JUNIOR DOG (0/0)

POST GRADUATE DOG (1/0 Absent)

1st        Mrs A & Miss K Kinsey STURTMOOR KHAOS OF KASWYN – 18 month old sable dog in excellent coat condition and presentation.  Pleasing head with nicely rounded muzzle, correct eye giving kind but alert expression, well placed ears, good length of neck, back and tail. Needs to mature as lacking in chest and breadth behind his shoulders at present.  Moved well keeping a level topline.   

OPEN DOG (6/2 Absent)

1st        Hills DEVERN DENMAM – Tri colour dog of 5 ½ years, lovely head with well rounded muzzle, well placed    stop and excellent dark eye of correct shape, excellent ear carriage, good length of neck leading into well placed and correctly angulated shoulders which gives for a good chest and front assembly.  Good length of back and tail and good rear angulation.  His construction enabled him to power round the ring today with excellent forward reach and rear drive.  BD
2nd        Benton & Wood’s OAKESTELLE VIVALDI – Tri colour dog rising 3 years presented in tip top gleaming condition who has an Aura of ‘look at me’.  Pleasing head with excellent eye shape and ear set.  Excellent length of neck, correct length of back with slight rise over loin, good length of tail. Just needs the time to mature to settle into himself and develop more chest but a pleasing dog overall who strode out well with good forward reach on the move.  RBD
3rd         Cole’s STURTMOOR DREAM OF KASVELYN

POST GRADUATE BITCH (5/2 Absent)

1st       Brown’s BLAMORDER BACK IN TOWN – Tri colour bitch of nearly 3 years old, superb head with pleasing eye, good ear carriage, nice length of neck set in well laid back shoulders, good chest, good length of back and tail, good muscle tone but would prefer a slightly better top line standing, excellent forward reach and drive on the move.
2nd       Trundley’s JUNIPERWOOD JOYFUL – 5 year old sable bitch with a pleasant head, nice eye, flat skull and good ears, decent length of neck with good front and rear construction.  I would have preferred slightly more length of back for overall balance.  Outmoved by 1 today.
3rd       Trundley’s STURTMOOR KLARISSANTS KISS AT JUNIPERWOOD

OPEN BITCH (7/2 Absent)

1st       Peacock’s BLAMORDER BACK TO THE START FOR SARANETH – Tri colour bitch sporting the blackest of jackets in tip top condition rising 3 years of age who oozes quality.  When looking at her in profile she is a picture and I would never doubt that she would be capable of doing a full day’s work!  Most pleasing clean wedge head with correct eye full of intelligence, flat skull, well arched muscular neck leading into well placed and angulated shoulders giving room for a fabulous chest.  Correct length of back, level topline with a slight sweeping rise over the loin, correct length of tail.  When given the length of lead, this young lady has the power of reach and drive I was looking for today.  BB & BOB        

2nd       Lusty’s CH. JUNIPERWOOD DREAM MAKER AT BLAMORDER – Tri colour bitch of not far off 9 years young who by far does not look her age, another in profile who is a complete picture with her correct head, beautifully arched neck, correct front and rear angulation and length of back.  Well muscled and in excellent condition, on the move she has the reach and drive to trouble any and I am sure can still do a day’s work, I just preferred the overall balance and picture of 1 today.  Could not be denied being called back in to take RBB.
3rd       Benton’s ALOPEX MARIONETTE OF OAKESTELLE
