Verdict

BARNEY DWAN finished runner-up in a competitive event over this distance at Cheltenham last month. Only an impressive Irish raider was able to defeat the selection on that occasion and he can take this competitive opener here. Of his rivals No Hassle Hoff stays this trip well having finished runner-up over an extended 3m on his penultimate outing and is likely to be held up for a late run here while No Comment can claim third on just his second outing in handicap company.
  1. Barney Dwan
  2. No Hassle Hoff
