It is a privilege to Judge the Champion Stakes which presents a ring of CLASS dogs to be gone over. The only regret is that there can only be 1 winner and places 1 to 5, with so many quality dogs having to leave cardless and without acknowledgement of their breed qualities and the fine lines which edged my preference for the winners.
