An excellent entry of dogs, my line up for BOB was a headache in a good way
1st Reffton Tibalt at Whipsearle (imp ESP) 12 month fawn dog with a kind eye and strong underjaw. Firm arched neck flowed smoothly into shoulder, deep in rib with a lovely curvy outline. Moved out strong and true with good forward reach. Just not quite the finished picture when it came to the challenge.
2nd Crosscrop Proud Mary. Fawn and white bitch with the prettiest of heads and a true outline, balanced all through with correct bone and rib she had a strong rear action but not quite as confident on the move as my winner
3rd Nicolas Star
4th Springfern Wild Thing at Crosscop such a shame this baby could only go into a PGrad class BP
Limit (3, 1abs)
1st Crosscop If I Can Dream Mature fawn dog of moderate size with a lovely elegant head, firm arched neck leading to a well set front with deep ribs flowing nicely to a gently arched loin. His footfall was clean and true just carried his tail a fraction high for me.
2nd Langshor Some Girls Will Feminine bitch with a well set eye, pleasing profile appearance with good outline and depth of brisket, she has a fair length of rib and enough bone. Not as positive in rear action today.
Open (4, 1abs)

Clean through the neck and shoulder with a good length to upper arm deep well sprung ribs under a firm top line which she kept well on the move.

Her movement was a joy to watch, clean and true with power from the rear BOB Group 4
2nd Sudeo Rousayan at Lillyview A larger black bitch who is well put together with a good length of muzzle and width of skull. She has good bone and well sprung rib and plenty of width to her thigh. She is good in profile action but not quite the drive of 1st today.
3rd Scotsdyke Marchbank Boy
1st Flyenpyg Porky Pig JW OSW. Upstanding, animated yellow dog with a cracking head but didn't always use his ears to best advantage, loved his overall make and shape, he has a powerful neck leading to a well made front and deep well sprung ribs. Moved out with power just not as settled when it came to the challenge.
2nd Shaymiloney Schinus Afinmore Larger sized black which was a little too much for me but he is nicely made with a good head and kind expression. He has bone to match his size and a firm topline which he held well on the move.
1st Shebelta Sweet Charlotte A most elegant cream bitch with a beautiful head, the best of pigmentation and a cheeky dark eye. She has lovely angulation front and rear and the correct ratios of body to leg. Moved out with a lovely action just a little immature when it came to the group but one I will watch with interest. BOB
1st Shebelta Sweet Charlotte (repeat)
2nd Simon Bassett De Ria Vela for Beinangus JW (imp ESP) Masculine strongly built dog with a kind eye and plenty of backskull, he was shorter in neck than I prefer, shoulders were ok but would benefit from a little more length to upperarm. He has a broad well shaped thigh and presented drive on the move.
1st Shebelta Sweet Charlotte (repeat)
2nd Happier De Ria Vela at Beinangus (imp ESP) Another strongly built dog with a masculine head and width of backskull. He has lots of bone and substance with deep well sprung ribs, He showed a good action in profile, not as clean as my winner on the back and too.

1st Kattendale Blac Hawkes Bay at Birniehill (ai) Gordon Setter 10 month bitch with a clean, classy outline, correct length and depth of muzzle, soft brown eye and pleasing width to skull. Lovely reach of neck leading to a well angulated front, enough depth for her age and a topline she kept well on the move, I would just prefer a clearer tan on her legs Best AVNSC Puppy PGroup 2
2nd Kenzduo Deeply Dallas Hungarian Vizsla, a little tall for me but he has a balanced head with a well shaped eye. He was refusing to co-operate with his handler which did spoil his outline a lot of the time but he did use his hocks well on the move.
1st ShCh Elgert Take a Bow with Tayowen JW Field Spaniel. I cannot deny this is a dog I have admired for a number of years, He is a fine specimen of the breed with the most noble of heads and a lively expression. I love his shape and substance and when he moves he shows the true unhurried stride required of the breed. When it came to the group the cocker just had the edge in coat but I could not deny him Best AVNSC and Group 2
2nd Kiegame Quintessence at Benrae GSP bitch presenting a clean well shaped outline, good length of muzzle with the correct amount of lip and a grave eye. She flowed through the neck and shoulder keeping her topline well, she showed a lovely front reach and profile action.
