Soldier to the fore!
Alan Spence’s Soldier In Action, pictured above, beat stablemate Austrian School in a thrilling finish at Goodwood. The Kingsley Park pair lined up in the Royal Sussex Regiment Handicap, run over two miles on Good ground. Austrian School, Dr Jim Walker’s three-year-old Teofilo colt, made just about all the running under Ryan Moore until Soldier In Action and Silvestre de Sousa mounted their challenge in the last furlong. The five-year-old son of Soldier Of Fortune won the event by a length and a half.
