Verdict

Goal has a penalty to carry as he's the only one of these to have won on the Flat and he hasn't shown much over hurdles. CLOONE SPRINGS was sent chasing last autumn and produced one good effort but reverted to hurdles at Wexford last month with decent run over the minimum trip and this should be more to his liking. He's given the nod as he holds Subtitle on that last run though Up Sluggarh would be a threat if able to repeat his good second to Rogue Angel at Galway in October.
