Yeats head shot

Son Of Yeats Remains Unbeaten This Season

Soldier Of Love (7g Yeats - Monsignorita, by Classic Cliché) completed a hat-trick of wins when running out an impressive winner at Newton Abbot on Wednesday.

The Paul Nicholls-trained bay was sent off favourite for the three mile and two furlong chase, following his course and distance win last month. Harry Cobden rode him to track the leaders, asserting with five to jump and went clear from the second last. Running on well, he finished seven and a half lengths clear of the strung-out field.

Wednesday marked a fourth career success overall for Malcolm Denmark’s homebred, who won over hurdles last season and previously finished second in a bumper. The son of Yeats hails from the family of his breeder’s three-time Grade 1 winner Monsignor.
