The return to Gowran Park turned out a lot better than the previous week, race should have been from Corrin but it was decided that with the weather unpredictable they would stay short. Just short of 20,000 birds were released at the early time of 8.00am in a helping Southerly wind and the birds romped home with good returns reported. Davy Booth has been going great guns recently and enjoyed a top result marking his birds at the Foyle RPS in Derry City, the winner recorded velocity 2166ypm. Four races to date and 4 x 1st Sect H and this week adds 1st, 2nd and 3rd Open NIPA.
