Horse racing tips: Lion Of War made a mockery of rivals last time out and is a nice price to score at Newmarket | The Sun
6th July 2022

IF you're looking one of the most impressive wins of the season, then look no further than Lion Of War.

On his second run under Cieren Fallon at Newcastle at the end of last month, this son of Roaring Lion won by ten lengths.

Impressive over a distance of just seven furlongs.

But it doesn't tell the full story, as Fallon gave him just one tap on the bum and the colt was eased down with a furlong to go.

He clearly didn't beat much behind but the Charlie and Mark Johnston-trained runner looks to have a bright future.

His sire was a four-time Group 1 winner, claiming the Coral-Eclipse, Juddmonte, Irish Champion Stakes and Queen Elizabeth II Stakes in 2018.

Lion Of War has been entered in Saturday's Group 2 bet365 Superlative Stakes at Newmarket.

Fallon is jocked up for the contest that will likely see him take on the likes of Godolphin's Victory Dance.

As ever with a two-year-old race there are a load of unknowns but owners Qatar Racing clearly think a lot of Lion Of War to try him out at such a high level.

Speaking of his upcoming run, Fallon said: "You can question his opponents but what he's done has been very impressive.

"You know when you're sat on a good horse and he gave me a nice feel at Newcastle.

"We're going to find out a bit more on Saturday to find out how good he really is but he's done nothing wrong to date."

Lion Of War is currently a best-priced 4-1 for the contest, with Victory Dance the ante-post 5-2 favourite.

Royal Ascot flop Alfred Munnings – trained by Aidan O'Brien – is vying for favouritism but Ryan Moore is yet to be booked for the ride.
