Tom Scudamore: “Titian has schooled well ahead of hurdles debut”

Coral ambassador looks ahead to his four rides at Cheltenham on Saturday

Cheltenham 12.05 – Titian

We won this juvenile hurdle with Adagio 12 months ago, but he came here following two runs over hurdles, whereas Titian is making his debut over the obstacles.

He showed a decent level of form on the flat though, and signed off for William Haggas with a win, and he’s schooled well at home so we’d be hopeful of a promising first run for us.

Cheltenham 1.15 – Moonlighter

Moonlighter does have to bounce back from a disappointing last run, in the Haldon Gold Cup, although it’s a race that’s worked out well with Greaneteen and Hitman finishing first and second in the Tingle Creeek.

He just wasn’t himself that day and was beaten from a very early stage. Put that run aside and I’d give him a chance here, but as I say, he has to bounce back.

Cheltenham 1.50 – Siruh Du Lac

In the feature Racing Post Gold Cup I’m on Siruh Du Lac, who’s had some well-documented problems but does come here off the back of a run over hurdles.

Conditions will suit him well, and while it’s as competitive as you’d expect, he wouldn’t be without an each-way chance.

Cheltenham 3.35 – Runasimi River

Runasimi River has done fantastically well for connections, with her latest victory coming at Hereford last month.

I’ve not ridden her for a while, but although this is a step into more competitive company, she’s tough, honest, and off bottom weight I’m sure she’ll give a good account of herself.
