Verdict

BARNEY DWAN ran well when finishing fourth on handicap debut at Cheltenham last month and he is taken to register his third victory over fences in this handicap chase. The selection should appreciate the better ground forecast today and he can see off Progress Drive who was a C&D winner back in February. Ballycrystal broke his maiden over fences on his most recent appearance and he can claim third on his first outing in handicaps while Mr Mix is another consider here.
  1. Barney Dwan
