CLASS WINNERS
Minor Puppy Dog (5 entries)
Minor Puppy BItch (4 entries, 1 absent)
1st  Pask's BARONGLEN THE NOBLEMAN (AI)
This was a very impressive youngster, of great size and substance with a pleasing outline. He has lovely bone and for such a youngster handles himself well on the move being very sound and solid.  A long and tall puppy, he is well proportioned.  Has good feet.  Liked his smooth curves and especially his nicely rounded croup.  To be picky, would like to see a bit more energy on the move.  

2nd  Pinkney's HYDEBECK HICKRY DICKRY DOCK
Another long and tall youngster.  He has lovely length to him, and maintains a good topline standing and on the move.  Good bone and overall shape.  He is a bit of a handful for his handler at the moment.  Somewhat steep in the croup but uses himself well and is a great mover.

3rd  Sumner's CREENA ATTICUS FINCH
AT DUKESARUM (IMP AUS) NAF TAF
This was a smaller boy in stature with a good shape, very curvy.  Adequate bone for his size.  Would like to see more of him.  He moved soundly.


Res  Severn-Kumar's GAELMARQUE NOMATEUS
Somewhat disjointed on the move, could not seem to collect himself to move in coordinated fashion.

VHC  Dawson's HYDEBECK HEART OF GOLD AT GRAEFYN
1st  Sheppard's GAELMARQUE TREASURED BY GOLDSWIFT
This youngster has a lovely outline and great shape .  She holds her lovely topline whether standing or on the move. She has lovely rear quarters and broad stifles. Nicely proportioned all over with balance, which show in her great movement. Impressive for a young puppy.  
2nd  Catlow's HYDEBECK RING OF ROSES
This long and tall youngster still had a good shape. Very athletic looking and a bit angular at the moment.  However,  I expect she will come together as she matures.  She has lovely rear quarters showing power and strength.  A good mover.

3rd  Sumner's CREENA HARPER AT DUKESARUM (IMP AUS) NAF TAF
The youngest in this class.  Has good bone.  I find her a bit long in the loin.
Puppy Dog (4 entries)
Puppy BItch (5 entries, 1 absent)
1st  Gregory & Warwick's CAIRNSTORM RENEGADE
This youngster won the class on his smooth and easy movement.  He has a nice shape, well proportioned; good curves.  At first when standing he seemed to rise too soon over the loin, but this seems to just have been an illusion from the coat. Good bone and substance; nicely balanced.

2nd  Porter's LINDALL COOL HAND LUKE
Another young male with good bone and a nice shape overall.  While he is quite sound,  I would like to see more reach and drive as he moves.  A bit short in upper arm, and this may be restricting his reach.

3rd  Pantoja's KILLOUGHERY ROCKAFELLA
A slightly smaller red brindle boy.  A good male who moves smoothly.  Could use a bit more breadth to his rear stifles.

Res  Thomas's HYDEBECK HEY DIDDLE DIDDLE
1st  Gregory's KILLOUGHERY REDEMPTION
This puppy girl had a lovely head and strong, long neck.  She has a very nice shape and outline and is well proportioned.  Good topline and moves adequately.

2nd  Addington's WOLVEBRIGG HOLLY
She seemed a bit put off with me at first but finally settled.  She has a pleasing shape, but would like to see her have more bone.  A shade too long in back length.  Short in upper arm. Moved satisfactorily.

3rd  Griffin's MONSTER INC JUSTYNE NAF
This bitch has good bone.  She is moving high in the rear now, which makes it look like she running downhill.  She is a bit flat in her topline and could use more reach and drive on the move. Moves a bit wide behind.

Res  Baldieri's CAIRNSTORM RUBY
Junior Dog (6 entries, 1 absent)
Junior Bitch (6 entries, 2 absent)
1st  Reeves's WHITEORCHARD ARCTURUS
This big fellow was impressive with a great outline and shape. Nicely balanced proportions both front and rear; and in length to height.  Good bone, nice smooth curves overall and a well rounded croup. He moved nicely, but I would have liked to see a bit more reach and drive as standing he presents as a powerful dog so I would expect to see more strength in his movement.  

2nd  Pateman's WHITEORCHARD ATLAS
Another large male with a great shape; good bone and substance.  He was a bit straight in the pastern.  He is a bit short in upper arm which could impact his forward reach.  Moved without enthusiasm, although soundly.  Would like more reach and drive.

