Cumani hopeful Seta can maintain winning streak

Luca Cumani will continue to take things slowly with his exciting filly Seta.

The flashy chestnut created a huge impression on her racecourse introduction last season, winning a Newmarket maiden by eight lengths.

She then finished a close third in the May Hill Stakes at Doncaster before being put away for the year.

The Pivotal three-year-old was drawn on the 'wrong' side in the 1000 Guineas but has had no trouble winning her last two starts, most recently a Listed race at Warwick.

Next on the agenda is a similar contest at Bath, the EBF Dick Hern Fillies' Stakes.

"She will go to Bath for a Listed race on August 15 as long as the ground isn't too quick," said Cumani.

Meanwhile, John Gosden's Arctic Cosmos could go straight to the Ladbrokes St Leger without another run.

A son of Derby winner North Light, the colt finished second in the King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot and flashed home to take third place in the Gordon Stakes at Goodwood earlier in the week.

The Great Voltigeur at York was immediately mentioned as a likely target, but Gosden, who won the Leger with Lucarno in 2007, would not be afraid to go to Doncaster without the aid of another run.

"He came out of the race fine and he just ran out of ground," said Gosden. "If it's good to firm in the Voltigeur he won't go there, and will go straight for the Leger."
