Cloone Springs has never come anywhere near replicating his close second to Klepht at Wexford last October though one bad mistake put him out of contention back there last time. This isn't the toughest of races with THESHOWISOVER only looking moderate so far though there's a good chance the latter will improve after just two starts over the bigger obstacles and he's given the nod. Ciarans Oscar showed enough over timber to suggest he can make a chaser and Troubled will have learnt from his one run over fences at Wexford.
