I felt very honoured to be asked to judge and appreciated the good entry which included plenty of quality exhibits. I must thank the officers and committee for their kind hospitality and I am grateful to the friendly and efficient stewards who helped me through the day.

Minor Puppy Dog (5, 1a)

1st Topliss' Peasblossom Escape to Beresford
Well proportion baby, has nice rib and bone, good shoulders, good in loin which attaches a really nice body to a good backend. Straight front with forechest, good angulation and neat hocks. Wants some more definition in head, but I think that will come with time. Moved well on very neat feet.
2nd Tattersalls' Cresmore Vimeria at Alanea TAF
Promising 8 month old with good body and bone. Bit sloppy in front at the moment but hopefully will get it together in time.
3rd Bott & Allens' Dexbenella Sea The Stars with Allenie
4th Joyces' Shelcasrie Head Over Heels

Puppy Dog (6)

1st Shovels' Tiverstone Black French
Very good overall and I was taken with his head and kind eye. Makes a very good outline with good angulation in shoulder and hindquarters. Difficult to fault, has adequate bone and moved well.
2nd Cokells' Trimere Transition to Carlyquinn
There is a lot to like about this dog. He has a good deal of maturity for his age and has a very pleasing head. Good body, bone, front end construction and feet. Moves with some style but rather slack at the back when stood
3rd Mitchells' Heulyn Intoxication
4th Larges' Mompesson Flawless
5th Marshalls' Tiverstone Black Mickey

Junior Dog (5)

1st Guys' Calvdale False Arrest
Nicely presented and tidy on the move. Is impressive in outline, with adequate bone and good feet. Head is balanced, expression is pleasing with good depth in forface. Good reach of neck. Shoulder placement is good and topline is firm both standing and on the move.
2nd Walkers' Dexbenella Ollie Magern
Nice type and has a lot of quality. His head is not his fortune at the moment and he is a little loose in front.
3rd Happs' Jorobaden Alderniti of Emianna JW
4th Houses' Gleadsbury Whatshisname
5th Wildsmiths' Trimere Time Trail with Sandibeck

Yealing Dog (7)

1st Topliss' Petranella Perfick Choice for Beresford
Very classy young man and has that little something extra to focus your interest. Quality throughout. Really liked his head, expression and was impressed with his movement. Will be very surprised if he does not go all the way!
2nd Jacksons' Mompesson Cavendish
Lacks a little maturity, this was not helped by meeting this class winner. Liked his head, well balanced outline, nothing much to fault and provides a good overall package. Moves soundly but seemed to loose his neck on the move.

Graduate Dog (3, 1a)

1st Traczs' Meadowdale Alabama Slammer at Acregate
Has good substance and moves soundly. Would like to see more definition in head
2nd Walkers' Dexbenella Ollie Magern

Post Graduate Dog (6, 1a)

1st Shovels' Tiverstone Kingston Black
Well constructed black & white with enough bone, could do with a little more substance all round to offer a more masculine package, nice eye but just a tad strong across top of head for me. Moved steadily
2nd Happs' Beresford Beat The Clock with Emianna
Decent type with good outline but rather throaty.
3rd Woolhouses' Cherishym Outlaw

5th Attwell & Glossops' Feorlig You're The Tops

Mid Limit Dog (4) 

1st Jacksons' Mompesson Striker
Presents a good symmetrical outline, head is masculine and not overdone, good reach of neck flowing into good shoulders and front. Has good hind angulation with nice tidy hocks. Moves with reach and drive.
2nd Warreners' Cepen Changing Places with Waterswarren JW
This dog has style and shows himself really well. An awful lot to like about him but for me is too strong in head.
3rd Traczs' Meadowdale Alabama Slammer at Acregate
4th Reynolds' Clentonian Masterpiece

Limit Dog (6, 1a)

1st Houses' Gleadsbury Whatacracker JW ShCM
flashy but good sound honest dog. Compact in type with good depth of chest. Good body and strength in loin. Very acceptable head and expression. Moves o.k.
2nd Bashforths' Alanea Warrior of Jorobaden
Liked his head and the overall outline. Just prefered the front on the winner.

Open Dog (4)

1st Bott & Allens' Sh Ch Timere Talking Point of Allenie JW ShCM– C.C. & BIS. Just out of interest I looked up what I had written about this dog after giving him best puppy at Bournemouth 2 ½ years ago, I was impressed then, although I thought his head needed more fluting and chiseling. Time has been on his side and I was pleased to see how his head has obtained the definition that was previously lacking. He has a good body with forechest and depth, plenty of strength in loin. Good shoulder placement behind elegant neckline, solid topline leading into a good strong backend. Has just the right amount of bone and moves soundly on very tight feet. They say every dog has his day, on this evidence he ought to have a good few more.
2nd Mitchells' Sh Ch Barecho Hold Your Horses at Peasblossom JW (Imp Swe)
Has earned his title since last judging him and has matured nicely. Size, bone, body all in very good proportion. There is nothing flashy about him but is a good honest dog with a pleasing head, lovely dark eye and nothing out of place standing or on the move.
3rd Grays' Trimere Top Score ShCM
4th Eyeingtons'Trinitas Newky Brown of Meadowdale JW ShCM

Veteran Dog (2)

1st Calverts' Sh Ch Calvdale Softly Softly JW Res CC - Still in great shape at 7. Compact type and well proportioned. Well defined head with very kind eyes. Excellent in neck and topline. Super body with depth and spring of rib. Good forechest, strong in loin with good width across hindquaters. Still moves really well on good tight feet.
2nd Mitchells' Heulyn Flambeau
Rangier in type. Moved very positively around the ring and in fine shape for his 9 years.
Jimmy Cudworth Memorial Stakes Open (2)

1st Grays' Trimere Talk It Up
3rd in a good limit class. Good type and overall shape. Nice head and eye. Slightly tucked up in loin and just a bit loose in front