3rd  Thomas's HYDEBECK HEY DIDDLE DIDDLE
A long and tall young male.  He is somewhat straight in front and especially the pastern needs more flexibility.  He gaited smoothly and was easy on the move.  A bit steep in croup.  Could use more breadth to stifle.

Res  Evans's KILLOUGHERY RICOCHET WITH BRAEWISAN
VHC  Croucher's ELECTRIC ATMOSPHERE
1st  Heather's WHITEORCHARD AD ASTRA  JW
Presents with a lovely outline.  She has good shape and is nicely balanced.  Lovely forechest.  Has a strong second thigh.  Good bone and substance throughout.  She has smooth easy movement.  An athletic young female who is built to do her job as a huntress.

2nd  Sales's OH BABY! VON DER EICHENKOPPEL (IMP DEU)
A long and tall bitch with good bone and feet.  She has a typical shape and is very sound on the move.  Needs time to mature and her chest needs to drop some.  Could use more forechest.

3rd  Sumner's ERIU'S BEVERLY AT DUKESARUM (GER IMP)
This was a smaller bitch than the 2 who placed in front of her.  She has good shape and a very pleasing and typical head. She has smooth and easy movement.  Not the scope of those hounds placed in front of her.

Res  Campbell-Woodford's WHITEORCHARD ADHARA
AT KILMACDUAGH
Yearling Dog (4 entries, 3 absent)
Yearling Bitch (3 entries, 2 absent)
1st  Croucher's ELECTRIC ATMOSPHERE
A long and tall youngster.  Adequate bone.  He is too straight in the front, and especially in the pastern.  He is shown in good condition.  His stop is a little too well defined which spoiled his head somewhat.
1st  Campbell-Woodford's WHITEORCHARD ADHARA
AT KILMACDUAGH
This bitch has a good shape overall when looking at her outline.  Bone is adequate.  Her rear quarters appear more powerful and angulated than the forequarters.  She has a short upper arm.  Her movement is choppy and she paddles with her front feet so she is not moving well.
Novice Dog (6 entries, 2 absent)
Novice Bitch (6 entries, 2 absent)
1st  Riley's KING MERLIN
This was the best mover in the class who propelled himself smoothly around the ring with good reach and drive.  He is a large, masculine fellow with good bone and size. Nice head, well rosed ears, long and strong neck.  A pleasing outline, although I would like to see more forechest and he is a bit soft in the topline.

2nd  Harpwood's GAELMARQUE DARK HORSE AT FINLOREN
A  male with good substance and bone. Not as smooth a mover as the first place winner, perhaps because he moved around the ring with his head down.  Could use more breadth to his stifle and rear quarters.  A little steep in the croup.

3rd  Croucher's ELECTRIC ATMOSPHERE
Res  Barnes's HAZIANNE'S LAW ENFORCER
1st  MacLeod's BRACHAN WOLF MOON
This is a large and substantial bitch.  She has good bone and is nicely proportioned with good length and height.  She has a long, strong neck. Good forechest.  An easy mover. Presented in good condition. Very typical. Athletic and should be able to function well as a huntress.  

2nd  Gregory's KILLOUGHERY ENIGMA
This was a smaller bitch than the winner.  She has good bone and a good outline.  She has a powerful rear.  At the moment is moving downhill.  Very pleasing head.

3rd  Griffin's MONSTER INC JUSTYNE NAF
Res  Crosse's GAELMARQUE SWEET SYMPHONY
Graduate Dog (No entries)
Graduate Bitch (4 entries, 1 absent)
1st  MacLeod's BRACHAN WOLF MOON

2nd  Gregory's KILLOUGHERY KHAOS
This was a lovely bitch, but she is not helping herself in the ring.  She has good overall great shape and is well proportioned. Nicely balanced front to rear and length to height. A beautiful head.  She is a bit straight in pastern.  Not moving as well as she could.

3rd  Catlow's HYDEBECK DREAM OF LORELEI AT LAOISEACH
This female was long and tall.  The front on this girl needs more angulation and is set too far forward, so she is lacking forechest.  Also straight in pastern.  She is a bit long in the back which weakens her topline.  Paddles her front feet on the move.

