1ST MR G & MRS A TERNENT HUNTERHECK TURN BACK TIME Lovely black and white puppy coming up nine months. Super and typical in head with gorgeous eye colour giving the soft and kind expression that we are looking for. Correct for size and appealing in balance and outline. Nice neck and symmetrical in angles front and rear. Well off for bone and substance. Did enough on the move and is sound. Could perhaps have a bit more oomph about him. Well coated and in good condition. Definitely one for the future!
2ND MS D GREENFIELD EASTFALLA NIGHT FEVER Promising and well presented LWT baby of six months. Giving a lot away in age and this showed in his overall appearance. A little narrow all through and rangier than one but still with time on his side for that to change. Very well boned and moved well. Pleasing in head but light eyes spoiling his expression at this stage.

1ST MRS J & MISS D LAUCHLAN LOCHBRIDE THUNDERSTRUCK Upstanding young liver and white male of nine months. Super head, definitely masculine but without coarseness. Dark eyes and kind expression. Excellent substance and depth of chest. Needing a bit more in the loin but this will come. Really great bone and lovely tight feet. Very well presented and turned out in gleaming coat. A handful for his young handler and it was hard work settling him but I saw enough to see that he covers the ground well and with the reach, drive and enthusiasm I like to see. BPD.
2ND MR J & MRS S KEIGHLEY PENDARLOW DENHAI Well presented l/w puppy of ten months. Much lighter framed and finer boned boy than 1. Not the head and expression at this stage, weaker in foreface and with light eyes. He was in nice coat and condition and he moved well and soundly.

1ST MS F GLENDINNING PLAIGLEN BEATERS BSTYLISH Black and white youngster of 13 months. Correct size and compact. Masculine head, a fraction strong in skull and slightly short in muzzle. Lovely eye colour as you would expect for a b/w. Good neck and his shoulders are well laid. Deep chested. Has plenty of bone and presents a picture of moderation. In glorious coat and condition. Moved okay.
2ND MRS K JENKINSON EASTRIDING DECLARATION Another black and white male, slightly older than 1. Another that is clean in outline and moderate with no exaggeration. Pleasing head although finer and slightly less masculine. Moves soundly although would prefer more drive from the rear. Well turned out and in lovely coat.

1ST MRS T E TOPLISS BERESFORD BLACK TIE Substantial black and white boy in lovely coat and well muscled condition. Just lovely head, all male but without being too heavy. Kindest of expressions. Very much appealed in outline, compact with good neck and topline, excellent bend to stifle, lovely bone and the tightest feet. Could have a tad more angulation to forehand but this didn’t impede his reach on the move. Was surprised at how much I liked this dog who moved better and better the more he went. Pulled out all the stops to take the RCC.
2ND MISS J A SUCH TRIMERE TICKS THE BOX AT MUJASCAL Another nice one although completely different in style. Quality youngster of good size. Appreciated his typical, moderate outline and he put in a great performance on the move, showing correct reach and extension. I think he is a bit at the in between stage at the moment and lacks body but time should definitely improve this slight lightness in frame. Not the head of 1 being a tad narrow all through with light eyes. Well presented and coat in good order.

1ST MR R J SMITH MELVERLY TOP GEEZER Cracking L/W youngster making a beautiful shape with quality all through. The loveliest masculine head with such a kind expression. Another with dark, correctly shaped eyes so essential to a soft, melting expression. Good reach of neck, compact and well ribbed. Deep chested with great substance. Superb well boned limbs, correct tight feet and well bent quarters. Well let down behind. In excellent coat and well presented. Another who got better and better the more he was moved. DCC and BOB. I stayed to watch BIS where he put in a better still performance. Well done.
2ND MRS N J MORGANS KENNAIR NORTHERN STAR Black and white male with masculine head, a tad stronger than I prefer. Kind expression however from dark eyes. A little long cast. Super bone and excellent feet. Correct tail set. Well presented and in lovely coat and condition.

