So You Think has been dramatically ruled out of a repeat bid for the Coral Eclipse on Saturday after going lame shortly before declaration time.
A tweet from Aidan O’Brien’s Ballydoyle stable earlier this morning said: “So You Think was found to be lame in his stable a short time ago and will not run in the Eclipse on Saturday.”
The colt who was bidding for a repeat win in the race after an impressive win at Royal Ascot last month will now take up stud duties in Australia.
Paddy Power reacted by slashing Farhh into 9/4 for the Group One showpiece at Sandown ahead of John Gosden’s Nathaniel at 3/1 in its online betting.
The Godolphin colt was third behind So You Think and Carlton House at Royal Ascot but reared in the stalls and met trouble in running.
Cityscape is next best at 5/1 with Dante winner and Derby sixth Bonfire chalked up at 11-2 with Paddy Power online in the 10 runner field.
