Way back in June on Derby day THUNDER STRIKE was a winner for me. He then followed that win up with a 4th placed finish in the Coventry Stakes. He failed at odds on next time out, but two encouraging runs since then have shown that he could be back to his best. Last time out at York he had Sleeper King in behind and while it’s conceivable Sleeper King could improve on that performance due to easier ground I think that’s a theory I wouldn’t want to buy into. Any concerns about Thunder Strike acting on easier ground are at the moment all unproven as he’s never raced on it. Being the only one in the field to have course and distance form, couple with some impressive results between May and June, the Hannon/Hughes 2-year-old looks the one to be with.

BIOGRAPHER is a horse that a lot of people were excited about at the start of the season. At the end of last season he beat the highly thought of Sir Graham Wade on soft ground over 14 furlongs at Ascot. The consensus is that he needs ground on the softer side and he hasn’t had those conditions this season. However he has shown decent bits of form in unfavourable conditions. His 4th behind Ebor winner Tiger Cliff back in May has worked out well. He has also been beaten by Caucus who has since finished 4th in the long distance race at the Ebor meeting. With condition to suit a big run can be expected from this smart looking 4-year-old.
