Distant Thunder can storm back at Larkhill
Saturday 14 March 2009
Distant Thunder (1.40), beaten a neck at Larkhill last month, can gain some recompense for that game effort in today's Coronation Cup at the same course.
The former handicapper found the trip too short when runner-up to Limerick Boy in a hunter chase at Newbury (23/4m) next time.
Bee An Bee (2.45) bolted up by 25 lengths in last year's Kent Grand National at Detling and should complete a sequence of eight straight open wins in this afternoon's renewal, albeit at very skinny odds. Glenbower Woods (2.10) should be a more backable price in the ladies' open following his unlucky run at Godstone a fortnight ago as he had just taken a narrow lead when unseating Hannah Grissell two fences out.
