1)McPherson & Paterson Fransin Brasilian T P Panettone (imp), standing alone, excellent brindle puppy dog showing great promise. Correct head with dark eye, ear set a little low. Long neck, deep brisket, sloping shoulder and good ribbing. Level topline and moved well.
1)Weatherer Salixian Levnta Via Itsuitzuz, stood alone, brindle dog with good head and straight front. Ribbed well back and lovely big hammy quarters. Moved well but carried his tail rather high which spoiled his outline.
1) Downes Aventine You Only Live Twice, big brindle dog with a lovely outline. Classic head , long neck and well laid shoulder. Nice straight front, deep keel and well ribbed. Level topline strong quarters and he moved very well. BOB

1) Coverley Aventine Dawn Patrol, brindle, good head shape with nice dark eye, long neck, sloping shoulder and straight front. Good bone and neat feet. Level topline and moved sound and steady. BP
2) Gibson Allfreys Greta Garbo, another brindle, much younger than 1 therefore not as mature but she shows promise, needs to steady on the move as she spoiled her chances by erratic movement.

2) Warren Wagsford Florence, dark brindle with good head, dark eye and high set ear. Was rather unsettled and this showed in her movement.
