Verdict

Paddy The Stout and Personal Shopper have shown nothing to suggest they can get involved and though Hidden Future beat Cadspeed at Naas last month he has around a stone to find with the two principals. Dylan Ross started off in tremendous style over fences and beat subsequent RSA Chase winner Lord Windermere here in November. He hasn't done as well in his three later races which may just hand the initiative to RUPERT LAMB. His overall form isn't quite up to that of his main rival and he was an early faller at Leopardstown but he has real scope to do better and should also be suited by the less testing conditions.
