Cumani Also Confirms Melb Cup Target
Regular Melbourne visitor Luca Cumani also confirmed Ascot Gold Cup 3rd-placed Purple Moon will be a likely visitor to Melbourne this spring. Cumani (who also has 2008 Melbourne Cup runner-up Bauer & Australian-owned Manighar on Cup preparations) stated: "I haven't finalised my horses for Melbourne yet, but Purple Moon is likely to go back again." In addition, the connections of French stayer Kasbah Bliss (who has also forged a career as a hurdler) declared their desire to travel to Australia for this year's 150th Melbourne Cup. Kasbah Bliss (trained by Francois Doumen) ran an even race to finish 6th in the Ascot Gold Cup.
