Barney Dwan handicapped to strike in Grimthorpe Chase​

Barney Dwan has become well-treated and looks decent value at 6/1 in the Grimthorpe Chase at Doncaster today (3.35)​ ​ This nine-year-old, who hails from the in-form yard of Fergal O’Brien, ​ finished a fine second of 24 to the very smart and current Gold Cup favourite Presenting Percy in the Pertemps Network Final at the 2017 Cheltenham Festival and won two of his six starts over fences last season.​ ​ In the second of those, he readily beat Alzammaar by five lengths in a novice chase at Musselburgh off an official rating of 145. Barney Dwan went on to run a blinder in his hat-trick bid when an 11 1/2 lengths fourth of 19 to Mister Whitaker in the Listed 2m 4f Close Brothers Novices’ Handicap Chase at the Cheltenham Festival off a mark of 143.​ ​ The form of that race is strong and reads really well in relation to this lower grade class 2 contest. Barney Dwan is able to race in it off 3lb lower, so that makes him look weighted to go in again at any time. ​ ​ Barney Dwan also comes into the race having shaped well two starts back when third of 12 to Yala Enki at Bangor and can be forgiven his last effort when a distant third to Glen Rocco at Kempton as he got badly hampered and virtually brought to a standstill at a crucial stage.​ ​ On the pick of his form Barney Dwan should be well up to winning a race of this nature off his current rating of 140. ​

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts win Barney Dwan (6/1 generally available – use BOG firms)
