Thundering Blue to storm home in Cambridgeshire

Thundering Blue – 8-1 Bet365 and Betfred ( 5 places ) Betfred Cambridgeshire


Up and coming trainer David Menuisier has a great chance of winning one of the season’s major handicaps on Saturday afternoon with the promising Thundering Home. The four-year-old son of Exchange Rate has not stopped improving since taking a Class 4 contest at Epsom back in July off a lowly mark of 76, a full 17lb less than the grey’s current rating of 93.

Following that victory at the home of the Derby the gelding ran out a comfortable winner of a 1m 2f handicap at Newmarket three weeks later but it was the horse’s most recent performance which resulted in bookmakers promoting Thundering Blue to the head of the ante-post market for the Heritage Handicap worth just short of £100k to the winner.

Facing a field of twelve rivals in the hugely competitive BetBright Recall Handicap at Sandown on the 2nd September jockey Jim Crowley looked to have given his mount plenty to do in last place turning for home but coming with a storming run on the wide outside the well-fancied 11-2 chance soon had the race sewn up despite jinking left in the closing stages. The shrewd Menuisier has had this race in mind for some time and that win guarantees his charge a place on Saturday and with more improvement anticipated a big run looks certain.

77 Horses stood their ground at Monday’s declaration stage which means that many will have to settle for a place in Friday’s consolation race but with Thundering Blue standing at number 34 in the current pecking order and a safety limit of 35 David Menuisier’s charge will not be one of them. The biggest dangers to the selection may come from the stable of Andrew Balding who will have two fancied contenders in Naval Warfare and Brorocco, providing the latter makes the cut needing just one above him to come out at Thursday’s final declaration stage.

The former was not beaten far in a Sandown Listed contest last time after making all at Newmarket and will attempt to become the fifth three-year-old to win the race this century. Brorocco will try to win for a second time within a week after enjoying a comfortable victory in a valuable Newbury handicap last weekend, a reproduction of which should see the mount of David Probert bang there at the finish.
