POTENZA, a recent purchase from Doncaster sales, makes his debut for us at Pontefract tomorrow in a 12 furlong handicap. He was tried over this trip for the first time in his last run when he finished second and the winner has gone on to win again so the form has worked out well. It is a 3 year old only handicap and there are only 10 runners, it looks an ideal race for him. We have been very pleased with him since he arrived and he has been working well at home. We know he likes cut in the ground but the persistent rain is a concern and if the ground does become atrocious then we will consider pulling him out. We will make a final decision in the morning.
