19:47 Towcester – Barntick Bear @ 6/5

Patrick Janssens is a man who knows how to train a Derby winner after his success in 2021 with Thorn Falcon and this lightly raced and powerful tracker is a big runner for the Derby crown this year.

He ran well to finish second in the prestigious Midlands Puppy Derby at Monmore over 480, this stiffer four-bend trip of 500m will suit perfectly and he is a strong selection to make a winning start to his Derby campaign.

Liz McNair's multiple big-race winner over six bends has been re-routed to the Derby after his semi-final elimination of the 3 Steps To Victory at Sheffield last weekend.
