Verdict

LUKE'S BENEFIT is taking exactly the same route as a year ago when, following his victory at Punchestown on New Year's Eve, he came here to win this. He's 8lb higher this time but Brian Cawley can use his 7lb claim and a follow-up is on the cards. Uncle Tom Cobley finished runner-up a year ago and runs from the same mark and though Rubert hasn't progressed as expected there was nothing wrong with his second to Jacksonslady on St Stephens Day when Lead Kindly Light was badly impeded and well beaten. Ros Brin is still a novice and defied an early mistake to score at Clonmel. She's learning with every run and still looks capable of better than today's handicap mark. Klepht and Quiet Thought are others with chances in an open contest.
