Verdict

Gordon Elliott won this last year and TORN ASUNDER can repeat the process despite disappointing when favourite at Navan. His earlier run behind Inish Island pointed to his chances that day but he appeared to find the 2m7f on testing ground just too far so today's trip should prove ideal. The lightly raced Share Wood looks a threat though the dual point-to-point winner would probably prefer further and his future lies over fences. Carsonstown Bridge has shown a decent level of form though an absence since March won't aid his cause and though Los Amigos looked a promising type in bumpers he's been beaten a long way in both starts over hurdles. Tyrone Tiger looks best of the remainder though punters would need to forgive a poor run when favourite at Cork.