1ST MS C & MR P BROUGH & WALKER RISELAWROAD NO DEAL Liver and white male well constructed throughout. Upstanding boy presenting a moderate and pleasing outline. Good male head with kind expression. Excellent bone and substance. Correct topline held beautifully on the move. Movement is his forte and he takes the eye with his super reach and drive. Stacked he tends to pull into himself rather than selling himself. Lacking in coat presently and more feathering would help to complete the picture.
2ND MR M J & MRS J V SHOVEL TIVERSTONE CHORISTER BOY Black and white boy a size or two down from 1. Have liked him before and still do. Compact and moderate with lovely bone and feet. Super head, masculine with those lovely dark eyes. Perhaps a tad longer in loin than 1. Masses of coat which was presented well. Moved well and sympathetically handled to bring out the best in him.

1ST MR R J SMITH SH CH MELVERLY BUONA NOTTE So pleased to finally get the opportunity to judge this fabulous young dog. He has a head to die for (check it out!). Wonderful substance and excellent bone. All male but with no coarseness. Holds a super topline and moved out well. My one big disappointment was in his coat and condition. In this respect he was overshadowed by his younger kennel mate today. A great pity but nevertheless he is class all through and a very worthy champion.
2ND MR R P & MRS C BOTT & SAVELL SH CH ART-WAVES STANDING OVATION FOR ALLENIE (IMP SWE) Another high calibre youngster that I liked very much. Smaller all round than 1 and slightly longer. Moderation personified. Nothing overdone or out of place. Pleasing head with an eye needing still to darken a tad. But good bone, well bodied and sound and happy on the move. Beautifully presented and in excellent condition.

1ST MS F GLENDINNING SH CH PLAIGLEN HUSTLE Super champion black and white male. Still a favourite of mine. Love his head which is balanced in skull and foreface, well worked with the darkest eyes and melting expression. Another who is totally moderate in angulations. Compact shape with lovely bone, tight feet and good spring to ribcage. Glorious condition, coat was gleaming. Moves so well, showing the youngsters how it is done. Moving more like a youngster than a youngster! Pleased to award him Best Veteran.
2ND MRS M & MR S WILDSMITH TRIMERE TIME TRAIL WITH SANDIEBECK SHCM Another wonderful veteran who I have done well before and still think very highly of him. Another lovely and typical headed boy with kind dark eyes and expression. Compact too and moderate with enough bone. Correct proportions. Superbly presented and in great condition. Moves out covering the ground well and holding a super topline. Very well handled.

1ST MISS J & MISS L ADDOO REULEMILL ANNIE POWER Absolutely beautiful baby of just six months. Glorious headed with dark eyes and the sweetest expression. Well bodied and well boned with tight feet. Balanced in angles and proportions. Darkest liver coat in lovely condition. Super temperament, outgoing and happy. Moved well and as a baby should. Handled patiently to get the best out of her. Pleased to award her BPIB and delighted to watch her go RBPIS at the end of the day. Congratulations. Should have a very bright future.
2ND MRS T E TOPLISS BERESFORD NIGHT CLASS Another little cracker of a baby. So stylish for one so young and in lovely bloom. Sweet and feminine head with lovely eye and expression. More compact than 1 with good bone and feet. Lovely depth. Plenty of coat already which was in great condition. A bit sloping in topline which cost her here. Hopefully that will resolve in the fullness of time but another with a good future ahead of her.

1ST MRS M HYDON CLENTONIAN PANDEMONIUM Unplaced in previous class but moved so much better here. Very well presented and in beautiful condition. Just would prefer a little more of her all round as she is a tad finely boned at present and narrow in head with light eyes. Another that time will be kind to.

