Results Day 2 (Saturday 6th August 2016)

The second day of trialling started on time at 7.30am, with the singles judges Robin Dean and Bevis Jordan back in their seats. Today's sheep are being re-run from yesterday. There are blue skies and bright sunshine and it is already quite warm. The forecast is for a dry, sunny day and the temperatures could rise later. 

So far, the brace competiton has been disappointing. Out of today's three competitors only Bob Harland managed to post a score. He almost completed the course, with the bell calling time as he was closing the pen gate. He is the current leader with Flash and Laddie.

Generally the sheep have been more settled today. At run number 87, Ricky Hutchinson stormed to the top of the leader board with Sweep. He stayed at the top, seven points clear of nearest contenders, Tim Foster and his red and white Cockburn Mist.

Some dogs were coming off the field very hot as the sun shone for most of the day. Later on there were patches of cloud which gave some respite from the heat. The judges brought in a standard this afternoon and trialling concluded at 7pm.
