Cloone Springs has shown a bit of promise over fences but has looked very moderate over hurdles while Lady Boulea, a winning point-to-pointer, has done nothing so far to suggest she's up to winning this and may need further. OFF THE CHARTS made his belated debut here last month and really caught the eye, staying on nicely behind Security Breach when the race was all over. That will have brought him on and he's given the nod though if Green Dragon gets a run from his reserve berth he is definitely one to keep on the right side. Emily Gray may do best of the remainder.
