Barbatos ran out a ready winner of the opener at Cheltenham on New Year's Day and StanJames.com have reacted by cutting him from 33/1 to 16/1 for the Neptune Investment Hurdle at the Festival.
StanJames.com spokesman Rory Jiwani says, "Barbatos stayed the trip very well and his win gives a real nod to Fingal Bay who has twice beaten him comfortably this term.
"We've cut Ian Williams' six-year-old to 16/1 with Fingal Bay 4/1 favourite for the Neptune after he kept up his unbeaten record in workmanlike fashion at Newbury yesterday."
