A real force in Australian racing, he was sent off the 4-11 favourite for the 10-furlong feature in 2011 but after Ryan Moore kicked for home early, Frankie Dettori rode a great race to get Rewilding up in the shadow of the post.
Aidan O'Brien blamed himself for So You Think's eclipse and subsequently campaigned him in a more aggressive manner, yielding wins in the Eclipse and Irish Champion Stakes.
Admittedly, So You Think was disappointing when only fourth in the Arc but he bounced back with a fine second in the Champion Stakes before looking all at sea on the dirt at the Breeders' Cup.
Some pundits believe the son of High Chaparral is perhaps not quite the horse he was thought to be Down Under and his fourth-place finish in the Dubai World Cup on his 2012 reappearance did little to silence the doubters.
However, he subsequently sauntered home in a weak renewal of the Tattersalls Gold Cup which shows he still retains his enthusiasm.
So You Think took plenty of racing in Australia and, as a big, gross horse, he probably takes a lot of exercise to reach his peak.
O'Brien will have been leaving no stone unturned in his preparation this time and while So You Think offers little value, he appeals as a proven class act against the likes of the comparatively inexperienced Carlton House.
Joviality did not seem to fully handle the camber at Epsom on her reappearance but back on a more conventional track, she is the choice in the Windsor Forest Stakes.
John Gosden's filly won the Musidora over 10 furlongs last season but that was on the very edge of her stamina limitations and she has largely concentrated her efforts on shorter trips since.
While Joviality failed to add to her York win last term, her sixth in the Coronation Stakes at this meeting represented a fair effort, as did her fourth in the Falmouth.
Given a long break after disappointing at Deauville last August, Joviality returned with a second-placed effort behind the reopposing Clinical at Epsom.
Joviality is taken to turnaround that threequarter-length verdict though on a track which should suit and a stiff mile that will certainly play to her strengths.
The Jersey Stakes has attracted a bumper field this year but preference is for William Haggas' Sentaril.
This Danehill Dancer filly is one of the most unexposed runners in the field but after backing up a wide-margin victory at Newbury with a similarly clear-cut verdict at Doncaster, she looks on the up.
Trade Storm could represent value in the Royal Hunt Cup after a creditable performance on his debut for trainer David Simcock at York last time. High draws traditionally fare well in this race so Trade Storm's pick in 25 further enhances his claims.
The Queen Mary Stakes has also drawn plenty of runners with Upward Spiral taken to strike while the Sandringham Handicap can yield another Irish-trained winner in David Wachman's Duntle.
* Frankel produced another incredible performance to get Royal Ascot off to a brilliant start in the Queen Anne Stakes.
Sir Henry Cecil's prized asset, left, lined up defending a perfect record and was sent off as an incredible 1-10 favourite.
Settled behind his pacemaker and three-parts brother Bullet Train, the four-year-old swept into the lead passing the three-furlong marker under jockey Tom Queally.
The Galileo colt came home with a full 11 lengths in hand over Excelebration, who was suffering defeat for the fifth time at the hands of this superb horse.
* Joe Fanning, the first Flat jockey to reach 100 winners this year, is looking forward to some decent rides at Hamilton Park today and expects Hamis Al Bin to run well in the McGhee's Teaz Handicap, writes Gordon Brown.
He said: "He won nicely at Wolverhampton but was disappointing at Kempton in the follow-up. He's had some time off since then but is bouncing at home."
Fanning will partner Steer By The Stars in the Maiden Stakes and he added: "Her first two runs were very good but she didn't seem to get home at Leicester last time. If she's back to her best, she could go close."
He also rides Saslong in the Auction Maiden Stakes. He said: "He was third at Southwell on his only run as a two-year-old. He tired on the ground at Ripon first time this season but he's better than that."
Always Ends Well is Fanning's final mount in the Saints & Sinners Racenight Next Week Handicap.
"You get what you see with her as she's only a little filly but she was a decent second a couple of runs ago at Lingfield and has run well at Hamilton before," he added.
