THUNDER STRIKE is out of a prolific mare and a half-brother to a handful of winning sprinters. Richard Hannon's colt won't need to be a world beater to land this on his debut judged on the opposition's efforts so far. Bandolier is likely to improve but will need to as he was beaten nearly nine lengths on his introduction at Nottingham and Riley's Missile is getting no closer despite having already run three times. Party Ruler was tailed off on his debut at Newbury and Musical Molly is preferred to Orient Sky of the remaining newcomers.
