RETRIEVER (GOLDEN)

PUPPY (3 Entries, 1 Absent, 0 w/d)

1st Ellis, Phipps-Baker & Baker, Ms K, Mrs S & Mr I TENFIELD ALCOR

Lovely 7 month old puppy looking just right for her age. Elegant, balanced and feminine with a beautiful head and expression. Good body, straight front and rear. Moved nicely and showed so beautifully for her handler – she’s a natural! It was fantastic seeing her go 1st in Puppy Group – very well done. BP, Puppy Group 1

2nd Hermitage, Mrs S A SHMONTE SECRET ANGEL

9 month old puppy of good type, well off for body and bone, but slightly longer in loin and needs a bit more ring practice.

JUNIOR (6 Entries, 2 Absent, 0 w/d)

1st Wells, Mrs J PEARLBARN PERONI

Really liked this young man, he’s got all the energy and presence needed for the ring and then some! Balanced with excellent proportions, lovely masculine head, good pigment, straight front and rear - a lovely overall picture. He just needs to settle and firm up a little on the move.

2nd Phipps-Baker & Baker, Mrs S & Mr I MADDOUSE TOP HAT

Another very nice young boy with a beautiful outline. Superb head, expression, pigment. Well made with a straight front and rear. Sadly he went lame due to what I was later told was an injury to his paw.

POST GRADUATE (5 Entries, 3 Absent, 0 w/d)

1st Wells, Mrs J PEARLBARN POT OF GOLD

One I’ve judged before and similar remarks apply. Lovely boy with a nice masculine head and kind expression, good body, firm topline on the move, straight front and rear. Moved well, but just preferred the front assembly of the bitch today. RBOB

2nd Maker, Mr & Mrs T P WYNRITA SECRET AGENT AT DREAMLAND

Good sized boy with a masculine head and good body and bone. Preferred movement of 1 today.

OPEN (3 Entries, 1 Absent, 0 w/d)

1st Pett, Mrs M STORMERICK HIGH HOPES AT RUMWOOD

Many good points on this happy feminine bitch with a nice head, good reach of neck, good body, well angulated and straight front and rear. She moves straight and true coming and going with good reach and drive in profile when settled. Bit longer cast but took BOB today on her movement and front assembly. BOB, Group 3

2nd Rose, Mr M F & Mrs D G RULER OF THE WORLD OVER AZTECA

Good sized boy with good bone, body, substance and excellent cat-like feet. Lovely firm topline. Just would’ve preferred better front assembly on him.
