Qualifiers from day two


The qualifying competition continued on day two of the World Trial ahead of Saturday’s semi-final.

The weather was a mixed bag. It was a mostly cloudy day with brief spells of sunshine and some heavy showers. In Field 2 there was thunder overhead and running had to stop during the heaviest rain. The wind picked up in the afternoon, but did not seem to cause hearing problems for the dogs.

Once again, the top seven places from each field qualified for the semi-final of 42 runners.
