Verdict

It's hard to confidently rule out many of these. Risky Business could be vulnerable to a less exposed rival while there should be plenty of market support for Midnight Fusion. However, it may pay to side with THING CALLED LOVE who makes plenty of appeal on the strength of a good latest effort.
