Veteran D or B (1):

1. Eldred’s Bramalodge Amiety at Derdeldash, 9 years bitch shown in good condition, pleasing head, coat and length, went happily;

Puppy (2):

1. Eldred and Dickinson’s Dakotadax Check Mate, black/tan bitch of 9 months, overall nicely constructed with pleasing head, body and hindquarters, quite well made in front, has a pleasing outline which she maintained on the move where she is sound and goes with drive, BB and BP;

2. Simpson’s Cumhaill Cream, 10 months male with pleasing head, shown in very good condition, well handled, not the topline of 1;
