So You Think Beats Snow Fairy

SO YOU THINK added his name to the stellar list of horses who have won the Irish Champion Stakes when he saw off Snow Fairy in a thrilling finish to the Red Mills-backed Group 1 at Leopardstown on Saturday.

The betting suggested 1-4 favourite So You Think would ease to his third Group 1 triumph since joining Aidan O'Brien, but 6-1 shot Snow Fairy, a dual Oaks winner for Ed Dunlop last year, gave his supporters a scare when she rallied under Frankie Dettori.

However, So You Think, who claimed the scalp of last year's Derby and Arc hero Workforce in the Coral-Eclipse, last time, gamely held on for Seamie Heffernan to record a half-length triumph.

Plans for the ex-Australian superstar remain unclear and Paddy Power and William Hill left him unchanged at 5-1 for the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, while connections also mentioned the possibility of a mouthwatering clash with the mighty Frankel in the Qipco-backed Queen Elizabeth II Stakes at Ascot in October.
