Weimaraner 

Open (4,2) 

1 Kerslake’s Kuantan Cosworth 

Well grown junior. Coming together nicely. Well boned with good length of body and tidy feet. Good rear angulation. Moved well to win this class.

Balanced mature male with straight front legs, neat feet and good turn of stifle. Moved well to win this class.  

2 Caile’s Kamaze Cosmic Diamond

Pointer 

Post Grad (3) 

1 Matthews’ Medogold Tartini with Sonham 

My Best of Breed and Group 3. Just 15 months and looking the part today. Lovley head shape with typical expression. Clean neck of good length, well boned front legs with decent layback of shoulder. Strong over her quarters with good turn of stifle. She moved soundly and with enthusiasm.  

2 Osman’s Fleurfield Firethorn at Marissolo 

Likeable b/w. Well made through, stronger but balanced head. He too is balanced through with firm couplings and plenty of rear angulation. Moving well. Splitting hairs.  

3 Dykes’ Fleurfield Magic Flute at Briartor 

Open (1) 

1 Needham’s Whealbetsy Elsie 

7 Years b/w nicely shaped head with good reach of neck and straight front. Finer through but looked well in profile.  

English Springer Spaniel 

Post Grad (4,2) 

1 Merrick’s Tiverstone Statesman at Stormerick 

2 Kibby’s Tiverstone Lady’s Delight 

Litter mates of 8 months. Both with plenty of similar qualities. I thought the winner to be a little more together than his sister with a good head, eyes and straight in front. He is well balanced with good rear angulation. His coat is a bit unruly at the moment but that will come. The girl is also well made and though tidier in coat was not as together in front or quite as strong over her quarters at the moment. Should be interesting to see them come on.

Another puppy full of potential. Strongly made and well boned. Good head, in lovely coat. Moved with drive.  

3 Rainey’s English Setter Ravensett Marbella at Wolmersdon
