Tom Scudamore: “Remastered has an outstanding chance”
Coral ambassador looks ahead to his four rides at Haydock on Saturday
I think Michael [Scudamore] has found a good race for Sashenka here. She has been slightly frustrating in that she’s not got her head in front yet but she’s generally been consistent.
She does have a bit to find with some of these at the weights but she’ll handle the soft ground and I think she comes here with a decent chance.
I ride Destined To Shine for the first time, he had a very good season last year, running consistently throughout.
He’s had his wind tweaked again over the summer, and in what looks a competitive little race, at his best he’d not be without a chance.
I’d like to think Remastered has an outstanding chance in the feature Tommy Whittle Chase. I’ve schooled him since the fall in the Ladbrokes Trophy and he’s shown no ill effects from that tumble.
It was clear for all to see that he was running a massive race that day, he’ll handle conditions here no problem, and we think he’s a very nice horse, with, as I say, an outstanding chance to gain some compensation for the bad luck at Newbury.
I end the day on Poker Play. He bounced back to form on soft ground at Ffos Las time but it can be never be soft enough for this fellow, so any more rain would be welcome, he’s at his best when it’s barely raceable!
It’s another open looking contest but he’d be there with each-way chances for sure.
