5th. Bianca Gerritse & 'LUCKY PLAYER DINKY-DI-DUTCH'. Australian Kelpie (Lucky). 14 1/2. A tight lead and standing up on the recall proving too costly, could so easily have been at the other end of the line up. Well done

3rd. Sandra Noh & 'DARJEELING'S ONYX'. BC (Nox). 55. Really good heelwork on a par with the winner, nice handling. Expensive sendaway and scent then moved on down stay, keep going you will do well
4th. Ton Van Santen & 'CLAN OF STORK'S JAGUAR'. Bearded Collie. (Troy). 72 1/2. Another with heelwork on a par with the winner, the set excercies letting you down with extra commands on retrieve and speaking over the cloths on scent. Good luck for the future
