I’d like to thank the officers and committee for the invitation to judge Beagles at the Championship Show and the exhibitors for their entries and accepting my decisions with good grace. The ring was of a good size which allowed the hounds to move out well. Unfortunately there was a metal drain running the width of the ring under the carpet which clattered when stood on and sadly this put a number of exhibits off their stride. Having said that my main winners weren’t fazed by this and put all in to win in strong competition.
1st Simkin’s Eardley Will Power at Simeldaka, 8mth tri of a good size and shape, pleasing head with long leathers, lovely round bone and tight feet, short coupled and level topline held on the move.
2nd Fallon’s Newlin Rambler, 7mth tan & white, good head with pleasing expression, good length of neck and straight front, longer cast than 1st, a little difficult to assess on the move but he was clearly enjoying his day out.
1st Woodcock’s Molesend Verdict at Roddwood, 9mth tan & white who look a picture stood, good head and sufficient neck, straight front with elbows tucked in, well ribbed back into sound quarters, excellent topline and tailset which he held on the move, well schooled. BPD in good competition today.
2nd Stewart & Binks Dughallmor I Am Legend, 12mth tri from a different mould to 1st, lovely houndy head with dark eye and pigment, good shoulders and spring of rib, well muscled quarters used to his advantage, unlucky to meet 1st in such good form and one I will watch with interest.
3rd Caple’s Morsefield Mudlark
1st DCC & BOB Craig’s Davricard Jacob, 13mth tan & white who I have admired from the ringside and didn’t disappoint, he oozes quality throughout. Lovely masculine head with dark eye and well set leathers, excellent length of neck and exceptional front assembly, round bone and tight feet, well ribbed back, level topline, strong quarters which he used to his advantage on the move. He is a delight to watch both coming and going and in profile. I was thrilled to hear he was shortlisted in the group and am sure it won’t be long before he wears his crown.
2nd Close’s Sparrowgill Smarty, 15mth tri with an all male head and lovely kind eye, straight front but would prefer a little more forechest, well ribbed back and muscled quarters, moved with drive from behind.
3rd Quinney-Spencer’s Quincerhound Oreo Bark
1st Lewis’ Milroc Polarized Catch in Fallowfield (Imp USA), tri of a nice size and shape, good shoulders and lovely bone and feet, good spring of rib with plenty of heart room, short coupled, excellent quarters which showed in his movement, a little too much head for me and would prefer a darker eye.
1st Woodcock’s Molesend Verdict at Roddwood
2nd Philpott’s Charterwood Storm, tri boy with a lot to like, well shaped head, good length of neck and well placed shoulders, level topline and good bend of stifle, would prefer him to be a bit more animated on the move but sound overall.
3rd Caple’s Morsefield Mudlark
1st Close’s Fallowfield Interesting, lovely head on this tri with dark eye and well set leathers, ample neck and good shoulders, a little long cast but well ribbed back, level topline and good tailset, moved with drive from his strong quarters.
2nd Murphy’s Black Royal at Rhosyndu, tri with a heavier head than 1st, dark eye and good pigment, a little upright in shoulder, good depth of chest, topline and tailset ok, needs to go up a gear on the move.
3rd Martin’s Charterwood Character
1st & RDCC Taylors Deaconfield Kingcraft, what a smart tri boy, lovely size and shape with everything in the right place, lovely head with kind eye and good pigment, excellent shoulders and forechest with legs well under, good depth of chest and well ribbed back, short coupled and well muscled quarters, moved true both ways and showing drive from behind. I’m sure he’ll be collecting the big green cards soon.
2nd Havards Annavah Phoenix, another smart tri, lovely masculine head with long leathers, excellent reach of neck, good depth of chest and firm elbows, level topline, strong quarters with well let down hocks, moved well in profile, just preferred the front movement of 1st coming on.
3rd Kingsland & Steven’s Redcap The Patriot
1st Raymond’s Dialynne Pitch Perfect, tri with a lot to like, he is a good size and shape, well shaped head framed by long leathers, good neck and straight front with lovely round bone and tight feet, well ribbed back and short coupled, good bend of stifle and second thigh, moved well in profile.
2nd Unger & Haussner-Unger’s Molesend Sandman, tan & white who I see is litter brother to my BP the last time I judged and has many of the same qualities, good head with dark eye and pigment, well laid shoulders, longer cast than 1st but well ribbed back, excellent bend of stifle and well muscled quarters than he used to his advantage on the move, close decision.
3rd Davies’ Barrvale Ganymede
A trio of tan & whites
1st Thornton’s CH Nedlaw Rupert With Maplelayne JW, 7yrs young! This boy was my BOB last time I judged and he still impresses, lovely shaped head with dark eye and long leathers, arched neck into correct shoulder, good depth of chest, short coupled, excellent topline held on the move, he powered around the ring showing reach and drive and couldn’t be denied BVD & BVIB.
2nd Mead’s Dialynne Cinnaman For Rosroden, 7yr old who doesn’t look or act his age, good head with well defined stop, lovely neck and shoulders, straight front and round bone, level topline and excellent tailset, another who moved well with drive.
3rd Fallon & Watson’s Newlin Anchor Chief ShCm AW(S)
1st Lovatts Bjornhagen Sweet Bay Leaf JW ShCm, tri who was Res in a strong limit class but deserved the class here, nice size and shape with pleasing head, good length of neck and well laid shoulders, straight front and firm elbows, short coupled and level topline, good bend of stifle and well let down hocks, moved better in this class
