For the second time in 24 hours, a major event has failed to fill leaving organisers to restructure the first round. On Tuesday Crayford found themselves ‘five dolls’ short in their £7,500-to-winner event.

On Wednesday, Henlow were unable to field a sixth first round heat of their Puppy Derby. As a result, the first three from heats one and two will be joined in the semi finals by the first four from the last three heats.

Despite the shortage of volume, there will be plenty of class on display with Droopys Cannon, Perrys Choice and Bockos Doomie already established open racers with plenty of local interest among the recently arrived 28.44 Waterford winner Savana Me Daddy.
