Thank you for a very enjoyable entry with plenty to go at. I was delighted with my line-ups which comprised lovely individuals full of quality – no flatcatchers here.

2nd: 5850 WALLIS, Mr & Mrs D & P & LEVENE Miss A Torbeck Penrhyn Bay Masculine Tri, who moved out well with purpose, likeable and presented to advantage but just preferred the tighter feet and outline of winner

Class 2110 SBD (1 Entries) Abs: 0 1st: 5807 CHARLTON Miss J Petranella Jubilee Jester Repeat

Class 2111 MPD (1 Entries) Abs: 0 1st: 5857 WHITWORTH Mrs Kingsheath Finn Balor At Freworth Very raw baby, eyes need to darken and tighten but skull and foreface correct for age, ok for bone and nicely bodied with good rib, good quality of coat, moved quite accurately for age

Class 2112 PD (4 Entries) Abs: 2 A very likely pair headed by

1st: 5830 MITCHELL Mr & Mrs D & J Peasblossom Xanti smart, active and very typical B/W. Put down in beautiful condition, just gleamed with health, stands so balanced and moves as a really good one should, lovely head pattern, beautiful expression from dark well set and shaped eye, lovely forehand with good shoulder and upperarm, well ribbed, good underline, shapely and correct rear assembly. One to watch BP and PG3 

2nd: 5818 GREEN Mr K & Mrs C Kennair Diamond Geezer Not quite as forward as 1 but that is an observation not a criticism, growth patterns vary, he appeals for type and has all the essentials of a really nice one in a good smooth moving, well constructed wrapper, should finish well

Class 2113 JD (3 Entries) Abs: 0 

1st: 5817 GRAY Mr & Mrs N & S Trimere Time Tracker Upstanding, racy individual, attractive head of good proportions and pleasing expression, really liked his neckline and well placed shoulder, is well developed in body with correctly sprung ribs and firm muscular loin, carries himself well and moves with ease

2nd: 5816 GLASS Mrs E Gunring My Boy Honest and workmanlike presenting with good outline, satisfactory all through, expression good but could be a little more refined in head and at the throat, well conditioned 3rd: 5827 KEELY Mr & Mrs M & K Alhambian Bon Scott

Class 2114 PGD (2 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: 5833 MORGANS Mrs N J Kennair Dreaming On A Star Well proportioned example, good body shape with correct depth and width of chest, good ribs, firm topline, strong loin, nicely made quarters, uses himself well on the move

2nd: 5834 OSBOURNE Mr P W Pendarlow Peter Pan With Braego preferred 1 for length of leg, but nevertheless enjoyed the typical freedom of action exhibited by this one which came from his sensible construction, presented to advantage 

Class 2115 LD (3 Entries) Abs: 1

1st: 5814 EYEINGTON Mr & Mrs S & J Meadowdale Storm Trooper B/W Clearly superior sort who enters the ring with real presence, has all the qualities I seek and is free from exaggeration, lovely skull and foreface and that typical soft expression that would fetch the ducks off the water, ideal reach of neck and well laid shoulder, good legs and feet set properly under the body, beautifully and correctly let down behind, shapely body, fit and in beautiful nick, moved with reach and drive but with economy and looked as if he could go all day CC and BOB

2nd: 5841 TAUBMAN Mrs K C Meonstoke Hawthorn mature, honest dog of nice type, with reasonable outline, well bodied and presented, could be tighter in feet but I liked his daisy cutting action and lovely outlook on the move

Class 2116 OD (5 Entries) Abs: 2 Such an interesting class topped by

1st: 5842 TOPLISS Mrs T E Sh Ch Beresford Night Train a lovely masculine example who epitomises the standard and must appeal to aficionados, super head and expression, good depth and width of chest, straight front, good, normal angulation throughout, lovely backline, moved true fore and aft and had the freedom of action that comes from good construction, my one ‘if only’ was that he would not quite relax and use his shapely neck standing but he certainly did when moving and something had to divide my top two, nevertheless a very worthy RCC

2nd: 5804 BOTT, Mr R P & SAVELL Mrs C Sh Ch Art-wave's Standing Ovation For Allenie (Imp) high class contender and unsurprisingly already crowned, has that lovely air of intelligent activity that appeals, I enjoyed watching him cover the ground, pleases in most respects, with good conformation all through but I just loved the ultra typical outline of 1

3rd: 5805 CASEY, Mr E & CAVALLO Mr C Aust Supreme Ch Sandicam Royal Escort (Imp) Aus

Class 2117 VB (3 Entries) Abs: 1

1st: 5809 CORBETT Miss S J Olliwa Ruthless With Trimere (Cze Imp) TAF very feminine with just the right amount of substance, pretty head, good frame generally, well ribbed and shapely body, good moving, came back to me as truly as any youngster and the only indication that she was a veteran was the slight slackness in her topline on occasion, a very nice example

