1st: MANSER, Master Harrison & MANSER, Master Hugo Nujax Run Your Own Race. 11 month old Black Male, who excels in his depth of front and rear quarters, huge forechest and fantastic spring of rib for one so young. He has a beautifully chiselled head with a good stop, beautiful soft expression and just the right amount in the back skull. Beautiful plush foreface. Huge teeth in a well presented bite. He has well laid shoulders, rock hard topline on the move and stack, nice balanced length of neck. Short loin. Moves with plenty of reach and drive, albeit he is a slight wild child at times but couldn’t be denied his RDCC and BP today.

2nd: MORRIS, Mrs B Mycalleys Sirocco. A raw six month old Black and Tan male. Little playful on the go round, and to mature a little more to meet his class companion. He has a beautiful head with a lovely plush muzzle. Just needs to mature a little more in body, he moves well when he concentrates. His tail at times tends to fly a bit high, but not concerningly.

1st: THOMPSON, Miss Rebecca Artemis to the moon at Lunartails. 8 month old choc and tan dog. Very playful and trying his handler at all times. Plush head, good length of muzzle and balance to overall skull shape and size. Slightly light eye for me. Good depth of forechest, needs a little more weight on him, moves with reach and drive. Just need to mature in his brain and settle.

1st: SHEPPARD, Mrs V J Nasailleen on a mission at shadowview. A two year old black and tan male with a classical head and muzzle, with plenty of plushness. Good depth of chest and ribs. Short loin. Moves well with reach and drive in the class, presented in top class. Was in my consideration for RDCC.

2nd: KIRTON, Mrs D & STANTON, Mr M & DACKOMBE, Ms F Sabisabi Iroquois eyota. A two year old red and white male that I have admired for a while. He is a quality male, but I would like a little more plushness in foreface, and width of muzzle. He has a good depth of forechest and spring of rib. Short in loin. He has a good coat which is presented in first class order. He carries good on the move, though had a tendency to throw his head back into his shoulders at time which ruined his overall outline at time.

3rd: PALMER, Mr Neville & PALMER, Mrs Karen Arrowbien Frankie Goes To Combleywood

1st: BOARDMAN, Miss Monica & BOARDMAN, Mrs Margaret AKC Ch Am Ch Ir Ch Riverwood Silhouette Fast Forward. 2 year old Black and Tan male. Beautiful head with classical features, well chiselled soft expression, beautiful plush muzzle and not too much throatiness. Good depth of forechest and spring of ribs. Nice length in loin. Covers the ground at his own speed, but demonstrates the ability to cover it well and with effective reach and drive. My Best of Breed today and an honour to award him his first CC.

2nd: HARRIS, Mr Will Zarcrest Hot Chocolate, Holland Cup Winner 23. 4yr old Chocolate and White male. Little longer in foreface than 1, and a little less plushness in foreface. Beautiful length of neck, well laid shoulders, little longer in loin that 1. Carried well on the move.

PB (5 Entries) Abs: 1

1st: PALMER, Mr Neville & PALMER, Mrs Karen TricaJon's Parti Politics at Combleywood. 11 month old tricolour bitch. A petite bitch, with a pleasing head, good muzzle and depth of stop. Plush lips. Good lay of shoulder albeit on stack looks shorter in neck than she actually is. Short coupling. Once she has the confidence she moves OK and was a credit to her handler who showed her to advantage. BPB.

2nd: MORRIS, Mrs B & JEFFERSON, Mrs R Mycalley Koko. 6 month old raw Black bitch. This is a little star of the future I predict, albeit raw today. Beautiful head with soft expression, albeit a hint of naughtiness in her eye. Lovely shoulders, nice spring of ribs. Well coupled. Carries well on the move with rock hard topline just to fill into her frame and mature with age.

3rd: KIRTON, Mrs D & DACKOMBE, Ms F Sabisabi Apache Catori

1st: CLAY, Miss Danika Cutiepooch lily landini. 7 month old Black bitch. Lovely head, just not best of toplines. But moves with reach and drive on go round.

1st: CLAY, Mrs G Belmilla nothing on you cutiepooch. 14 month old Black bitch. Little too short in muzzle for me and in neck. She certainly challenged her handler. She has a good spring of rib, a good coupling.

1st: LANGTON, Mrs Yvonne & MORRIS, Mrs Victoria Sabisabi Iroquois Tiva at jennobar. Red and White bitch. Overall she is a good picture on the stack, and moves Ok round the ring. She had a great forechest and ribs, she has a good length of loin. She has a tendency to carry her tail a little too high, and I would like more plushness and definition in her head.

2nd: FRANKLIN, Mr B Nadezhda Natsii Iz Mazhornogo Lada at Dreamcast (IMP RUS). Blue Roan bitch. A real feminine and proportioned head for her overall balance of size. She is a well made bitch of solid foundation, good rib and forechest. On the move today she kept going a little flat at times, and I have seen her move more lively before.

3rd: KIRTON, Mrs D & DACKOMBE, Ms F miranda flower iz mazhornogo lada at sabisabi (IMP RUS).

1st: BOYLE, Miss Zara Sh Ch Zarcrest Panda Monium. Black and white bitch. A well presented bitch, shown immaculately. She covers the ground with exceptional ease, clearing reach and drive in abundance and fluidly today. Her head balance is a little longer in foreface than back skull for me, but she has a great depth of forechest and spring of ribs. She commanded the ring today, and deservedly walked away with the BCC her fifth I believe.

2nd: MORRIS, Mrs B Mycalleys China Doll. A wild child of a black and tan today, and was shown to her advantage by her handler. She is of a type on the stack, and delivers a pleasing outline to look at. She is well made in front and has a great depth and spring in all the right places. She has a good strong back end which when she settled and wasn’t being wild she used to her advantage. She carries her tail a tad high on occasion. Her stubbornness in the challenge could be overlooked when considering her other qualities. RBCC.

3rd: CAUNCE-PARTRIDGE, Mrs Karen & DRAY, Miss Courtney Yankeetank Slave to Love.
