7/2

Little show in Irish points but was gambled on and made a winning start under Rules in 12-runner novice here (19.2f) last month. That form has taken a few knocks since but he's entitled to progress.

Modest on Flat (stays 1¼m) and well held in 2 novice hurdles.

2/1

Has still yet to win a race in either code but has shown fairly useful form, including when second in a first-time visor in 16.6f handicap at Market Rasen 27 days ago. Leading claims.

10/3

Bumper winner/fair hurdler who didn't see things out thoroughly upped in trip after 7 months off when third in slowly-run Newton Abbot novice (21.6f) 22 days ago. Back down in trip.

20/1

Runner-up on second of 2 starts in Irish points and displayed ability when fourth in a Catterick bumper on debut. Well held at Huntingdon next time but is better judged on his Catterick run.

11/4

Belied market weakness fitted with a hood to make it third time lucky in bumpers in 8-runner event over C&D on yard debut/reappearance last month, dictating. Ought to have a future over hurdles.

50/1

Modest in bumpers and has run to only a similar level in a pair of Southwell novice hurdles, though not knocked about. Handicaps presumably up after this.

Betting

Forecast

Escapability (2/1), Some Might Say (11/4), Floating Rock (10/3), Shantou Master (7/2), Minella Beauty (20/1), The Lion Queen (50/1), Amaretto (80/1), Ethandexter (300/1), Maid Of Camelot (300/1)

Verdict

There's no doubt SOME MIGHT SAY was seen to good effect when opening her account in bumpers over C&D last month, but she's bred to take to obstacles and in a race where it is easy enough to pick holes in those with hurdling form, she could be worth siding with. Escapability ran up to his best in a first-time visor at Market Rasen last time and is feared most.

  2. ESCAPABILITY (IRE)
