Can I benefit from the prior registration during a sunrise period offered by a new gTLD for a trademark which is not registered with the Clearinghouse?

No, it is not possible to register a domain name matching your trademark during a Sunrise period without the SMD file (Signed Mark Data). This file provided to you by the Clearinghouse once your trademark record has been verified.
