Timeform on Nonesuch

Lady Buttons - 14:40 Doncaster

Lady Buttons is proving very versatile, and has looked better than ever this season, completing a hat-trick in a listed chase over two and a half miles at this course last time. The switch back to timber isn't expected to cause too much of a concern here, so she is fancied to concede weight all round and continue her winning run. Irish Roe is better than she could show on her latest start and is feared most, ahead of Indefatigable.

Dingo Dollar - 15:15 Doncaster

Dingo Dollar travelled like one ahead of his mark for a long way in the Ladbrokes Trophy at Newbury last time, leaving the impression he is well up to winning a top-end handicap from his current mark and, back over slightly shorter, is fancied to enhance Alan King's good recent record in this race. Warriors Tale went close in this last year and looks primed for another bold bid after his Grand Sefton win. Willie Boy is on the up for his new yard and is also of interest tackling three miles for the first time.

Nonesuch - 16:25 Doncaster

Nonesuch cost plenty as a three-year-old, not surprising given her pedigree - half-sister to four winners, including useful hurdler/fairly useful chaser N'oublie Jamais - and made a very encouraging debut in a similar event at Ludlow last month, looking badly in need of the experience. She was ridden soon after halfway, and outpaced early in the straight before staying on and rallying close home. The extra two furlongs will be in her favour now and she is likely to benefit plenty for that initial experience. Hotter Than Hell would be a big threat if bouncing back to her debut form, with Redbridge Gold looking the other key player.
