ENTRAPPING finished fourth at Lingfield in August and a repeat may be good enough to come out best of this lowly bunch. Scepticism was placed here early in the year and has been hurdling since while Rainbows And Roses may improve now handicapping for the first time. Penang Power's best effort was a fifth at Warwick on her penultimate start and My Claire made the frame over 7f at Beverley back in June. 8.05
