Verdict

Norfolk Sky won seven times on the Flat and she wasn't disgraced when sixth at Wincanton earlier in the month. She must have a chance in an ordinary maiden but SUDDEN WISH, placed at Lingfield and Fakenham before the turn of the year, won on the Polytrack at Kempton at the start of the month and gets the nod. Tiller Belle takes a big drop in distance and Sapphire Moon may also find this too sharp but useful bumper horse Midnight Minx could figure if fully wound up for her first run since October.
