Rascal set to compete with Hotspur in the semi-finals
Mark Wallis and Patrick Janssens will be in direct competition with each other during Saturday’s William Hill St Leger semi-finals.
Lakenheath handler Wallis started the competition with seven entrants, but just one of his dogs made it through to the weekend’s quarter-finals at Perry Barr.
That was Rubys Rascal, who got through again with victory in the fourth quarter-final.
And he will be joined in the semis by Janssens’ Goldies Hotspur following her third-placed finish.
The pair have been drawn in the first of two semi-finals at 8.50pm.
However, there was not such positive news for Hockwold-based Janssens’ Slick Strauss after he bowed of the Category 1 competition at the quarter-final stage.
