Thank you to my able stewards who kept things running smoothly and to the exhibitors for my entry.
I felt type was varied in both dogs and bitches, especially heads. Movement and underlines were also varied. There were some hotly contested classes where I really was spoilt for choice and it was nit picking with good dogs having to go cardless.
A lovely class to start with , many who were not placed I am sure will be placed later when they have matured.
1st Rudkin, Dynasty Dax Tarquin. Lovely red who won this hot class on his make, shape and showmanship. Very sound on the move , maintaining his beautiful profile. Very good angulation fore and aft. Classic outline stacked and on the move with a beautiful head and dark eye. Just needs to mature on.
2nd Charlesworth, Keydax Otis . Very nice B&T who just needs to get his act together. Good size and so well ribbed. Again good angulation fore and aft and well boned. When he settled he moved soundly. Just needs a little more confidence and he will trouble the best.
3rd Kent,Lokmadi Tigre.
1st Bell, Tolbery Liquorice Torpedo BPD Really lovely B&T who is all of a piece, being well boned and of a good size. Beautiful angulation both ends. Excellent head and eye. Classy and stylish stacked and on the move. He really appealed.
2nd Connolly and Donnelly, Rosilath Emmet. Very nice red with a beautiful head. Another well off for bone. Classic outline on the move with very good angles all through. Just needs to gain more confidence.
3rd Roberts, Denver Darling Superman
1st Beach, Riowood Arizona. Really liked this young brindle dog who pressed very hard in the challenge. He has a beautiful head and an appealing reach of neck. Very well ribbed and enough bone. Classy and stylish stacked and on the move. Should give his owner a lot of fun.
2nd Reed, Deercroft Dream Chaser. Different type to first and has a lot going for him. A little shorter and very well boned. All of a piece. Sound on the move coming and going. Lovely head and dark eye. On the day I preferred the elegance and reach of neck of first but he pressed hard.
3rd Nelson, Marvale Southern Comfort at Venari.
Good class , headed by: 1st Lombardelli, Kelmbeck Sydney. Another classy red with a lovely stylish outline stacked and on the move. Excellent ribbing with good angulation both ends. Beautiful head, eye and feet. He has breed type in abundance.

2nd Roberts, Denver Darling Doctor Who. Res. cc. Lovely red with similar remarks to 1st. Unlucky to come across winner on such top form. Oozes breed type and quality with a better head than first . Looked the part on the move but I preferred the hindquarters of first when stacked.
