Barclays auto CLI at 1 year while carrying a balance?

I'm coming up to my 1-year anniversary with Barclays, and am carrying a balance after using one of their balance-transfer checks. I received an auto CLI at 6 months from $1100 to $2200, and in the last 6 months I've made big purchases and paid in full until using this balance-transfer check. I was wondering if carrying this balance ($1500) would hinder my chances of getting an auto CLI when I hit the 1-year mark this month?
