Soldier In Milan (Soldier Of Fortune) Wins At Monksgrange

Soldier Of Fortune Newcomer Bolts Up At Monksgrange

Soldier In Milan (5g Soldier Of Fortune – Time In Milan, by Milan) produced a taking debut performance to run out a clear winner of Sunday’s five-year-old geldings maiden at Monksgrange.

The Cormac Doyle-trained newcomer was sent off favourite under Jack Hendrick and raced prominently throughout. Drawing clear from two out, he needed little encouragement to win by 16 lengths, with another eight lengths back to the third.

Soldier In Milan will now be offered at the Goffs Aintree Sale. The Soldier Of Fortune gelding was bred by Gerard Coleman out of Time In Milan (Milan), who has a four-year-old full-brother and three-year-old full-sister to the winner.
