Luca Cumani - Trainer Profile

Luca Cumani
Few trainers has achieved the success of Luca Cumani. But what may we learn of his talents for training two-year-olds? In recent years, his strike rate for debutantes has been disappointing with an ordinary 5% win rate. Juveniles priced 9/1 & less on debut often run well with over half hitting the frame. The downfall for many of these youngster is inexperience. It is especially difficult to win on turning tracks where racing knowledge is of paramount importance. In general, Cumani's better juveniles are most likely to prevail at the first time of asking, often in fields of debutantes.


Most trainers feature a much greater strike rate with juveniles on their second start but Cumani has failed to deliver with his fancied two-year-olds juveniles on their second outing, even with that initial experience on side. Juveniles priced 13/2 & less second time out attained a 9% win rate in recent years from quite a large sample. Their place rate is fair but nothing beyond the norm. If anything, juveniles priced 8/1+ on their second start are of greater interest.
