On the whole it was a quality entry and presentation was really good.  My only overall comment would be watch the width of the pelvis many are far too narrow behind and lack muscle and move close.

PUPPY Dog (3) 1. Roberts SWANSFORD ALEXADOR Very sound to go over well up to size, excels is front assembly moves true and keeps a lovely outline but he does bounce on the front – most probably a puppy thing that he will grow out of

2.Burley & Ways SWANSFORD ARCHERDOR litter brother to the winner same comments, apply very promising just not the maturity of 1.

3 Vincents Gainscroft Dashing Dudley

JUNIOR DOG (2) 1. Geesons ABYDACHS DARKEST NIGHT  What a glorious colour really dark rich shaded red, Lovely head good eye shape, good shoulder proportions and well ribbed.  Moves   true but just needs to put a bit more enthusiasm into is movement. 2. Vincents GAINSCR0FT DARK DESTROYER pleasing head, reach of neck, little short in upper arm hence his place, beautifully presented.

YEARLING DOG (1)  1. Geeson’s ABYDACHS RETURN OF THE NIGHT stood alone but a worthy winner classic outline, excellent presentation super reach of neck good, shoulder, would prefer a touch more forechest moves  soundly


Limit dog (2) (1abs)  1.Paskins CEDAVOCH IT’S TABOO AT KINDEACE Clean head of the right proportions but would like a more oblique eye, clean neck and shoulder with nice tight elbows, good length of ribbing, balanced hind quarters but moves close behind

OPEN DOG(4) 1. Roberts  CH SWANSFORD GREGORYDOR  The moment he enters the ring he shows his socks off – what a showman  He really is a delight to go over from the tip of his nose to the end of his tail, moves with such drive and purpose no wonder he is getting placed in groups – just beautiful CC & BOB  2. Metcalfe-Bilgin METADALE MONTEREY JACK Very  striking and presented to perfection never put a foot wrong, shorter in ribbing than the winner moves well and has a lovely overall outline at all times RCC 3.Pike & Carters ZARCREST GEORGE CLOONEY

VETERAN DOG (4) 1. Hirst’s RANGLEWOOD LANTANA AT KEJANA  B&T Nice clean outline, well presented, in excellent condition credit to his owner, moves true and obviously enjoyed his day out  2. Brealey LABBADAX EYECATCHIN SHAOW AT XANADAX

PUPPY BITCH (3) Burley & Ways SWANSFORD ALMADORA  Elegant  red/sable bitch, stunning pretty head , lovely eye shape, clean reacy neck, good shoulder, just flows around the ring  keeping a lovely outline  BP 2. Vincent’s GAINSCROFT DOLLYS DINA B&T sound bitch, unfortunately her coat had been chewed out by a kennel mate which detracted from  her outline but she is well made and should be back on form in time. 3. Foley’s BEAUTY LONG

JUNIOR BITCH (2) (1abs) 1. Garlicks RANGLEWOOD ISLAY a truly lovely bitch and a nice size looks what she is a very elegant young lady   Superb head lovely bone and feet well put together and glides around the ring surely one to watch

YEARLING BITCH  (3) 1. McNaughtons CEDAVOCH BLITHE SPIRIT   Quality  beautiful head reachy neck, good clean shoulder super front, good ribbing  moves well presented to perfection  RCC stood out in this class and pushed hard for top honours. 2. Fossett’s BRYSDAX SKYFALL  quality had not got the coat of the winner but  extremely should to go over and moves well. 3. Loggeta Wynn By Myles

POST GRAD (1abs)

LIMIT BITCH  (8) (1abs)  1. Metcalfe-Bilgins METADALE MARGARITA red , lovely head,nice dark oblique eye,  good reach of neck , text book front and shoulder good spring and length of ribbing and well coupled loin.  Powered around the ring as if she owned it and her tail never stopped wagging really put her all in was delighted to award her the CC 2. Fossetts BRYSDAX MAMMA MIA  b& t  I liked her a lot she is lovely to go over, this was a close decision the just preferred the reach of neck on the winner  3. Whitfiled-Roberts Swansford Gleighdora

OPEN BITCH (3) 1. McNAUGHTON  CH CEDAVOCH SPELLBOUND Outstanding rich shaded red that won this class with room to spare 2. Garlick’s RANGLEWOOD TRICK OR TREAT  well made but shown far too fat needs to go on a diet the weight she is carrying does not do her justice 3. Cheese’s RANGLEWOOD TITANIA AT SUECASEUS

VETERAN BITCH (1)  CH ABYDACH SUMMER DREAM A6T KINDEACE Lovely condition bet she was a cracker in her day turned a blind eye to her middle age spread – she needs some weight off
