Fayes Jet is given the vote to land the final of the Ladbrokes Kent Derby over 480 metres at Central Park on Sunday.
Stuart Maplesden’s runner is in the form of his career having won four of his last five races, all at the Sittingbourne venue.
The son of Aero Majestic was an easy winner in the first round and last week clocked the fastest time of the semi-finals when making all to beat Camps Star by five lengths in 28.76sec.
He has a good pitch on the fence to work from, whereas his main rival Bockos Doomie is poorly draw in three.
Bockos Doomie will go off favourite for the race. Patrick Janssens has won nine of his 13 races and only ever tasted defeat at Nottingham.
Last week he made all the running to hold Lenson John by two lengths in 28.82sec having been well clear at halfway.
The son of Droopys Jet is a dog that loves the inside rail so cannot afford any lapses at the start. Connections hope he can turn the bend in a handy position and then turn on the power down the far side.
Kevin Hutton’s Ballymac Osby was the other semi-final winner. He was soon clear to beat Forest Alan by almost two lengths in 29.25sec. The son of Kinloch Brae prefers the inside and his draw in five looks tricky.
Forest Alan is the only seed runner in the race in trap six. Seamus Cahill’s dog was sidelines for a few months and looks to be getting better with each run and is one of the stronger finishers in the contest.
Lenson John has belied big odds twice to get to the final. Last week he ran a blinder to keep Bockos Doomie to two lengths and will have strong local support.
The line-up is completed by Camps Star. The son of Scolari Me Daddy hasn’t won a round so far but his trainer pulled off a shock in the recent Romford Puppy Cup and can lightning strike twice?
