Thank you to the committee for inviting me to judge at this well run top show, I really enjoyed my day, and my sincere thanks go to my steward, Elizabeth Harrap for all her hard work, with such a big entry she really did had her work cut out today.
My thanks must go also to the exhibitors for such a wonderful entry and for the sporting way they excepted my placings, (in fact with such large classes many top rate exhibits had to go cardless) this will be my last time of judging a breed, time marches on, and I find early mornings and long drives just too much. I was very pleased with my main winners, and think the breed is in a good place at the moment, with so many quality exhibits, however I was very worried to see some very light in bone, ( almost dainty), and cut up underlines, almost whippet like, when in fact the underline should gradually merge into the line of the abdomen.
