Irish Champion Stakes (G1) at Leopardstown on Saturday

Here is how the field stacks up this weekend.

So You Think (141 Timeform) – 3 from 4 in the UK incl. 2 at G1. Likely to join the prestigious honour roll of champions.

Snow Fairy (133) – Irish mare and winner of 2010 Epsom & Irish Oaks, QE II Commemorative Cup & HK Cup.

Famous Name (131) – last start runner-up in German G1, the Dermot Weld stakes winner is 4 from 6 this year. Never won beyond G3.

Roderic O’Connor (126) – last two starts were 6th in Irish Derby (G1) and Prix du Jockey Club (G1), won Irish 2000 Guineas (G1) in May. Same stable as So You Think.

Recital (126) – didn’t seem to handle Epsom last start in Investec Derby (G1), another Aiden O’Brien runner.

Dunboyne Express (121) – has lengths to make up on several of these.

So You Think, then under the guidance of Bart Cummings
