Trainer Luca Cumani announced on Sunday he has his sights set on the G1 Prix De l'Arc de Triomphe next with yesterday's King George winner Postponed. Cumani told the Racing Post, "Postponed has come out of the King George 100%. He couldn't be better." "There is no Group 1 left in Europe over 12f/2400 meters except the Arc, so I think we have to have our sights set on that."
