Walking Thunder should strike again

Sep 07, 2017

Three starts for two wins and a second - that's a record which underlines a horse with a lot of ability and who can go far.

Of course, I am speaking of trainer Daniel Meagher's rising star WALKING THUNDER.

Although the five-year-old Australian-bred is meeting his toughest rivals thus far tonight, he should measure up with his star potential and current trackform.

By current trackform, I am referring to his trial last week when he ran home under a stranglehold to finish a three-quarter-length second to Redoubt, a last-start winner.

I could imagine him winning that 1,000m hit-out on the Polytrack had Walking Thunder's rider given his mount his head.

Furthermore, Walking Thunder covered more distance than Redoubt by travelling wide for most of the journey.
