Three weeks after a 4th place finish in the Richelieu Guineas, Potomac was sent out odds-on favourite for the Cape Derby, firming to 6/10 before the off.  A light drizzle had softened the going and although it was a slowish run race and he beat little of consequence, Potomac had the field at his mercy.  Sitting just off the pace until they turned into the straight, he sprinted away to win by 7 lengths.
