Thundering Blue team mulling Ascot options

David Menuisier eyeing Royal run for his York winner

Up to £40 in bonus funds

David Menuisier is in no rush to firm up plans for Thundering Blue after his impressive win at York last week.

The grey bolted up from a handicap mark of 93 and Royal Ascot is now on his agenda, as long as the ground is not too fast.

Menuisier also has his eyes fixed on a return to York for the York Smith’s Cup in July.

“There’s a little bit if time to think about which race at Ascot. He’s come out of his race fine and I’ll decide in the next few weeks,” said Menuisier.

“There are a few options, obviously, but it will also depend on the ground. If it was rattling fast, I wouldn’t be keen on running him so it’s all up in the air.

“We think he’ll stay a mile and half so we do have more options now.

“He looked impressive at York. We may look to stepping him up in class, but we also have to consider the John Smith’s Cup back at York in July. He’s a course and distance winner and a strongly-run 10 furlongs will be good for him.

“We’ve no idea what the weather will be like in four weeks. Two years ago it was soft at Royal Ascot and last year it was rattling, you just can’t predict it.”
