Massive leap brings Fire Bolt home

 
 
 

Hounds
IT WAS back on to the open going at Moss Petteril last Saturday and first trail was the seniors.
Delta Script set off as the hot favourite after her fifth win of the season last Wednesday at Lazonby where she beat championship leader Tynemouth.
At the halfway stage there was a group of hounds all together but as they came into view, the consistent Fire Bolt was in front and he led all the way down the finish, giving a massive leap at final fence to secure his first win of the season.
Tommy Moon had been up with the leaders all the way and finished second in front of kennel mate Buster Moon. Delta Script had to settle for fourth.
In the maidens it was hard to pick a winner. Lucky Charm led them through halfway but there were plenty of dogs in with a chance as they came on to the finish.
This season’s newcomer Frankel stuck in well to win and Red Hot Bob just missed out with a late burst.
Lucky Charm finished nicely for third, having stuttered at the second last fence.
The pups all showed fine form to clear the high wall on the run out without hesitation.
Jazzle likes the conditions at the moment and is running for fun. She led all the way and was never in danger on the finish as she flew home to make it five wins in a row.
The final race was the veterans and Castle Caledonia set off favourite but Tyler Moon stuck with him and they battled back and forth for the lead most of the way.
They had pulled out a lead over the rest of the field by the time they came on to the finish.
They both ran slightly wide but Caledonia straightened up first, stole a few yards and did enough to hold on to win. Jazz Singer ran well for her first time at the venue.
