Prince of Johanne claimed his second major handicap in the Royal Hunt Cup, while Tom Dascombe’s Ceiling Kitty was a 20-1 winner in the Queen Mary Stakes.
