Japan Cup winner Falbrav to join Cumani.

LUCA CUMANI has received a major boost for the upcoming Flat season with news that last year's Japan Cup winner Falbrav will leave Italy to join his Newmarket yard.

Falbrav, who in addition to his Japanese victory won a further two Group 1 events in his homeland for previous trainer Luciano d'Auria, is the best performer to emerge from Italy for several years.

It is understood that a disagreement between d'Auria and Scuderia Rencati, owners of the five-year-old, has prompted the switch.

Connections have reportedly been at loggerheads since last October's Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, in which Falbrav finished ninth.

Scuderia Rencati's other horses previously trained

by d'Auria will be split between Italian trainers Emilio Borromeo, and Luigi and Guiseppe Broghi.
