EAST KENT CANINE SOCIETY FEBRUARY 2ND 2020 

GORDON SETTERS. 

POST GRADUATE (4) 

1. GRAYLACIER CLASSIC DESIGN. At just coming up two years, this youngster has lots of potential. I loved him for outline, for balance and for excellent depth. He has a super flowing outline and great feet. He covers the ground easily and precisely on the move. In the challenge for BOB I just preferred the head shape, expression and coat of the Open winner, but he was definitely close-up and should have a rosy future. Reserve BOB.

2. HERNWOOD JACK O’LANTERN BY RACKENS JW. A favourite of mine who has done well under me before. Many of the same remarks apply but today, although I preferred his head-shape to the winner, he’s far less mature in body and needs to fill his frame. I am sure that this will come and he too will have a strong future. 

3. LAINNIREACH ORIGINAL TONIC AT CARADILIS 

OPEN (4,1) 

1. KYUNA OLYMPIC ARROW AT TYMORA ShCM. At 7 years, this is a dog who has gotten better and better as time has gone by. I liked him as a puppy and still do today. Solidly made, he is balanced and holds a strong top-line, has a lovely masculine head with a keen eye and expression. He moved out well-enough to hold off the challenge from the youngster to take BOB. 

2. GRAYLACIER PORTREATH. A very good head here and once settled, a good flowing outline. For me he just doesn’t have quite the depth of front action of his brother in the Post Graduate class. 

3. LOCKSHEATH TRUE BALOO.
