Lightening won well at Newcastle under Andrew Thornton. Always travelling nicely he joined the leaders coming into the straight and went on to win by four and a half lengths.
"Not a bad handicap for the class and the third is a fair benchmark for the form. LIGHT THE CITY wasn´t at his best when supported at Sedgefield last time out, but this better ground proved right up his street and he made no mistake off the same mark. The 8yo is capable of holding his form and would have to be of interest if turned out under a penalty."
