2016 Results - Day 3

Trialling is due to start at 8am today. It's another wet start to the day and the temperature dropped overnight.

There are another 45 runs in the singles before the run-offs tonight. The Welsh AGM will be held at lunchtime. 

Today's sheep are the same ewes which were run on Thursday.

Llyr Evans was first to run with his red and white Zac. They've set a high standard scoring 204 points. Gerald Lewis has scored 194 points with the third run of the day with Splash.

The sheep look very settled so far and are working well.

The rain has cleared and the grandstand is starting to fill up. So far, everyone is favouring the left hand outrun again.

Sophie Holt and Hybeck Blake have gone into the lead with 206 points. John Ellis and Cap have scored 200.

Sophie's reign was short-lived. Kelvin Broad and Kinloch Levi are now top of the leader board on 209 points.

Just before 11am the judges brought in a standard.

Before lunch Gethin Jones and Maddie added to the high scores with 202 points.

The annual meeting was held in the marquee during the break. The sheep had gone off a bit before the break, but were still working well. Running resumed with Steve Lewis, of Llandrindod Wells, and Moss. They completed the course to applause from the large number of spectators here this afternoon.

Kelvin's score of 209 is still top. The best scores are all above the 200 mark.
