Dave Hunt, trainer of Sawpit Sensation said "We are delighted to be involved. Hopefully Alien Planet will make a swift recovery"
He added "Sensation will be running at Sheffield on Tuesday in the Ladbrokes.com Irish Greyhound Derby Trial Stakes which will set him up nicely for Nottingham. Win or lose we then head straight to Shelboune Park".
