Sunday 14th April

KING COMBS, third behind litter-brother and kennelmate King Memphis in both the Puppy Derby and Olympic last year, sparkled in pre-meeting trials before racing at Towcester on Sunday.

Liz McNair's charge, who made a winning seasonal debut at Hove in early March, was first to go and set a standard nothing else could match when posting 29.02sec for the 500m course, clocking a 4.14sec sectional as he kept a middle course from trap two.

Next best was the 29.38sec recorded by John McGee's Irish raider Hawkfield Blue, while Paul Young's Aero Convey clocked 29.43sec off a best-of-session 4.12sec split.

McNair's King Sydney was best in the sprints over 270m, clocking 15.78sec despite a slight stumble at the start.
