There's enough stamina in the pedigree of SUFFICE to suggest he'll appreciate the longer trip having gone close over a mile at Nottingham on his debut. Normal improvement should see him off the mark in this company. Rosselli posted a better effort at Ripon last time and makes more appeal than Outback, who has yet to reproduce last year's best form in Ireland for new connections. The remainder look to have plenty to find though newcomer Lochluichart has a couple of winning relatives and could go well.
