Thunder Max was always prominent when making a winning debut at Doncaster and could be anything. Sweeping was fourth in the Chesham at Ascot in June and third in a Listed race at Salisbury last time. Gelded since, he might have place claims again. Tuscan narrowly beat Mahagoni at Thirsk in August but the runner-up is now 7lb better off and Approachability is 6lb better off than when beaten a length-and-a-quarter by Grenoble at Nottingham. WESTOVER beat a decent yardstick on debut at Sandown and was clear of the rest when runner-up to Zechariah at Newbury last month. He is probably the one to beat on that form.
