This was won by Flemenstar last year and it would be no shock if TWINLIGHT proved as effective as Peter Casey's star in time. Although beaten by Buckers Bridge in a Grade 2 at Navan last month, he gave the winner 6lb and a real fright and is probably still progressing. Dedigout started favourite that day, despite a moderate earlier effort at Leopardstown, but again disappointed. There's nothing to suggest he can reverse the form on the same terms but You Must Know Me would be a threat if able to recapture the form shown when narrowly beaten by Boston Bob on his chasing debut at Navan. Whodoyouthink is better over hurdles and would prefer quicker ground.
