Fire Belle has other ideas



THE fields have begun to improve as kennels start to get over the virus and last Saturday they were greeted with warm sunshine at Middlemoss for the Association trail.
The non-produce bitch trail is for bitch pups which have not been bred out of BHTA registered hounds.
Five hounds qualified for this race and they all set off at a good pace.
When they first came into sight at about halfway, Jazzle was in front and led Fire Belle and Eagle End over the road.
As they came on to the finish, Jazzle was still in front and looked the likely winner but Fire Belle had other ideas and stuck in on the finish.
Jazzle just eased slightly before the line and Fire Belle took her chance and pipped her for first.
Eagle Star ran well for third and Fire Gem was the only other finisher.
Fire Belle is owned by Mandy and Megan Telford of Carlisle.
The pup trail was won by Polaris who was in command all the way round.
Bobby Moon ran well to take second and Delta Scope was third and Sportsman fourth.
Earlier in the day only two hounds completed the course. The consistent Fire Bolt clocked up another win and Buster Moon followed on valiantly for second.
The senior graded was the largest entry of the day and eight hounds were slipped.
Kennelmates Eagle End and Eagle Dude contested it for first and second and kennelmates Fizzler and Chancer took third and fourth.
Red Hot Bob and Tyneview were the other placed winners.
The final race was the veterans and Linda Neale’s Eagle Priya got herself on the scoreboard with a nice win ahead of Border Jasmine.
