1st MRS N J MORGANS - KENNAIR DREAMING ON A STAR

Well bodied LW boy, no exaggerations, masculine head, just a little broad in back scull for me but has good eye colour and depth of muzzle. He is balanced with good depth and substance, good bone and well turned stifle. His movement was steady and true.

2nd MR M & MRS K KEELY - ALHAMBIAN BON SCOTT

This boy is a bit too rangy for me and I’d like more of him all through, that said he is of good size with masculine head, another that is a little broad for my taste, his eye colour is good but the shape could be better. He has a good length of neck and a level top line. His movement today was a bit erratic.

Wow! Two quality exhibits and two very worthy champions.

1st MR R P & MRS C BOTT & SAVELL - SH CH ART-WAVES STANDING OVATION FOR ALLENIE (IMP SWE)

Super LW who just shone today. Lovely balanced outline, beautiful head with enough work in it, good eye shape and dark hazel in colour. Strong neck into well laid shoulders, with good return of upper arm. He has depth and substance, good spring to rib, lovely bone and tight round feet. On the move he pulled out all the stops – head up and he was away, he was driving from the rear in parallel and true for and aft. Put down to perfection, and just had that added ‘look at me’ attitude today which won him the class and BOB. So pleased to then watch him go G3 in a quality group.

2nd MR S & MRS W WALKER - SH CH DEXBENELLA ATTICUS FINCH

Another quality exhibit, who could just as easily have taken the class today, I was truly splitting hairs. He has a beautiful head with melting expressing as he looked at me with his lovely dark eyes. Good length of neck with well angled forquarters, with ample forechest. Straight front good bone and feet. Lovely substance, which is a must for me with good depth of chest and well angle rear , his movement, was accurate correctly throwing his front legs forward from the shoulder. RBD

1st MRS H COKELL - CARLYQUINN KISSES OF FIRE JW

Well presented LW who has a pretty feminine head, which is balanced with good eye shape and colour. She has a good length of neck into level topline. For me she is a tad long and I would prefer a little more depth of chest. She has good front and rear angulation and she moved out well, although her rear movement could be tidier.

2nd MRS CLAYDON - NINEOAKS VIENNESE WALTZ

Feminine LW. rangier than one and another that I’d like more of all through. She has a pleasant head, enough neck decent angulations front and rear. She has good width of thigh with moderately bent stifle, moved okay on lovely neat feet.

1st MRS P, MR D & MISS A WALLIS & LEVENE - PENDARLOW TIANA

Nice bitch that I have judged before. Good outline, with a decent head peace, but it would benefit from more strength in muzzle. She has good eye shape and colour. Decent length of neck and good front and rear angulations, enough depth and substance for me. Nothing over done she moved well but was a little close behind.

2nd MRS A CROUCH - TRIMERE TIMELESS WITH KASSAN

Pretty girl, up to size, balanced feminine head enough length of neck, into level topline straight front, lovely neat round feet. Decent rear angulations and she moved out well.

1st MR S & MRS W WALKER - BERESFORD NIGHT NURSE AT DEXBENELLA

Love this BW girl, have admired her from the ring side and wasn’t disappointed today. She has the best of heads, feminine, balanced, with the correct almond shape dark eyes, and an expression that just pulled me in. She is just right for size, has a lovely outline, strong neck of good length, super depth in body, well sprung ribs and substance to match. Straight front, lovely bone and the best of feet. She is well muscled with good width of thigh and moderately turned stifle. Covered the ground well with her free easy action and drive from the rear. BB & BOS

2nd MRS L HANCOCK - MEADOWDALE JEDI OF HANKNIGHT

Another nice BW although from a different mould to 1. She has a lovely balanced head with good eye shape and colour, good width and depth to muzzle giving the melting expression that I look for. Good length of neck, into level topline.Good angulations front and rear with good bone and neat feet. She moved well driving from her well muscled rear quarters. RBB
