Cumani Aims UK Stayer Mad Rush At Melb Cup
Meanwhile UK trainer Luca Cumani confirmed that, while Purple Moon is being aimed at races in Japan & Hong Kong this season, stable-mate Mad Rush is a likely Melbourne carnival contender. Racing Victoria's Leigh Jordan (who recently returned from an overseas recruiting trip) told Radio Sport 927 yesterday: "I'd say if you pinned me down to 2 strong possibles (European horses most likely to travel to Melbourne), it would be Luca Cumani's Mad Rush & Jane Chapple-Hyam with Yellowstone." Mad Rush is a 4YO with 2 wins from 7 starts (including the Old Newtown Cup over 12 furlongs by 4-lengths at Haydock Park on July 5 carrying 9st 7lb).
