1st LORDSETT UNFORGIVEN AT BERESFORD (IMP POL) (MRS T E TOPLISS)
at just 6 months this puppy is typical for his age. Lovely hazel eyes although a little loose. Well balanced in body but a little heavy in bone for me losing the raciness of the breed. Hopefully this will refine as he matures. Deep chest and well ribbed. Erratic on the move as expected at this age but when settled moved true and straight.

1st TRIXHUND TALKING OBSESSION (MR J BULLOCK)
I liked the balance and substance of this boy. He has a lovely expression with an almond shape eye and lovely hazel colour. Would prefer just a little bit more length of muzzle. He has good width of chest for age and well sprung ribs. Correct angulation fore and aft. Straight front and tight round feet. Tail well set but carried it a little high on the move.

1st MOMPESSON WINCHESTER (MR R W & MRS F JACKSON)
such a handsome boy. A good balance of length of skull to muzzle. A dark hazel, almond shape eye giving that soft Springer expression. Correct height well angled and excellent spring of rib. Moved with drive just needs to mature a little bit more to complete the picture. Res BD
2nd GLENBROWS HAD TO BE (MR P W & MRS E BARNETT)
Another well balanced boy but preferred the expression of 1 eyes could have been more almond shape. Had a tendency to roach his back when stacked but once relaxed showed off his lovely turn of stiffle. Moved ok.

1st SH CH/IR SH CH MEADOWDALE CHAOS JW SHCM (MR S & MRS J EYEINGTON)
such a smart boy. Beautifully well presented coat. Loved his head and expression which was balanced with plenty of chiselling and fluting between the eyes. Good depth and width of chest. Moderately angled and well muscled this showed in his movement which had plenty of drive. Just lost his enthusiasm in the challenge for best of breed.BD

2nd JOROBADEN NIGHTSHADE (MISS H FIELD-ENTICOTT)
a pretty girl, ear set just a little low for my liking. She has enough bone for age. Would prefer more front angulation, rear angulation is ok once not overstretched. Moved ok for age.

1st FLAMING WHIRLWIND OF MEADOWDALE (MR S & MRS J EYEINGTON)
very feminine bitch that is well presented. Balanced head with a lovely expression. She has a deep chest and well sprung ribs. She is a little longer in body than I would prefer. Good front and rear angulation which showed in her movement where she had great front extension.
2nd BERESFORD LADIES DAY (MRS T E TOPLISS)
Day preferred her length to height ratio. A little broad across the muzzle but the length of muzzle is in balance to the skull. Strong straight front and lovely tight feet. Moved ok.

This was such a magnificent class
1st SH CH MOMPESSON LEGACY (MR R W & MRS F JACKSON)
just fell in love with this bitch. She has the expression to melt your heart. Very feminine of correct size. Totally unexaggerated a moderate neck falling into correct shoulders. Plenty of width in front which followed through the loin and into a well rounded rear end. Not too long but long enough to allow the rear legs plenty of room to drive. Flowed around the ring with ease showing plenty of front reach and rear drive. BB and BOB
2nd TRIMERE TRULY SCRUMPTIOUS AT REULEMILL SHCM (MISS J & MISS L ADDOO)
another balanced bitch. A little bit stronger in head than 1 but still a typical springer expression. Plenty of substance without being overdone and still retaining the raciness of the breed. Good width throughout and well sprung ribs. Excellent movement. Res BB
