Son Of Soldier Of Fortune Scores On Chase Debut
Zee Man (7g Soldier Of Fortune - Sky High Flyer, by Anabaa) returned from a lay-off to make a winning chase debut at Fakenham on Monday.
Making his first start for the Olly Murphy Stable, he was held up behind the leaders by Fergus Gregory and improved into third approaching three out. Making further headway to lead before the final fence, he soon went clear and scored by seven lengths in comfortable fashion.
Previously placed in bumpers, Zee Man was bred by the French Bloodstock Agency out of Group performer Sky High Flyer. His Beeches Stud sire Soldier Of Fortune looks set for an exciting year ahead, with his first Irish crop having turned four on January 1st.
