Class 148 GCB NO ENTRIES  





A rather mixed quality entry and whilst disappointed in that respect, the class winners all had appeal and I was pleased with the competition for the CCs. Some quality on show.

(1) 1 Melbourne's Melriding Jerome, a dog which I admired in the past and here was looking good. Nicely headed with a good expression from lovely eyes, just enough neck, so well ribbed and bodied and such good feet. A bit loose in front now, but side on he can still shift.

(7,1) Headed by two lovely puppies which I found hard to separate. 1 & Res CC & BP Hunt's Carpaccio Red Adair, beautiful shape, uses that elegant neck to best advantage and enhance his outline. Excellent keel, clean throated, pleasing head length and very good ears. Held his shape so well circling the ring which is where he edged the runner up into second place. 2 Smith's Bronia Gregorio b/t, which I liked immensely. His head properties are outstanding and I loved his eyes and expression. Super neck, great fore assembly, well defined sternum and smooth, clean underline. He was in spanking coat, showed his head off and was spotless in jacket. He can just dip a shade in back at times which is what swung the decision to Red. In profile he is impressive with good reach and drive. 3 Carye's Debbiejay Izzy Whizzy.

(5) 1 Shelton's Barisse Eragon, b/t with such a winning head and expression from really good eyes. Well defined sternum, clean in throat, ample arch to this neck and his underline is smooth and gradual to the abdomen. Spotless in coat he has very good angles and I was a little disappointed as he went around the ring as I felt he could have shown a little more oomph with this shape! But he has a dash of quality which saw him through. 2 Daykins' Barratini Johnny Cash, nice red, good for size and substance. Shade long in loin and could be a bit firmer in hock. Head handles so well, it is balanced, little or no stop, well shaped eyes and very good ears He is blessed with a good long neck and he holds himself so well on the stack. 3 Wolsey's Donnadoon Jolly Roger for Glyndwr.

(3,1) 1 Burton's Swingletrees Razzamatazz, what superb coat condition this handsome red was in. Skull has a hint of arch, the cheeks are clean, the jaws punishing and powerful and he has just about enough neck. Backline rises just a little towards the croup on the stack, but he rights that on the move. I'd like a little more width in chest and his pasterns could be firmer although side on he is smooth and purposeful. 2 Sim's Little Wizard of Kelmbeck b/t, but lacking in chest width and his lower rib cage cuts up quite sharply which does little to help his shape. Lean head, lovely mouth with big teeth, ears frame his cheeks so well. Although quite sound, his backline is a bit unsteady on the go around.

(6,1) 1 & CC Blackburn-Bennett's Stargang Avenger, I just loved him on sight. Just over the 12 months and today's win gives him his title. Has style, shape, terrific reach of neck and layback in shoulders. Underline so smooth, ample weight in bone and already well bodied. His rump has width, is rounded, the thighs well developed and he really motors as he goes around the ring. Add a head that is just lovely and you have a hard nut to crack. 2 Phillips' Jentiki Red Chilli Pepper of Robinswood, different type to the winner being smaller and more compact and without the tremendous neck and head carriage of the winner. He is well ribbed, the loin is firm and the rump wide and well muscled. He went around the ring with a light, free stride to be placed in this nice class. 3 Jones' Picollo Teckel Agent Provocateur of Radclyffe.

(5,1) 1 Williams & Moes' Cwardhian Can't Touch. This b/t won this class on his construction and balanced shape. Super condition, well muscled and he has a free, easy profile action. Not the head that appeals to me as it is a little deep through in backskull and I would like the cheeks to be leaner. 2 Kent's Lokmadi Ocean's Eleven JW, good fronted red, head sufficient length and eyes pleased me a lot. Like several today, his chest cuts up very abruptly which spoils his outline appeal. Side action is smooth and balanced but perhaps a little narrow in front. 3 Melbourne's Metadale Nikolai of Melriding.

(12) 1 Hughes' Julidachs Jocasta, this b/t was beautifully schooled and made the most of her chances, especially on the move where she was collected, even stepping with an assured footfall and was sound! Her outline drew my eyes, her head is clean, the eyes dark and expressive and she uses that long neck to advantage. In such shining coat she certainly earned the red card. 2 Scott's Wolferlow Anthea another b/t and I thought she could win the class, but for some reason at times she stopped dead in her tracks and looked a trifle apprehensive. She handles well on the table, is so well put together in construction, has a well rounded rump and good feet. Good head shape, ample strength in jaw but just that shade worried look at times. Hope she gets over it. 3 Blackburn's Stargang Morning Glow.

(7,2) 1 Herrington's Kathington Chance to Dream, yet another b/t. Quintessentially feminine in head, beautiful eyes and ears, reachy neck, well defined sternum, smooth underline and her backline is as firm as a rock Not the biggest bitch in the world, but well ribbed and such well muscled hindquarters which she used so well in profile. 2 Bishton's Jaydania Jay Low, b/t with not quite the super head balance and length of the first, but her eyes and ears are lovely. So well ribbed, they carry well back to a supple loin and well let down hocks. Side action got brownie points but she is a little loose in pastern when coming towards you. 3 Kent's Lokmadi On Silent Wings.

(9,5) 1 Kent's Lokmadi Paper Tiger, again b/t and another which heaps to admire. Shapely, excellent reach of neck, smooth backline to a rounded, well muscled rump, ribs have depth & allow plenty of heart room. I liked the length of her skull, smooth in cheek and she was another in stunning coat. 2 Scott's Wolferflow Fascinating Aida red, stand a shade over built otherwise she is good to go over on the table. Pleasing head, dark eyes but I felt that perhaps her foreface could be a little longer. Well placed ears and she was another in lovely coat. Used her hindquarters so well in side action. 3 Griffith's Stargang Lady Catelyn.

(6,1) 1 Melbourne's Melriding Berengaria, I thought this b/t to have heaps that I like. Lovely her size and overall balance, Beautiful headpiece, great reach of neck, so well ribbed and they carry well back and she stand on the firmest of hocks. On the move she is light, free striding and positive. 2 Shelton's Barisse Arbennik Isoldes Endeavour, this pleasing red was just a shade shorter in overall length/height balance for me. Good reach of neck, holds her shape so well on the move, lovely ribcage, well moulded croup and powerful thighs. In good coat. 3 Daykin's Barratini Margo.

(6,2) Only 4 but each beautiful in her own way and they were hard to separate. 1, CC & BOB Melbourne's Golden Algonquinnetta of Melriding. Simply stunning and she just spelled mini smooth to me. Devoid of exaggeration, everything just fits so well. She is compact, yet elegant, has tremendous presence, superb headpiece and expression, holds herself so well as though just waiting to be admired and then she moves out with that deceptively light, purposeful stride. Thrilled to learn that this is her 4th CC and that she was recently BIS at the Smooth Club Ch show. Well done. 2 & Res. CC Blackburn-Bennett's Ch Lokmadi Sea Holly at Stargang, another charmer and a worthy title holder. Again so feminine in outlook, long, clean head, the darkest of expressive eyes and very good ears all assist her charm. She is so well constructed, excels in reach of neck, and outline. Ran 1 close but I felt the winner just that bit steadier in hock action going away from me. As usual, immaculate in presentation and handling. 3 Hunt's Carapaccio Crimson Ribbon.
