The first entries for the upcoming Boylesports Derby were confirmed yesterday afternoon and while there have been only eight thus far, outside the trial take winners, there is one notable name amongst the group.

Droopys Edison hasn’t been seen in public since finishing fifth in the Con & Annie Kirby Memorial in late April but he recent trialed very well around Dundalk and subsequently came in for plenty of support with sponsors Boylesports for Derby success.

The Robert Gleeson trained star, who ran up the Juvenile Classic at Tralee earlier in the year, posted 21.07 in a recent sprint spin around Dundalk suggesting he is ready to challenge for the blue riband. 

Other notable entries include Crokers Spirit, who missed last year’s Derby through injury, and the very talented Mustang Jet. Owners and trainers are reminded to get their entries in as early as possible. Those with runners on Saturday, and there are plenty with Derby credentials, should consider taking the option to complete their entry on the night.
