Modification to the application of the American Cyanamid Principles?

The Court of appeal held in Global Gaming Ventures (Group) Ltd v Global Gaming Ventures (Holdings) Ltd [2018] EWCA Civ 68, that the application of the American Cyanamid principles might need to be modified in cases where an injunction was the entirety of the relief sought in the action. In such circumstances it was permissible for the court to consider the degree of likelihood of the applicant succeeding in its claim at trial when weighing the balance of convenience.
