1st  Plachcinski's AUSTONLEY'S CANTONA OOH AHH
11 month well grown pup with a nice head and expression. He has a good shoulder and return of upper arm with good breadth across the fore chest. Nice spring of rib and length of body, good topline and underline. Would like a bit more bend of stifle but hopefully this will come. He moved well with a long stride covering the ground well. Pleased to award him RBD.

2nd  Redfern's GOLDSWIFT FLUKE AT RAINSTER
Another well grown lad of 10 months with a good head and expression. Not quite the shoulder and return of my winner but has a lot of growing to do. Good length and proportions and nice outline. Sound mover not quite the stride length of my first.

3rd  Dunwell's GOLDSWIFT SPARTAN'S SECRET

1st  Sheppard's GOLDSWIFT ENCHANTED LEGACY
Nearly eleven months and of nice proportions. She has a nice head, good body and moved well. Unfortunately very unsettled in the ring but once judging was finished suddenly showed her confident, happy side.

2nd  Bruce's GOLDSWIFT LEAP OF FAITH
All these pups are litter mates and very similar. I preferred the head and expression of this one and she too moved well. Close decision.

3rd  Braddyll's GOLDSWIFT SERENDIPITY

2nd  Grimwood's BONAFORTE'S MELDREW
14 month wheaten dog with a nice head, eye and ear. He is very shapely with a fair shoulder and return, good depth of chest with a nice tuck running into nicely angulated hind quarters. "Arthur" as I soon discovered was not always the most easy to show but he coped well on the damp grass and moved quite well. Not the length of stride of my first.

3rd   Ashton's MADALINCA SPRING CU BRENN

1st  Wilkes's LINDALL PARIS FOR STRICKENOAK
Just out of puppy by a few days this is a nice bitch. She has a nice head, good length of body, good shoulder and depth of chest. She is well off for bone and has a good outline. Moved quite well.

2nd  Gregory's 
MADALINCA SPRING JOY OF KILLOUGHERY
This girl is more mature at nearly seventeen months with good depth of chest, a nice head and good ears. She is a little shorter in body but moved well.

3rd  Flood's PHESTRAL OONACH AT BARONFORE


 
 
 
Yearling Dog (5 entries, 2 absent)
Yearling Bitch (1 entry)
1st  Anderson & White's WHITGLEN LEADER
A lovely imposing young male of good size and substance but also quality. Nice head, a strong neck running into a well laid shoulder and good return of upper arm. He has good depth of chest for age and carry back of ribs, nice underline and topline. Strong well angulated hind quarters and a super tail. He moved extremely well both in profile and up and back with an easy ground covering stride. He still needs more time to mature but today I was pleased to award him BD and BIS.

2nd  Pask's 
NAPOLEONE DELLA BASSA PAVESE (IMP ITA)
A very well grown  and impressive dog with a lovely outline. He has a nice head, good neck and deep chest with nice hind quarters. Standing he looked super but not moving as well today as my winner.

3rd  Colbert's 
KEEP IT TOGETHER PHYSICAL ATTRACTION


1st   Anderson & White's WHITGLEN TALLA
Sister to the best dog this twenty month dark bitch is well made all though and moved well. Not the presence of her brother. Would like slightly better ears.

This lady is nearly eight and a half years old and looked in super condition. Lovely feminine head and rose ears.

She showed well, moved soundly and well with an air of "I've done it before just leave it to me." Pleased to award her RBB.
