Rebecca Curtis: Wants Teaforthree to be ridden by Nick Scholfield
Nick Scholfield is in the frame to ride Teaforthree in the Cheltenham Gold Cup after Tony McCoy switched to Triolo D'Alene.
Scholfield partnered the Rebecca Curtis-trained 10-year-old into third place in last year's Grand National and currently does not have a ride in Friday's big race.
"Nick Scholfield may ride him, but obviously I've got to speak to the owners and see what they want to do," said Curtis.
"Nick is available to ride him, but I've got to put it by the owners.
"Teaforthree is in as good a form as we've had him. Hopefully he'll run well."
Curtis was left to look for another jockey after freeing McCoy from his original obligation so that he could team up with Hennessy winner Triolo D'Alene, Nicky
Henderson's second string behind last year's winner and ante-post favourite Bobs Worth.
