Judge: ERIC NICHOLLS

Thank you Fingal Dog Club for the invitation to judge the UD, WD and TD stakes at your Championship Trial and to Anne Coleen for the excellent hospitality and transport. In addition all the helpers, far too many to mention, caterers, stewards and tracklayers did an excellent job and along with the competitors created a smashing atmosphere at this trial.

The weather on Friday and Sunday was OK for the tracking but unfortunately the continuous rain on Saturday made it extremely difficult for the TD dogs.
