A highly talented two year old for Mark Johnston, Thunderous won all three of his juvenile outings. Scoring over 7 furlongs each time and rounding out the season with a convincing listed success.
He was only seen twice during his classic campaign but looked a hot prospect when scoring a narrow success in the Dante stakes to beat Highest Ground by a neck. Unfortunately his form took a major dip off last season and he failed to win in any of his four runs.
Being brushed aside by Waldkonig over 10 furlongs before stepping up in trip. His best run came in a group 3 to be 2nd behind the impressive Al Aasy.
A good showing at Royal Ascot rounded out his season as he came a respectable 5th in the Hardwicke Stakes behind Wonderful Tonight.
Gelded ready for this season he’s again failed to put his best foot forward. He’s slowly been moving up in trip and has run well over 13.5-14 furlongs without managing to win.
Coming 2nd to the impressive Hamish at Chester before a valiant 2nd to Stradivarius in the Yorkshire Cup. Last seen trying 2 miles for the first time it looked like he was outclassed as he only managed to come home in 4th.
More is needed here but he might be able to bully this small field from the front.
