Third in the Bronze Cup at Ayr last season, the five-year-old had been without a win in six tries this term but put that right with a half-length success from Intisaab in the hands of Graham Gibbons.
The 22-1 winner could turn out quickly for this year's Ayr meeting.
Barron said: "He was touched off in a few good ones this year, and it's nice to get one. He (Gibbons) was cool and you need a bit of luck in these races now and again.
"If he comes home all right he could go to Ayr next week. I don't think he will get into the Gold Cup, so he may go for the Silver."
