Cyclone in line for drop in tripHeadlines
Hidden Cyclone

Hidden Cyclone is likely to drop back in distance on his next assignment having struggled to see out three miles on his first outing in a Grade One chase in the Lexus last Friday.

The Shark Hanlon-trained gelding trailed home last of those that finished in the Lexus and is now likely to return to races over two and a half miles.

Hanlon said: "He has come out of the race well, he was just way too free.

"He was half running away with Andrew (McNamara) going down to the start.

"The plan was to settle him fourth or fifth but he couldn't do that as he was too free and he has unsurprisingly got very tired.

"In lesser company you can get away with it, but over three miles, in that ground and at that level, it's going to find you out.

"We'll come back to two and a half (miles) with him now. There is a race in Thurles, a race back at Leopardstown and the Red Mills Chase at Gowran.

"We'll stick to two and a half with him for now, until we can get him settled.

"He could go for the Ryanair Chase in Cheltenham, or, if we can get him to settle, we could still think about the Gold Cup."
