PRESS THE BUTTON impressed on his hurdling bow and may be up to scoring under a penalty. Tayarat is an obvious danger whilst Natural Action may be able to improve on his initial effort. Jim Boyle has enjoyed a decent week with his runners on the level and Press The Button is an above average recruit to hurdling with a Flat rating in the nineties. His class was evident over course and distance in August with victory only slightly spoilt by a mistake at the last but he can be forgiven that and is taken to follow up. Tayarat responded to the fitting of headgear to land the second race of his career at Plumpton where he gained a hardfought victory but he has had his limitations exposed and could struggle to contain a rival as classy as Press The Button. Amwell Brave looks to have place claims at best whilst one time Derby fancy William Hogarth will need to step up on the form that he's shown to date. Chalice Welcome is another that could challenge for the minors but she is thoroughly exposed unlike Natural Action who could step up on the form that he showed at Worcester. He'll need to though if he's to get within hailing distance of Press The Button.
