PURE ANTICIPATION appeared to realise some improvement for the application of a visor, and with connections keeping faith with the headgear, we take Tim Vaughan's mare to go one better on this occasion. Always Bold is a previous winner at Uttoxeter and while better known as a soft ground performer, he has shown an aptitude for quick going in the past. Euro Farmer proved himself no back number with a convincing victory in a point-to-point at Whitfield. Barry Brennan's teenager should not be underestimated on his return to racing under Rules. Atriptomilan hasn't shown a great deal for current connections but is a winner between the flags in Ireland. Fitobust is another that wouldn't necessarily inspire on Rules form alone while Basford Ben could run well at a price if he has no ill effects for his recent Worcester spill.
