Easy for Barney as he lands the bets
Barneys Honour has Chestnut Charlie beaten at Navan
Those that backed the former Philip Rothwell (won a point-to-point and three races for him, all at Fairyhouse) inmate from 7/1 last night into 3/1 favourite never really had much grounds for concern.
Now a nine-year-old, the City Honours gelding took it up two out on the way to an easy four length victory over Chestnut Charlie.
Elliott explained: "He had a leg and he was off for a while. On his first run back at Christmas he ran well. I thought he wouldn't be too far away today.
"The owner was at an engagement party last night and he couldn't make it today."
