1st Hill’s Dexbenella Double Trouble At Teignvalley. A very pleasing puppy who has a balanced head with fairly deep and square flews. Straight, well boned forequarters, reachy neck with lovely crest and short coupled body. His hindquarters need to develop a little however he put them to good use on the move; very merry. It was a pity that he was on his own. Shown and handled well. BD, BPIB.

1st. Kibby’s Trimere Turn Back Time. What a lovely girl she is. Full of quality with the prettiest head and dark hazel eyes showing her kind disposition. She is compact and balanced with a good length of neck and well laid shoulders, good spring of rib and short coupled. She holds her shape well on the move and goes away showing a clean pair of heels. Beautifully presented. BSB and Special Beginners Group 2. Well done.

1st Stevens’ Saturnii Cartoons Be My Valentine At Bumblecorn. She is better to go over than at first look but she was carrying some extra weight which made her lose her shape a tad. She has a very pretty head, excellent forehand, plenty of depth and a very good turn of stifle. Very good on the move.

1st Corbett’s Trimere Time Fly's. What a wonderful example of the breed she is and typifies the breed standard. When posed she totally filled my eye with her flowing lines and strong, compact body. She has the raciness that sets this breed apart from the rest of the Spaniel breeds and is so comfortable on the stack being neither too long nor too short. In outline she flows from the tip of her nose to the tip of her tail and has strength in body with a well developed chest and good ribbing. Her hind quarters are strong, muscular and broad with a moderate bend of stifle. On the move she totally comes alive and covers plenty of ground with her typical ESS action swinging her forelegs straight forward from the shoulder. Her head which is framed by its well set ears is utterly beautiful with almond shaped eyes and such a gentle expression revealing her friendly and biddable nature. She is presented to perfection and is totally at one with her handler. A future star if ever I saw one. BB & BOB.

2nd Kibby’s Trimere Taylor Maid at Pinhays. This kennel consistently turns out beautiful bitches and this one is typical of their type; elegant, balanced, compact and strong with a lovely head and eye. She has a terrific front and stands on tight, well rounded feet. First rate presentation. Moves on an easy stride but doesn’t quite have the hind action of the winner. RBB.

1st Williams & Toublic’s Cobhay Fancy Phlox. She was carrying some extra weight today which detracted from her overall shape and made her lack the required raciness. That said she has good head planes, good angulation fore and aft, big ribs and stands on excellent feet.

1st Corbett’s Sh Ch Trimere Taylor Swift. Excellent balance with good length of leg, well developed chest, length and return of upper arm placing her legs well under her body. Plenty of heart and lung room and well muscled quarters. Oozes quality and type but by the time we got to this class the heat in the tent was almost unbearable for dogs and handlers and so she flagged a little.

2nd Crouch’s Trimere Timeless With Kassan. She has a lovely head with rounded skull and ears set on level with her beautiful eyes. She was presented in good coat and condition but is slightly longer in hock than the winner so didn’t have the same drive.

3rd Williams & Toublic’s Cobhay Fancy Phlox

1st Williams & Toublic’s Cobhay Dazzling Azalea. She has a lovely feminine head, is tight at elbow and has terrific muscle tone. Moves very well with reach and excellent drive. BV.
