CLASS WINNERS
 
Minor Puppy Dog (3 entries)
Minor Puppy Bitch (4 entries, 1 absent)
1st  Dawson's AUSTONLEY'S FALCON
6 months old wheaten male. Good bone and substance, very well developed for his age. He moves very well with style and well synchronized, head carried high, good eyes and kind expression, neat ears, good topline and tail set. Liked very much the length of his neck. Feet are ok just a little bit flat at this stage. Long body needs more front assembly which I am sure he will gain with time. The reason to be best puppy male is his aptitude in the ring and his easy and active movement, he really has it!

2nd  Braine's HOLLYHENGE BLACK RUSSIAN
8 months old gray brindle male. Good front and bone, nice long head. Good bite and good eyes, excellent hindquaters and rear standing still and very well coming and going. Very well angulated behind strong rear, very nice topline, well arched loins and good tail. Good underline as well.

3rd  Vaudin's HOLLYHENGE CARUSO OF TORTEVAL
8 months old gray brindle male. Litter brother to #2. Good eye and also nice long head. He needs more substance and is also a little bit long in loin. His brother #2 is much better angulated behind. At the movement I would like more parallel coming and going.
1st  Braine's HOLLYHENGE CARRIBEAN KISS
9 months old dark brindle. Lovely proportions, good size of head & muzzle, femenine expression, good eyes and ear set, level bite. Neck well arched and well carried on the move. This girl really shows a very attractive underline and topline, long body and beautiful loin arch blending smoothly into strong broad hindquaters which ends into a perfect tail set. She covers plenty of ground, moved well and enjoyed the show. This big girl needs to mature slowly, she is leggy and well constructed, very good feet. I would pay a lot of attention to her growing, letting her grow as slowly as possible.

2nd   Vaudin's HOLLYHENGE  BERRY BLISS 
OF TORTEVAL
9 months old dark brindle litter sister to #1. Very houndy and feminine puppy. Good ears, eyes and bite, less angulation than her sister. I would desire more angulation in the rear. She needs to develop in body.  Good tail set. She moved well from the side but needs to improve from behind.

3rd  Dawson's AUSTONLEY'S FORTUNE OF SHALICO
6 months old wheaten bitch. A little overweight today but is ok (puppy fat). Good pigmentation, neat ears and dentition. Good tail set. Needs more time to build up, a little bit straight behind, soft hocks at this stage, coat could be a little harsher. I would pay attention at her bald spot on the right side of her lumbar. She enjoys the ring and moves with energy.

1st  Sumner's DUKESARUM YOHJI
9 months old gray brindle. Very pleasing type, excellent length of body. Good ears and correct bite. Nice long tail set and carriage. I liked very much his length of neck and the proportions of head & muzzle. Well balanced hindquarter angulation Very good topline and underline. Good legs and feet. Good thigh and second thigh long and muscular, needs more front assembly.
1st  Sumner's DUKESARUM LILYBET
9 months old brindle. Powerful and commanding puppy. Feminine expression. Nice ears and strong neck well set into nice shoulders,  good dark eye and bite, nice tail set and carriage on the move, good front angulation and deep chest, good proportion of the upper arm. Good bone and very shapely. Great underline. Moved with long free stride and true front and rear. She is a very promising puppy and the reason to become Best Puppy in Breed.

 
 
 
Junior Dog (5 entries)
Junior Bitch (3 entries, 1 absent)
1st  Gregory's BARRASSY SHOOTING STAR 
AT KILLOUGHERY
14 months old light brindle. Powerful and masculine, well balanced and muscular commanding male, excellent depth and width, masculine head, good ear set and neat ears, good dentition, eye colour blends with coat, great layback of upper arm, powerful neck , very good feet, coat rough and hard, not a big male but has a lot of quality, balance and commanding appearance. Just a little bit heavy today but did the job perfectly! Covering plenty of ground, a great mover and a very pleasing outline, all reasons to become best junior male.

2nd  Das Purkayastha's 
BALLYPHELAN ASANSOL AMONG NECKREBAGH
14 months old gray brindle male. Lovely curves and type, good topline, good rear angulation. Very nice long head and small ears good eye and bite. I would desire a more powerful neck. A tall dog who needs more training and work on carrying high that beautiful masculine head to show his great potential. He has a better rear movement with lots of energy but needs to improve coming and going and to cover more ground. He definitely needs to mature and develope more strength and power. A very, very promising youngster.

3rd  Sumner's DUKESARUM GIACOMO
18 months brindle male. A very masculine head and excellent neck, very good deep chest, well ribbed, good tail set, flat ears hanging close to head, good eyes and bite. Very good legs and also has the best feet in the class. Moves with a nice balance but hocks in at standing, perhaps due to his lack of angulation in the stifle, on the other side his forelegs are well straight and his elbows well set under.

