  1. Was it the sheep bags and cane reeds or them competeing on home turf? Nice to see a shake up and may be a wake up to Field Marshall to get the finger out. Watch for FMM to crank it up a knotch the Saturday.

  2. Again, at Dumbarton, FMM had drumming problems (placed 1st and 1st in piping). See results on the RSPBA website. Malahide full results not posted yet after a week. Patrick
