Trainer Dan O’Sullivan will delay Tuscan Fire’s return to the jumps with the gelding to run in the Warrnambool Cup.

Tuscan Fire has been nominated for the Galleywood Hurdle (3200m) at Warrnambool on Wednesday but will instead run in Thursday’s 2350m Cup.

With the movement of jumps races away from Sandown because of renovations to the racing surface, O’Sullivan said Tuscan Fire would make his return to jumping in the Australian Hurdle at Ballarat on May 31.

“With the Australian Hurdle going to Ballarat I’ve got that up my sleeve,” O’Sullivan said.

“Take away the hype of the Warrnambool carnival, I’m better off having a crack at the Cup and then keeping him for the Australian Hurdle.”

Tuscan Fire last raced over jumps when he finished fourth in a hurdle race at Bendigo in June 2012.

The following year he won the Mornington Cup which guaranteed him a start in the Caulfield Cup in which he finished 12th behind Fawkner.

Tuscan Fire has been winless since scoring at Flemington in August 2013 but has been racing consistently and was a last-start nose second to Tall Ships in the Terang Cup on April 19.

“He was good the other day with the jar out out of the track,” O’Sullivan said.

“He’s going to meet Tall Ships better at the handicap and it’s probably not as strong a Warrnambool Cup that I have seen recently as there’s been a lot of staying races spread out over a long time.

“Some have gone to Sydney, some went to the Adelaide Cup and there’s still the Andrew Ramsden to come in Melbourne.
