Smooth Haired

Judge : Margaret Turner

I was pleased with my entry of 50. Temperaments were good all through. VD/B (4, 1) 1 Lusk's Ch Cedavoch Celebdil. B/tan of quality and soundness I have always liked, super size, excellent bone and feet, elegant neck, correct shoulders, lovely topline and ribbing, kept an admirable outline at all times, a good example of full maturity. RCC. 2 McCarthy's Ch Seatris Laced With Success. B/t, a very masculine lengthy dog with super ribbing and strong topline, pleasing head and neck, good forehand, moved well, preferred the turn of hindquarters of first. 3 Goad's Rosenport Play Me. MPD (1) 1 Tite's Rijobeau Hot On Ya Heels. Most promising b/t in all aspects, lovely head, eye and earset, correct shoulder and upper arm, tight elbows, good bone, just right for size, his profile movement and hind extension both excellent, super temperament, loved everything about him (except his name!), one for the future. BP. PD (1) 1 Jesse's Rill Scaramouche. Pleasing b/t, lengthy head and neck, good ribbing, bone and feet, a little long in hock but moved ok, with maturity should come on well. JD (4) All different types. 1 Tite's Rijobeau Caught Red Handed. Well grown red with great ring presence, lovely head, arched neck, strong topline, well sprung ribs, good bone, very mature with well filled front, does not need any more weight. 2 Higgins' Leveliss This Charming Man. B/t, more my size and type, nice head and eye, neck, topline and follow through all good, correct angulation of shoulder and upper arm, less mature than first but that is no bad thing, his balanced profile movement and pleasing quarters won this place. 3 Rawson's Rosenket Nostra Damus. PGD (4) 1 Jeffrey's Carpaccio Summer Class At Andax. B/t, the neatest outline of a rather similar class, pleasing neck and topline, long ribbing, good bone and feet, kept his shape at all times and moved well. 2 Lovick-Gibbs' Tealby Pride And Predudice Now Roleta. Preferred his head and earset, good topline, bone and ribbing, very similar to first, slightly bigger, preferred the hind end of first. 3 Graham's Gameron Simply Red. LD (3) 1 Ellis' Tealby Another Rumour In Red. S/red with a super long conical head, reachy neck, correct forehand with prominent prosternum, ribbing, bone and feet all good, true movement fore and aft, correct turn of quarters with decent second thigh, balanced reachy movement in profile, nice underline, perhaps a shade more weight in loin is desirable, in well muscled condition, lovely temperament. CC, BOB. 2 McNaughton's Cedavoch Born To Boogie. Deep red, same sire as first but quite different, lower to ground, excellent bone and feet, topline and ribbing good, better flow of underline than first, powerful profile movement, holding his head well on reachy neck, preferred the head and hind extension of first. 3 Starkey's Carpaccio Top Of The Class At Hamoura. OD (6, 3) 1 Chambers' Rijobeau I Swear Ya Honour At Viewmoor. Upstanding red with eyecatching head, arched neck and good forehand, super ribbing and underline, well constructed although a little high on the leg, tight elbows, moved with alacrity and precision, although a little large for me, his many qualities earned him this place, super temperament. 2 Goad‘s Rosenport The Illusionist. B/t, a good mature dog of pleasing make and shape with more prosternum than first, good bone and ribbing, nice underline, moved well but not the stride of first, preferred the head qualities of first. 3 McNaughton's Cedavoch Galadrim. MPB (2) 1 Tite's Rijobeau Done N Dusted. B/t sister to the best puppy and very alike with lovely temperament which caused slight problems on the move but her lovely head and neck, well shaped forehand and nicely turned quarters won the day. 2 Hunt's Carpaccio Black Sapphire. B/t, well shaped eye, nice earset, good bone, feet and ribbing, moved with more composure than first, but I preferred the neck and topline of first. PB (3) All three from the same litter, quite even and full of quality, lovely heads, necks and level toplines, neat elbows, well formed prominent fronts for age. I thought two had a shade more bone, preferred the hind angulation of first and third, splitting hairs on this trio. 1 Lovick-Gibbs' Roleta Gameron Wright To Reply, Best PB. 2 Seago & Gibbard's Gameron Right Note For Amlida. 3 Graham's Gameron State Of Play. JB (7, 2) 1 Norton's Matzell Maid To Match. Clear red who was all of a piece, very good forehand assembly, nice head and neck, level, well bodied, moved soundly on good feet, kept outline at all times, close up for RCC. 2 Rawson's Rosenket Nectar Of The Gods. Pleasing head neck and forehand, good bone and very good ribbing, rangier than first, preferred the feet and topline of first. 3 Riseborough's Matzell Maid Specially. PGB (5, 3) 1 Ellis' Tealby Little Dorrit. B/t, neat is the word to describe this bitch, nice size, very well balanced on the move, displaying good fore and hind angulation, keeping a level topline. 2 Rawson's Rosenket Melody Maker. B/t, lovely head and neck, correct forehand, more bone, better feet than first, lovely in stance, preferred the outline of first on the move. LB (5, 2) 1 Ellis' Tealby Tittle Tattle. B/t built on lovely clean lines, sister to the BOB, super bone, feet and ribbing, loved her forechest, topline and turn of stifle, won on balance and deportment in profile movement. 2 Rawson's Rosenket Opal Essence. B/t, lovely elegant head and neck, good ribbing and follow through, looked super in stance, not as mature as first on the move. 3 Tite's Rijobeau Matron of Honour. OB (5) A lovely class. 1 Lovick-Gibbs' Ch Roleta Keepin Up Appirences.

CC. 2 Norton's Ch Matzell Mildred.
