A sensational weekend for Canford Cliffs continued on Sunday when rugby legend Ronan O’Gara’s colours were carried to victory by Most Beautiful (2f Canford Cliffs-Saphira’s Fire, by Cape Cross) in the G3 Grangecon Stud Stakes at The Curragh.
An impressive Navan maiden winner on her previous run, the David Wachman-trained filly took the step up to Group company in her stride.
“She’s always worked like a good filly. She’s big and is still a bit weak, you could see that in the last furlong. She has a nice future,” said Wachman. “Ronan couldn’t be here today as he’s on a family holiday in the south of France but I’d say he won’t miss the next day wherever that is.
“She’s well-entered up and will go further. The one thing is she likes goodish ground.”
