This talented son of Droopys Sydney – Palermo dug deep to win his semi-final heat in 29.47 for trainer Peter Cronin, with The Other Kobe half a length back in second.
Kildare has been cut into 6/4 from 11/4 favourite to win the title with the Jennifer O’Donnell trained The Other Kobe 7/2 in the betting. Bobsleigh Dream qualified in third place and is 6/1 for trained Pat Buckley.
The second semi-final was won by the Laurence Jones owned and trained Well Met who skipped round HQ in 29.59 as the 6/4 favourite.
This son of Ballymac Best – Corduff Flame won by two lengths to the Graham Holland trained Garryvoe Joe with Liam Dowling’s Ballymac Ben grabbing third.
Well Met is 11/2 from 10/1, Garryvoe Joe is 11/4 from 6/1 and Ballymac Ben is the 20/1 outsider with BoyleSports.
Sarah Kinsella, spokesperson for BoyleSports, said: “The Michael Fortune Memorial Derby Plate is for greyhounds who got knocked out of the opening two rounds of the derby.
“The standard is very high this year with Kildare the 6/4 from 11/4 favourite to win the title for trainer Peter Cronin. Garryvoe Joe is next at 11/4 from 6/1 and has really caught the eye with just seven races on his card so he can’t be dismissed.
“It’s going to be a brilliant night of action with the 2022 BoyleSports Irish Greyhound Derby the main attraction.”
