I would like to thank the exhibitors for their entries, as I was not the scheduled judge, unfortunately Antony Bongiovanni should have been judging but due to Covid was unable to come back to the UK in time for the show, I hope in time Anthony is able to fulfil his appointment.
I think overall that the bitches have the edge over the dogs. Weighing the exhibits was interesting. I had to ask 1 exhibitor to move away from the scales as they seemed to want to influence the weight, I had no issues with any of the exhibits only 1 was close to the top weight but that did not change my opinion, teeth on the whole were very clean. My only concern is the lack of pro-sternum on some exhibits finished just behind the front legs. Temperaments were excellent.
I would also like to thank my Stewards Vicky Wand and Geraldine Brace who kept me and the exhibitors in good order.

An excellent head shape set on an elegant neck, down into a correctly angulated front, good length of upper arm with lovely well padded tight feet, shoulders flow into her topline. Well sprung ribs in proportion to the overall picture. Very strong rear angulation which she uses to her advantage, just lost her sparkle in the challenge.

Good dark eye and pigment, front assembly ok but would prefer a little more pro-sternum, elegant reach of neck into good layback of shoulders, well sprung ribs, underline and topline ok. Moved with drive but preferred the overall picture of 1. A couple of really nice bitches.
