I must thank the Officers and Committee for offering me the judging appointment with the breed I have been brought up with. Such a lovely entry but depleted by many absentees, but I thank everyone for entering.

PUPPY D/B 5 ENTRIES 3 ABS
1) WIMSHURSTS’ KINGSHEATH REGAL GOLD Very impressive 10 month male pup who has developed nicely and is of correct size and length and in lovely body with well sprung ribs into a short loin. Masculine head well balanced, good skull and stop, well chiselled, dark expressive eyes. Nice L/W coat with some feathering. Nicely boned straight legs and feet very sound mover with nice action. BPiB won over the bitch on maturity.
2) COKELLS’ CARLYQUINN KISSES OF FIRE Very attractive well coated L/W bitch puppy of 6 months. Pretty worked head well put together, sweet expression from nice shaped eyes. Moderate neck into her laid- back shoulders and level back. Good body weight with nice ribcage and depth. Straight well boned legs and tight feet, she moved out well just a little loose, but this should improve as she matures.

OPEN DOG 3 ENTRIES 2 ABS
1) MORGANS’ KENNAIR DREAMING ON A STAR well built masculine 3 year old male who looked very good on the stance. Strongly developed head, kind eye, enough work, good stop. Firm level backline over a compact body with depth, well sprung ribs presented in a nice L/W coat with feathering. Straight balanced well boned legs and feet, moved out ok not having a lot of forward reach and was close behind.

OPEN BITCH 6 ENTRIES 4 ABS
1) WILDSMITH & BROWNS’ TRIMERE TICKLE ME FANCY This for me was a beautiful bitch and one I don’t think I had seen before. Shown in lovely hard condition, well bodied and ribbed back, of a lovely build and correct size with good length. Great shape to her feminine nicely chiselled head, nice eye and colour with expression, good stop and well hung ears. Good neck length, firm back to nicely carried tail. Beautifully presented lightly marked L/W coat with lovely feathering. Straight well boned legs and tight feet moved out with great style and correct action so sound both front and back. BOB
2) HIPGRAVES’ TERNSPRINGER JAZZ SINGER Slightly different type but of a good size and length. Head of good balance and markings, dark expressive eyes, well set on ears enough feathering. Shorter in neck than my winner, and not the angulation to the front, well bodied with good ribcage little long in loin. Nice hindquarters. Nice condition to her dark L/W jacket lacking in feathering which made her look up in the air and unbalanced. Correct straight legs moved out well and was sound enough.

2) WILDSMITHS’ TRIMERE TIME TRAIL WITH SANDIEBECK ShCM I also really liked this 10 year-old male who is so nicely constructed being well angled both front and rear and presented and handled to perfection, for me he was just out moved by the winner.
