Hulme's Vistca Vian of Hendell

Denham's Scottsbairn Duke Of Ross

Chapman-King, Eriksson & the late Buist's Inzievar Gold Touch

Tinsley's Aus Ch. Jollygaze Doris Day at Cloverwood

Shore's Swanwillow Seabreeze

Puppy Dog

1st: Shore's Swanwillow Sea Captain

Solidly built mustard, good head & expression, correct coat, well presented. Good topline, but moved a little close behind.

2nd: MacPherson's Dawsholm Wee Darick

Pepper boy with a good head & pleasing expression. Failed in topline & didn’t move well at all.

Junior Dog

1st: Pallister's Inzievar Gold Reserve

A very masculine mustard boy, strong head with good expression, good length of neck on lovely shoulders, leading to a good arch over the loin, an excellent topline which he kept on the move, probably the best hind action of the entire entry. To be critical, I would like a little more length.

2nd: Hunter's Etsill Scapa Flow

Pretty pepper boy. Failed to 1 in movement, being very close behind. Strength of head.

Novice Dog 1st: Pallister's Inzievar Gold Reserve

2nd: Miller's Puddockswell Moon Shadow at Dryfevalley

Pepper boy of nice size, decent head & expression. Failed to 1 in topline & movement.

Postgraduate Dog

1st: Hansford's Cassencarrie Bonnie Lad

Lovely pepper boy with great head & expression & good topline. Coat rather sparse & he is rather high on the leg & needs to move better behind.

2nd: Brain's Avonview Bein Bhreac

Mustard boy with strong enough head & pleasing expression. Rather flat on top which made his movement difficult to assess by hopping around the ring.

Limit Dog

1st: Hulme's Vistca Vian of Hendell

Mustard dog, as smart as paint, took my eye straight away, strong head, very masculine expression, in good coat & well presented, nice length of neck on good shoulders, good topline, which he kept on the move, which he did well both ways. CC.

2nd: Denham's Scottsbairn Duke Of Ross

Well known pepper dog with strong head & expression, well constructed, good topline. Moved a little close in front. RCC.

3rd: Skitt & Jones's Vistca Vincent
Res: Hansford's Cassencarrie Bonnie Lad
VHC: Smethurst's Dawsholm Dapper Davoc

Puppy Bitch

1st: Shore's Swanwillow Seabreeze

Well constructed pepper bitch who moved better in front than her brother, won this class on maturity & type, pleasing head. Good topline, but needs to tighten behind. BP.

2nd: Denham's Kirkhalin Starlight Phoebe

Raw pepper baby, full of promise, moved quite well for her first outing, pleasing expression. Just needs time.

3rd: Ray's Dentgate Sweet Symphony
Res: Marshall's Deegandan Lavender of Dun Eideann

Junior Bitch

1st: Chapman-King & the late Buist's Inzievar Royal Silver

Lovely pepper bitch, right out of the top drawer, great head & expression, correct topline which she kept on the move. A little unsettled, but on another day will take top honours.

2nd: Pearson's Norfolkhaven Black Tulip

Lovely head & expression, but moves too close behind for a bitch with such good conformation.

Novice Bitch

1st: Hunter's Etsill Inganess Bay

Sweet pepper bitch, could be stronger in head & have a little more neck to finish off topline. Moved OK.

Postgraduate Bitch

1st: Chapman-King, Eriksson & the late Buist's Inzievar Gold Touch

Top notch mustard bitch, best of heads & expression, great topline kept on a faultless move, coat just coming. Her overall outline is virtually flawless, she will go on to greater things. CC & BOB.

2nd: Hunter's Puddockswell Hootin Annie at Etsill

Pleasing mustard bitch, head could be stronger & she missed out on topline. Although she moved well.

3rd: Morris's Cassencarrie Miss Grace at Pennywave
Res: Motler's Wazzly Athena

Limit Bitch

1st: Morris's Pennywave Amaryllis

Lovely mustard bitch, well presented & in good coat & condition, excellent head & expression, better topline of the two which she kept while moving well. Not finished yet, just needs a little more time.

2nd: Denham's Dentgate Serendipity

Solid bitch, but lost out to 1 in movement. Would prefer a stronger head & free hind action.

Open Bitch

1st: Tinsley's Aus Ch. Jollygaze Doris Day at Cloverwood

A strong, cobby, pepper bitch, strong head & good topline, which she kept on the move, great coat & presentation. Could move better behind & to be highly critical, I think she could be a little more feminine in expression. RCC.

2nd: Jarvis's Mosterlada Shooting Star

Mustard bitch, different type to 1. Lacking a little in topline & moving a little close behind.

3rd: Motler's Wazzly Aphrodite
