Round 3 - Heat 2
A Liam Dowling 1-2 and Irish 1-2-3 with 2021 finalist Ballymac Fairone (11-10F), owned by Dowling himself, making all to beat strong-finishing kennelmate Ballymac Belvult by three lengths in 29.54sec (-20). Priceless Jet was third having just been pipped in a photo for second.
Round 3 - Heat 3
Signet Goofy (11-4), trained by John Mullins for Lee Calcutt and Chris Waters, maintained his unbeaten record in the competition with another front-running victory. Having gone clear, he came back late on but held off Romeo Magico and Faughan Rebel, who came from way back, in 29.55sec (-20).
Round 3 - Heat 4
Singalong Sally (15-8F) produced her most convincing run of the Derby with a tremendous all-round display. Trained by Pat Buckley for Gilbert Anderson, she was always front rank and powered past Greyhound of the Year Signet Ace to assert at the third bend for a near-three lengths win in 29.34sec (-10). Seamus Cahill's Derrinasafa Boss just held an unlucky Glengar Scholar for the third qualifying position. Reigning champion Thorn Falcon also departed having been stopped in his run at three-quarters.
Round 3 - Heat 5
A third Irish victory of the night with Peter Cronin's Cape Cloud (3-1), owned by the Leamybrien Syndicate, always in control. Mickys Barrett tracked cleverly round the first couple of bends to chase home the 29.38sec (-10) winner at just under two lengths distance with Make Noise through in third for Seamus Cahill.
Round 3 - Heat 6
One for the guv'nor with the Diane Henry-trained Savana Beau (14-1), owned by Towcester promoter Kevin Boothby, coming from way off the pace to just prevail in a three-way photo over Lautaro and Signet Denver, who had looked to have the race between them on the run-in. The winning time was 29.55sec (-10).
Round 3 - Heat 7
More brilliance from ante-post favourite Ballinabola Ed (8-13F) with the Pat Buckley-trained, Brendan Murphy-owned star producing the run of the round. A 4.14sec sectional was his best of the event and saw him lead up then power away to beat Aussie Captain by almost five lengths in a superb 29.12sec (-10) with Buckley's Bobsleigh Dream through in third.
Round 3 - Heat 8
A near-perfect night for Seamus Cahill was rounded off by Global Vision (7-2) completing a bookend double for the Hove trainer meaning that all four of his runners on the night qualified. The winner, owned by Alf Ashe and Shaun Gresham, was slowly away but paced up fast to the bend and barged round in front at that point. He went on to beat strong-running Hello Hammond by two lengths in 29.52sec (-10) with Coppice Fox third.
