Minor Puppy Dog 1st: Rolland's Dandiroyal Diggory Delvet
Well boned pup with dark round eye, balance of head and muzzle and well filled. Wide mouth and big teeth. Dark rich mustard jacket which was well presented. A confident pup who has time on his side.

Puppy Dog 1st: Bell's Hawkesmill Indigo
Two litter brothers here, very similar in many ways, 1st is more forward in coat than 2nd and will no doubt change places many times. Dark eyes and good skulls for their age. Fronts are a bit untidy but time will improve. Both moved with confidence.
2nd: Noble's Hawkesmill Indiana

Junior Dog 1st: O`Malley's Waitensee Charlie Farley at Belapapavo
Pepper, OK in head and eye, good length of neck and body. Shapely topline and correct set on. Moved better when settled to the job.
2nd: Doyle's Dentgate Jackfrost at Ilexquercus
Mustard in need of a new jacket so detracts from his shape. Ample head.

Postgraduate Dog 1st: Henry's Dariant Genri Mi Rey at Trinzy
Very enthusiastic mustard, good expression, dark eye and ample skull. Well furnished head and small ears. Good run in and layback. Correct topline and set on. Well presented jacket.
2nd: Hayes & Harrod's Etsill Rognvald
Pepper who needs a new jacket. Strong skull and dark eye. Well ribbed and good length of body.

Limit Dog 1st: Gregg's Dariant Lui Vencedor Di Mi Soul at Bambusa
I liked this boy very much. He has a big strong skull and large dark eyes, strong neck and clean shoulder and well ribbed. Carrying far too much condition at the moment so is losing definition in topline. Moves well and hind movement is superb. RCC.
2nd: Johnson's Avonview Beinn Heasgarnich
Well presented pepper, tidy front and good feet. Well muscled and moved well.
3rd: O`Malley's Waitensee Charlie Farley at Belapapavo

Open Dog 1st: Shore's Swanwillow Clarion Call
Mature mustard, strong head and neck running into clean shoulder, well boned legs and he stands on strong well padded feet. Well ribbed and correct topline and set on. Short hocks and well bent stifle. His movement is strong and powerful. Well deserved CC & BOB, his third.
2nd: Milliner's Ire Ch. Xenon z Roxburku Sun at Millerim
Lighter boned pepper. Ample head and dark eye. Clean shoulder but not the layback of winner. Enthusiastic mover.

Minor Puppy Bitch 1st: Rolland's Dandiroyal Puddleglum
Delightful pepper with the darkest of eyes and pigment. Feminine expression, small ears and well furnished head, wide mouth. Well boned and tidy front. Well ribbed but carrying a lot of condition today so she loses her topline. Just needs a little more confidence to finish the picture.

Puppy Bitch 1st: Russell's Hawkesmill Ishbelle
Confident pepper who when settled moved soundly. Feminine head and expression, dark eye and correct ear set. Clean shoulder and reachy neck. Would like a bit more body on her to balance. Well presented jacket. BP.

Junior Bitch 1st: King's Bonnybeck Delilah Creek
10 month old mustard, pretty head and dark eye. Clean shoulder and well padded feet. Moved with confidence.
2nd: O`Malley's Belapapavo Aleka Allamanda
Same age as 1st, heavier set pup. Dark eye. Well ribbed.

Postgraduate Bitch 1st: Rolland's Clossongrey Marshwiggle
Pepper with great pigment, darkest of eyes and small ears. Round skull, well furnished. Well padded feet and good bone. She has great length and is well ribbed and the shortest of hocks. Unfortunately she put very little into showing but maybe the change of handler didn't help.
2nd: Drake's Deegandan Bessie Surtees to Tollcross
Lighter boned pepper, dark eye but not the head of 1st.

Limit Bitch 1st: Henry's Dariant Grace Mi Solar at Trinzy
Mustard with great attitude and presence, dark eye and balanced head. Tidy front and good feet. Well ribbed and correct topline and set on. Short hocks and well turned stifle. Movement is crisp and sound. CC.
2nd: Denham's Dentgate Hollyberries
Tidy pepper, feminine expression and dark eye. Well ribbed but not the shoulder of 1st. Well presented jacket and moved well.
3rd: Booth's Cloverwood Candlelight at Lannia
Res: O`Malley's Belapapavo Aleka Allamanda

Open Bitch 1st: Marshall's Ch. Dun Eideann First Edition
Pepper, feminine head and expression, dark eye and well set ears. Well prepared jacket. Moved with enthusiasm. I would prefer more leg under her to balance and give more reach and drive. RCC.
2nd: Weatherstone's Ch. Cloverwood Day By Day at Schalulleke
Pepper in full coat which rather detracts from her shape. Dark eye and pigment. Reachy neck and good length of rib, well bent stifle and short hocks.
