Field Trial Cancelled

I am sorry to announce that as we have received insufficient entries for the FCRS All-Aged Stake on 26 November 2018 at Combe Estate, Gittisham, Devon the event has been cancelled. 
Unfortunately there have recently been a number of entries withdrawn, and even with a few days left before the final closing date for entries we will be unable to get to the minimum number to run the trial.
Thank you to those that did enter and to all who stepped forward to help on the day.  I also want to thank Helen Ford for finding the venue and and all her help with the planning and organisation of the event.
David Savory
Hon. Field Trial Secretary
