19-length victory for Gwafa

19 lengths – that’s the margin by which Gwafa broke his maiden at Newmarket. Sent off the 5/6 favourite off the back of two promising runs, the Marco Botti colt led on the bit 2 furlongs out and drew further and further clear.

“We have always liked him but we didn’t expect to win by 19 lengths,” said Tony Nerses. “We will see what Marco wants to do as regards where we go next.”

Three-year-old Gwafa is a Tamayuz half-brother to Group 3 winner Marjalina and was a 60,000gns yearling purchase by Tony Nerses.
