It's difficult to make a strong case for any of these but SUITSUS wasn't beaten far in a maiden at Salisbury when attempting to give 5lb to Munfallet, rated 77. Peter Makin's charge was well supported on that occasion and may come good back in a handicap. Margrets Gift usually finds one too good and dual Fibresand winner Shades Of Silk has been raised a further 4lb for finishing second at Nottingham. Injaz, Spirit Of Alsace and Disclosure are others to consider.
