«Best Ville Ben will run at the Charlie Hall and Lady Buttons will won in the final race she won last year. Everything has gone perfectly to plan so far, we have just got to keep it that way.
«Buttons can perform a very similar thing to last season – she will start off at Wetherby, then perhaps go to Newbury and go to Doncaster for those Listed races and the significant prize-money. We’ll see where we end up at the season’s end.
«For Best Ville, the plan was always to go to the Charlie Hall to begin with. We’ll see how he has on, but if he is competitive, he can always go to Newbury for the Hennessy (Ladbrokes Trophy).»
