I'm fine calling Bailey III+, but that just means that everything else he has run is Class II at best.
Lower Narrows at 1.5 is much much slower than Bailey at normal flows (not this <200 nonsense that people are talking about). But if you are comfortable on lowers its not unreasonable to think you could be fine on Bailey. If you are feeling confident get an experienced crew and fire it up. If you have doubts wait. Bailey is one of the few runs you can count on having water every year.
My advice, run as much class III as you are willing to drive to as this season comes to a close. Get out early next spring, get on some runs with water in them and you'll easily be able to knock off Bailey and Gore next summer.
