Modern Warfair

2014 gelding by Well Chosen ex Brooklyn Brook (Alderbrook)

PRICE: £89,000+ VAT (includes all sales costs)

A strong, scopey son of the excellent sire Well Chosen (45% winners to runners, 14% strike-rate)

Put up a hugely promising performance to finish second on debut to a very highly-regarded Gigginstown recruit who also had the benefit of two previous runs. The race was run in by far the fastest time of the day.

Connections had started off Grade 2 winner Jury Duty in the exact same maiden in 2015 – he finished sixth, beaten 20 lengths.

Dam is a half-sister to the tough and classy 10-time winner Brooklyn Brownie, who was also just touched off in the Grand Sefton at Aintree. One step further back, three black-type National Hunt performers lend further strength to what is an excellent National Hunt pedigree.
