A 10lb rise will make life tougher for Dark And Dangerous, especially as the form of that victory has not worked out very well. That said, he did it very well and the first-time blinkers appeared to bring about significant improvement in the nine-year-old. NAFAATH arrives here just 1lb higher in the ratings than when successful at Uttoxeter back in October and this admirable veteran should be thereabouts once again today. Beeno remains comparatively unexposed and any market support for him would have to be noted.
LADY BUTTONS shaped with a lot more encouragement here a fortnight ago and she remains well handicapped from her days in bumpers which included a narrow defeat in a listed event at Aintree. She could be the way to go from Beeno and Copt Hill.
