Winning point-to-pointer TORN ASUNDER couldn't hold off Inish Island over this trip at Downpatrick earlier this month but the remainder were well beaten and compensation awaits. Carry Each Other, a dual winner between the flags, made his debut under Rules in a chase at Galway and showed up well. He'll like the heavy ground and stays well so looks the main threat though Francis Street has been making steady progress in point-to-points and won at Maralin last month and is another who will enjoy the conditions. Jamies Benefit was beaten a long way on his hurdling debut and may need another run.
