Formscan By Gary Carson - TORN ASUNDER drops back in trip here having just faded out of it in the closing stages at Navan last time and can get off the mark. He was sent off a short-price favourite then but after leading early in the straight he had no answer when headed before the last. As a former point-to-pointer he would have been expected to stay well but this shorter trip may just prove the key now. Share Wood bumped into a smart sort in Seefood at Fairyhouse on his last start and it was still a decent effort to fill the runner-up spot. This looks easier now and he could go close. Carsonstown Bridge produced a couple of decent placed efforts at Downpatrick in the spring but is probably best watched on his return while Los Amigos hasn't been disgraced in a couple of decent maidens and looks to have place prospects now.
