Henry's Dariant Grace Mi Solar at Trinzy

Puppy Dog 1st: Marshall & Skitt's Deegandan Dughall
Nice type of mustard puppy, very sound, nice size, good moving both ways, excellent head and expression, excellent mouth. Not in his best coat, but that will come.
2nd: Jacka-Slater's Pennywave Lone Ranger
Mustard, close to 1. Not as well bodied as 1, but at 11 months can still mature. In excellent coat, sound both ways, head is balanced. Would like a little more strength in muzzle.
3rd: Hendrick's Etsill Quoy Dandy

Junior Dog 2nd: Henry's Dariant Genri Mi Rey at Trinzy
Very outgoing 9 months dog, OK for size, good in head and expression, straight in front, good bone and feet, sound moving, coat of good texture. Topline a little exaggerated here.

Postgraduate Dog 1st: Johnson's Avonview Beinn Heasgarnich
Pepper dog in great coat and condition, nice to go over on the table, good length of body, good hindquarters, nice in head. Would like a shorter muzzle.

Limit Dog 1st: Shore's Swanwillow Clarion Call
Mustard dog with the most cuddly head and expression, strong square muzzle, excellent front, good bone and feet, so very sound, in excellent coat and body condition. CC.
2nd: Hughes's Maganbar Magic Moment
Not the best behaved young man in the class. Happy as they come and very full of himself, sound on the move, clean in neck and shoulder where he scored over 3.
3rd: Sleight's Cassencarrie Bobby Vee at Bonnybeck

Open Dog 1st: Morris's Cassencarrie Rumour Has It at Pennywave
Mustard dog of good length. Gets his tail a little high, but he is sound on the move. Lovely head and nice expression, good reach of neck, good topline, coat of good texture. RCC.
2nd: Kurg's Ch. Etsill Scapa Flow
Pepper dog who I have often admired, such a nice dog to go over. Not the layback of shoulder of 1 and didn’t have the flow of neck of 1 stacked. In super coat, showed so well. A worthy Ch.
3rd: France's Torbrae Dance N Dazzle

Puppy Bitch 1st: Henry's Deegandan Grace Darling
Very raw but very full of herself. Not in full coat as yet. Sound and free moving, scored in head type over 2, but 2 scored in topline.
2nd: Miller's Puddockswell Moon Whisper at Dryfevalley
Pepper and a really nice type. Would persist in standing poorly in front and not quite so good in shoudlesr. In better coat than 1, well handled. Very close up.

Junior Bitch 1st: Henry's Dariant Grace Mi Solar at Trinzy
Mustard bitch who I was quite taken with, long weasely body, excellent coat texture, sound both ways, super head and expression, large yet well placed eye, very showy. Should have a good future. BP.
2nd: Miller's Puddockswell Truly Scrumptious at Dryfevalley
Slightly different in type to 1, mustard without the length of 1 but a well shaped body. In super coat condition. Not quite as sound as 1, but in profile moved out really well.
3rd: Rushton's Newtoon Silver Gem

Postgraduate Bitch 1st: Skitt & Marshall's Duneideann Limited Edition
Mustard bitch of a very nice type, good length, good neck and shoulders, excellent in head, well shaped eye giving a lovely expression, moved well both ways.
2nd: Sleight's Cassencarrie Madelaina at Bonnybeck
Also mustard but slightly heavier in type to 1. Not as good in coat as 1, but was of a super texture. Very nice in head, strong muzzle. Just a little too heavy in front and so spoiled her front movement.

Limit Bitch 1st: Heywood's Cloverwood Day By Day at Schalulleke
What a nice pepper bitch this is, a new one to me and quite where she has been hiding I don’t know! Lovely type, super head, good outline, sound free moving, presented superbly. In the challenge she didn’t move with the same enthusiasm and so won RCC, but it was so close.
2nd: Marshall's Duneideann First Edition
Pepper without the length of 1, but still in balance and good in topline and tailset. Not quite as sound in front as 1, but that was only nit picking. A nice bitch.
3rd: Shore's Swanwillow She's Hot
Res: Hughes's Maganbar Apple Blossom

Open Bitch 1st: Russell's Ch/Aus Ch. Jollygaze Hopeless Romantic for Hawkesmill
Pepper of a really nice type, long shapely body, very good in front, good reach of neck, excellent topline, in super coat, so well presented, sound both ways. A quality bitch. CC & BOB.
2nd: Morris's Pennywave Amaryllis
Mustard bitch who is different in balance to 1, so nice to go over, good neck and shoulders. Not quite as good in front as 1. Good topline, tail carried well, well bodied, good length of rib, excellent hindquarters.
3rd: Rolland's Clossongrey Marshwiggle
