Soldier Of Fortune Side On

Soldier Of Fortune Geldings Follows Up In Good Style

Lieutenant Mayne (5g Soldier Of Fortune – Tudor Fashion, by Presenting) made all to make it two from two under rules in Saturday’s Class 2 bumper at Uttoxeter.

The bay finished third on his sole start between the flags for Brian Hamilton last year and returned in January to win a bumper on his first start for John McConnell. Partnered by Ben Harvey once again on Saturday, he kept on well when ridden approaching the final furlong and went on to win by four and a half lengths, with another 23 lengths back to the third.

Bred by Daryl Deacon, the Soldier Of Fortune gelding is now owned by the Stone and McNeill families.
