Barel Of Laughs won his first two starts over fences and returned to form in a tough handicap at Ffos Las in August. He should go well again despite a 5lb rise but Cloone Rocket hasn't had much experience over the bigger obstacles and may find a few of these too strong. He had Sicilian Secret close behind when scoring over 2m4f at Kilbeggan but the latter went back there a month ago to record his first success over fences and can reverse the form. Top-class point-to-pointer and hunter OUTLAW PETE is having his first start in a handicap and looks to have got in lightly. He had half-a-length to spare over the 134-rated Arabella Boy when receiving 2lb at Punchestown in April so on that form he looks to have been thrown in here off 114 and must be the selection, especially with his rider claiming 7lb. It took Bundle Of Fun 19 starts to get off the mark over fences but he could hardly have won any easier at Downpatrick though connections won't be happy with a 12lb rise.
