Thunderbolt Jaxon | Trainer: PETER CHAPPLE-HYAM

Owned by the Comic Strip and Pete C-H. Highly rated as a 2yo on the gallops but recurrent and chronic sore shins kept him off the racecourse all year.

He finished extremely tired after his one run for us and will come on a lot - there could be a decent handicap in him later in the year.
