Star Sports/TRC English Derby trial stakes - Sunday 5th May


GRAHAM HOLLAND was utterly dominant as he landed a near-18/1 five-timer in the latest batch of Star Sports/TRC Derby trials stakes over 500m at Towcester.

Only the eclipse of Bockos Crystal, who faded behind John Mullins' impressive Wrighty (28.93sec, normal) in the last of the six trial stakes, prevented a clean sweep for dual Derby-winning trainer Holland.

His Juvenile winner Faypoint Harvey was fastest on the day with a 28.85sec victory, while first-up Romeo Steel and returning Irish Derby champion The Other Kobe also broke the 29sec barrier with identical 28.97sec efforts.

Holland's other winners were Faypoint Susie (29.06sec) and High Trend (29.07sec) while there was one notable run away from the trial stakes when Richard Rees's Kilara Roberto took a maiden in 29.22sec.
