Verdict

No To Trident was a hot favourite at Ffos Las last week but blundered and unseated his rider before halfway. He'll be fancied to gain compensation but hasn't won since 2008 and is taken on with JAWHARY. Capable of running well fresh, Robert Walford's charge will enjoy the good ground and reappears on a decent mark. Party Palace has place prospects again but Cash Injection turned in a shocker on his last run over hurdles and has been well beaten twice on the all-weather since. Exeter fourth Tail of The Bank may be best of the rest.