Post Graduate Dog (7 entries, 2 absent)
Post Graduate Bitch (8 entries, 2 absent)
1st  Ashby's ASHGROAVE ALFIE BUMBLE
A large well boned dog with good shape.  He presents as a strong, mature male.   He is nicely proportioned and has excellent type. He has a smooth and strong topline. Moves nicely, although a little wide in the front.  Shown in good condition.  Looks as though he could do his job to both catch and dispatch his prey.

2nd  Severn-Kumar's GAELMARQUE RUSSET ROMAN
Another good sized male.  Good height and length, although a bit soft in the topline.  He is an easy mover, very sound, but insisted on keeping his head down.

3rd  Dawson's RED ROCK CANYON OF KING HOWARD
LEGENDS  OF SHALICO (IMP FRA)
A big male, with great bone.  Good head and expression and a very sweet boy.  Bit of a longish coat. Has good angulation, front and rear. Could use a bit more back length.  Short upper arm.  He has a steep croup and needs more reach and drive on the move.

Res  Harmer's DUKESARUM FIONN (AI) TAF
VHC  Fox's NEWDIGATE MARLON BRANDO (AI)
1st  Fox's NEWDIGATE DORIS DAY (AI)
This is a large girl with a beautiful shape.  She has great bone, and is nicely balanced front to rear and length to height. She is a good mover and uses her attributes nicely when gaiting.

2nd  Pateman's GLYDAS GOLD MOTH
Presents as a big and powerful female.  She has good bone and is strong all the way through. A bit short in upper arm.  She looks nice on the go around, but could be sounder coming and going.

3rd  Stirling's CLANLILY DIAMOND DUST
This bitch has a good shape and presents a nice outline. Adequate bone, nicely balanced .  She has a powerful rear assembly.  Could use more reach and drive as she moves.

Res  Bradley's GLENGAIL HHATTIE
VHC  Campbell-Woodford's KILMACDUAGH AEDNAT
Limit Dog (7 entries, 1 absent)
Limit Bitch (10 entries, 3 absent)
1st  Dawson's HYDEBECK DREAM TYME OF GRAEFYN
This dog has a lovely shape. Nice type.  Good bone and substance He is smooth and easy on the move.  Very sound and powerful.  He has a pleasing typical head and expression.  Looks like a hunter who can

2nd  Sumner's DUKESARUM YOHJI
This is another good sized male with a pleasing shape and outline, although a bit long in back length to my eye.  He moved soundly but could use more reach and drive.

3rd  Taylor & Lynch's GAELTARRA EIREANN WATSON
(IMP NLD)
This male has a nice outline; typical shape.  Good curves fore and aft. Moved well but without enthusiasm.

Res  Webb's FLOYDIAN SYRACUSE AT FOINAVEN
VHC  Barnes's HAZIANNE PARTIAL ECLIPSE
1st  Pinkney's HYDEBECK DREAM OF DREAMS
This bitch was stunning.  She is so beautifully proportioned with good bone, height and length of body.  Her outline was what I want to see with smooth curves from her long neck into a solid topline, and nicely rounded croup.  She is well balanced and shown in great condition.  A powerful girl.  All of her details, head, ears, expression, dark pigment are lovely.  Free and easy on the move with excellent reach and drive. Looks like she would excel in the field.

2nd  Fox's BARRASSY'S COPYRIGHT JW
A little too much rise over the loin.  She is a bit weak in the pasterns.  Used herself well on the move and gaits easily around the ring.

3rd  Pask's BARONGLEN MISS MATILDA
A bitch of great size with a typical outline. She appears nicely balanced front assembly to rear quarters, and length to height.   She has a good forechest and nice long, strong neck.  A bit straight in pastern.  Not showing any enthusiasm for moving at all.  Yet she is sound.

Res  Sales's MANEATER VON DER EICHENKOPPEL

Open Dog (4 entries, 1 absent)
Open Bitch (6 entries, 3 absent)
1st  Webb's GOLDSWIFT MISSION POSSIBLE FOR INKLEYBOYS
This was a handsome hound with a typical shape and outline. He has good bone and substance.  A strong topline and good muscular croup.  He has powerful rear quarters with nice breadth to his stifles.  He moves very easily and soundly, with good reach and drive.  Very pleasing and typical head. A bit tight in the underjaw, but acceptable. A male of strength who should be able to hunt.

