Verdict

Paul Nicholls looks to have found a nice opportunity for WOOLCOMBE FOLLY, who has finished runner-up three times in succession, conceding lumps of weight each time. The race conditions suit him and he can gain his first success since 2010. Rathlin is in the form of his life and has to be a threat after his demolition job at Punchestown where he jumped brilliantly. He'll be difficult to catch in that kind of mood and though Hidden Cyclone wasn't in the best of form when last seen earlier this year he goes well fresh as he showed when beating Foildubh at Naas in October. Dantes King has won over hurdles and fences at Perth this month but faces much tougher competition here.
