No hiding Hanlon's confidence

Trainer Shark Hanlon believes a fully-fit Hidden Cyclone will be difficult to peg back at Galway on Tuesday.

The Grade Two-winning eight-year-old has not been seen since he fell in the Red Mills Chase at Navan in February, but returns to the fray in the Latin Quarter Chase.

Hanlon opted to swerve Wednesday's Galway Plate with Hidden Cyclone, and is confident he has acted in the best interests of the horse.

"He's in super form. He hasn't had a run for six months and this seemed a good race to start him back," said the County Carlow handler.

"I'd have loved to have run him in the Plate, but it's quite a rough race and we have to do what's right for our lad.

"This is still a very valuable race in its own right, though, and that's why there's such a competitive field.

"But if our lad can run to anywhere near his best form, they'll all have to go some to stop him."

Hidden Cyclone takes on five rivals, including the hat-trick-seeking duo of Rathlin and Dantes King.

Woolcombe Folly is an interesting entry for Paul Nicholls and Ditcheat's former stable jockey, Ruby Walsh. The hardy 10-year-old was a fine runner-up on his last start in the Summer Plate at Market Rasen a week and a half ago.
