Another tough handicap for punters to unravel. Jack Bene hasn't had much experience over fences and has gone up in the weights without winning while Quiet Thought has been raised 3lb for his defeat at Naas. Lookoutnow is in fine form having won very easily over hurdles at Tramore last time. He scored over fences at Downpatrick in November and with his rider claiming 3lb he looks certain to be in the shake-up. Castle Wings has only had five starts over fences and could just lack the experience for this and though Toomdeely ran really well at Limerick last time he's only won once in 18 starts over fences. KYLE'S TURN had several winners behind when carrying a big weight to victory at Down Royal in November and was in touch when brought down in the Paddy Power at Leopardstown last month. He's very useful in this grade and has the class to gain another victory.
