Cumani set to run Seta in May Hill.
A TRIP to Doncaster is on the cards for the Luca Cumani-trained Seta after her impressive debut win over 7f at Newmarket last week, writes Andrew Scutts.
The daughter of Pivotal was sent off a well-backed favourite, and landed plenty of hefty bets as she drew eight lengths clear.
Seta, now 8-1 second favourite with the sponsor for next year's Stanjames.com 1,000 Guineas, is set to step up in trip for the May Hill Stakes on September 10.
The trainer's daughter, Francesca Cumani, said on lucacumani.com: "It wasn't a surprise that she won, but we were not expecting her to win by eight lengths. She's an exciting prospect, but the fact that she was able to win by eight lengths might indicate that those fillies she beat weren't up to much.
"To put the distance she did between herself and her opponents in such a short time after a modest early gallop is still some feat but, even so, we intend stepping her up in trip to a mile in the May Hill and bypass the Prestige at Goodwood [August 29]."
Cumani added: "The trip isn't the issue, more that being such a tall filly, the configuration of the flat, galloping track at Doncaster will suit Seta much better than the twist and turns of Goodwood, where inexperience could easily catch her out."
