1ST 2902 - Retrohound Hermes (Mrs K Coupland) the most together in this class of babies. B&T dog that presents a lovely outline when standing. Handsome conical head and keen expression, correct eye. Good depth of chest and prominent keel, good length of ribbing, nice tight elbows, ample ground clearance, well balanced and muscled. Correct padded tight feet. Moved out well once he got going and was sound in both directions. BP.
2ND 2927 - Craimose Adonis (Mr C F Young) a real baby and still needs time to mature all through and drop into himself but he has all the essentials there with a good frame and nice outline when he stands. Correct conical head with keen expression, high set ears, used to advantage. Needs to firm in front slightly and tighten in feet but he has a good length of neck and well laid shoulder. Well ribbed back with short loin. Firm topline and well set tail. Good rear with enough angulation. Moved out well and soundly.

Difficult class to judge as 3 very different types.
1ST 2905 - Ir Ch Dovestream Who Killkenny Ir Jr Ch (Mrs D A Gaskin) masculine B&T dog who instantly takes the eye and presents a very good overall picture when standing. Masculine conical head and dark keen eye. Strong jaw. Excellent length of neck into well placed shoulders. Correct oval front with elbows tight to chest and neat, well-padded feet. Correct sweep of keel giving nice underline. Strong topline, great ribbing and short strong loin but a fraction longer in back for my liking. Excellent, well-muscled hind quarters which he used to advantage on the move having powerful drive from behind and excellent extension in front. So sound both coming and going. He really presented a lovely picture on the move, and I was delighted to award him BD.
2ND 2917 - Bensarka Limerick (Miss L K & Mrs J C Macdonald) another very nice honest dog of a completely different type and shorter in back than my winner. Liked his size and shape. Lovely head and expression. Super sternum and sweep of keel. So well-constructed in front, with elbows tight to chest and neat feet. Well ribbed with short, firm loin and excellent strong topline. Moved correctly fore and aft and held a very good outline on the move, I just felt today he didnít have the rear drive of my winner but a really lovely dog and was very happy to award him RBD.

1ST 2920 - Craimose Aquilegia for Rayol (Mrs E & Miss C Roberts & Smith) promising, attractive B/T bitch. She has a lovely feminine typey head shape and keen expression. Good front angulation, with elbows tight to chest and good bone and neat feet. Pleasing promise and development of bone and body for age. Well ribbed and short loin. Correctly set tail. Moved well in front with good extension and enough drive from the rear. Still very much a baby but should have a bright future.
2ND 2916 - Tramardachs Booty Licious (Mrs T Lucas) another very promising puppy just lacking the confidence of the winner today which told against her in the end. Really lovely shape when standing with good overall balance. Excellent head and eye with good under jaw. Well set, rounded ears. Good length of neck leading into adequately placed shoulders. Good upper arm and sternum. Well ribbed back with short, firm loin. Nicely angulated rear. Once settled moved well and soundly.

1ST 2908 - Bronia Solar Flare (Mrs F Hanney-Mitchell) cracking bitch with so much to like. I particularly liked her feminine size & she is so well balanced in profile when stacked. Feminine, conical in head with almond eye, well set ears. To go over she is almost textbook with correct length of neck & most perfect broad, well laid shoulders & correctly placed upper arm. Excellent keel and good depth but with enough ground clearance. Strong and true in front with tight elbows. Excellent body condition, firm topline. Excellent well-padded neat feet. Well ribbed and set back into a correct short loin. Excellent hindquarters which are well angulated with good muscle tone. She came alive on the move, holding her outline perfectly with good drive from the rear and lovely extension in front and being very sound both coming and going. I had no hesitation in awarding her BB & BOB.
2ND 2926 - Craimose Freesia (Mr C Young) litter sister to winner of Puppy and many of the same remarks apply. B/T with a lovely head, good length neck, well angulated shoulders with good upper arm. Well angulated rear with enough muscle for a baby. Moved well just needs a little more confidence on the lead. Sound both fore and aft.

1ST 2900 - Cootscanis Creme Caramel (Miss H Bird) a very well-schooled and happy showgirl who was just out to please her owner.

Moved out well and so well handled to get the very best from her.
