Jack is performer of round two.

OUR panel deciding the Post's Performance of the Second Round salver proved split between Friday's win of the only pup left in the williamhill.com Derby, Farloe Skywalker, who led home a 1-2 for Matt Dartnall, and Saturday's fastest-of-the-night run from Toomaline Jack, so impressive when overcoming an uncharacteristic slow start.

After much debate, a vote gave a narrow verdict to Dolores Ruth's Irish star. The salver will be presented before Saturday's opening heat, along with a bottle of malt, and pounds 50 of Hills' vouchers intended for the kennelhand.

Bandicoot Tipoki took the opening round award (presentation above).

WINDY MILLAR, who took a crashing fall in Saturday's final second round heat, faces an operation this week to remove a badly damaged dew claw, but is expected to make a full recovery.

"It was a horrible fall," said trainer Pat Rosney yesterday, "and he's very sore today but it could have been a lot worse.

The dew claw is all but sliced off and will need to be operated on, but he should get back to the track and we,ve got to be thankful for that."
