1st: Richardson’s Gwaihir's Indy Star Via Hollinsclose. Absolutely stunning puppy. Well balanced and of ample substance. Well-proportioned head with excellent finish. Super dark eyes, well set ears and large well placed nose. Moderate breadth of chest. Strong loins. Tail carried correctly. Super mover. BPIB, seriously considered him for the RCC and delighted to see him win PG2. A champion in the making.

2nd: Graham’s Jameneli Whirlwind NAF. Such attractive head qualities. A lot less mature than 1 and therefore, as yet, giving a lot away in stages of development. Well balanced throughout and exemplary presentation. Excellent rear angulation and drive. Front movement to settle but at 7 months maturity is on his side.

1st: Morgan-Stanley’s Golbourne King Of Diamonds. Blk/Sil. Produces a square outline, is of a lovely size. Adequate bone and substance. Head of correct proportions. Would prefer slightly larger eyes. Moved OK.

JD (3 Entries) Abs: 1

1st: Brown’s Jadechar Pride Of The Hero. Strongly built. Head wide in proportion, with muzzle length and width all in balance. Excellent dentition and finish. Dark round appealing eyes. Goodly reach of neck enabling this to be proudly arched on the move. Level backline, high set tail. Whilst he may appear a touch longer cast, he has a strong loin and enough behind the tail. Super rear angulation. Moves with a demonstrative gait and effortless stride covering the ground with ease. Head held proudly which beautifully compliments his gaily held tail. Handled to advantage and presented in fantastic condition. CC & BOB

2nd: Bryans’s Teejay Struck Gold. This dog is extremely impressive to handle. I consider his size and shape to be exactly what the breed standard requires. Impressive balance of head and appealing eyes. Touch short in neck. Secure level back. Moved OK.

1st: Morgan-Stanley & Dixon’s Wanted The Scandalizer At Golbourne (Imp Nor). Balanced bone and substance. Square in outline. Desired head proportions with defined stop and appealing round dark eyes. Moved well enough but he could have done more.

2nd: Sproul & Coburn Danack's Million Reasons For Khandro. Strongly built and square enough. Well-made hindquarters and good second thigh. Tail just a touch low set and I preferred the head of 1.

OD (5 Entries) Abs: 1

1st: Graham’s Ch Jameneli Cream Craicer. Well balanced and strongly built. I have judged this lovely dog twice before and have given him BOB on one occasion. I have always admired his head qualities and never tired of staring into that gorgeous expression. He stands square in profile with correct tail set, secure level back. Strong rear angulations and plenty behind the tail. Today however, he appeared a touch ‘flat’ especially in the challenge when, in comparison, the Junior Dog was alert, ultra-active and demonstrative in his approach which made the significant difference. RCC

2nd: Brown’s Ch Broevans Legend Of The Hero. Another lovely example of the breed. Handled to perfection, he pressed 1 all the way. Super head balance and expression, impressive bone, topline and tail setting. OK neck and front. Enough behind the tail. Flashy mover.

3rd: Richardson’s Ch Gwaihir's Caribe Baron (Fin Imp)

1st: Murray’s Jameneli Mischief Maker (NAF). Such a gorgeous head and expression and has fantastic eyes! A real sweetheart. Secure topline, tail well set. Strong hindquarters which proved an economic rear drive. Front movement to settle. Presented in excellent condition.

PGB (3 Entries) Abs: 1

1st: Sergeant’s Melfield Firecrest Feather with Grestean. Produces a really square profile. This well-made bitch is so honest and is impressive to handle. Best of heads. Super bone and substance and excellent rear angulations and butt! I would have preferred more animation on the move. Presented in excellent condition.

2nd: Sampson’s Kerryken Anastasia. Decidedly square in profile. Excelled in head qualities which were balance with correct ratios and dark eyes. Not the bone and substance of 1. Became a little tense which affected her topline. Rather upright in shoulder so forehand reach was somewhat restricted. Well-muscled.

LB (3 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: Morgan-Stanley’s Golbourne Gosh I'm Posh. Yes she certainly is! Beautifully balanced and straightforward being well built and of ideal bone and substance. Impressive head, fair neck and shoulders. Strong hindquarters and excellent rear angulation. Coat texture OK. Handled to get the best out of her as she is not the most cooperative. In the challenge, I rather surprised myself as the more I saw the more I appreciated the many virtues which she possessed. In profile she is certainly ‘All Lowchen’ and this finally swayed me to award her the CC over her litter sister.

2nd: Pascoe’s Jadechar Miss Independence. Liked the size and balanced. Beautifully presented coat. Strong rear angulation. Appealing head. Just a little loose in front movement. Excellent rear drive.

3rd: Senior’s Jamieneli Kinky Boots At Sophreta

OB (2 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: Morgan-Stanley & Dixon’s Golbourne In Your Dreams Sh.CM. The colour combination of this attractive bitch enhances her many attributes. Gorgeous expression and lovely eyes. Presented in first class coat and condition she is certainly the glamour girl. Moved very well. She strongly contended for the large green card which was literally ‘stolen’ from her by her litter sister. RCC

2nd: Creffield’s Melfield Bella Trix. Super coat, bone and substance. Strong hindquarters with plenty of muscle tone. Super loins. Produces a lovely shape on the stand. Touch wide coming back to me. Appealing head qualities.

VB (2 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: Morgan-Stanley’s Ch Banacek April Love From Golbourne Sh.CM. Well-built with plenty of substance without any sign of coarseness. Feminine head, good for length of neck, topline and rear angulation. Moved a touch wide in front. Presented in fabulous condition. A super showgirl. Best Veteran.

2nd: Bush’s Bundu Callipygian. 10 year old and in good condition. Super eyes and expression. Great dentition! Well sprung ribs. Not really terribly happy so movement was not at its best.
