Being 2nd in the ring gave exhibitors a fairer chance to make it in time through the adverse weather conditions. 53 of the 70 exhibits were present with significantly less overweight than in the Miniature Smooth-Haired variety. Just 6, of which 5 were males, meaning that there was just 1 bitch amongst the 31 shown. Must record, on behalf of us all, the fantastic, professional, job done by our stewarding couple who were present from 8am and worked right through both breeds with barely a 20min sandwich/loo break inbetween. Dog showing could not survive w/o such dedication. 
MPD (5) 1 Boyle’s Cresswell Zarcrest Black Off. 8m b/t; quite forward for his age & so secure both in his conformation & his carriage; fabulous headpiece enhanced by eye & ear; so well filled in front with oval thorax; fairly compact with ground clearance; scored in backline & angulation; firm loin; gd rump & moved so soundly parallel on correct feet; immaculate in both coat & condition so as to “upgrade” him in the final challenge so as to annex Dog Reserve CC as well as BPIB. He’s in gd hands and look forward to watching him progress through the upcoming show season. 2 Mitchell’s Bronia Maverick. 7m cream & not outdone in the slightest; met the unexaggerated “moderately long and low “ test; so classy both in type & already in stature; conical head with gradual taper; great depth of eye pigment; nicely compact; well moulded front; ex feet; quality coat; showed off gd neck & angles on circuiting; another potential title holder with added maturity. 3 Brown’s Garbosa I’m A Dandy. 
PD (6,3) 1 Wood’s Wildstar Washington. 11.5m shaded red destined to the top, not least once his multiple CC winning kennelmate, who I now see is his sire, retires; he may be heading into that tricky teenager stage, but is currently still v much together & outstandingly sound with a long stride; lovely head with uniform taper; well placed eye & ear; so well constructed & angled; prominent breastbone; correct in croup & tail carriage; exciting. 2 McCarthy’s Nagshall Dyce The Ice. 9m cream & the first of a strongly consistent & numerate team from this exhibitor; so much quality & he kept gaining in confidence; all male in head with strength through tapered jaw; an appealing eye & so well pigmented for his colour; prefer a touch more neck length but he was in his baby coat; compact with sufficient clearance; well boned; a sound stride once co- operating; how privileged we were to have so many promising pups, such as he. 3 Marson & Nichols’ Charpurdy’s The Baron. 
JD (7,3) “Mea culpa” here, in respect of a dog’s weight, that I immediately corrected. The winner was entirely unaffected. 1 N. Dyce The Ice. 2 Poole’s Findowrie The Fusileer. 14m b/t built on quality bodylines just needing to come together more, being in his teenage phase; gd both in breed type & structure; long neck; gd angles; ex bone & feet; unexaggerated in his outline; only a little phased by a change of handler when this exhibitor felt unable to continue whilst leading the class around; had initially placed him Reserve, thinking he was the significantly overweight exhibit, but corrected my error awarding him this 2nd place; appreciated the exhibitor ultimately accepting the situation, both with a handshake and by continuing to show the rest of her exhibits. 3 James’ Jamesfair Wispasoftly. just a word of thanks to this exhibitor for her patience, having been waiting to be critiqued, and her gd grace in accepting events that cost her a place. Appreciated. 
PGD (3,1) 1 McCarthy’s Nagshall The Odd Reason JW 20m red who ticked so many breed specific boxes; gd proportions both in head & body; tapered muzzle retaining functional strength; full, oval, thorax; ribs extending well back with gd length of sternum; short, strong loin; correct angles; so true, easy & flowing on the move; sure to be rapidly moving up the ranks to challenge the best. 2 Wallace’s Ralines Just Jiles. 2yrs & with a v gd overall structure; loved his head & eye; well ribbed back; was just standing down at pastern & can still fill in loin; simply relatively immature. 
LD (4,1) 1 McCarthy’s Nagshall Dutch Odyssey. 3yrs shaded red with the most lovely head & eye that had length, shape & taper w/o prominent stop; great conformation; compact; required clearance; correct angulation; long croup; gd ribbing; had a stylish air about him with a flowing outline, maintaining the qualities of his breeding. 2 Poole’s Findowrie Mister McKye shaded red of undeniable quality who benefitted from a skilled, no nonsense, stand-in handler so as to accentuate his many breed specific features; ex headpiece in both length & uniform taper; well filled in front with a prominent breastbone; long, clean neckline; correct in body proportions and angulation; parallel mover; well able to hold his own against the best. 3 Latham-Jackson’s Hanishan Neapolitan Urishay 
OD (4,1) 1 Wood’s Ch Wildstar Wrobinson. 7yrs shaded red have placed at Group level; so proportionate & functional; so 100% sound with remarkable stride in front & drive behind; so distinguished in head & eye; so moderate w/o any exaggeration; compact with clearance; ribs extending well back; ex tail carriage & a flat coat, not obscuring his classic outline; have been privileged to campaign a dog to a breed record & know it gets harder with every outing but this guy should make it with, I believe, number 65 today! His legacy will be his progeny. Dog CC & BOB 2 Woodvine-Shone’s Hanishan Fire Cracker
3yrs shaded red; balanced & moderate in his proportions; strength through his tapering muzzle; well set eye but a shade pale in colour; his gd structure told on the move where he went well with a gd carriage & freedom. 3 Hall’s Cliffmere Woodman. 
