Verdict

Several of these have produced their best efforts on this track but all will need to go some to prevent BARNEYS HONOUR from repeating Saturday's Navan success. A recent acquisition for Gordon Elliott, he reverted to fences on a winning mark and made no mistake so a 6lb penalty should have little effect here. Breeze With Ease has been hurdling and looks better handicapped over the smaller obstacles but Popaflora would have a chance if repeating the form shown when scoring at Punchestown in January. Deputy Consort had some reasonable form in 2011 and a recent run between the flags should have put him straight while Coolking, another winning point-to-pointer, ran a bit better at Thurles last time.
