Torn Asunder is the obvious starting point for this having been placed in three of his five starts since the turn of the year. Fast ground proved no problem when second at Downpatrick last month. But the O'Brady team may be in for a quick double as the four-year-old SHABRA'S BERTOLINI has a chance with his allowance and a 7lb claimer on board. He'll need to be ridden with more restraint than well beaten over this trip at Roscommon last time but the quicker going will help him get home. Deal Done returns from a break and Flycorn has been off even longer while Healys Bar seems to have lost the plot.
