Verdict

NO DEAL won a Carlisle bumper by six lengths last month on his first start for Lucinda Russell. A points winner in Ireland, the switch to hurdles should suit and he looks the one to be on here. Native Court is also a winner between the flags but is more exposed than the selection while The Shrimp, yet another successful in the point-to-point arena, was tailed off on his debut under Rules at Kelso. Talkin Sence hasn't raced since May but is still preferred to Stop On of the others.
