Double win for Jock’s dogs

 
 
 

Hounds

THE two Langholm hounds trained by Jock Fawkes have started October in fine form.
Both of them won last Wednesday at Hallbankgate and both were second last Saturday at Cumrew.
On Saturday the weather could not have been better for the hounds with damp but fair conditions.
There were eight entries in the seniors and Tynemouth and Castle Clansman set off at breakneck pace.
By the time they had reached the first road, they had already opened up a gap on the rest of the field.
The order was the same as they came into view on the top of the fell and at the last road they could still not be parted.
But, as they came over the last brow and the whistles went on, Tynemouth strode away from Clansman on the finish.
Fire Bolt was a clear third and was followed home by Delta Script in fourth. Eagle Hope and Eagle End took the last two tickets.
There were only four runners in the graded and they all set off up the first fell after Ranger who was in front.
When they came back into view, Ranger had a lead of about 20 yards on Delta Surprise and Eagle Priya and it looked as though they were catching the leader as they progressed down the hill.
But Ranger was still in front as they came onto the finish and held on nicely for a deserved win.
Eagle Priya had passed Delta Surprise and took second place, with Delta Surprise getting third a long way ahead of Delta Shimmer.
With the puppy championship still to be decided, it was the two main contenders who set off at a furious pace, with Jazzle just in front of Polaris.
These two were well clear of the rest of the field when they came back over the top and Jazzle stuck to her task and won by about 10 lengths from Polaris.
Eagle Star was third with Sportsman in fourth just ahead of Bobby Moon.
Fire Belle was sixth with her kennel mate Fire Gem taking the supporters’ club prize for being last.
The final race of the day was the veterans and, after a scale at the start, Delta Sparkle set off on her own up the fell.
Buster Moon and Castle Caledonia righted themselves and set off in pursuit.
When they came back into view, Castle Caledonia had closed the gap on Delta Sparkle and was in front by the time they got into the bottom.
When they came on to the finish Caledonia ran wide and Delta Sparkle stuck to her task to win easily, with Castle Caledonia in second. Tyler Moon completed shortly after to get the third ticket.
