Smart Debut Winner By Soldier Of Fortune
Favour And Fortune (4g Soldier Of Fortune - Fleur Rose, by Flemensfirth) shaped like a smart prospect when running out a commanding winner of Tuesday’s bumper at Southwell.
Alan King’s newcomer was well-supported in the market ahead of the two mile contest and was given a patient ride by Tom Cannon. Making headway from two furlongs out, he was pushed along to lead approaching the final furlong and soon drew clear. Running on strongly, he scored by five and a half lengths, with another 12 lengths back to the third.
Bred by Ballymorisheen Stables, Favour And Fortune runs in the colours of the late Trevor Hemmings.
