1st  Macaulay's ASHGROAVE FORASTER VIA GARTLOVE
At just 6 months old a very promising puppy, balanced, well boned and substantial throughout, typical head of the correct proportions, strong muzzle and a dark eye, correct bite. Long neck, well laid shoulders and a deep chest, ribs well sprung and carried well back, correct length of loin, well constructed rear quarters, with well bent stifles and low hocks, correct feet, good coat texture. He moved soundly coming and going and strode out in profile. 

2nd  Braine's HOLLYHENGE BLACK RUSSIAN

Deep chest and ribs well sprung, topline correct and nicely angulated rear quarters, coat of the correct texture. Nicely angulated rear quarters and low set hocks, his front movement was a little unsettled today and I just preferred the movement of the first placed puppy.

3rd  Evans-Jones & Halsall's VALHERU RHAGNAR
A 7 month old, tall and raw at the moment but showing a great deal of promise for the future, masculine and well boned, head and muzzle of the correct proportions, dark eyes and the correct bite and dentition.
