Winning hurdler JACK BENE was placed three times over fences in Ireland last season and has also finished second in a couple of point-to-points. This looks a good opportunity to make a winning reappearance though the consistent Earl Grez will no doubt make a race of it again. It's a worry, however, that the latter has yet to win in 22 starts under Rules. Swallows Delight also struggles to get his head in front while the once-useful Mister Chancer appears to be regressing at a rate of knots.
