pups finish shap.pngHuntsman’s Nimrod pulled one back on HTA senior table leader Miterdale Shadow at Shap on Saturday.

The Patterdale bitch finished clear of kennel-mate Huntsman’s Novice and all the ticketing hounds were well strung out.

It proved to be an important win, after her success at Fellside on Thursday, as Miterdale Shadow went down to a surprise defeat at Dearham on Saturday.

The pups couldn’t have been more different with a group of five showing with a chance (pictured above). Indeed it was Meadow Misty (nearest camera) who showed a good turn of foot when it mattered to get up on the line.

There were 33 slipped for the senior maidens but Canny Mover appeared on the finish alone and won by a huge margin as the rest finished extremely string out.

It was much more of a contest in the open restricted where Insider just held on ahead of the fast finishing pair, Lady Grace and Monsoon.

Few hounds have been consistent as Thorn Fire and she was on song again winning the veterans- which she has dominated all season – five yards ahead of Persian Bay and Bewitched.

After Miterdale Shadow had been beaten by Cracking Last One at Dearham, Silver Dancer, the early season leader in the puppy table,  but got back to winning ways on home territory. She beat Foxparke Buggaboo.
