Daryl Jacob believes Reve De Sivola has more than an outsider's chance in the Ladbrokes World Hurdle.

The jump jockey feels bookmakers are underestimating the triple Long Walk Hurdle winner by quoting him at a top-priced 25-1 for the three-mile championship at Cheltenham on 12 March.

The Nick Williams-trained 10-year-old has finished fourth and eighth of the last two runnings of the World Hurdle and ran a fine race when only going down by a neck, conceding 4lb, to Saphir De Rheu in the Cleeve Hurdle at Cheltenham last month.

"I'm looking forward to him. I can't believe he's a 25-1 chance," Jacob told At The Races.

"I know people say he hasn't got the best course record round Cheltenham, but you can't crab his form the last time when he was wrong at the weights with Saphir De Rheu and he's only gone down by a neck. That's a very good race and good form.

"He's more like a fourth or fifth favourite and that's how I'll be going there with that sort of confidence in him."
