Soldiers is a 4yo lightly raced Metropolitan Winner that has just gone to a freshen up after a successful preperation. He had 10 starts for 1 win at Doomben over 1350m and 3 placings at Gold Coast & Caloundra all over 1400m.

This gelding is an extremely versatile horse being able to sit handy or come from behind in his races. Forget his last start where he started favourite and wasn't beaten far but run his race prior to jumping where he sweated up badly on a hot day.

Definately a metro horse at his best and will be an extremely good purchase for anyone searching for a horse that is rarely far away.

Vet inspections welcome.
