The 23-year old finished 14th with a strong run/shoot - the best performance by a British competitor since Ben McLean's seventh place.
Hungary's Adam Marosi, the world champion, retained his title in Moscow with home favourite Ilia Frolov second and David Svoboda, of the Czech Republic, third.
"He can be happy with his performance as part of his preparations for the World Championships in September," said Pentathlon GB performance director Jan Bartu
Woodbridge recovered from a shaky fencing performance to climb the rankings but team-mate and fellow Beijing Olympian Sam Weale didn't - and even a season's best swim could only lift him to a disappointing 25th.
