I would like to begin with thanking everyone for your lovely entry on what was a super-hot day with temperatures well into the 80’s!
P D/B (4,0). 1st Brooksmiths’ Millpoint Golden Pippin, prettiest of heads on this 8-month-old baby, cracking curvy outline which is hard to overlook, liked her for her overall balance & elegance, for me she has everything in the right place but needs time, stepped out well with her handler, one I shall watch with interest. BP & PG4 Well done. 2nd Duncans’ Gotwickmanor Bucket, a lovely exhibit & similar remarks apply but not quite as balanced of one. 3rd Hemings’ Gotwickmanor Bella.

PG (5,0). 1st Welchs’ Hookwood Starman JW, b/w male of super balance & substance, the best of heads, moved out well. 2nd Perran & Welchs’ Evaluna Chasing Rainbows With Hookwood JW, b/w bitch, a feminine version of my winner which moved out just a little cleaner on the day. 3rd Browns’ Joneva It Takes Two.
O (5,0). 1st Welch, Maber & Hazeltines’ Sharnphilly Toggi With Hookwood JW, Super curvy b/w bitch who has reached maturity, very feminine head with a lovely dark kind eye, well bodied with good depth to the brisket & good spring of rib, super angles fore & aft, enough bone throughout, liked her overall balance, she gave her all & covered the ground with ease.

P D/B (0,0).
J D/B (1,0). 1st Taggs’ Oiyou Double Espresso JW, Stood alone but what a lovely picture this one presents. Very feminine head, moulded just right with super dark eyes & a cheeky expression. Good lay of shoulder & return of upper arm, deep throughout with plenty of heart room, correct length of loin. Moderately angled hind quarters with super second thigh which enabled her to power effortlessly around the ring holding a lovely topline, all finished off with the neatest of feet and wagging tail. Quality girl, I loved her! BOB.
P D/B (3,1). 1st Gaylers’ Carolake X’Marks The Spot, pale gold feminine headed young lady, good length of neck leading into a super front & tight at the elbows, deep throughout, good spring of rib, well-muscled rear angulation, hocks well let down, tightest of feet, super topline & tailset which she held level on the move with her super reach & drive, presented in good coat & condition, BOB & BP. 2nd Todds’ Van Gogh Of Sunshine’s Valley With Toddrosa, happy outgoing lad with a lovely outline & similar remarks apply, needs time to mature, unlucky to meet winner today.

P D/B (2,0). Two raw littermate babies in this class today, both enjoying their day out at their 3rd show, similar remarks apply, both a little soft in topline at this stage but showing good balance throughout, sure they will swap places many times. 1st Boudens’ Rumhill Bossy Boots, pretty headed bitch, happy outgoing youngster, good coat & condition, moved out reasonably well. RBOB & BP. 2nd Boudens’ Rumhill Black Sapphire, litter brother to one but not quite as together today.

PG (2,0). 1st Stones’ Kidenoan Mark Time For Merrem JW, lovely headed youngster, correct bite, shown in lovely coat & hard condition, overall he presents a good balanced picture with good body proportions, but for me - little upright in arm, moved out well to clinch this class. 2nd Bennetts’ Cerysan Crusader, another well balanced youngster shown in full coat, good angles fore & aft, good second thigh & well let down hocks, stood on good feet & moved well in the heat, to be super critical - a little more trimming would enhance this boy greatly.

O (4,0). 1st Dorrells’, Tollisty Moet En Chandon JW, lovely compact male of good size, liked his head shape & alert expression, strong jaw with correct bite, not the darkest of coats but underneath that thick coat there is a super made lad who is deep throughout, with a good front assembly & is tight at the elbows, stands well on the straightest of legs & tightest of webbed feet, adequate rear angulation with good muscle-tone, his is a joy to watch on the move where he comes alive with his powerful true movement, my notes say what a cracker!
