Mr Carson has been a big disappointment so far and will need to get his act together to make inroads and Twist Of Fate looks to have more of a chance after his fine debut behind Railway Icon at Down Royal. Celerity Rules was in front of Mr Carson at Galway but looks moderate and though Cross Avenue should improve for his Punchestown Run he's mainly Flat-bred and could do with quicker ground. ROHAN'S PRIDE has been making steady progress and was a bit unfortunate not to finish much closer at Kilbeggan last time. That looks the best form on show and he's taken to open his account though a market check is advisable as there are some well-connected newcomers entered including Theatre Mill, who may prove best of them.
