Ridgemont Highlands’ resident stallion Canford Cliffs has been in good form of late, and the five time G1 winning son of Tagula was once again among the winners when responsible for a double in Britain on Thursday.
His durable son Tomily made it win number ten when he saluted by three parts of a length over seven furlongs at Chelmsford, while Canford Cliffs’ gelding War Glory won for an eighth time while scoring over seven furlongs at Lingfield on Thursday.
Out of the Acclamation mare Cake, the David O’Meara trained Tomily chased leader early before being switched right and was ridden to lead a furlong out before staying on to post a convincing win under Adam Kirby.
Tomily has been in good form this year, and earlier in 2019 notched up a hatrick of wins when victorious at Windsor, Ayr, and Catterick respectively.
His half-brother War Glory proved far too strong for his 12 rivals when romping home to a two and three quarter length over dual G3 winner Gifted Master in Thursday’s Bombardier British Hopped Amber Beer Handicap on Thursday to take his tally of wins to eight.
War Of Glory has now won three of his last four starts. His sire Canford Cliffs is currently responsible for the earners of more than $18 000 000- and counting.
Sire of 34 stakes horses the world over, including recent G2 Antler Luggage Fillies Classic dead-heater winner La Falaise, Canford Cliffs’ first South African foals are arriving to rave reviews this season.
