The winner had actually been given away to the Foxparke kennel before trailing began with James McLellan handing on to Robyn Napier.

There have been surprise winners over the years and this was certainly up there with the biggest of them.

Lady Ava, by Endure out of Lady Anne, was a maiden and had picked-up just three tickets in her  short career.

She was second of four finishers out of nine runners in the puppy trail at Oulton on August 13; sixth of ten in an open non-winners at Potter’s Park four days later and then fifth of 17 in a puppy trail at Wythop on September 6.

It was a good finish, too, with Lady Ava holding-off three fancied hounds in close proximity – Cracking Last One Two, Bretton and Jenny’s Quest – and about six lengths would have covered the four.

Although it was a shock win, it was also a popular one, given that the young girls involved with the Foxparke team are the right sort of advert for the sport in attracting young, newcomers to hound trailing.

In the senior trail Huntsman’s Nimrod pegged back another on long-time table leader Miterdale Shadow but in the open pups two of the leading youngsters Young Harry and Wait ‘n See could only manage fourth and sixth respectively behind Biff.

The winning team is pictured - Robyn Napier, Ellie Napier and Brooke Butler with Bitch Produce winner 2020, Lady Ava.
