MIN PUPPY - Dog Entries: 6 Absentees: 0
1st ALANEA OUTLANDER (MRS A TATTERSALL)
6 month tri, need to grow on but full of type and the best mover in the class. Eye needs to darken. Excellent legs and feet, good angulation, just needs to come up on the leg yet has a lot of promise.
2nd GRAFTONBURY PHOENIX (MISS J & MR G FENNELL & MILLER)
6 months, beautiful head and eye. Carrying a little too much puppy fat which showed on the move. I liked his proportion, bone and feet. Not as precise on the move as 1. Should come on well.

2nd REULEMILL COUNTRY RAMBLER (MR G & MISS L CLARKE & ADDOO)
Lovely type. Just a little raw and needs to tighten in topline and front but he has plenty of time. Preferred his head and eye to 1 but not as firm on the move. Should come on well.

Lovely headed dog full of quality and excellent on the move, really moving in typical ESS fashion with his front legs. Gets his tail up a little. Needs time to finish in body but great potential.

In super hard condition, tri dog, very honest type and as always from this kennel, very sound on the move. Just preferred head and carriage of 1. Should do well.

1st REULEMILL THOMAS MCNULTY JW (MISS J ADDOO)
Easy winner here, unexaggerated and full of type and an excellent mover. Quality all through, excellent head and eye, good ribs, super mover. Pressed hard for RCC.
2nd CLENTONIAN MASTERPIECE (MRS J REYNOLDS)
Big dog winning this place on movement and carriage. Excellent ribs. Topline could be a little stronger. Rather overdone in stop and too round in eye. Excellent presentation.

LIMIT - Dog Entries: 8 Absentees: 2
1st MELVERLY FIRST GOLD (MR R J SMITH)
Wonderful mover for forward reach and drive, excellent shape, well constructed throughout, lovely bone and feet. His head has too much occiput and cheek bones are pronounced, not helped by being overtrimmed but behind the head he is a lovely dog.
2nd BEECRAIGS BEDEVILLED AT SUMMERSTONE JW (MR T J BEATON)
Excellent type and balance, presented in lovely form. I preferred his head to 1 but he has not the scope in shoulder and front movement of 1. However lovely quality throughout.
