It was soft ground at this track when DARK LEOPARD made his debut. He just failed to catch the winner on that occasion but can go one better with normal progress. Potentate has found only one too good in both starts on the Polytrack and will figure if handling the surface, while the last comment also applies to Master Of Suspense, a promising third on his debut at Newmarket. G Force is out of a prolific mare and makes most appeal of the newcomers ahead of Colombian Roulette and Dutchartcollector.
