ePub/Kobo Touch: determine which page ePub opens on?

Does anyone know how to manually set which page an ePub (viewed on a Kobo) opens to upon first reading? For the most part, my converted books are opening to the first page of the first chapter (which I like), but I have a few books that are opening to the last page.

Anyone know how to fix this (either in Calibre, or manually editing the exploded ePub)?

Thanks,
k.

Use the T (Tweak EPUB) key to look at the NCX files of the good and bad to see what is different . Look at Play order. Look for a 'start'
