1st: 161 MANN Mr & Mrs J R & V Valger Ragnar

Much to like about this dog who is coming up 9 months of age. Thought him to be well proportioned and having good balance when stacked for one so young. Pleasing masculine and lean head, well shaped eye. Good length of neck showing the slight crest, flowing well into a firm short back. Brisket down to the elbow and nicely angulated fore and aft. Showing a lovely stride in profile, needing to tighten in front, super drive from the rear

2nd: 167 ROSE, Mrs S & HUNT Miss D Pingarypoint Top Secret At Kavacanne

Another pleasing youngster, of a different stamp to winner being a little taller on the leg and still needing to fill his frame a little more, but at only 8 months old he has plenty of time. He has a masculine head and kind expression. Clean neck of good length, nicely filled in forechest, enough depth with a good spring to the ribs. Well boned limbs with a good sweep of stifle. Shown in a good harsh jacket. Moving out true, just a little bum high at present

1st: 144 COE Mrs N Goosepoint Waddington At Abbanash (ai)

Spirited and fun loving 11 month old dog. Very smart and balanced in profile. He is masculine but not overdone, with strength and good bone. His head is well balanced with a good length to the foreface, a well shaped eye colour toning well with the coat. Clean neck of good length, flowing well into his firmly held topline. Thought he had lovely depth and development of forechest and brisket. Having a positive footfall on the move, with the odd bounce thrown in for good measure! - BPD

21 month old solid liver dog. Liked his overall size and shape, he is masculine yet graceful. Handler and dog not quite working in harmony as yet, but this will come with practice. Well proportioned head, being clean cut and with a good length to the foreface, eye a shade light at present. Being well developed through the body, showing good depth to the brisket. Holding a firm topline. Well bent stifles which he used on the move

Of a different stamp to winner, but another super pup, that I liked very much. Workmanlike with super substance and development all through, nothing is overdone and very feminine.
