Graceful and elegant, he moved with high stepping and free action in profile and straight action in front and strong action from well muscled and angulated hindquarters.

3rd: 479 COLLINS Mrs A Salatini Satinella

PB 1st: 494 LISTER Miss H M Revillo Grazioso. This bitch will be a star of the future, as I assessed her I thought that this was a good omen as I will have worthy CC winner come what may; but as fresh 6 month old, she missed out to her more mature friends and kennel mates on the day.
