I woke up to shock news this morning that Sheikh Obaid is moving all 23 horses he has with Luca Cumani to Roger Varain including the King George winner, Postponed. It was also Cumani that gave him his biggest ever winner when High-Rise won the Derby. No decision has been given as to why of yet and I'll doubt we get one. A serious kick in the teeth for one of the best in the business and even stranger decision with the Arc de Triomphe just over a couple of weeks away for which Postponed is one of the leading opponents to Treve, John Oxx has really struggled since the Aga Khan moved his horses to Dermot Weld. Growing up, Cumani was the the man in my eyes and the stable I elected to follow in the 1980s in my most formative years.
A little bird tells me that Rebecca Curtis has her string arond three weeks more forward than usual so they should be a stable to watch out for in the coming weeks. Her stable star O'Faolain's Boy is back after a season off the track and the 2014 RSA Chase winner will have his season geared around a crack at the Gold Cup.
