Jazzle wins at Copshaw Common Riding


EVERYONE was up bright and early last Saturday for the Copshaw Common Riding.
Ten hounds were slipped and Bobby Moon led them out over the the first stretch but after he tumbled in the rough going, Polaris took over.
After a small scale and before going out of view, it looked like Jazzle and Polaris were opening up a lead.
As As they came over the top on the finish, Polaris was just in front but there was a bunch of five all within a few yards of each other.
As they progressed down the hill, Steph Lithgow’s Jazzle got herself to the front and held on by a length from a fast-finishing Fire Belle, owned by Amanda Telford, who took second.
Linda Neale’s Eagle Star also came from about fifth position to get up for third place passing George and Gillian McGimpsey’s hound Polaris just before the line.
Sarah Harper’s Delta Scope ran well for fifth, with Gillian McGimpsey and Toto Paterson’s Sportsman taking the final ticket.
There were prizes for the first three maiden hounds home and these were won by Sportsman, Border Gem and Bobby Moon.
There were testing conditions last Wednesday night with the heat but this did not affect Tynemouth as he chalked up another easy victory.
He came home unchallenged at Wintershields to extend his championship points tally almost out of reach of the others.
Delta Script came home second, with Eagle Priya running a good race and stepping up from the second division to take third. Fire Bolt was the only other finisher.
There were six runners in the first senior graded trail of the season and it proved to be a first and second for Linda Neale’s Eagle Hope and Eagle End.
Castle Clansman led them down the hill but faded badly on the finish to get third.
The final race was the puppies which attracted 10 ten runners.
Jazzle was back on top form and skipped home ahead of Eagle Star and Fire Belle.
Polaris had to settle for fourth place on this occasion. Delta Scope and Border Blossom took the other tickets.
