Soldier Of Fortune Gelding Delivers In Bumper
Victory Club (5g Soldier Of Fortune - La Shalak, by Shalford) made a winning rules debut for new connections in the two mile bumper at Southwell.
Successful on his second start between the flags for Harriet Dickin, the Soldier Of Fortune gelding was subsequently bought by Dan Skelton, whose colours he carried on Wednesday. He was sent off second favourite under Jack Andrews, who positioned the bay in mid-division and switched right to challenge early in the straight. Leading inside the final furlong, he was ridden out to win by a length.
Victory Club was bred by Gerard and Yvonne Kennedy.
