No Trimmings bounced back to form with the help of a 10lb claimer over a mile at Dundalk recently and should stay this longer trip. Sunset Boulevard also produced a much better effort when third over 1m4f at Kempton last time and looks likely to make his presence felt. However, VINCES has registered all four victories to date over this C&D and, now 5lb lower than his last winning mark, Tim McCarthy's gelding looks ready to strike. Sheila's Bond makes most appeal of the remainder.
