Cummings Upbeat About Weekend Stakes Performers

Wednesday, 8th August 2018

While gun 4YO Kementari waits to make his second race start of the season for Godolphin, the blue army’s head trainer James Cummings has his immediate attention on Saturday’s two black type events in Australia. Commenting on exciting stable addition Home Of The Brave, Cummings notes, "[He] has continued to acclimatise well as we get closer to his first-up assignment in the G3 Aurie’s Star (Flemington). While he’s had a solid preliminary foundation for this, he will no doubt show improvement through the run as he gets more accustomed to how races unfold here.” In Sydney exciting 3YO prospect Plague Stone, winner of the Rosebud Prelude last month, takes on stakes company in the Listed Rosebud at Rosehill Gardens, with Cummings enthusing, “Plague Stone has been bottled up and held together as we proceed second up to the Rosebud. He continues to look very sharp since his strong win over five furlongs a few weeks ago and looks set to let down strongly yet again in what looks another suitable race early on in his campaign.”
