Quite a challenge to sort these out, I thought the bitches were much better for depth of quality. I was surprised at how many had soft coats, some were too stylized. Tail carriage also was a concern, with a few almost flat on the back.

1st: 3467 SHENNAN, Miss V Ashiblack Caviar - RCC
Goes round the ring full of his own importance with a lovely action. He is just off square. Pleasing head with good skull, super eye and expression. Good turn up of chin. Medium neck. Ultra moderate in his angulation. He can firm in topline and be tidier out and back. Harsh jacket. Tail comes over a little too much on move, less so in the challenge. He presents such a good outline and full of personality. BP & RCC
