1ST WANDSFELL NIGHT RAMBLER (MR S PITTS) Liver and White male. Stood alone but was a quality exhibit with much to commend him. Pleasing head which one felt was well moulded and balanced. Strong neck in well assembled shoulder. Strongly made throughout with strong, well boned legs and tight feet. Moved steadily BPB

1ST LOCHBRIDE THUNDERSTRUCK (MRS J & MISS D LAUCHLAN) Liver/white male with masculine head and expression. Eye correct shape and tone. Overall he has some good qualities but I felt I would appreciate a little more depth in body and of course he is only a Junior, he needs more finish. He moved well on a strong even stride and was well handled and presented.

1ST BERESFORD BLACK TIE (MRS T E TOPLISS) Pleasing headed Black and white. Upstanding on the stack presenting a good clean outline. Soft expression. Strong neck into ‘clean’ shoulders. This dog has super ribs and the desired depth. Stood on strongly boned legs and tidy feet. Moved OK . RCC
2ND EASTRIDING DECLARATION (MRS K JENKINSON) Black and white but of a differing style to 1. Pleased me with his head and expression albeit not as masculine as 1. Strong legs, good feet and held his topline on the move. Little close behind.

1ST BETHRYN DEVIL MOON IRISH JUN CH JW (MS K & MISS B HOLT) Never had the pleasure of handling this lovely male before but have often admired him from the ringside for his obvious merits. Beautifully balanced headpiece. Soft yet masculine expression with almond eye of correct colour. Slight arching of strongly made neck which is not seen as often as some of us woud like but is appreciated when present. Well constructed shoulder and good return of upper arm. Great legs and strong deep padded feet. Depth of rib was obvious without having to go look for it and topline was strong and well held on the move. Correctly angulated fore and aft without getting into the realms of exaggeration. Carried his tail well on the move and move he did. Profile gait was a delight to behold with reach and drive in evidence and his powerful quarters propelling him round the ring with his tidy hocks driving well under him. DCC & BOB
2ND MEONSTOKE HAWTHORN (MRS K C TAUBMAN) One that I have judged previously and such a shame to meet 1 on such good form. Masculine headed male standing on good legs and feet. Mature body and well developed quarters. Moved out well around the ring.

1ST RISELAWROAD NO DEAL (MS C & MR P BROUGH & WALKER) . Male I have judged before and today he had four feet on the floor. Shown in good condition and handled to get the best from him. Masculine head with pleasing eye
2ND MEONSTOKE HAWTHORN (MRS K C TAUBMAN) Masculine head with a dark eye of correct shape. Good bone and strong feet. Adequate neck and he was balanced in angulation front to rear. Moved well using his hocks and reaching in front to give a good profile gait..

1ST POTRAIL SHAPE OF YOU (MRS H & MR S MACLEAY) . Just a baby and showing great confidence. Good honest expression. Strong legs and feet and nice depth of rib. What I might well expect for one so young. Lots of water to go under the bridge but I wish her well. BP today.
2ND WANDSFELL NIGHT MUSIC (MR S PITTS) Loved, loved loved her. Just her lack of confidence that dictated her placing today. She has all the qualities one would look for. Sweet well balanced head with so soft an expression. Good legs and tidy feet. Well bodied and has all the angles. Just needs to learn to believe in herself.

2ND TRIMERE TICATBOO (MISS S J CORBETT) Liver white bitch who was not happy in her surroundings today. Pleased in head and good reach of neck. Well angulated with good legs and feet.

1ST LORDSETT UPTOWN GIRL AT BERESFORD (IMP POL) (MRS T E TOPLISS) Mature bitch with lovely proportions and makes a super shape. Have judged this girl before and liked her then. Attractive head and soft expression. She has great substance all through. Strong bone and deep padded feet. Short rear pastern. Still needing that final bit of confidence to clinch the top spot.
2ND BORDACITY DARK N' DELICIOUS (MR G & MS S LAWLER & WATSON) This is another that has improved no end since last I saw her. Pleasing head if perhaps a little on the plain side of lovely. Good well bones legs and feet. Sufficient neck to remain balanced. Good depth through the rib and loinnn. Well angulated . Moved OK when settled

1ST OLLIWA RUTHLESS WITH TRIMERE (IMP CZE) (MRS A CORBETT) Very feminine liver and white bitch here. Stylish if a little long cast. Sweet balanced head with soft expression. Reachy neck into well placed shoulder. Happy mover which today perhaps gave her the class and the CC as several seemed to be unhappy with the surroundings in the venue.
2ND BORDACITY FATIMA BLUSH (MR G H LAWLER) Classic head with pleasing expression and good eye. Standing on strong legs and feet and has nice depth of body. Shorter cast than 1 with sufficient angulation. Just moving a little close behind today.

1ST CH MELVERLY ISLAY INSPIRED AT LOSSIEDOON (MRS D SCOTT) A bitch you need to handle to appreciate. Once you have hold of her and can see her close up she has an attractive expression which isn’t apparent from the ring side due to her head markings. Newly joining the rank of Veteran and a good account she gave of herself too. Well constructed throughout with great legs and feet and her powerful quarters propelled her round the ring on a lengthy stride. Best Veteran.
2ND SH CH TRIMERE TRANQUILISER AT BETHRYN SHCM IR VET CH (MS K & MISS B HOLT) Thought this girl would have been my winner today but for reasons best known only to her she wasn’t in the mood. Pleasing head and expression, dark eye. Great legs and feet. Mature deep body and balanced in angulation. Loved her but she wasn’t putting her best foot forward and had to take second to a more ‘spritely lady’ today.
