Triumph aim for Soldier

Useful Flat performer Soldier In Action is to join Nicky Henderson for the winter from the yard of Mark Johnston, having recently been gelded.

Nicky Henderson has inherited a smart recruit from the Flat

The three-year-old son of Soldier Of Fortune gained three wins on the level last year and ran in the Queen's Vase at Royal Ascot.

Mike Spence, son of owner Alan, said: "Soldier In Action is set to go Nicky Henderson's and we are going to have a go at the Triumph Hurdle with him.

"He didn't have the heaviest of seasons, as he had a foot abscess. The plan is to give him two runs, then have a crack at the Triumph.

"He won't stay hurdling long as he will go back with Mark Johnston on the Flat. He has a bit of class and he could be quite useful over hurdles."

Soldier In Action is rated 105 on the level.
