Priors Gold completed a double over hurdles in early summer but appears to have gone off the boil. GOLAN GO is 7lb higher than when scoring over the trip at Wexford but continues in good form and looks ready to gain the third success of his career. Walter De La Mare's two victories have come over 1m2f on soft ground but he ran reasonably well over this trip at Bellewstown a couple of weeks ago when the ground was quick. Celestial Prospect looked in need of further when plodding on at one pace over 1m2f at Clonmel so he could prove a threat.
