No fog on this Tynemouth



TYNEMOUTH continued his winning form with another impressive win, this time at the Lodge Gill trophy trail last Sunday.
The trophies were presented in memory of Tony Harrison, a great Border hound trail enthusiast.
There were six entries for the first trail and Tynemouth set off up the first hill in front and was leading as they went out of sight.
When they came back into view on the far hill, he was still in front, with Delta Script and Fire Bolt close in second and third.
Onto the finish and he held his lead to make it his second win of the week and continued his recent winning form.
Fire Bolt was a good second with Delta Script having to settle for third. Eagle Priya ran well for fourth and Buster Moon was fifth.
Ten hounds were slipped in the next race and Castle Clansman set off at a cracking pace and had opened up a lead before they were out of sight.
Coming along the side of the hill, he had about 50 yards on the rest of the field but, by the time they came onto the finish, Red Hot Bob was just in front and powered home over the line.
Clansman faded and Eagle End finished quickly for second, with Fizzler also running well for third.
Clansman was fourth and Eagle Hope and Pirate Jake took the final tickets.
There were only three pups entered and Jazzle set off in front with the other two in hot pursuit.
Eagle Star made a mistake at the far end and lost a lot of ground.
When they came on to the top on the finish, Jazzle had a lead of about 20 yards on Delta Scope and maintained this to chalk up another win.
Eagle Star could not catch up but finished well for third.
Four pups were slipped in the graded race and Bobby Moon was setting the pace as they went out of sight.
When they came back into view on the top, Fire Belle was neck and neck with him and so it was as the whistles went on down the finish.
Fire Belle was just in front but slowed and Bobby Moon took his chance to spring forward just on the line to win and give his owners, the Hill family, a second win on the day.
The final race was the veterans and four were slipped. Castle Caledonia set off odds on favourite and duly obliged as he led them home for an easy win down the rough finish.
Kennelmates Delta Sparkle and Delta Shimmer were second and third, with Border Jasmine in fourth.
This year’s Common Riding is a very open affair and might spring a surprise winner.
Teddy Storrow and Sandra Mordue’s Tynemouth should start favourite and, on recent form, it is hard to see him get beaten, except that he does not have a great record in the race, having failed to complete last year.
Sarah Harper’s Delta Script is running well at the moment but, as a two year old, you have to question whether she has the experience.
Willie Telford’s Fire Bolt is the most consistent hound and punters will certainly get a good run for their money.
Langholm hound Castle Clansman will no doubt run a good race but his record on the finish will put paid to his chances of winning.
His stablemate and previous winner Castle Caledonia will need to draw on all his experience if he is to win and, although he has been winning lately, he has been running on the shorter trails so his stamina at the age of seven is questionable.
Outsiders to watch are Linda Neale’s kennel which has produced two winners previously in this trail so do not discount Eagle Priya and Eagle Hope.
Tracy and Carolyn Hill’s Red Hot Bob is a strong finisher and certainly knows how to win so, if he is with them on the finish, he cannot be discounted.
We wish them all good luck.
