How to shoot high dropping clays?

I find chandelles difficult to shoot, mainly because they drop very fast. What is the technique to use in order to break them consistently?

I find them hard to hit, too.  Today I had a little luck by shooting even lower below them than I would expect to.  I think my Maxus Sporting shoots slightly above the barrel, so it's shooting high, anyway - meaning I have to compensate for that as well as the falling clay.  When I hit, I was following it down, then surpassed it even more, kept the gun moving, and fired with a longer lead than what felt "right".
