Time For Harry is a half-brother to a couple of winners in Italy and is worth noting on his belated debut, but BILLY BUTTONS is the one to beat if anywhere near his best on his return to action. He was just denied victory at this track before an even better effort when second in a higher grade handicap at Goodwood in September. Ctappers looks to be treading water at present and was placed yet again on his latest start at Wolverhampton, though he still makes more appeal than jumper Total Obsession and Apassionforfashion, who have yet to show any worthwhile form.
