BARNEYS HONOUR continues to go well over hurdles and fences and is slightly better handicapped over the smaller obstacles. He may well be suited by this longer trip after his second to Mount Colah at Navan and Jane Mangan's claim will be a bonus. He's handed the vote though Wicklow Lad is still reasonably treated despite a 7lb rise for his Naas victory and the veteran Moving On proved he was no back number with an easy victory over 2m6f at Thurles, though that was in January. Might Be Magic could have his close second to Rafi De Triana boosted by the winner earlier and Zekarya is much better than he showed over fences last time.
