Sergeant Thunder got off the mark at Worcester last month and looks like he'll be one of those keeping Paul Nicholls' yard ticking over during the summer. Market Rasen winner Rolling Maul was withdrawn from a race at Ffos Las last week on account of the going and has to be respected but MANJAKANI looked a potentially useful novice when beating a previous winner by 12 lengths at Stratford on debut, despite looking in need of the run - he could be another winner for the champ. Winning pointer Finish The Story could be one to note for future reference.
