At the end of the first round the judges called for 5 brace of dogs back for the second round. Grouse showed in good

numbers today. At the end of the trial the judges made the following awards:

 

* 1st Excellent: IRSB Ballydavid Starjet of the Kingdom handled by Hugh Brady.

2nd Excellent: IR&WSB Rosie Jim handled by Raymond Monroe

3rd Excellent: IRSB Malstabodarna Embla handled by Hugh Brady.

* Starjet has recently had a bad injury and it was thought that her field trial days were over so

it is a fantastic return to the fields for her!
