CLASS WINNERS
Minor Puppy Dog  (No entries)
Minor Puppy Bitch  (1 entry, 1 absent)
Puppy Dog (3 entries, 1 absent)
Puppy Bitch (2 entries)
1st  Reeves's  WHITEORCHARD ARCTURUS
Nice puppy, more mature than 2. Excels in top line and strong neck. Would prefer to see slightly stronger pasterns, but still very young. Good deep chest. Has a lovely free stride on the move.

2nd Croucher & Blackman's  ELECTRIC ATMOSPHERE
Young puppy in super condition, coat waiting to come through. Nice deep chest and good topline. Moves well in profile but still very loose in front action, but has nice return of arm so should tighten.

1st  Heather's WHITEORCHARD AD ASTRA
A raw yet well bodied bitch, feminine and had very controlled profile movement. Deep chest, nice sweeping underline, at the moment still a little bum high but that should settle. Would prefer a little more bend of stifle, has good strong hocks.

2nd  Campbell-Woodford's
WHITEORCHARD ADHARA AT KILMACDUAGH
Similar comments, although this lass was a little flatter on topline and narrower in head. She is feminine, good neck and clean shoulders and has a good spring of rib.
Junior Dog (3 entries)
Junior Bitch (4 entries, 1 absent)
1st  Redfern's RAINSTER TOMAS
A very raw and rangy youngster, but has a lovely frame and is very nice to put your hands on as his lines flow so smoothly. Head still needs to develop, lacking furnishings at present, but has good eye and colour, nice ear set, strong dentition. Particularly liked his strong neck and excellent hindquarters with strong second thigh. He was the most collected on the move in this class.

2nd Dawson's  RED ROCK CANYON OF KING HOWARD LEGENDS OF SHALICO (IMP FRA)
Very different in type to winner, but is an imposing cream boy. Well bodied with nice depth of chest, and good width throughout. Would prefer better topline to complete the picture, has lovely sweeping underline, strong hindquarters. Shown in fit condition.

3rd  Ashby's ASHGROAVE ALFIE BUMBLE
1st  Forret's
VALKIRIA DELLA BASSA PAVESE AT CULVERCROFT (IMP ITA)
Much stronger bitch, with curvaceous lines. Nice head plains, ears a little large, strong neck and good in fill in front. Would prefer slightly tighter feet.

2nd  Heather's  WHITEORCHARD AURORA
Young puppy with lots to like. Very alert and expressive pleasing head, clean neck and well bodied. Still a little loose in elbow but still very young, deep chest and nice bend of stifle.

3rd  Keeling's FLOYDIAN MOUSE
Yearling Dog (2 entries, 1 absent)
Yearling Bitch (4 entries, 1 absent)
1st  Walters' KILLOUGHERY TRISTAR
What a happy and extrovert lad! Handsome head, nice ear carriage, good eye shape. Well bodied and in excellent jacket. Tail held a little high on the move.
1st  Gregory's KILLOUGHERY KHAOS
Nice flowing lines to this bitch, in super jacket and good furnishings. Preferred her skull width to 2nd, good ear carriage, clean shoulders, strong loin and nice short hocks. Would prefer a little more bend of stifle to complete picture.

2nd  Bruce's  KILLOUGHERY TALIA
Similar comments to sibling – Has better underline and pasterns to sister, nice free mover.

3rd  Crosse's GAELMARQUE SWEET SYMPHONY
Special Beginners Dog (2 entries)
Special Beginners Bitch (4 entries, 1 absent)
1st  Norrie's BALNUITH SHOOT FOR THE MOON
Nice curvaceous dog, lovely small ears, kind eye. A little wide in front resulting in looser action. Has a nice rise over loin. Good tail set and easy profile action.

2nd  Hooper's FLOYDIAN AFFRIC
Lighter in bone than winner. Nice head proportions, strong neck and good topline. Preferred this dog's hindquarters to winner.
1st  Keeling's FLOYDIAN MOUSE
Pretty head, would prefer to see more bone, however has nice elegant lines, nice rise over loin. Moderate hindquarters and was the best mover in the class.

2nd  Taylor's AMARILLO ROSE
Rather tall for a bitch, untypical in head, strong neck and lovely crest, shoulders rather forward set resulting in a dip behind shoulders on topline. Nice sweeping underline and in good jacket.

3rd Crosse's GAELMARQUE SWEET SYMPHONY
Novice Dog (1 entry, 1 absent)
Novice Bitch (6 entries, 4 absent)
1st  Kingsley & Cope's
BONAFORTES WISH COME TRUE FOR DAINWOLF
Lighter built and shorter on leg than 2, but preferred her fore hand (lovely return of arm) and more positive in rear drive on the move. Has a nice expressive head and was in super jacket.

