Seven Lenght Success for Woodford General


Seven lengths was the winning margin in the end, with Getawiggleon pipping Knight Of Malta for second spot.

The winner, by Dark Angel’s son Gutaifan, who was a winner of the 2015 Prix Robert Papin and Flying Childers Stakes, had run well in a course and distance maiden last back-end on his last of three starts at two.

Winning trainer Kieran Cotter said of his exciting youngster “We always thought this lad had a huge amount of potential but in a winter maiden you just can’t be sure, He’s definitely stakes material and he’s from a very good family. He loves this ground and he’s incredibly tough”

Gutaifan progeny enjoyed a fruitful juvenile campaign in 2019 with 32 individual winners in Ireland and Great Britain.