SBD (1) 1 T Tried’N Tested. A red who, at 14.6 lbs & partially undershot, I couldn’t “qualify” in JD but stood alone here with his most sporting of owners who later jested his 12.9lb litter sister did indeed have a perfect bite! Great to meet an open-minded exhibitor. 
MPB (6,2) 1 Mitchell’s Bronia Chaka Khan. gorgeous 7m , litter sister to B Maverick; super feminine, cream; has the head, the pigment, the thorax, the moderation in proportions & the angulation; in tip top coat & condition; built to move right on flowing lines; notwithstanding her tender age, looks potentially title bound just like her brother. 2 Shutt’s Donnadoon Oh My Diana. 8m choc/ tan; gd in head & eye; showing that desired 25% ground clearance; already well filled in front; nicely proportioned; v gd structure; just not as “finished “ that can be a positive at this tender age & that the maturing process will readily address; v promising. 3 Holtom’s Rivandell Osha. 
PB (5,3) 1 McCarthy’s Nagshall I’m So Dizzy. 9m cream coming into that “nothing not to like “ category; gd in skull & eye; deeply pigmented; well filled in front with oval thorax; such proportionate bodylines; ribs extended well back; correctly angulated; softly feathered coat; lovely flowing lines as she circuited; such enviable promise. 2 McGavigan & Pettigrew’s Pettigans Deep Secret. 7m red who was less forward in her development that is no fault, simply a matter of maturity; that bit narrower in muzzle but with a lovely eye; that bit longer cast; the basic structure is excellent & proportionate; went well on ex feet; plenty of promise. 
JB (6,2) 1 Dare’s Darsoms Zynala. 14 m b/t who filled my eye upon her entering the ring & who filled my hands upon table examination; moreover, she simply couldn’t stand wrong, setting herself up so proportionately & with the brightest of character; most feminine head yet with functional strength of muzzle; faultless conformation; moderately long & low with no exaggeration; gave me ground clearance; ex coat that obscured nothing; beautifully free striding with a driving follow through and parallel width. Believe only her 2nd show with Reserve CC at her first, now upgraded to Bitch CC. Surely destined to the top. 2 Mitchell’s Bronia Day Dreamer. 14m cream of utmost type & breed qualities; lovely head; well pigmented; compact; had clearance; gd neck & forequarters; moved true on gd bone & feet; just not quite as self- assured but the great outdoors show season beckons & suspect will be in her element. 3 Stephani & Fletcher’s Walnutfarm Demelza. 
PGB (8,1) 1 Williamson’s Wildstar Wrobina at Barkroyal. 2yrs red with everything present & correct so I predict she will be swiftly moving up the ranks; so feminine in head, yet w/o any loss of strength, with a gd eye & ear; full & oval thorax; well ribbed back with gd length of sternum; all is proportionate & unexaggerated; so sound & parallel on the move with a gd stride. 2 McCarthy’s Nagshall Mystic Oddesey. 20m so just that bit less forward overall in her development; scores in head & eye; no mistaking her fairer sex ; filled front; ribbed back; correctly angulated; nicely coated; proportionate; gd carriage with an air of quality & sound & flowing on the move; anticipate a great summer lies ahead for this one. 3 Hall’s Cliffmere Edith
LB (9) Very closely competitive class with a full house of 9 & each of them beating the scales. 1 Mason’s Crownlake’s Queen Bee JW 2yrs b/t; v gd structure & overall bodylines, albeit if just a tad longercast; ex head & neck: correctly angulated; gd clearance; well muscled with an ex rump; both sound & flowing on the move; a truly quality exhibit so well turned out & shown to advantage; will be troubling them as the show season develops. 2 Wood’s Wildstar Wrolanda. 2yrs shaded red of utmost class; long, proportionate, head with strength of muzzle; lovely eye; well ribbed with gd length of sternum through to excellent, muscled, hindquarters that drove her around to give a proportionate, sound, stylish outline ; just that bit slacker at pastern; fully anticipate her becoming titled. 3 Walters’ Ralines Lemontini. 
OB (8,1) More great competition with not a single one tipping the scales. 1 Cox’s Dolyharp Sweet Harmony. 3yrs red that held herself so well; all in moderate proportion; lovely headed; ex eye & setting; well placed ear: so well constructed; well developed through front with prominent breastbone; compact with clearance; correctly angulated; not overcoated; unexaggerated; could not be denied as she circuited with flowing ease; the exhibitor appeared to be in shock with this win but the ringside had saved the loudest cheer of the day; absolutely of Ch quality, having a previous win at this level, and having evidently now priced herself out of Limit. Reserve Bitch CC. 2 Metcalfe’s Metadale Ariadne. 6yrs shaded red of correct proportions both through head as well as body; a quality exhibit who ticked so many breed specific boxes; just not quite the neckline & was standing a touch weak at pastern; another who made gd use of herself as she circuited so as to hold her place. 3 Boyle’s Cresswell Zarcrest Black Diamond. 
VB (2,1) 1 Holtom’s Ralines Cameo At Rivandell. 7yrs b/t with the most positive attitude to life to brighten all our days; lovely headpiece; compact with clearance; moderate & proportionate; carried herself with a certain style let alone soundness. BVIB
