Thank you for your entries and sportsmanship.   It has been 8 years since I last awarded CC’s in this variety and enjoyed the appointment all the more for that.  General observations include ;  some lacked the desired forechest ,  some displayed more than a slight arched loin  with rumps higher than the withers on the move.   No concerns around body conditioning ,  although in my opinion some would benefit with a little more muscle tone.   Presentation and  temperaments were very good.

Quality promising puppy of correct size with good outline,  he has good ground clearance,  well angulated both ends which he used to move soundly and covered ground well in profile.

2ND - Griffingate I Have A Dream  (Mr JR Rowberry)

Lovely type and quality again, retained his outline on the move once settled ,  I feel handler could get more out of him and he should do well.

1ST - Emem Solar Power JW  (Mrs M Dance)

Love his type and quality,  great for size,  correct conical head with correct eyes enhances his true wire expression, so well balanced,  long neck into sound front assembly which is well filled,  excellent coat texture,  well ribbed back, strong topline and well angulated quarters with good width,  moving so well true fore and aft but it was his profile gait that sealed his awards today,  with excellent reach and drive the more he went the better he became.  Pleased to award him the CC. .

Another super male of the highest quality with all the attributes required,  best of heads,  so well-proportioned throughout,  very good forechest,  great to see and feel his muscle tone, sound throughout but  just did not give quite as much on the move as the winner today ,  RCC.
