UNDULATION was the star of the show at Towcester's special Star Sports/TRC Derby trials session when clocking a superb 28.83sec (normal) over the 500m Classic course.

Brendan Matthews' recent Easter Cup finalist Undulation is no stranger to the track having won the very first heat in last year's English Derby plus a heat of the Puppy Derby the previous December but this was the first time she had dipped under 29sec.

Matthews' Puppy Oaks runner-up Rushy Meadows went round in 29.25sec with his Kirby Memorial second Merits Inclusion posting 29.38sec.

Kevin Hutton's recent intake Antigua Walt (ex-Ballymac Walt) set the 270m sprint standard in 15.58sec with Patrick Janssens' 2023 Derby runner-up Romeo Command clocking 15.78sec and his Monmore Puppy Derby second Barntick Bear 29.06sec over 500m.

Rick Holloway's Scaglietti clocked 29.19sec, while Michelle Brown's Lemming Force had impressed at Monday's pre-meeting trial session when recording 29.28sec (normal) for 500m.
