In depth

Verdict

BLUE BUTTONS fell at Wincanton last month but had earlier run the useful Down Ace to a neck in a Listed contest over 2m1f here after winning at Exeter. She has to concede weight to all of her rivals but looks a class above them and should get back to winning ways. Buckboru was placed in a couple of bumpers but tried to run out on her hurdling debut and has a bit to prove now. Bumper winner Ifits A Fiddle has shown little so far over timber and it's difficult to make much of a case for the remainder.
