City of Birmingham Championship Show 2022


A pleasure to judge this lovely entry at such a well organised show. I was delighted to watch my Best of Breed winner go on to win such a strong group under Ronnie Blomme. Temperaments were first class throughout.

SBD (1 Entries) Abs: 0

1st:RICHARDSON’s Cheyenn Makeeta

Upstanding LH, 4 years old with happy disposition. Balanced in head with kind eye. Straight, well boned front, well laid shoulders. Firm and level in topline. He moved freely showing drive from behind. A pity that he did not stay to compete for best SB.

1st: RAYNER & MASKELL’s Sh Ch Gunalt Academy of Raystans

This eight year old presented a super profile stacked and moved well as you would expect from his construction. Strongly made through but so well balanced and good to go over. He has a refined head and a strong neck of good length. Well ribbed body and firm topline. He has strong well angulated quarters and was presented in good body and condition. My RCC winner from last time I judged, today’s Best Veteran.

MPD (1 Entries) Abs: 0


Promising youngster. Balanced head which will only improve as it breaks. Good length of neck leads to well boned front. He is well ribbed with good length to his body. Plenty of rear angulation. He moved well up and down the ring. Just needs to tighten in profile but this will come with maturity. Should go on to do well.

PD (2 Entries) Abs: 1


Well grown for his 9 months. Super head with lovely expression. Strong neck flows into well laid shoulders. Well ribbed with good depth for his age. Good rear angulation with well-turned stifles and hocks are nicely let down. He just needs to settle on the move to do himself full justice.

JD (1 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: SIMPSON’s Sireva Emeyefive

Super youngster who is already making his mark in the breed. Presents a lovely, well balanced outline on the stack and moves well, especially in profile. Balanced in head, not overdone in any way. Good reach of neck leads to well angulated shoulders lying close to his body. Good length of ribs, firm over his loins and level in topline. He has strong quarters with well-turned stifles and good width to his second thigh. Quality through. Pushed hard for top honours, just preferred the maturity of my CC and RCC winners today.

YD (2 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: MATTHEWS’ Silvermews Solaris

Refined 15 months old. Pleasing head with good reach of neck. Well placed shoulders. Firm and level in topline. He has good rear angulation and a nice width to his thighs. He just needs to settle on the move and fill out in rib. If he does, he should go on to do well.

2nd: MARTIN’s Deifstock Deja Vu For Teufel

Stronger made through. Well-developed head with correct stop and well set ears. Well boned through. He has a lovely turn of stifle and was in good body. Just preferred the length of the winner here.

1st: ROBSON’s Robricci Aramis

So well made all through. Strong but balanced head with good length of muzzle. Clean, well-muscled neck leads nicely into well angulated shoulders. Good length and depth to his ribs. Strong through his quarters, hocks are well let down. He moved well when really extended.

1st: HUNTER’s Braefell Dragonfly

Caught my eye at the start of this class and continued to impress. Super outline with well-shaped head, well placed ears and refined expression. Strong in neck with well laid shoulders, elbows nicely tucked in without compromising width of chest. Good width and depth to his chest showing good length of rib giving the desired balance of body. Strong over his quarters with lovely width of second thigh. He moved with power and strength covering the ring well. In good muscular condition. RCC. Deserves his title.

2nd: BENNETT’s Deifstock Dandini

At five years is mature and has a wonderfully proportioned head, just what I look for in this noble breed. Well placed ears and keen expression. Clean neck of good length leads to well angulated shoulders. He is well ribbed and has good rear angulation enabling him to move well from behind. Just preferred the length of body and side movement of the winner today.

Plenty of width over his quarters providing powerful movement. In good coat and muscular condition. Handled to get the best out of him. CC and Best of Breed. Delighted to watch him win a strong group.
