MPD(2,0) 

1.McCarthy’s Nagshall Santa Cruz,nicely shaped has good front anglulation and width on the move.Would like a shade more body development,good width to hindquarters,and nice overall shape. 

2.Pike & Carter’s Zarcrest Flash Harry at Breezelyn,Like his head type but again not the front angulation of 1,Narrower thorax and topline could have been firmer on the move.Moved with a little too much width.

MPB(5,2) 

1.Baler’s Jentiki Dot Com,still to gain confidence,but won here on her type and overall shape.Looked better stacked on the table as she was reluctant  to extend her hindquarters but has a lovely typy head and well developed body for her age.Moved soundest here.
