Strong neck and excellent front with strong, deep chest. Lovely compact feet. Correctly sloping topline and well carried tail. Powerfully muscled hindquarters enabling him to power round the ring with ease. The perfect mover. BD & BoB.

Open Bitch (5 entries, 2 absent)

While first and second were completely different, I loved them both which made for a difficult choice.1st. Jelfs’ Lapema Nino Vudu JW. A very pretty 3 year old with a lovely head, nice dark almond shaped eyes and small ears. Overall a nice shape and with plenty of bone. Lovely straight, well-boned legs, deep chest and nicely set and well furred tail. Powerful hindquarters enabling her to move excellently and tirelessly round the ring. BB & RBoB. 2nd. Keeling’s Kishdigra Criminal Intent. 3 years old and very different to 1st, but still lovely. Quite a big girl with a nice head and expression and dark eyes which are well set. Nice strong front with well arched neck and deep chest. Good bone, nice strong hocks and correct tail. Moved nicely round the ring. I just preferred the overall shape of 1st. RBB. 3rd.