Res  Bridges' BARRASSY BY DEFINITION
14 months old gray brindle male. Interesting type, very nice masculine head and kind expression, good bite, eye and ears. Plenty of depth of chest, good bone also, excellent hindquaters which he used well on the move enjoying such a good drive. Nice tail set. Today his front movement was just acceptable as his two bursas made him lift his front legs and could get not much extension and obviously affects his coming and going movement. I look foward to seeing him again without these two big bursas which I admit is a pain in the neck!!!

VHC  Loder's LORD AINMIRE OF MADALINCA
20 months old male. Good size but needs much more substance and muscle, too straight behind, good bite, light eye colour. The topline is fine, very long tail. He really does not cordinate well on movement and raises his tail. Too wiry today I am sure with a little bit of grooming his head would look better as well as the underline. It is important too see well furnished heads, specially wiry and long over the eyes and under jaw.


1st  Ashton's BONNIES SONAS OF MADALINCA
14 months old wheaten. Good size with good bone and musculature,  perfect bite, good pigmentation. Nice outline good head, eyes and expression, ears often flat, Very good neck, nice shoulders and upper arms, deep chest well ribbed and clear tuck up. Nice tail set, good harsher coat. Good topline with a nice loin arch. Good hindquarters with plenty of breadth and angulation, moved very well. Feet could be more closed and the pastern more straight.

2nd  Sumner's DUKESARUM CHIARA
17 months old brindle. Nice houndy type. Good size, head should be more feminine. Good eye, ears could be better. Good underline, clean boned,  a little bit long in loin, needs to get more substance, good tail set and carriage. I would desire a longer neck. Well angulated hindquarters, moved with drive and grace.

1st  Webb's GOLDSWIFT MISSION POSSIBLE
 FOR INKLEYBOYS
20 months light brindle. Powerful dog, masculine and expressive head very good pigmentation, good ears, bite and eyes, good tail set, good size, strong thick and well covered with hair. Excellent topline, great proportions and balanced male, well made,  very sound and pleasing in many ways. Strong neck of acceptable length, good angulation front & rear. Good shoulders and upper arm. His easy and active performance together with his straight and firm back on the move made him win this class,

2nd  Littlefair's GOLDSWIFT PHOENIX KISS
20 months light brindle. Nice head, masculine and kind expression good eyes. Good pigmentation and good bite, very similar in type to litter brother #1, Very good feet,   good topline and underline. Good upper arm and front, deep chest well ribbed back, a little close behind on the move, good tail set and carriage, This dog also won the novice class. As I mentioned to his owner I would leave him more leash and enjoy the speed.  I believe he will get better movement coming and going.

3rd  Dunwell's GOLDSWIFT SPARTAN'S SECRET
20 months old brindle. Litter brother to #1 & 2, Good head and neck. Good ears bite and eyes, Nice tail set, strong and well carried, In the coming and going he jumps a lot, needs to develop better movement in the ring.

Res  Grimwood's BONAFORTES MELDREW
19 months old wheaten male. Good eye and flat ears. He carried his tail too high at this show. Needs more muscle in the rear, the thigh and second thigh are fine. The front angulation is acceptable but on the move there is no extension of the front legs.


1st  Say's CAREDIG ALIS
22 months old brindle. I personally liked the way her neck fitted into her well-laid shoulders, lovely curves and houndy type. Beautiful feminine head and expression, ears could be better. I would desire she had more forechest and a little more size. Moved well coming and going.

2nd  Littlefair's GOLDSWIFT INYOURDREAMS
20 months old brindle. At first sight I would desire more feminine expression, looking from far away is not easy to determine the gender. Good ears, bite and eyes. Strong topline & shoulders, compact bone, good spring of rib and depth of chest. Covering plenty of ground when moving, today she was a little bit heavy but moved well. Tail carriage could be better,

3rd  Bruce's GOLDSWIFT LEAP OF FAITH
20 months old brindle. Medium sized bitch, good ears, bite and eyes. Needs more muscle. Lovely feminine head and sweet expression. Good tail set and carriage . I would desire more length of neck and leg. Feet could be better, shoulders too straight and also needs more front, her front legs should be more paralell. She loses outline on the move but she is free from side but a bit close front and back.

See Yearling Dog.

2nd  Holder & Howe's MASCOTTS STORY MAKER
21 months old gray brindle. Today he was a little bit overweight for my taste, a lot of things I like of him but needs more muscle on his rear to be able to do the job. Nice head and long neck, neat ears, good lay of shoulder and good upper arms. A little narrow on the front. Would like more width. The underline was not well defined I could see the belly down, probably the reason he could not move well today.

1st  Redfern's GOLDSWIFT FLUKE AT RAINSTER
20 months old gray brindle. A beautiful type of great size with a really commanding ring presence, with curves in the right places, good substance and muscle. Great outline and balance. Lovely head (houndy and masculine expression).  Good eyes, rose ears and correct bite. Good forechest and powerful arched long neck, well sprung ribcage. Muscular hindquarters and excellent topline and underline. Good tail set, long and carried well. Moved very well from side, front and back. Needs to get more confidence in the judging in order to compete with the big boys!! I must admit I am happy he has no CC yet, so I could enjoye judging him. He was my best male and BIS.
