Cirrus Des Aigles Will Not Run at Ascot

Cirrus Des Aigles, no bigger than 5-2 for the 150th Anniversary of the Prince Of Wales's Stakes, will not run in the Group 1.

The Champion Stakes winner will instead run in the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud on Sunday.

Trainer Corine Barande-Barbe explained: "The main reason is that the ground will be good at Ascot and good to soft or softer at Saint-Cloud.

"People talked about it being heavy but it never gets really heavy at Ascot, and there’s been much less rain than forecast.

Agree, CH and SYT, but this race won't be handed to them! There's some talent here--Farhh, Wigmore Hall and Reliable Man look tough. Still I think SYT's last race was a perfect prep.
@yukichan, I agree. With CDA out of the POW, I think it definitely makes SYT the horse to beat now. Planteur didn't run particularly well in the race a year ago, and Reliable Man hasn't run particularly well in either of his 2012 starts. My own personal opinion is that the POW will end up being a battle between SYT and Carlton House, who was a very impressive winner of the G3 Brigadier Gerard Stakes at Sandown last month on his seasonal reappearance.
It was never a certainty that CDA was going to run in the G1 Prince of Wales's Stakes at the royal meeting anyway based on what his connections had said recently. They said CDA will run in the G1 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes at 12f in July for sure. But in the meantime, either the G1 Prince of Wales's Stakes at 10f or the G1 Grand Prix De Saint-Cloud at 12f is where CDA would run in the meantime. They've obviously opted for the 12f race at Saint-Cloud. Which, IMO, if they're looking to run in the King George next month is the better option. CDA was a very unlucky loser of the Grand Prix De Saint-Cloud a year ago when Sarafina nailed him by a nose right on the wire.
This helps So You Think quite a bit!
