There's no stopping JOHN POTTS at present and he made it four wins on the bounce at Wolverhampton last month where he is virtually a standing dish. The handicapper may not have caught up with him yet and it will be interesting to see how he gets on away from his favourite track. Zafeen's Pearl will exploit any chinks in the selection's armour as she won here in December and is not out of this, while Dichoh has been threatening to get his head back in front at Lingfield recently. Eastern Gift makes most appeal of the remainder.
