Which heats (Unders/Overs) are run at which times will depend largely on who can arrive at which times on the day, although this is a really good afternoon out and therefore worth arranging to get there for the start. The details of which dogs are in each heat need to be submitted for printing in the catalogue, hence the requirement to pre-book, so please ring asap to secure your place.
