The fourth race of the year saw Daniel Mundet, running his first handicap, finish well clear of handicap veteran David Cattanach. Holly Davey crossed the line in a fine third, just beating coach Hugh Pearson in fourth.
However I mistakenly sent off Holly and Sara 30 seconds ahead of schedule and Stephen Boddy 90 seconds late together with Rob arriving a little late. So after all of these adjustments the results show Rob and Stephen in 3rd and 4th. Some rogue flour sent a few off into the woods losing about 5 minutes, so I’ve decided to give 5 points to Ian, Dominic, Sara and Stephen Small. Jenson unfortunately had retire hurt after a fall on the steps.
Scott showed no signs of post marathon fatigue recording the fastest time on the night of 21:43, Robin and Graham also sped round with sub 24 minute times.
Top of the handicap table hasn’t changed too much with Tom Pomfrett still leading on 63 points, 11 ahead of John Armitstead and 13 on David Cattanach who leapt to 3rd after finishing second on the night, see the full handicap table here.
The handicap for May is a ‘sealed’ handicap using the Swaledale Harrogate League race, Tues. 31st May.
