1. Roberts’ Twybrook Noble Prince at Kogarahs. Less mature than 1 but felt he was right for his age, super colour and lovely coat nice tight feel lovely head and expression would perhaps prefer a slightly lower earset but really scores in ribs and is balanced for and rear moved well with ease and was a pleasure to assess. Unlucky not to be BP today.

2. Purser’s Twybrook Charming Prince. Really appealing exhibit with much to like more mature than one with a robust masculinity but incorrect in lovely front forelegs and a lovely depth of chest complimented a good presence of fore chest correct level top line and proportions being picky I would prefer a little more in skull under the eye – good angles rear and fore but more moderate to the rear moved well.

1. Wallis’ Gladsheim Veritas. Lovely mature exhibit beautifully presented and handled lovely size correct coat emerging benefits from equal length of upper arm and shoulder and well bent stifles lovely body and a great level top line nice proportions creating the classic outline pleasing head and expression with lovely appealing eye right amount of bone. One to watch I think, with lots of early promise.

2. See earlier class winner.

PGD 2(0)

1. Gutteridge’s Benitin Trojan. Pleasing exhibit a little squarer than I would prefer but scores in body lovely head with plenty of work under the eye even head proportions super hard level back which was retained on the move balanced for a rear and sound coming and going and going around was rather vocal today – clearly pleased to be here!

2. Suiter’s Genetika Rumpelstilskin. This dog really scores in type with super proportions being longer than his height showed very well with a plenty expression lovely coat and kind eye would prefer his feet to be tighter and today regrettably he was missing some coat which cost him higher honours.

OD 5(1)

1. Davies’ Millhanger Kemboy. Attractive exhibit with nothing overdone scores in head with correct proportions and pleasing muzzle good ear lovely deep chest with well sprung ribs longer than he is tall and well bent stifles tight feet and a great coat showed himself very well with win a good class didn’t disappoint on the move. In the challenge I felt the veteran dog had more freedom on movement.

2. Guy’s Gladsheim Eleodoro. Slightly smaller exhibit than one but not incorrect topline had a tendency to appear that is sloped on occasion scores in body and nice amount of bone longer than one broader skull than some but not correct lovely disposition and moved positively soundly and in a coordinated fashion unlucky to meet one today.

3. Suiter’s Chriskoois Octavius at Genetika.

VD 1(0)

1. Williams’ Cairnbraid Onwaba Lukimbi of Gladsheim (imp BEL). 7-year-old male not remotely showing his age lovely top line good proportions well off for bone but still a nice size over super coat and in good condition I thought his head and expression were quite wonderful and complemented by a lovely lower ear set scores in body and moved well not always making the best of himself on the stack but in the glimpses where he did he clearly quality through and through.

PB 2(0)

1. Mar-Gerrison’s Valkira Whispering Hope. Petite bitch with lovely attitude I preferred her over 1 based on her classic outline and correct length to height proportions lovely body and a great coat emerging pretty classic head and classic and moved well will be interesting to watch her develop.

2. Stewart’s Twybrook Sweet Princess. This puppy showed with a ‘look at me attitude’ which was hard to resist today as puppies sometimes do she looked a little leggy which cost her that said she has lovely head and expression is balanced with lovely bone tight feet and is balanced with her shoulder to upper arm ratio lovely level back many would envy for one so young sound on the move.

JB 2(0)

1. Jones’ Gladsheim Savanna. Another petite bitch but oh she scores in outline she is classic with correct forequarters out of coat today which was a shame but balanced with body and a lovely head and expression you really have to get your hands on to appreciate the body and lovely slightly rounded skull cleaning and straight forward on the move a pleasure to judge.

2. Stewart’s Twybrook Sweet Princess.

1. Stewart/Straaijer’s Qunack’s Favor Light for Twybrook (imp NLD). Caught my eye immediately put on a great show and showed off to best advantage classic in outline good body in good condition balanced angles fore and rear and correct body proportions too she didn’t disappoint on the move and headed this strong class it was a pleasure to make her my winner.

2. Mar-Gerrison’s Gladsheim Willow at Valkira. Really liked this bitch she oozes a type which I loved her head and expression were excellent and she’s a lovely size with a great top line she moved well too she just has a tendency to appear a little straight behind which unfortunately cost her higher honours in due she may settle into herself but in the meantime her outgoing exuberance is infectious.

3. Norman’s Kerfkooiker Pandora.

OB 7(0)

1. Johnson’s Valleyrise Illustration. This bitch didn’t appeal at first glance, but she settled into herself and relaxed and she just got better and better level top line good angles for and rear she really scores with the presence of stop without being overdone she also had an expression and eye which was appealing and not staring well muscles in super condition she looked like she could go all day was sounder coming and going 2.

2. Suiter’s Genetika Wake Up Aurora. My class winner at first glance a little overcoated for my taste lovely ear and super neck she really looks a picture on the stack and is just my type today whilst she moved soundly, she was less positive coming and going which cost her higher honours.

3. Williams’ Gladsheim Arunika.

VB 5(1)

1. Daniella vom Thyrowberg to Gladsheim (imp DEU) ShCM VW. The type I had been looking for a soundness and condition that could not be denied I thought she was quite special and not remotely showing her 10 years she was a pleasure to assess lovely level top line great dentitions nice size and cost and lovely expression her balanced and pose was remarkable, and I thoroughly enjoyed assessing her.

2. Suiter’s Cirtaps Hertogin Freya Van Qira-T at Genetika. Unlucky to meet one scores in proportions in body with a lovely eye and correct skull and muzzle super angles and a condition that many younger exhibits could aspire too she pushed 1 all the way and together they might quite the pair.

3. Guy’s Cirtaps Prinses Bynton Ida Rose Mk (imp SWE).

SpBB 3(0)

1. Norman’s Kerfkooiker Pandora.

2. Jones’ Gladsheim Savanna.

3. Dunford’s Millhanger Victoria Plum.
