Puppy Dog

1st: Jacka-Slater's Cassencarrie Robbie Burns

Lovely head & eye, good front & bone.  Handler has no control over him whatsoever & allowed him great liberties.  Good body & over loin.  Needs to drop over crop & movement very difficult to assess as he was allowed to go wherever he wanted.  Got lucky as he was alone.  I must admit he was better in the challenge.

Junior Dog

1st: Bullock & Keevil's Yazga Love The One You're With

Lovely head & muzzle, broad jaws, in good coat, excellent front & ribbing.  A touch flat in back & needs more rear angulation.  Well set & carried tail, packed with muscle.

2nd: Culverhouse's Cassencarrie Gandalf at Lykath

Looked good standing but a little elbowy moving & roached his back up too much.  Well muscled & conditioned, lovely body shape.  Not quite in coat.

Postgraduate Dog

1st: Cooper's Margham Feather Duster

Gay, happy boy, full of himself, nice to go over & in pleasing coat & muscle, large head, well set eyes, strong muzzle, good neck, well made ribbing & correct over loin & croup, carries his tail nicely, sound & active & quite strong.

Limit Dog

1st: Carter's Cassencarrie James Blonde

Excellent size & proportions, liked his head.  Eyes a bit too large perhaps.  Well set ears, OK in front & front movement, deep well ribbed chest, neat rear, well set tail.  A bit out of coat on the sides of his back but texture OK over croup so guess it usually is OK.  Moved truly & has a good stride in profile.  RCC

2nd: Denham's Scottsbairn Duke Of Ross

Biggish sort of dog, very masculine & well set up, eyes also very large, strong neck, OK in front, bone & feet.  Topline a wee bit flat & carries his tail too high.  Excellent quarters & beautifully muscled up.

3rd: France's Torbrae Dance 'n' Dazzle
Res: Hughes's Margham Go For Gold with Maganbar

Open Dog

1st: Deacon's Ch./Am Ch. Pennywise Burning Ambition for Cassencarrie

Smart & active on the move, true & very precise both ways, lovely head & eyes, strong neck, excellent coat & falling in pencils, deep enough & well made quarters.  Could slope down a wee bit more over croup.  Happy chap & shows well.  CC, BOB & G2.

2nd: Hamilton's Margham Moon Duster

Big boy, very strong & true moving.  Looked a little too boxy for a weaselly breed.  Good firm legs & tidy feet, well set tail.  Coat rather over the top.  Lovely expression & beautiful eyes.

Puppy Bitch

1st: Morris's Pennywave Amaryllis

Really lovely puppy, the size & shape I was hoping for, correct topline, pleasing head & expression, OK in front, enough bone for size, well set & carried tail.  Just needs more muscle & she will really hit the heights.  Moved well.  BP.

2nd: Lomas's Cloverwood Double Delight

Pretty head & eyes.  Rather upright in shoulders & lacks angulations.  Lovely crisp coat, good temperament & moved OK for age.

3rd: Pearson's Norfolkhaven Black Tulip

Junior Bitch

1st: Hughes's Maganbar Silver Geisha

So pretty, in expression is soft & melting, reasonable front.  Just a little elbowy.  Excellent body & topline.  Swings her rear when going away & coat a little rough looking.  Well set tail, a strong bitch & of good type.

Postgraduate Bitch

1st: Heywood's Schalulleke Clara Jones

Good size & proportions of height to length, beautiful head, eyes & length of muzzle, OK in front, good shapely body, well ribbed, nicely set on tail.  Out of coat but has hard texture on croup so guess she is OK usually.  Moved soundly.

2nd: Osbourne's Pitfirrane Silver Lady of Braego

Very overweight & she needs a diet.  A bit too flat in topline.  So sound & true moving and a lovely colour & coat, great personality & happy girl moving and showing.

3rd: Milliner's Millerim Rubis Jeudi

Limit Bitch

1st: Morris's Hendell Tassel at Pennywave

Very sound & workmanlike build, good head & muzzle, well set ears, strong neck, well boned & good firm feet, excellent body, topline & ribbing, OK in rear.  Needs a couple more weeks for her back coat to come through but hard good texture was there.  Super mover.  CC.

2nd: Denham's Dentgate Serendipity

A bit miserable & would not use her tail.  OK for type.  Not quite the front of 1 or forechest.  Kept her topline well, lovely head & expression, moved well to take the RCC.

3rd: Bromley's Mishahda Tempting Touch
Res: Kinsey-Morgan's Inzievar Gold Edition
VHC: Rolland's Dengold Morning Cloud at Dandiroyal

Open Bitch

1st: Hughes's Maganbars Play Misty For Me

Lovely temperament & condition, good body & topline, well carried tail.  Front could be set a little further back & a bit more neck would improve.  Well handled & excellent body condition, fair mover.
