Son Of Soldier Of Fortune Remains Unbeaten Over Fences

The Dan Skelton-trained Dog Of War (7g Soldier of Fortune - Zainzana, by Green Desert) stayed on well to make it two from two over fences at Bangor on Saturday.

Successful earlier this month, the bay stepped up to two and a half miles at the weekend and was ridden to chase the leaders by Harry Skelton. Ridden approaching the final fence, he ran on well on the run-in to lead close home and deny the favourite by a length and a half.

A €95,000 purchase at the Goffs Land Rover Sale, Dog Of War runs in the colours of Colm Donlon. The son of Beeches Stud sire Soldier Of Fortune was bred by Haras du Logis Saint German.
