Soldier Of Fortune Four-Year-Old Battles Back For Bumper Win
Stay If U Want To (4g Soldier Of Fortune - Fiddlededee, by Beneficial) produced a game performance to get off the mark in Thursday’s bumper at Market Rasen.
Jonjo O’Neill’s charge finished a promising fourth on debut at the end of last season and was reunited with Jonjo O’Neill Junior in Thursday’s two mile contest. Ridden to make all, he was headed before the two furlong pole, but kept on well when ridden a furlong later. Running on strongly close home, he led soon after to win by half a length, with another six and a half lengths back to the third horse.
Stay If U Want To is a full-brother to stablemate Soldierofthestorm (Soldier Of Fortune), who won a maiden hurdle for the same connections earlier this year. The promising four-year-old is owned by Mrs Peter Bond and bred by Mrs Ann Bond.
