Australian Racing: Price confident after Thunderstruck gallop

I'm Thunderstruck produced an impressive gallop last Saturday morning that has co-trainer Mick Price full of confidence for his return to action.

The four-year-old will return in this weekend's Group 1 Futurity Stakes over 1400 metres, for which he's an 11/4 chance, before then aiming for the All-Star Mile.

Jockey Joe Bowditch rode the son of Shocking in the work gallop and reported him to be in good form.

I'm Thunderstruck earns good report

"We said to Joe, 'come down and ride one, we need a rider, we'll put you on a good one' and he came back after and said, 'you told me you'd put me on a good one but I didn't think it was going to be that good'," Price, who trains in partnership with Michael Kent Jnr, said.

"He's a good judge, Joe Bowditch. He said 'he had a good blow, he recovered quickly and there's improvement to come'.

"He'll gallop Tuesday and he'll run into the money in the Futurity. If he peaks a bit (late), so be it, but then he will be spot on."

Last year's Golden Eagle winner made his return with a fifth placing in the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes over 1400 metres on 12th February and is one of 18 nominations for Saturday's Futurity Stakes.
