NORDIC DASH and POTENZA stay close to home and run at Newmarket tomorrow. NORDIC DASH will be our first 2 year old runner of the season. She runs in a 7 furlong fillies novice race, she is drawn 8 of the 11 runners and Hollie Doyle takes the ride. She is a nice straightforward filly who has done nothing wrong and we have been pleased with her work at home. It looks a typical Newmarket novice but we hope she will run a nice race and give us a pointer for the rest of the 2 year olds we have in the yard.
POTENZA has been in very good form at home since his win at Haydock and the more rain that falls for him the better. It is forecast but if it does happen to miss Newmarket then we would consider not running him. He is stepping up in trip from last time but he did run well over this distance for us last year and we have always thought he would stay at least 12 furlongs. He should have a good chance tomorrow.
