Cloone Springs has never won a race and though producing a couple of decent efforts over fences he was beaten a long way at Galway last time. Goodoldhonkytonk makes her debut over fences and her allowance will be a help. She beat a big field of maiden hurdlers at Clonmel when there was some give in the ground and didn't appreciate fast going at Limerick last time. She'll prove a threat but RAAJIH has to be the selection. Gordon Elliott's grey has come up against some promising types in his seven starts over fences and though beaten a long way by Sizing Machine at Kilbeggan on Sunday he's unlikely to run into one as good here. Western Man has been racing on ground too quick and may do best of the remainder.
