Newcomer Continues Fine Run For Soldier Of Fortune
Custom Of The Sea (4g Soldier Of Fortune - Grianan Ailigh, by Shantou) continued a fine run for Soldier Of Fortune when running out an impressive debut winner of Sunday’s maiden hurdle at Killarney.
Joseph O’Brien’s charge was positioned in midfield by JJ Slevin and was pushed along to make headway from four out. Producing a challenge at the second last, he was soon clear and ran on well to win by five and a half lengths. Curragh maiden winner Boher Road (Vadamos) made a promising start over hurdles in second.
