Canford Cliffs betting odds
Before even making his horse racing debut, Canford Cliffs already had an elevated reputation, being a £50,000 son of Tagula out of an unraced half-sister to four winners up to middle distances. Richard Hannon wasted little time in identifying Canford Cliffs as the best horse he has ever trained and given the cosyness of his opening two victories in a maiden and the Coventry Stakes at Ascot, this assessment seemed merited.
Canford Cliffs now readying to be among the Royal Ascot runners
Life as a three-year-old started slowly for Canford Cliffs, with three straight defeats, but he soon put things right in the Irish 2000 Guineas and then in the St James’ Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot. Canford Cliffs is now preparing to be among the Royal Ascot runners again in 2011 as a mouth-watering clash with Goldikova in the Queen Anne Stakes awaits as the pair battle to be crowned the best miler among the horses aged four and over.
