Formscan By Gary Carson - HIDDEN CYCLONE has to give weight away to his rivals here but looks a classy prospect and should claim this if he is to go on to better things. He tired slightly on his return over an inadequate two miles at Naas and should have benefited from that outing. Connections think the world of the gelding, whose only defeat over fences came behind Sir Des Champs last season when he was reportedly not right. He has a bit to find on official ratings with Call The Police but looks open to plenty of improvement. Willie Mullins' charge sets a good standard and enjoyed a fine novice season last term, the highlight of which was a third-placed effort in the RSA Chase at Cheltenham. Colbert Station and Ninetieth Minute both proved to be decent novices last season but are more handicap material and look just a grade below the main two here. Tillahow battled well on his chase debut at Thurles but this is much harder now.
