SOUNDSLIKETHUNDER made all on his reappearance at Doncaster and was always holding stablemate Lexington Knight, who has placed twice again since. The third won next time at Newmarket so the form looks decent and he can defy his penalty. Ensyaaby was only beaten a neck by a subsequent winner at Leicester but never threatened next time at Goodwood and is becoming expensive to follow. Achelois is another starting to look exposed but Shoot For The Moon wasn’t entirely disgraced here four weeks ago and can only improve.
