Jul 6 2020 Cummings team aiming high in spring

The $7.5 million Golden Eagle (1500m) will be the aim for Group 1 winner Prince Fawaz (Fastnet Rock) as he returns from a leg injury suffered when finishing down the field in the Doncaster Mile (Gr 1, 1600m) in April. Prince Fawaz won the J J Atkins (Gr 1, 1600m) as a two-year-old, while he was runner-up to the now-retired Castelvecchio (Dundeel) two starts back in the Rosehill Guineas (Gr 1, 2000m). "If he comes back and is 100 per cent, he will be well and truly capable of being among the best of them," Cummings said. The stable had Mizzy (Zoustar) finish third in the Golden Eagle last year; she has not raced since due to a strained muscle. "She has been sound and healthy for a while now. We have given her time and she will come back and repay," he said Check out the latest betting markets.
