Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - If course and distance hurdle winner, Pass The Hat, is fancied in the market, then he'd be the selection. However, with the possibility of him needing this first handicap outing for the experience, it might be best to look elsewhere. Elsewhere in this case basically means BARNEYS HONOUR. A 14Ib penalty for a Navan hurdling success, stopped this fellow in his tracks on Thyestes Day at Gowran. However, a mark of 102 in this sphere, equates to just a postage-stamp of nine stone twelve here, suggesting strongly that he'll be hard to beat. The rest could well be playing for placings.
