Lady Ardilaun (Soldier Of Fortune) winning the Prix Bois Rouaud at Auteuil

Auteuil success for unbeaten 3yo Soldier Of Fortune filly

Lady Ardilaun (3f Soldier Of Fortune-Lady Scarlet, by King’s Theatre) looks another high-grade performer for Soldier Of Fortune following her victory at Auteuil on Monday.

Trained by Francois Nicolle for owner-breeder Antonia Devin, the three-year-old had won on her debut at Dax in May and came out ahead in the Prix Bois Rouaud at Auteuil with ease.

A niece of last season’s G1 Tingle Creek Chase and G1 Melling Chase winner Politologue, she showed great acceleration to go clear in the race’s final stages and won by a length and a quarter.
