1st Jackson MOMPESSON LEGACY
She has almost everything I would want in an 8 month old puppy bitch – feminine and balanced throughout, lovely substance and bone, clean neck, very good shoulder placement and upper arm return, straight front, deep body, well coupled, with correct bend of stifle and strong quarters. Pretty head, although her eyes need to darken, but her ancestry would suggest they will in time. Sound and happy on the move, she went on to beat her brother for BPIS.
2nd Smith's MELVERLY DELICATIQUE
Another very nice l/w/t puppy bitch, exceptionally well off for bone and substance. Excellent length of neck set into well laid shoulders, level topline, lovely depth to body, hocks well let down, superb feet, moved well. At the moment for me she doesn’t quite match the feminine head and overall refinement of 1, but it will be interesting to see how she finishes.

1st Rose ROSANNOCH FORTUNA
Up to size but very feminine throughout, her head is beautiful, with really lovely chiselling and the sweetest of expressions. Ample reach of neck, excellent shoulder placement, correct straight front, strong quarters with plenty of width, she was sound on the move and presented in super coat and condition.
2nd Harris ROSANNOCH ALEXANDRITE AT COASTALGLOWS
Lost out here to her litter sister, but very similar in overall shape and body proportions, if a little finer in bone. She too has a very pretty feminine head, would just like to see her eyes darken a little. Lovely deep body, straight front, well coupled, modest rear angulation, nothing exaggerated about her.

1st Corbetts TRIMERE TOUGH COOKIE
I liked all four in this class. My winner oozes breed type, combining elegance and femininity with substance and sound construction throughout. Her head is well balanced, with deep square flews, correct eye shape and soft expression. She has a reachy neck, very well placed shoulders, good upper arm return, excellent legs and tight feet, well let down hocks and strong, driving quarters. Didn’t give her handler the easiest time, but once she settled, it was her overall scope and freedom of movement that impressed and which just tipped the balance when awarding her BIS.
2nd Glendinning & Osborne BEATERS BEDAZZLED
Mature bitch, much more compact in build and shorter coupled than 1. Excels in body and ribcage, good length of neck set into well laid shoulders, straight front, strong quarters, legs and feet as good as you are ever likely to see. I really liked her feminine head, lovely eye shape and kind expression. Sound on the move, but just couldn’t match the extension of 1.

1st Calverts CALVDALE HEARSAY
Stylish l/w/t bitch, with very elegant neck and excellent shoulder placement. Well proportioned body throughout, just right for bone and substance. Well developed rear quarters, nicely angulated stifles without exaggeration, sound on the move. Feminine balanced head, would ideally just like to see her eyes darken a little as she fully matures. Immaculately presented as always from this kennel.
2nd Jacksons MOMPESSON ROYAL DANCER
Particularly liked her size and balanced outline. Very soundly constructed throughout, good length of neck and front angulation, excellent legs and feet, good body and ribcage, well coupled and with super rear quarters which she used well to propel her on the move. At the moment, her head just lacks the expression I was looking for and her eyes do need to darken, but I’m sure the best is yet to come from her.

1st Hodson BERESFORD MOCHA AT THORNYRIDGE
This bitch was carrying far too much weight, especially across her neck and shoulders, so she could not do herself justice. She does, however, have a beautiful refined head, with lovely dark eyes and a melting expression, which won her this class. Her conformation was not unreasonable beneath the excess baggage.
2nd Rostron ZIPHILL TENNESSEE GOLD
Flashy bitch, reasonable length of neck, well developed body, decent legs and feet, moderate bend of stifle, good quarters, moved OK. Not the head of 1 and eyes could be darker.

1st Holts TRIMERE TWIST OF FATE AT BETHRYN
I really liked this l/w bitch. She presents a very harmonious picture of balance, elegance and breed type. Lovely feminine well proportioned head, square flews, good eye shape and colour, correct chiselling and typical soft expression. Lengthy neck, flowing into very well placed shoulders, level topline, straight front, good strong quarters, she moved with great freedom and drive. To be critical, I would just like to have seen a tad more substance throughout.
2nd Eastwood ROQFOLLY ROYAL BALLET
Made life difficult for her handler, but has many good qualities. Shorter coupled than 1, with lovely deep body, level topline, decent length of neck, moderate rear angulation, moved well. Feminine head, well balanced with hazel eyes and kind expression. Would just prefer slightly better shoulder placement and upper arm angulation.

1st Jackson's MOMPESSON PAPER N’ LACE
A great deal to like about this flashy bitch, who should be seen close up to really appreciate her many qualities, particularly her beautiful feminine head, which had the refinement and typical expression I was looking for. She is soundly constructed, with an excellent clean neck and very good shoulder placement, nice size with proportionate bone and substance, hocks well let down and good width to quarters. Sound on the move, she just lacked that elusive wow factor in the final bitch challenge.
2ns Corbetts TRIMERE TOUCH OF BLACK
Quality b/w, with a beautifully balanced outline and lovely angles both front and rear. Her strong, lengthy neck flows into a perfect level topline, she has an excellent deep body and well sprung ribs, super bone and the best of feet, added to which she was in tip-top coat and condition. Her head is more than acceptable, but for me it was just a little strong and therefore not quite in complete harmony with the rest of the elegant picture she presents.

1st Rose SH CH ROSANNOCH CARNELIAN JW
This l/w bitch has the most gorgeous head. It is feminine, beautifully proportioned, with lovely dark, almond shaped eyes and wonderful fluting, giving her a melting expression that I found irresistible. Presented in full bloom, she looked the finished article, with well developed deep body, straight front and elbows nicely tucked under, clean neck, very good legs and feet and moderately angulated rear quarters. She was a little lazy in holding her topline when stacked, but she held it correctly on the move and demonstrated a sound, effortless stride. Res BB.
2nd Cunliffe SH CH CALVDALE MY GIRL OF FALLENLEAF JW ShCM
Another lovely bitch, well worthy of her Sh Ch title. Very well balanced in outline, with a strong, reachy neck flowing beautifully into a level topline, she particularly impresses in front assembly, with good shoulder placement and upper arm angulation, deep body with well sprung ribcage, nicely coupled, standing on lovely tight feet. Well proportioned feminine head, correct eye shape and kind expression. Moved freely but was just a little closer behind than I would ideally have liked.
