Verdict

HIDDEN CYCLONE impressed in making it three out of four over hurdles with his only defeat coming in a Grade One contest over two miles behind First Lieutenant and Zaidpour. He had looked on that occasion as though he would be suited by a step up in trip and he duly kept on well to the line. He had made the running here last time but Andrew McNamara originally attempted to settle him in behind the leaders but abandoned that after four flights with his mount pulling for his head all the time. He pulled clear between the last two flights and had enough left in the tank to pick up again after making a hash of the last which was his only real mistake of the contest. He reportedly needs soft ground and is regarded as a chaser in the making so connections may not overface him this season. Ballyhaunis ran respectably on this step up in class to make ground into second from the rear although he could make no impression after the last; he made a number of small mistakes. Si C'Etait Vrai had run well in a bumper and when winning a maiden hurdle but had fallen before the race got underway at this level last time. He was readily outpaced having raced prominently but may have fared better with a stronger gallop; his future also lies over fences. Fully Funded had taken the field along until Hidden Cyclone took over and only kept on at the one pace. Carloswayback came under pressure as the pace quickened on the turn for home, he was unable to respond and allowed to come home in his own time.
