Tynemouth is top dog


Hound trails

LANGHOLM hound Castle Clansman pushed the winner of the Common Riding hound trail all the way to the finish but Tynemouth stuck to his job to take the Blue Riband event.
Friday morning’s weather could not have been better for both scent for the hounds and viewing for the spectators.
There were fewer hounds than normal, with an entry of 11 at the slip.
Gillian Paterson was honorary starter, assisted by the judge Tom Barker and the race was started dead on 6.30am.
The two Langholm hounds Castle Caledonia and Castle Clansman set the pace, while Teddy Storrow and Sandra Mordue’s Tynemouth shared the driving as they went out of sight towards halfway.
At the Ewes church road crossing Tynemouth was in front of Castle Clansman, with Fire Bolt just behind the front two. There was about 100 yards to Castle Caledonia.
These four were well clear of the next three, with Eagle Priya just in front of Ranger and Delta Script.
By the time they came to the last road, Tynemouth and Castle Clansman had opened up a huge lead and were across the road and up the bank before Castle Caledonia came into sight.
He was on his own and looked as though he had third place sewn up as he popped up the bank.
Eagle Priya was the next to arrive with about 10 yards on Fire Bolt and Ranger.
Delta Script was a bit back and tried to run down the road but righted herself and followed the others into the wood.
When they appeared on the finish, Tynemouth had 20 yards on Clansman.
When the whistles went on, he easily pulled away and was a worthy winner.
Clansman decided he had time to stop for a lap of water and finally started slowly to climb towards the finish, much to the amusement of the crowd.
He just managed to step over the line for second before the chasing hounds appeared in a bunch.
Eagle Priya finished strongly, with Fire Bolt in tow. Caledonia was fifth.
