VIDEO: Mighty Thunder lands Scottish National for home team
on 18 April 2021
Tom Scudamore, whose dad Peter is partner of winning trainer Lucinda Russell, gained compensation for defeat at Aintree

Mighty Thunder provided Scottish trainer Lucinda Russell with victory in the Coral Scottish Grand National at Ayr on Saturday.

Trained in Kinross by Russell and her partner Peter Scudamore, Mighty Thunder was an 8/1 chance for his latest National assignment after winning the Edinburgh National at Musselburgh and finishing second in the Midlands Grand National at Uttoxeter on his last two starts.

Rounding the home turn, it looked like Sandy Thomson could saddle the first two home, with 7/1 favourite Dingo Dollar and his stablemate The Ferry Master clear at the head of affairs.

However, Mighty Thunder responded to jockey Tom Scudamore’s urgings to close the gap and reeled in Dingo Dollar on the run-in to land a popular success by three-quarters of a length.

The Pat Fahy-trained Mister Fogpatches beat The Ferry Master to third place.

Mighty Thunder is the first home-trained winner of Scotland’s most famous jumps race since Merigo in 2012.
