Hidden Cyclone looks set to continue his education over fences at Leopardstown on Saturday week.

His trainer John 'Shark' Hanlon is keen to give his stable star more experience of the Dublin track with the aim of returning there for a Grade One next month.

Hidden Cyclone won five out of six over hurdles and made a very impressive debut over fences over Christmas.

"We're going for a Grade Two at Leopardstown (Boylesports.com - Bet On Your Mobile Novice Chase) in a couple of weeks," said Hanlon on At The Races.

"The idea is we started him over fences at Leopardstown and we want to go back for a Grade One (Dr PJ Moriarty) a month later so we may as well stay there.

"He was brilliant on his debut and he'll definitely improve.

"Andrew (McNamara) couldn't believe how well he was going turning in against some very good horses."
