Verdict

MR ROBINSON and Isthereadifference had a similar contest between them here over 2f further in mid-June and strictly on revised ratings, the runner-up has a strong claim to reverse placings and go one better in an equally modest affair. However, the winner that day created quite a good impression in landing his first success under Rules and could become a significantly better chaser than hurdler. He's still on a perfectly good mark for Rob Summers and Trevor Whelan has caught the eye on more than one occasion during the summer and is becoming an accomplished performer. It's hard to enthuse over the rest as they all appear out of form and Pure Anticipation is merely a token each-way choice.
