Thunderball Surprises In The Soft
19th April 2012
Prior to this race Thunderball had never run in such testing conditions, with the lodgic being such a flashy mover would never perform well in such soft ground. The official going was soft, however by the time of the race 3:20pm there had been a huge downpoor and the ground was much closer to heavy.
Thunderball's normal leading tactics did not go to plan as he found himself behind a wall of horses early on, on the day this proved no problem for him as he showed a impressive turn of foot to get up by 1l providing Scott with his First winner on turf.
