Tony Daffurn emerged the winner in the High Jump with a leap of 1.75m with Hamilton and Quinn tied for second on  1.70m. Hamilton's two wins and a second place was good enough for him to retain his title. He topped off a fine day of competition by winning the 100 yards scratch race in 10.27 seconds. Aidan Quinn won the handicap 100 yards in 10.69 from a start of 2.5mts.

Kyle Potts,Hawick won the 220 yards handicap in 24.53 with Cameron Clamp TLJT following up his win at Inveraray 48 hours earlier in the 440 yards in 57.29. The scratch 880yards was won by Colin Welsh,Kelso in 2:16.19 with the 880 yards handicap going to Hamish Hickey,Strathpeffer in 2:11.09. Hawicks Derek Scott was victorious in the one mile handicap in 4:34.49.

All the main players were in action in the heavy events.
