Thunderbird One and Keepit impressed in training at Cambridge today

Galloping on the outside of a slow No.1 Grass Thunderbird One (Brooks) travelled nicely alongside stablemate Keepit (Orash) from the 1000m in 1:5.1, sprinting the final 600m in 36.6.   Both are in excellent order.

Sangster (Young) and El Roca (McNab) left 1000m behind in 1:4.5, finishing off in 36.8, to endorse their Hastings prospects.
