Twm - have a look at this site http://www.gardenfocused.co.uk/vegetable/potatoes/variety-desiree.php
for every variety (in the drop down box) there's a graph of various disease resistance etc. You should be able to select a variety suitable for you from there.
I don't grow potatoes any more, but I always liked Desirée - however my allotment was on improved clay
