Thank you to the officers and committee for the invitation to judge at this lovely, well organized show and to my steward for the day.

Retrievers (Curly Coated)

Junior 1st Suttons Foxriever Grey Ghost. 13 month old liver male who had really good overall balance when stacked. His outline was typical Curly Coat. Masculine without being overdone. Moved out well with a good stride.

2nd Richards & Flaher Tessmene Icing On The Cake By Kagemusha. Very feminine liver, just not as forward as 1 and just dropping her topline slighty when stacked. Balanced quality head. Moved well.

Post Graduate 1st Suttons Hopeall And AATs Bud Spencer (Imp Ger) This young dog has depth throughout giving the impression of power. Super wedge shaped head, muscular neck into well developed forequarters. Pasterns were strong. Deep through the chest with well sprung rib. Moved well with drive. Super coat.

2nd Spencers Crimblescurl Elm. Decent type with balanced head. Excellent coat but was quite lethargic on the move today.

Open 1st Boormans Tessmene Talk Of The Town. Appealing liver male. Well put together, excellent depth throughout with strong outline. Correct wedge shaped head with super expression. His movement was free and active with positive footfall. BOB
