Present Potential got off the mark under Rules over course and distance earlier this month but now has a penalty to carry and has to give 11lb to FRUIT FAYRE. Sheila Crowe's mare has been going from strength-to-strength between the flags and probably has more scope than any of her rivals. Rosie Du Berlais was still in touch when falling at Sedgefield last time and looks the pick of the remainder.
