So You Think set to miss Longchamp assignment
France: So You Think has not been declared by Aidan O'Brien for Sunday's Prix Ganay at Longchamp.
The eight-time Group 1 winner was fourth on his seasonal reappearance in the Dubai World Cup last month and will be retired in time to take up studduties with Coolmore in Australia in September.
The prospect of testing conditions on Sunday hasn't deterred the connections of Cirrus Des Aigles, who beat So You Think in last season's Qipco Champions Stakes at Royal Ascot.
Cornine Barande-Barbe's stable star comes into the Ganay off the back of a second Group 1 success in the Dubai Sheema Classic.
Last season's Prix du Jockey Club hero Reliable Man will make his seasonal debut for Alain de Royer-Dupre alongside stablemate Giofra, while Michael Bell will saddle the globetrotting Wigmore Hall.
O'Brien has also elected not to send either Kissed or Twirl to contest the Group 3 Prix Vanteaux on the same card.