1ST MRS S L & MR N J JOYCE KINGSHEATH TOTAL DIVA AT FELLTOPS Liver and white youngster in lovely condition. Coat was shining. I would prefer a more feminine outlook overall but she has a good head with a very pleasing expression nevertheless. Plenty of bone and carried a level topline on the move. Tad long in loin. Very well presented and moved happily and soundly.

1ST MISS S J CORBETT'S TRIMERE TICATBOO
Pretty and feminine L/W/T bitch making an attractive picture stacked. Found her a little weak in foreface and flat through the skull. That said, her eyes were correct in shape and dark enough. Short coupled. Lacking in substance at the moment. Moved well in profile but a bit wide in front. In immaculate condition and beautifully presented.
2nd MR P OSBOURNE'S PETRANELLA EXCLUSIVE WITH BRAEGO
L/W/T bitch and another feminine youngster. Kind expression. Could have more bone and a tad flat footed. Sound on the move when settled. Very well presented and in lovely coat.

1ST MR G & MRS A TERNENT HUNTERHECK UNDER A SPELL JW B/W bitch of real quality. Have long admired her and was not disappointed. Typical and exquisite head of an ESS right there! Dark eyes with velvety soft expression. Correct size, compact, well boned and deep in body while retaining her femininity throughout. Correct set on and carriage of tail. In good coat and condition. She is as sound as a pound and moves with accuracy. Loved her. In the challenge she just lost out a fraction on overall verve but very happy to award her the RCC. Deserves her title.
2ND MRS T E TOPLISS BERESFORD WHAT THE DEVIL Feminine L/W/T bitch close up to one. Lovely style that very much appealed. Slightly preferred head of 1, but still a pretty girl, correct in eye shape. So elegant in overall outline, excelling in neck into shoulder and carrying a beautiful topline both stacked and on the move. Balanced in angulations with enough bone. Moved very well with extension and drive.

1ST MRS B M NICHOLSON LOXBOURNE DISCO DIVA AT KINGSHEATH JW Beautiful L/W girl that I have often admired but wondered whether she was finished ‘enough’. Today I had no doubt. She is a ‘no frills’ bitch – perhaps not the best way to express that she is not over-coated and what you see is what you get. And what you get is feminine from head to toe and balanced front and rear. Lovely, well moulded head. Enough bone and neat feet. Close fitting liver coat that was presented to perfection. Happy and outgoing temperament. Glorious on the move, with beautifully held, level topline. Correct set on and carriage of tail. Completely at one with her handler and her joie de vivre won her this class and the CC, her second. The third cannot be far away for this super bitch. Good luck.
2ND MRS K JENKINSON HOLLIVERA'S VERONA WITH EASTRIDING (IMP SWE) A favourite of mine. Have always liked her. Feminine but well bodied and substantial. Nice with good neck into shoulder. Excellent bone. In lovely coat and well presented. Sound on the up and back. Little proud of her tail but didn’t detract from the picture she makes in profile.

1ST MISS S J CORBETT SH CH TRIMERE TICKET MAID Prettiest of bitches headed this class. Everything about her is dainty and appealing. Correct size. Very feminine in head albeit a fraction narrow. Finely made and lacking a little in substance at this stage but she is very young still with plenty of time on her side. In beautiful condition. Does make the most attractive picture on the move and she covers the ground very well.
2ND MISS L AINSLEY CARLYQUINN CANDY KISSES Another impressive bitch, more substantial than 1 but of course, more mature. Quality, feminine head with lovely dark eyes giving such a soft expression. Compactly made. Moderate in angulations and well boned. Presentation is of the highest order. Moves soundly but could have more zip about her.

1ST MS K & MISS B HOLT SH CH TRIMERE TRANQUILISER AT BETHRYN SHCM Hard to believe this bitch is a veteran as she is in fantastic shape and great condition. Such a beautiful head she has. I just loved it. Ultra feminine with soft expression. Typical and compact outline. Enough bone. She excels in movement, maintaining her topline and really covering the ground, showing the youngsters how it is done. Well done, a credit to her owner.
