Beagle Club

Beagle Club Open Show 

24th March 2018 

  

It was indeed a pleasure to judge the Beagle Club Open Show and I would like to thank the committee for the invitation. Thanks also for the flattering entry and the chance to go over your hounds. I found bitches stronger than males in general, however there were a few classes that gave me quite a headache and I'm sure on another day could quite easily change the places. Most were presented in good order, which I appreciated. There are some very promising youngsters up and coming which only bodes well for the future.  

 

Dogs 

Minor Puppy 

1:  Taylor's DEACONFIELD KINGCRAFT, 6 month old tri with lots of potential. Delightful head and expression. Totally balanced in outline and pleases very much for balance of angulation. Moved on the right track and covered the ground in profile 

2: Hunt & Norris' SHERCROFT HECTOR, tan and white slightly bigger than the winner. Pleased for expression. Good fore hand but didn't use himself on the go around as the winner today. 

  

Puppy 

1:  Craig's DAVRICARD HARLEQUIN, gorgeous puppy for type and shape. Totally balanced in outline and angles in the right place. Good to go over on the table with a very pleasing head and expression. All male and moved with precision on the out and back, keeping his outline in profile. BPD 

2: Coates' ROYAL PACK UKRAINE LEADER FOREVER AT GLADSTYLE (Imp) slightly different type but still with lots to like. Pleased for head and expression, not quite the front on the winner but decent angulation behind. In super condition and moved on the right track 

3: Hill's LULUWELLS MAJOR AT DONAY 

  

Junior 

1: Walden & Thornton's NEDLAW TRUMPETER WITH MAPLELAYNE,  tan and white with a pleasing outline. Good topline and tailset. Liked his head and expression. Balanced in angulation and moved out well. Beautifully handled 

  

Yearling 

1: Evans & Millward's BELLVALLEY TEEN SPIRIT, Quite delightful tri with a beautiful head and expression. Presented to perfection. He is so well balanced and a joy to go over on the table. Strong neck in to well laid shoulder and superb topline and tailset. Balanced behind he opens up on the move and has style in bucket loads. Really liked him 

2: Wright & Mitchell's HUNTSHILL TORNADO JW, very much a hound and workmanlike. He is pleasing in head and expression, decent neck and front. Short coupled and well angulated behind. Just not the wow factor on the move of the winner today

2: Walden's NEDLAW QUINCY, really liked the head and expression on this boy and he too has a strong neck and superb topline. Well balanced in angulation and looks good in profile. Just felt he wasn't as precise on the out and back as the winner today 

3: Gitten's BOOMERLOO MERLINS MAGIC 

  

Limit 

1: Parker & Stevens' SERENAKER HOT AS 'ELL, superb young tri boy of obvious quality, beautifully presented and in superb condition. Melting expression on a masculine but balanced head.

Champion in the making I'm sure. RBD

Open 

1: Walden & Thornton's NEDLAW BENEDICT WITH MAPLELAYNE, Really super male who screams hound. Gorgeous head and expression, long, strong neck, decent layback of shoulder and perfect topline and tailset. Very good for angles behind. He is precise in front but it is in profile that he can not be overlooked.  Well handled and putting on a show. BD & RBIS

Special Open Working 

1:  McBain & Stevens' BONDLEA LAYMAN, Res in a good limit dog class earlier. In superb hard condition. He has a strong neck and excellent topline. Well angulated but would just prefer a little more leg for balance. 

2: Haylock's GEMARK THYME GENTLEMAN 3rd in the veteran class and a real sweetie. Great for his age and he has a super temperament enjoying his day out. 

  

Bitches 

Minor Puppy 

1: Parker & Steven's SERENAKER MAID IN AMERICA, simply delightful young 6 month old tri girl who has champion stamped all over her.

Puppy 

1: May's JANFREY DOTTY, super for type and balanced in outline. Loved her head and expression and she is so good to go over on the table. Naughty on the move today but she had moments where she showed that she knew what it was all about and put her feet in exactly the right place.  Once she learns what it's all about, will be a serious contender.

2: Bradley's DUFOSEE NORTHERN STAR,so close up and she too has the most delightful head and expression. Superb topline and well off for angulation behind. Just felt she didn't use herself in front today which was a shame but she should easily carry a crown.
