22/1

Veteran; returned to the care of Jennie Candlish to win back-to-back races in March, including when beating Arizona Bound by 3L here (over fences - 3m, heavy); 7lb higher for seasonal reappearance.

Quirky and generally reserves his very best for Carlisle, particularly effective when the mud is flying in all directions; outpaced when third to the well-supported Metro Boulet Dodo (2m4f) at Carlisle a fortnight ago.

11/8

An exceptionally rare runner at Hexham for HM The Queen; made all (kept on willingly for pressure) when striking at the third attempt over hurdles last week (Wetherby 2m5½f, soft); unpenalised (is due an 8lb rise); a major player.

3/1

Things didn't go to plan over fences and truthfully he's struggled overall since a most productive spell in late 2017 (four wins); handicapped to have a say (on ground which he handles) if fully rejuvenated for the summer break.

911-6OR: 91BFCD
9/1

Won twice over C&D last season on heavy ground; 3lb higher than when justifying favouritism (11-10f) under this rider here in March; must be given plenty of respect on seasonal reappearance; market a helpful guide.

511-3OR: 88
66/1

14-race maiden; any distant glimmers of ability appear to have evaporated; finished behind Pistol latest (was never involved); is difficult to fancy despite a plunging handicap mark - down 22lb since August.

Better known as a chaser; mildly progressive last season winning twice over 3m under very testing conditions (here and at Ayr); fell in the race won by The Horsechesnut here in March; is rated 10lb lower over hurdles than fences.

13/2

Eight-race maiden; displayed a whiff of ability when third to Kalaharry over C&D last December; subsequent efforts were excusable (stable had a virus); 5lb lower on first start in Rose Dobbin's own silks (ex Straightline Bloodstock).

10/1

Nine-race maiden; was beaten by a stablemate of Dontdelay (It's All About Me) on his most recent hurdles outing (over C&D in June); comfortably out of his depth over fences on sole subsequent start; first run for 146 days.

20/1

Rated 16lb higher when winning over C&D in June 2018 - beat the Micky Hammond trained Christmas Twenty by a head; entirely downhill since, albeit does reappear from wind surgery; is difficult to enthuse over.

Betting

Forecast

No Trumps (11/8), Triopas (3/1), Espoir Moriviere (13/2), Dontdelay (9/1), Cudgel (10/1), Pistol (14/1), Broadway Belle (20/1), The Horsechesnut (22/1), Mcginty's Dream (25/1), Cryogenics (66/1)

Verdict

Stamina reserves are the thorny issue for the recent Wetherby scorer NO TRUMPS, but as a lightly raced mare she's given the benefit of the doubt until more pertinent evidence becomes available. She proved her well-being on testing ground at Wetherby last week and assuming that she does stay, her chance is an obvious one racing from an identical handicap mark (due a future 8lb rise). For those seeking a better priced each-way alternative, the competitively handicapped Triopas offers an avenue which is potentially worth exploring.
