FWIW, I'm betting on Caytoniales or Glossopteridales, though I haven't spent much time looking into it.
     I only did a little more reading on this today, but I am still inclined to stick with Bennettitales as the most promising angiosperm sister group (from both a morphological perspective and a temporal perspective as well).  Caytoniales is my second choice (just as good temporally, but not quite as good morphologically).  Won't rule out Glossopteridales, Peltaspermales, or even Corystospermales, but they seem less likely to me.