2nd: 5822 HARRIS Mr M & Mrs J Rosannoch Alexandrite At Coastalglows Carrying a little excess weight but was not disgraced and was certainly no slouch moving exhibiting some real reach and drive which I appreciated

Class 2120 PB (7 Entries) Abs: 1 Some lovely ones for the future headed by 

1st: 5808 COKELL Mrs H Carlyquinn Kisses Of Fire sparkling, nicely balanced youngster who has all one can ask for at this age, lovely feminine expression, good legs and well padded feet, head well set on to good neck and shoulder, good depth of body, excellent rear assembly, confident easy mover 

2nd: 5840 SMITH Mr R J Melverly Lil Dancer beautiful exhibit of quality, has super head proportions being a shade shorter in foreface than 1, correct size and bone, well bodied, pressed winner hard but preferred the more moderate hindquarters of 1 3rd: 5860 WILLIAMS, Mrs J & TOUBLIC Mrs D & Miss P Cobhay Fancy Phlox 

 Res: 5845 TOPLISS Mrs T E Beresford Guiding Light 

 VHC: 5824 HOUSE Mrs C A Gleadsbury Dynamite 

Class 2121 JB (5 Entries) Abs: 0 a very creditable class boding well for the future, my winners strode out beautifully, splitting hairs but

1st: 5810 CORBETT Miss S J Trimere Taylor Swift a classy junior of very typical make and shape and well put together all through, most attractive in head, and has that confident outlook that epitomises the breed, stands balanced effortlessly

2nd: 5806 CASEY, Mr E & CAVALLO Mr C Eastriding Sheer Love For Sandicam loved her head properties and timeless melting expression, super forehand construction and well ribbed and shapely body, presented well in tip-top order

3rd: 5813 CROUCH Mrs A E Trimere Timeless With Kassan

Res: 5829 KIBBY Mrs J I Trixhund Scarlett Ribbons

Class 2122 PGB (7 Entries) Abs: 2

1st: 5831 MITCHELL Mr & Mrs D & J Peasblossom Whisper perhaps a shade longer cast than her kennelmates but maintains her outline beautifully both standing and moving, so feminine in expression with skull and foreface answering the standard well, super straight front with best of legs and feet, in super condition for body and coat and really uses herself to move with purpose

2nd: 5853 WEST Mrs D Grosbreuil Abricot Regal good sort presentedin very nice order, I liked the headpiece of 3 but moving this one really displayed her qualities to advantage and scored in action over 3

3rd: 5835 OSBOURNE Mr P W Petranella Exclusive With Braego 

Res: 5861 WILLIAMS, Mrs J & TOUBLIC Mrs D & Miss P Cobhay Dazzling Azalea

VHC: 5851 WALLIS, Mr & Mrs D & P & LEVENE Miss A Pendarlow Tiana

Class 2123 LB (10 Entries) Abs: 3 A treat of a class to go over with small margins between my placings making this a difficult but enjoyable task

1st: 5820 HANCOCK Mrs L Meadowdale Jedi Of Hanknight a classy mature exhibit with just the right amount of strength and substance, presents a lovely picture in profile and handles well on closer inspection, very feminine, good head qualities with excellent eye and ear placement, smashing legs and feet, shapely all through, let down nicely form hip to hock which she used to advantage moving, a serious contender for top honours today

2nd: 5828 KEELY Mr & Mrs M & K Shipden Alhambian Diana Dors striking exhibit, sadly in her petticoat but her sheer quality was there for all to see, excels in breed type, well constructed, good body, proper normal angulation, blessed with beautifully moulded head and winning expression, fit and moved out well

3rd: 5843 TOPLISS Mrs T E Beresford Night Class

Res: 5803 ALLEN , Mr A C & ALLEN, Mr G T & GLENDINNING Mrs Plaiglen Dazzled By Allenie

VHC: 5854 WEST Mrs D Meonstoke Cherry Blossom At Grosbreuil

Class 2124 OB (10 Entries) Abs: 2 another class of distinction with my chief progagonists all happy, free moving exhibits

1st: 5832 MITCHELL, Mr & Mrs D J & PAYNE Mr K Peasblossom Ophelia This outgoing, mature bitch is a gorgeous example of the breed at it’s best and ticks all the boxes of the standard, lovely outline both standing and moving. So feminine, with an air of mischief, I love her intelligent expression from her dark well shaped eye, super neckline flowing into a well placed shoulder with good upperarm, good width and depth of body, rib cage, loin and strong, shapely quarters, she moved so freely and positively and never stopped showing. I understand she has had weight problems in the past but she was put down in superb bloom and condition and I would visit her health spa with alacrity. Just lovely and when I discovered her breeding I was unsurprised that she had appealed so greatly as her sire was a favourite CC

2nd: 5819 GREEN Mr K & Mrs C Kennair I Am I Said very unlucky to meet 1, also from the top drawer, beautifully proportioned and well constructed and moved accordingly, carries herself with style but nothing overdone, hope she gets her title soon RCC

Res: 5811 CORBETT Miss S J Sh Ch Trimere Ticket Maid