2nd  Das Purkayastha's BALLYPHELAN ASANSOL
AMONG NECKREBAGH
Another good, strong male with great bone.  He is just a tad long in back length.  He has good breadth to his stifle; strong rear quarters.  He was a bit choppy in his front movement.

3rd  Reeves's WHITEORCHARD ARCTURUS
1st  Treadwell's FLOYDIAN SAVANNA
This bitch has a lovely outline.  She is strong and powerful looking.  I especially liked her forequarters with a good, strong neck flowing smoothy into her topline. Good forechest.  Lovely head and ears.  She moves well – soundly and easily she powered around the ring.  An athletic girl who looks able to hunt.

2nd  Sumner's DUKESARUM LILYBET
This bitch was of adequate size and bone.  Good outline.  She has very powerful hindquarters, which seemed to overpower her front assembly on the move, making her look like was moving downhill.  She was a bit lazy on the move, and could use more reach and drive.

3rd  Addington's WOLFHOUSE DAVINIAH OF WOLVEBRIGG
This a long and tall female with adequate bone. She has a lovely front assembly, including flexibility in her pasterns.  Somewhat flat in the topline and could use more breadth and strength  to her rear quarters.  She is well proportioned and moved satisfactorily, but without enthusiasm.
Champion Dog (3 entries)
Champion Bitch (3 entries)
1st  Amoo's CH SADE PARIS
A most impressive, masculine and mature male.  A large and strong dog in good condition. Great height and length; nicely proportioned; good bone. Presents with a typical outline, good topline. Used himself easily; smooth going around the ring. Athletic. Built like a sighthound capable of chasing down prey.  Would like to see a bit more enthusiasm in his movement.  

2nd  Tebbutt's CH CAREDIG DONOVAN
Another handsome strong male with good size and bone and substance; nicely proportioned.  Not quite the length of back or size of the first place hound, but still of typical shape.  No mistaking this is a powerful male.  Good topline.  Strong, broad, well muscled rear quarters which he used to his advantage on the move.  Excellent coat.  Would just like a little more roundness to his croup. Not the scope of the first place hound.

3rd  Heather's CH RAVENSBEECH REVENIO WHITEORCHARD
This male has a good shape, very typical.  I liked his low hocks.  He has a lovely head and expression and he handles himself well on the move.  Just not the scope or power of the two who placed in front of him.
1st  Tebbutt's CH CAREDIG DESTINY
This quality bitch had a typical outline.  Neck flowing smoothly into a solid topline, and a well rounded croup. She exudes power and this is demonstrated in her smooth, strong stride on the move.  She could have been a little sounder in front coming at me. Overall, she has many great qualities that lead me to believe she could catch and dispatch her prey.

2nd  Amoo's CH SADE  RAINBOW
This is a large bitch, with great bone and size; great length to her and commensurate height.  A bit straight in pastern.  Well balanced overall and powerful. On the move she was satisfactory, but not as free and easy as the winner of the class.

3rd  Sumner's CH DUKESARUM CHIARA
This bitch has good size, shape and proportions.  Good bone.  A lovely, typical head.  Strong neck.  Moved satisfactorily but could use more reach and drive on the go around.

1st   Heather's CH RAVENSBEECH REVENIO WHITEORCHARD
The best mover in this class; smooth and easy.  

2nd  Riley's BUCHAILL CIARAN
This was a large male with good height and length.  Presents with a good outline, although steep in the croup.  He is an easy mover

3rd  Bogart's MASCOTTS CONQUISTADOR AT INCITATUS
This dog is a shade long in back; has good height.  He has a pleasing shape.  On the move he is sound but he could use more reach and drive. Also steep in croup.

Res  Das Purkayastha's RAVENSBEECH ROMANUS
AMONG NECKREBAGH ShCM
1st  Bradley's GLENGAIL GGLENYS
This girl had a lovely shape; she is both long and tall with good proportions. Nice long, strong neck flowing smoothly into a solid topline.  Good bone.  Presented a nice outline.  She is a smooth mover on the go around and uses herself efficiently.

2nd  Evans's BRAEWISAN ORLAITH
A smaller more compact girl than the first place.  She also has a good shape and is nicely balanced. And easy mover.  Not the scope of the hound in first place.

3rd  Cramphorn's YELXBA VICTORIA ShCM
This bitch has a nice shape.  She is a substantial girl with good curves. Rise over loin starts a bit early.   She has a pleasing head.  A good mover.
