Potterman will hopefully get his ground at Perth today
Plenty of water has been put on the track at Perth these last few days, but the picturesque Scottish course still has good ground for today’s terrific programme, so here’s hoping that Potterman can keep up the stable’s revival in their big staying handicap chase.
Potterman, for whom decent ground is a must, had luck on his side when he was awarded the bet 365 Gold Cup at Sandown after finishing an honourable third. But the handicapper only put him up a pound, so if he is in the same sort of form that he was on the Esher slopes who knows ……..
We also run Talkischeap, our bet365 Gold Cup hero from 2019, Things did not work out for him in the Grand National, but he will be happy to be back at Perth, where he won a point-to-point five years ago.
