1st Mr A Pipes & Miss S Groves - Bushwacker Demetrio. 2 year old orange roan male with a little maturing still to do. Good masculine head without coarseness with correct diverging head planes and good amount of flew. Good length of neck into well laid back shoulder and good upper arm when placed correctly. Strong tight feet. Enough depth of chest but more to come certainly. Short coupled without being too short and a good topline and tail set. Good second thigh. Moved with reach and drive. I look forward to seeing him mature.
2nd Mrs C Bond - Teverlarni Keep The Faith. 17 month chestnut roan dog of good colour that excels in head. Very good diverging planes, good amount of work under the eyes with good soft expression and correct eye colour. Lovely medial furrow, not too broad in backskull. Good amount of double dewlap with correct length of neck. Good layback of shoulder would prefer better return of upper arm. Good depth of chest and correct topline. Good rear angulation. On the move had good reach and drive but unfortunately his tail carriage spoils the overall picture.
1st Miss R L Steel & Miss P A Steel - Sazmallin Beijing Boy To Juhua. Mature 4 year old chestnut roan of overall excellent type. Super head in profile with correct head planes, good depth of flew but slightly broad in backskull. Good ear set of correct length, correct length of neck into excellent front assembly on legs with good substance and bone. Good neck into shoulder, good depth of chest and topline, but too long in loin. Good angulation would prefer a little more second thigh. Tail carriage a little high but forgivable due to superb side gait. Best Dog.

2nd Mr J Beard - You Can Take Me For a Ride On Kellitcreed (Imp Hun). 10 month old orange roan bitch from a kennel I have long admired. Head of good type with excellent diverging planes, medial furrow and spongey nose overhanging the lips as desired. Good length of neck into well placed shoulder with a good return of upper arm allowing good reach on the move. Good substance but feet need to tighten. Good depth of chest with desired skirt. Topline a little soft at present due to her being very raw at this stage. Correct tail set off good croup carried as desired on the move. Would like more strength in second thigh. Moved with impressive side gait.

Would like a fraction more upper arm angulation. Good bone on nice tight feet. Good depth of chest and correct topline, with a strong moderate and correct length of loin and desired skirt. Better tail carriage than her brother and good angulation behind. Moved accurately fore and aft with good side gait. Reserve Best Bitch and Best Special Beginners.
1st M Dodd & T Hayes - Bushwacker Dolly Daydream. Lovely mature 3 year old orange roan bitch with so much to like. When stacked portrays the classic bracco outline, and for me the ideal size for a bitch. Good head with good expression, spongey nose overhanging lips with enough flew. Would like slightly more length of muzzle. Good ear set. Good neck into well placed shoulder with good upper arm. Legs well boned but feet could be tighter. Good depth of chest, with good topline and correct length of loin. Lovely skirt. Perfect second thigh with correct croup and tail set. Excellent movement in profile if a little untidy in front. Glad to award her Best of Breed.
2nd Ms C A & Mr S A Pearson - Kelevra Covo Di Ladri JW. A different type to 1 and although not my preference found it hard to fault her. Good head with feminine expression, good head planes and correct amount of flew. Good ear set of correct length. Good front angulation but would prefer better neck into shoulder. Just enough substance with good feet. Would like more depth of chest but this will come as she finishes maturing. Good topline with strong loin and excellent croup. Lovely rear angulation with good second thigh. Moved true fore and aft and showed good reach and drive in profile.

1st Mrs C Bond - Teverlarni Cama Da Rosas.
2nd Mrs A Worgan - Piccorino Peperoncina. Just 6 months old orange roan bitch with pretty feminine head. Super, correct head proportions, good ear set of correct length and double dewlap. Novice handler that did a sterling job at her first show. She stood still and moved well, just some little adjustments needed to get the most out of her. Still lots to like with good front assembly, good amount of bone, nice feet and correct skirt. Topline a little bum high at present but good group and depth of chest for one so young. Needs to strengthen up behind but this will come with time.
