Srinagar Girl is making hard work of losing her maiden tag and the less exposed types could make life difficult for Sir Henry Cecil's filly in this. Suffice hasn't raced since June but went close when runner-up at Hamilton on that occasion and the third has won over hurdles since. He has every chance but MINORITY INTEREST finished second for Sir Michael Stoute in a much better maiden than this at Wolverhampton in September and is taken to make a winning start for his new yard. The remainder look up against it in this company.
