Junior Bitch (3,0)

1st Zadehs FAYNAD YELLOW PRIMROSE – 13 mth old fawn who was my star of the day, lovely size & bone, and still feminine, she just reminded me of the Mastiffs I used to see years ago when there were some numbers about, and she didn’t disappoint me when I went over her, she has a beautiful head, with correct skull, good ear set, short muzzle and good stop, she had a lovely expression with deep coloured eyes, slightly arched neck going into nicely angulated shoulders, nice width on front, with straight legs, enough depth for age, well ribbed and wide loin, holding strong topline, nicely angulated rear, perhaps could have a touch more turn of stifle, but didn’t affect the overall picture, lovely on the move, pleased to award her the BCC and then she beat her kennel mate for BOB. Look forward to seeing how she progresses.

2nd Hazelwoods SWAINSI HOT TOTTY OF CRAIGLESTONE – 15 mth old brindle, another pleasing youngster, pleasing head overall, needs to develop in skull which should come with age, lovely eye, and good ear set, good muzzle, and jaw line, pleasing overall body, good bone, would like a touch more stifle on rear, good topline and tailset, pleasing on the move.

Post Graduate Bitch (1,0)

1st Thomas & Godfreys CADERMIST ELISABETH KINGROCK – Nearly 2 yr old fawn, good size & bone, lovely head, would like a touch darker eye for preference but nice and clean, good skull & ear carriage, needs to develop a touch more in muzzle, but still has time to do this, strong neck, nice width on front, good ribbing & loin, touch high on the rear at the moment, nice rear angulation with nice width of stifle, moved well. This bitch was the only one in the Challenge apart from my BCC winner who presented herself and moved well. I know it was a warm day but the handlers must make the most from their dogs, and because of this she was awarded the RCC.

1st Hardings MULALOO MIDWINTER SPIRIT – 20 mth old fawn lovely size & balance, good bone, but kept her femininity, pleasing head with good eye, correct skull and nice ear set, broad muzzle, nice width on front, could have a touch more behind elbow to complete picture, nice topline & tailset, would have like a touch more stifle on the rear, moved well.
