Cumani Says Melb Cup Pair Settling In Well
UK-based trainer Luca Cumani's Melbourne Cup raiders Bauer & Mad Rush "are adapting well to their new surroundings in Australia ahead of November's Gr1 Melbourne Cup," reported racingpost.co.uk. Cumani's assistant Ed Walker confirmed: "As was to be expected, both horses & grooms were pretty exhausted (when they arrived last Saturday after a 51-hour journey). But after a few quiet days the team is now up & running, thoroughly looking forward to another crack at Australia's greatest prize. Both horses have returned to their pre-export weights, Bauer taking a little longer than Mad Rush. Their training programmes will resume today, having only been having long lead-outs & picks of grass whilst recovering from the trip. They seem to have settled in very well."
