Tillmouth, Open Trial
- Open Trial
- Venue: Tillmouth
- Trial Held: 16 November 2014
Judge: ROY DRUMMER
Tracklayers: Stevie and Colin
Steward: Samantha Ashton
I should like to start by thanking ASPADS for the invitation to judge this stake and I would also like to thank sincerely Jackie Suckling for her work as trials manager; all the ladies in the kitchen; all the base staff, tracklayers Stevie and Colin, and Sam, my steward who did her job to perfection.
We had 6 competitors who all ran and worked very hard. Tracking was excellent in the main, and where it was not, it is just a matter of practise for the teams involved. It is there, ready to develop.
Most of the C/A was also very good but, as ever, jumps and down stay made the critical difference. Again - more practise. All teams will have taken home some very pleasing positives and will be able to practise the things which are not quite there
1st Mr F L Campbell with CONISTAN DANNY BOY, 198.5, Q. A super round; steady and most competent. This team is on its way. Well done, both of you.
2nd Mrs M Biddle with JACKANORY WHAT A STORY, 180, NQ. Well done, both of you; just that little moment at the start of the down stay lost it. A lovely round.
3rd Miss A Bedford with BERTIE WOOFSTER, 178.5, NQ. Nice performance, Ann, but he was not jumping today.
4th Mrs F Davidson with SUNNY FIRECRACKER, 142, NQ. Well done, Fiona. Keep working at it. You will get there.