2nd  Catlow's HYDEBECK DREAM OF LORELEI AT LAOISEACH
This is a nice bitch, however rather overweight which unbalanced her. Would prefer to see a slightly larger head to balance with body. Front rather forward set, but has a nice easy gait.
Post Graduate Dog (5 entries, 2 absent)
Post Graduate Bitch (6 entries, 5 absent)
1st  Dawson's  HYDEBECK DREAM TIME OF GRAEFYN
This mature lad was nicely balanced fore and aft with clean shoulders and strong quarters. Would prefer more height to leg to complete picture. Good harsh jacket. Sound mover and good tail carriage.
2nd  Sheppard's  GLENGAIL HHADES
Nicer body/leg ration balance on the leg than winner. Plain in head, nice underline, prefer stronger second thigh. Has good jacket.

3rd  Fox's  NEWDIGATE MARLON BRANDO (AI)
1st  Sumner's DUKESARUM MAUDEGANN (AI)
Quality youngster. Feminine head, super neck and shoulders. Strong bone, would prefer a tad more width to her. Powerful hind quarters, perhaps too much bend of stifle, however was a lovely free mover in all directions. Her very young handler managed to show her beautifully and listened to everything asked of her.
Limit Dog (5 entries, 1 absent)
Limit Bitch (8 entries, 3 absent)
1st  Littlefair's GOLDSWIFT PHOENIX KISS
Nice hound and in hard fit condition. Head masculine, strong neck and clean shoulders but would prefer slightly more return of arm to complete an otherwise nicely balanced dog. Jacket could be a little harsher in texture. Dips slightly in topline, clean easy profile movement.

2nd  Das Purkayastha's
BALLYPHELAN ASANSOL AMONG NECKREBAGH
Very different to winner but lots to like, good width and size, excellent feet. Nice head plains , would prefer a slightly darker eye. Good chest and ribbed far back. Lovely free mover in profile.

3rd  Taylor & Lynch's  
GAELTARRA EIREANN WATSON (IMP NLD)

Res  Colbert's  KEEP IT TOGETHER PHYSICAL ATTRACTION
1st  Gregory's CAIRNSTORM KEEPSAKE
Cream bitch, perhaps a tad masculine but had nice flowing lines, stood over ground well, muscular neck, good body, and powerful hindquarters with nice short hocks.

2nd  Crosse's GOLDSWIFT SWEET DISCOVERY
Another nice bitch who moved out nicely. A little soft in jacket. Strong bone, clean shoulders and powerful hindquarters.

3rd  Campbell-Woodford's KILMACDUAGH AEDNAT
Res  Littlefair's GOLDSWIFT INYOURDREAMS
VHC  Taylor's AMARILLO ROSE
Open Dog (5 entries, 4 absent)
Open Bitch (7 entries, 4 absent)
1st  Webb's GOLDSWIFT MISSION POSSIBLE FOR INKLEYBOYS
Mature 4 ½ year old lad, with plenty of size and substance. A nicely curvaceous hound, masculine head with nice dark eye, velvet ears. Has very good hindquarters and strong hocks. To complete the picture could be a tad higher on leg. Holds topline nicely on the move.
1st  Tebbutt's CAREDIG DESTINY
A quality bitch who oozes femininity. I liked her overall balance, pretty feminine head, kind eye and small neat ears, strong and clean neck set into good shoulders, deep chest. I particularly liked her return of arm which enabled her to be so true in front. Once she settled had lovely flowing movement. Just hope she develops a little more showmanship as such a pretty bitch.

2nd  Treadwell's FLOYDIAN SAVANNA
Heavier set bitch and flatter in top line than winner, otherwise nice sweeping lines. Has good clean shoulders and a smooth easy profile movement.

3rd  Heather's  WHITEORCHARD NEBULA
Veteran Dog (1 entry)
Veteran Bitch (3 entries, 1 absent)
1st  Colbert's NANU NANA VON DEN ERZMINEN
A very fit hound with excellent dentition. A little light in bone but nicely balanced throughout. Expressive masculine head, neat ears. Prefer a little more strength to hindquarters but he had nice free flowing movement.
1st  Sheppard's  
CH CONMERYL MISS SCARLET FOR GOLDSWIFT
What a credit to the owner this bitch is, superbly conditioned. Loved her balanced outline and such lovely clean shoulders, strong feet and moved out so freely.
