A super storm is brewing at Ascot

The half-brother to Group 1 winner Superstorm, Galactic Storm, will head to Ascot Racecourse on Wednesday and take his place in the Glenroy Chaff Maiden (1500m).  

Out of the same mare, Stormy Nova, Galactic Storm raced at Geraldton on Melbourne Cup Day and found the line nicely despite racing a bit green.  

By Street Boss, the gelding demonstrated that stretching out from 1200m to 1500m will be beneficial and the inside barrier draw should allow him to settle nicely.  

He will also benefit from having a senior jockey in the saddle, with regular stable rider Clint Johnston-Porter taking over from stable apprentice Victoria Corver.  

His half-brother Superstorm didn’t win until his third career starts and until he stretched out to 1400m.  

In his second racing preparation he won a Listed race at Ascot, before placing in Group 1 company when racing in Victoria.  

It looks another big day on paper for leading trainer Adam Durrant with Solder, Ran God, New Amsterdam, and He’s All Mighty all accepted to take their place.
