Judge Chris Bexon

I enjoyed this challenging entry today. As the dogs entered the ring the first element of judging was complete. It is obvious that there are differences in the proportions of the dogs, such as the height, length of body, depth of chest v leg length, which all have an impact on static balance and a pointer as to what is typical and correct. General type today was a little mixed. Movement was by and large good and sound throughout pleased me no end. On reflection I was pleased with construction but feel I should mention that a few were a little upright in upper arm angulation, some had clearly in excess of what might be considered moderate hind angulation and there were a small number with light eyes, factors for further consideration in future breeding plans. Temperament was by and large good with the exception of one or two young bitches. Presentation was excellent. I thought the bitches were more consistent in quality in this entry today, although my BOB male went onto achieve Group 1.

1st: 4646 GRAHAM Mrs S Peasblossom Valentino Two really good puppies with lots of potential. 1 Graham's Peasblossom Valentino. Nicely balanced l/w puppy of good height to length ratio, has a reasonable length of leg, with an obvious happy disposition. He has a very pleasing head with plenty of work in skull and around eyes and cheeks, with a moderate stop, he has a good length of muzzle, square shaped, with decent flews, He has good ear length and set, with a decent length of neck, shapely body, straight forelegs and really good feet, tight and round. He has a moderate bend of stifle, super presentation and although his movement is understandably puppyish he is very promising
2nd: 4667 MERRICK, Miss J & MERRICK Mr & Mrs J Tiverstone Statesman At Stormerick Quite a smart looking b/w youngster, slightly heavier in build, though not quite so tall, he is flashy and excellently presented in good bloom, I thought his skull was nicely shaped although for me his stop was a little deep, giving his muzzle a little bit of a downfaced look. He has good ears, pleasing arched neck of good length. He has a good body shape, with a good width of thigh, he looked a little over angulated in rear when overstretched. His movement was a bit mixed but will improve to a more consistent level.

1st: 4665 MARRIS-BRAY Mrs J H Wansfell Nightflight A b/w male, up to size, with a good height to length of leg. He has a pleasing head, moderate stop, with a reasonable median line, nicely rounded skull, with pleasing expression. Has a very nice length and shape of muzzle, good reach to neck, sometimes his topline is a bit uneven which needs watching. He has medium length of back with decent ribs, strong short couplings, with front legs well under his body. He has straight forelegs, with nicely rounded feet, reasonable depth of brisket, moderate turn of stifle and short rear pasterns. Moved ok
2nd: 4633 CLARKE Mrs C L Tigerrock Radio Ga Ga JW Heavier build and a little shorter in leg length than first. He exhibits really good type, very glamorous in superb coat. He has a beautiful headpiece of good properties, size and shape with good plains, with a moderate stop, decent length of muzzle, with a clean neck of really good length, strong topline and decent tail set, I liked his body shape with good spring of rib. Sometimes his front legs were not under him and his hindquarters looked a little over angulated. On the move he was wider in front than 1 when coming on but his hind movement was good.

1st: 4647 HAPPS, Mrs A C & MARRIOTT Miss E Clentonian Solomons Seal Clentonian Solomons Seal. Very nice l/w, stylish, probably at the top end of the standard, but cannot deny his overall balance. He is masculine, very good height to length ratios, with a good dash of type, he has good substance without being overdone, his body is compact, I liked his head, super shape, moderate stop, good shape to skull, lovely finish to muzzle. He has a really good reach of neck, very good lay of shoulders, a deep chest, good ribs and is short coupled. He has a moderate bend of stifle, with straight forelegs and good pasterns and feet. Very well presented in good coat. Excellent mover with drive and positive forward reach
2nd: 4655 JENKINSON Mrs K Eastriding Declaration Another quality b/w male built on slightly finer lines than first and perhaps not quite as masculine. I thought he had a very well balanced head, lean around the cheeks with a moderate stop, strong well finished muzzle, with pleasing flews, eye perhaps not quite as expressive as first, his neck is of good length with a slight arch, he has fairly good construction fore and aft, his front legs could have been placed further under his body to effect. He has a slope to his topline and his tail set is good. On the move he proved to be very competent in delivering sound efficient movement, with some style, with power from his moderately angled hindquarters and ultra short rear pasterns and some muscletone. Shown today in good coat.

He has a good length of neck, good shoulders into a good length of back which confirms his good body proportions. He has a solid shape to his body, deep brisket, he is short coupled. Shown in good coat, just preferred the leg length of first.

1st: 4627 BOTT, Mr R P & SAVELL Mrs C Sh Ch Art-wave's Standing Ovation For Allenie (Imp Impressed me for balance, built on good lines and correct proportions, style and type without exaggeration. He is a fairly masculine l/w dog, with a touch of glamour and class. I liked his outline, his correct length of neck, with that added arch. He was well constructed with a good body shape, short strong loin, good width of second thigh and decent hind angulation, with ultra short rear pasterns. Presented to perfection in super coat of a good texture. On the move he is collected, his head carriage is good, topline held well whilst using his tail to advantage, superb in side gait, with precision in front and rear when coming and going. He has charisma. Dog CC, BOB. I can easily see why he would appeal - Group 1.

Best Veteran.
2nd: 4688 TRACZ Miss J J Sh Ch Meadowdale Alabama Slammer at Acregate Sh.CM Now at almost ten years of age, he still has those qualities which I liked and rewarded in the past. Admittedly an old favourite of mine, an outstanding male, a frame larger than first. I loved his head, so well put together, lean and classical, with just enough stop and a good length of muzzle. He has a good length of ears, low set which frame the head so well. He has a really good reach of neck, excellent construction and really good substance, with good forechest and spring of rib, his presentation is superb, he has just started to narrow across the back end and fall away slightly over the croup, age really, but he still moved with some style and had presence.

On the move her elbows were well tucked in and she was steady on the move. Exciting prospect. Best Puppy.
2nd: 4660 LILLIE Mr & Mrs J M Freeway Fortune Strikingly marked and superbly presented, but a real handful for her sporting handler and difficult to get the best from her without co-operation. I liked her length of body to height ratio. Thought she had a pleasing head and expression, but not as clean in throat as first, She has a medium length of neck, good width of chest, with straight forelegs of good bone, she has reasonable spring of rib, good second thigh.

She has breed character and attitude, with a lovely head and expression, good neck, shoulders and body good topline and underline, not quite as free on the move as first, but a little stronger in pasterns than first, will continue to develop into a really promising Springer bitch
