The Star Sports English Derby 1-2, Dorotas Wildcat and Droopys Verve avoided each other in the first round of the MSCM Eclipse which gets underway at Nottingham on Monday.

It is a high quality entry which includes  a string of other big race winners including Droopys Trapper (William Hill Puppy Plate), Donation (Lowther ), Blue Trooper (Puppy Classic) and Droopys Trawler (Northern Puppy Derby).
