Slew Charm was fortunate to win at Downpatrick as Hold Em Cowboy would have won easily but for tipping up. But the latter has gained compensation so the form should stand up. TREAT YOURSELF was having just his fourth start over fences when narrowly beaten by the in-form Luke's Benefit at Naas and Arthur Moore's dual hurdles winner can go one better. Character Actor wasn't far behind in that latter race and should get involved but Golden Ticket had every chance and looks held. Barney's Honour is 21lb higher than his last winning mark over fences while The Way We Were looks held on a line through Luke's Benefit. Heavenly Way probably ran his best race over fences at Naas last week though it wasn't much of a contest.
