The Ridgemont Highlands based Canford Cliffs enjoyed a good stint over the past weekend, with the former European star having multiple success in both Australian and the UK, and the five time G1 winning son of Tagula had more success on Monday.
This time it was Canford Cliffs’ daughter Bungee Jump who kept her sire to the fore, with that Grace Harris trained filly picking up the eighth win of her career when victorious at Chepstow.
The durable four-year-old stayed on gamely under Rossa Ryan to post a three-parts of a length win in the Acorn Property Group Handicap at Chepstow.
Bungee Jump, who has won both on turf and on all weather, has now won or placed in 20 races.
The filly is out of the Cadeaux Genereux mare Starchy.
Bungee Jump’s Irish 2000 Guineas winning sire Canford Cliffs enjoyed dual success in Australia over the past weekend, with his daughter Droplet winning at Dalby on Saturday, and his son Kaluapapa scoring at Betoota on the same day.
The triple Royal Ascot scorer also enjoyed a British double on Saturday with his gelded son War Glory lifting the Betfred Chelmsford City Cup for Richard Hannon, and another son, two-year-old Spantik, romping home to shed his maiden (second time out) over a mile at Lingfield.
Canford Cliffs, who won five G1 races in a row, is currently the sire of 30 black type performers, including group/graded winners Cliff’s Edge, Painted Cliffs, Most Beautiful, Posh Princess, Fish River, and Princess Asta, while his impressive Carey Group Buckhounds Stakes winner Salouen has earned in excess of £560 000 in stakes.
