 TAKING A CLOSER LOOK AT THE OPPOSITION
 TEAM (Luca) CUMANI: POSTPONED
 
In your Racing Post yesterday Peter Thomas met up with Newmarket trainer Luca Cumani the man preparing Postponed for Ascot on Saturday who is also eying a milestone in Germany next month.
 
LUCA CUMANI:
 “HE’S more than 40 years into his English sojourn and Luca Cumani can afford to laugh about it now, but there was a time when the doubtful charms of his adopted country must have threatened him running straight back to Milan, screaming dementedly in Italian.

 

“Back in the day, when Blighty had yet to embrace all things continental and was still living in a dark age of boiled beef and carrots, the young √©migr√©, by now under the wing of Henry Cecil at Warren Place, tested the cultural waters with a prank that highlighted the gulf he was attempting to bridge. When I came over, England was better run than Italy but with worse food, explains the 66 –year- old with a wicked grin, and when I was working for Henry there was a girl there who asked me one day how you grew spaghetti ….

GOLDEN HORN
In your Racing Post today Pages 1 and 2.  Jon Lees brings a word of caution from Gosden:

"The all conquering Investec Derby and Coral-Eclipse winner is a top-priced 1-2 for the Group I, but Gosden said the unbeaten three-year-old would be up against the cream of the older-horse middle-distance division in the Qipco-backed Ascot midsummer showpiece from which, only duel Prix de Triomph Treve is missing.


Alastair Down brings news, from Team (John) Gosden : 
"GOLDEN HORN, the colt who has given this season genuine heft,  was in action on the wall-mounted big screen in John Gosden’s office at Clarehaven last Thursday. This is the Now Show with Golden Horn odds-on for Saturday’s King George. Gosden says: “This is him working this morning on Waterhall. It was no more than a seven-furlong breeze – he’s a fit horse and will do this again on either Monday or Tuesday.


 
 “ Next up is Eagle Top and the footage suggests a slightly more serious piece of work without being gun-to-the-head stuff with the four-year-old quickening up in style.
 
“Eagle Top is third favourite for the big race and Gosden says: “I am pleased with him and he worked very well this morning. I was happy with him going into the Hardwick but things did not go according to plan. “


“This is an oblique reference to the contretemps between Eagle Top’s jockey Frankie Dettori and Adam Kirby on Postponed at Royal Ascot. Gosden made his displeasure with Kirby abundantly clear. It is not an open wound but the race still rankles with him, and it is no secret that Dettori and Kirby are not on speaking terms.


“Eagle Top was the subject of considerable stable confidence that day but he could not get to within three lengths of Snow Sky. Gosden contents himself with a simple observation:


“Eagle Top is a very legitimate older-horse contender for the King George. “
 
“The Hardwick was a very rare cloud passing over the sun that has otherwise shone unceasingly on Gosden and his team all season.
 
“He is £1 million clear in his quest for a second trainer’s championship, there is a Derby one-two freshly incised to the record book, Jack Hobbs knocked his Irish Derby field out of the  ground, and just nine days after running in the Oaks Star Of Seville took the Prix de Diane under a superb Dettori steer.

 

 
 
 
Atzeni replaces Kirby on Postponed

By Richard Birch

“ADAM KIRBY has been replaced by Andre Atzeni for the ride on Postponed in Ascot’s midsummer showpiece, the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

 

“Kirby has ridden the Luca Cumani-trained colt on his last three starts, notably a controversial Hardwick Stakes third to Snow Sky after which John Gosden, trainer of the runner up Eagle Top, was highly critical of the riders tactics.

 

“Gosden could not hide his anger after the race at Ascot and spoke out to the effect that Kirby’s riding was not in the true spirit of racing, claiming his tactics were “not clean and not intelligent “.

 

“Cumani said last night: “Sheikh Mohammed Obaid has decided to give the ride to Andrea as he won on the horse last year. “Andrea was the regular partner of Postponed throughout his three-year-old campaign last season, the pair teaming up to land two valuable races, highlighted by the Group 2 Great Voltigeur  Stakes at York where he beat one of Saturday’s rivals Snow Sky by two and a quarter lengths in the style of a rapidly improving middle-

 

“Kirby’s name appears beside three horses on the advanced card for Newmarket on Saturday, one of them, Fibre Optic in the 1m5f handicap, for Cumani.

 

“Postponed has yet to win in three races this year, finishing runner-up to Gosden’s Western Hymn in the Group 3 Gordon Richards Stakes at Sandown, third to Al Kazeem in the Group 1 Tattersalls Gold Cup at the Curragh, and then third to Snow Sky at Royal Ascot.

 

“In the latter race Kirby, who became Sheikh Mohammed Obaid Al Maktoum’s retained rider when Atzeni signed for Qatar Racing and Frankie Dettori were involved in a highly publicised bumping match after both jockey’s tried to get an early position just in behind hot favourite Telescope, who they wanted to track.

 

“Postponed, a best price 12-1 chance to secure a first Group I win in the King George, faces the sternest task in his career at the Berkshire track against unbeaten Investec Derby and Coral- Eclipse hero Golden Horn, generally 4-9 shot.
