After the Mid Antrim Show there are a few new names on the leaderboard with champions Eddie Loughran, Eugene McComb, C McEvoy, Aubrey Crowe and Novice Paddy Tumelty joining the mix.
Still out front after their almost clean sweep at Kent in round 1 the new Skeffington and Gill Partnership laid down the challenge for everyone to play catchup.
Adrian Short with a much smaller team is hot on their heels.
Round 4 should prove interesting with the West Midland’s show very late cancellation due to an Avian Flu outbreak in the area of the venue being escalated from a temporary restriction to a full UK edict “No Bird Gathering Allowed” situation; leaving many of the big hitters on the leader board no opportunity to improve their positions.
Swansea show on the same date might, if they go ahead, give others an opportunity to enter the fray. We shall see.
