The infrastructure of the yard exemplifies the point. Take veterinary care; there is continuity each day with a vet available to deal with individual horses and any queries or issues that may arise. It is similar story as regards the Bedford House farrier.
No wonder, then, that the Cumani string is - and invariably has been in recent years - well over 100-strong. The track record speaks volumes, not least in maximising the potential of those occasional less than straight-forward horses. The same applies with under-achievers, who have come to the yard later in their careers only to improve out of all recognition (history relates that Alkaased arrived ahead of his four-year-old campaign with just one maiden win from six starts; by the end of his five-year-old season he had registered five more victories, including two Group 1 races and a Group 2. Now that's progress!).
One of Bedford House's prime assets is the location. Turn left out of the gates up the Bury Road and you don't have to go very far before finding yourself adjacent to the renowned Limekilns where some of the best gallops in the world are, including the Trial Ground - scene for many big-race tune-ups. Even closer to the yard is Long Hill and beyond that lies Warren Hill, the location for much of the routine conditioning exercise down by horses in the town. While Bury Side is on the doorstep, Racecourse Side is also easily accessible with a host of available training grounds.
That is the beauty of training in Newmarket - there is a gallop to suit every type of horse. Owned and managed by the Jockey Club Estates, there are over 50 miles of chalk-based turf gallops as well as several all-weather surfaces.
