Verdict

There are question marks hanging over most of these and the market should be monitored closely. Bollin Judith has every chance on her close-up fourth to Dormouse at Taunton but STRONGLY SUGGESTED was running well off higher marks last spring and this probably isn't as competitive as recent tests. He may well be good enough to open his account with the quirky Sacrilege reverting back to the dark side at Leicester last month. Petit Ecuyer has struggled since scoring here in November and Adrenalin Flight lacks a recent outing. Rosoff is better known as a chaser and may get outpaced by a few of these, though doesn't appear badly handicapped.
