Lady Buttons to thwart Buveur D'Air?

By Andrew Atkinson racing correspondent

LADY Buttons faces stiff competition at Newcastle on Saturday, where the going is heavy, in the Betfair Fighting Fifth Class 1, over 2 miles and 6 furlongs.

Trained by Philip Kirby, Lady Buttons lines up in the five horse field, against strongly fancied Buveur D’Air (4-11), Silver Streak (4-1), Cornerstone Lad (25-1) and rank outsider Nelson River (50-1).

Lady Buttons (8-1) who won at Wetherby in soft going this month, will go head to head with Nicky Henderson trained Buveur D’Air, ridden  by Barry Geraghty, a winner at Punchestown over 2m in May and at Sandown in February.
