Racing: Punters' Guide - Tiutchev can rise to the occasion
The former top jump jockey Steve Smith Eccles analyses today's Lanzarote Hurdle
Saturday 23 January 1999
Serenus: Sure to run a big race for a stable in cracking form. One to fight out the minor placings.
Tiutchev: The likely winner on the evidence of his good second to Bold Gait at Newbury on his seasonal debut. Travelling like a winner until falling here last time.
Davoski: As consistent as they come and placed in all seven of his novice hurdles. He will find this handicap a huge leap, however.
Young Spartacus: Up-and-coming sort who loves soft ground but steps up in class.
Frogmarch: I will give up racing if this one makes the frame.
Mister Rm: Has not shown the form to warrant consideration.
Nordansk: At 10 years of age and racing from out of the handicap, this veteran should be bringing up the rear.
Alka International: Not a prayer.
Conclusion: The progressive TIUTCHEV is the one I would like to be riding. My only fear is his fall at Kempton may have dented his confidence but if he has put that out of his mind the pounds 20,000 can be his. Serenus can claim minor prize-money for the in-form Nicky Henderson stable.
