I wish to thank all that came today bringing their dogs and showing them in good condition. I think as a breed we need to concentrate on movement, especially forward reach as it is lacking in so many giving the impression of a choppy action which is alien to the ESS. It may look impressive when moved quickly however it is incorrect. A Springer’s movement should be effortless.

Very close decision between these two boys who are both super specimens of the breed.
1st: 7047 TOPLISS Mrs T E Forest Fruit From Tamaam To Beresford (Imp) Very well made male with plenty of scope and style. His head needs to break as he lacks stop at this time however I am sure it will. He is right for his age in body and maturity his angles are good and he has quality holding them together. Well boned but not overdone. His movement won him this class as it is free and easy with extension front and back. It is easy to see why his handler may get carried away with his stride however I think he would benefit from a slightly slower pace. RES CC
2nd: 6999 EYEINGTON Mr & Mrs S Meadowdale Banjo JW Sh.CM Lovely male who is always shown in such glorious coat and condition he is a credit to the hard work that is handler puts into him. Loved his head and expression, one of the best on the day. Long neck, good shoulders well angled front and back. He has super bone and substance all through. Lost to 1 on movement today not as steady up and back.
