As a son of Dell, Aston is already demonstrating many of his sire's qualities in his working attitude but has a the benefit of more flair.
Aston has made a very bright start to working tests and novice trials in 2015; including finishing 2nd in his first novice trial at Southern & Western Counties in December 2015 and then 2nd in the Essex Novice Stake at Ampton on the 12th.
A very promising young lad with whom we look forward to 2016; as he started the year with a convincing win at the Chiltern Novice Stake at Beckering, in January 2016. where the secretary stated:
"As for the winner - what a performance! Five retrieves - all spotlessly clean, including two runners and eye-wiping four dogs. Lovely dog to watch."
Aston had his first 2016 run at Lothian and Borders 2 Day Stake in September where he gained a very commendable COM after two hard days trialling. He then went on to receive a further COM at the Scottish Field Trials Association 2 day stake at Bowhill in October where the ground was exceptionally gruelling and he coped brilliantly competing against a very strong field of Field Trial Champions. Aston is growing in confidence with each run; finishing a very good 4th at the Dove Valley October Open stake at the end of October then in November he won North West LRC Open Trial at Hy-Fly during which he performed a stunning retrieve on a running partridge. This qualifies Aston for the 2016 I.G.L. Retriever Championship.
