Special yearling (10,5)
1st Waterton’s SANDSTREAM BY AN ANGEL AT SANDSTREAM JW
Lovely young lady with a clean and elegant outline. Feminine head with soft expression. Good reach of neck leading to well placed shoulders. Well ribbed body and firm through the loin, good depth to fore chest. Quarters well developed. Free flowing movement, very promising. Considered her for top honours but she did not have the drive of the open winner.
2nd Partridge’s KERRYDOWN MY GUY JW
3rd Jones HUNNICOTE HEATHERMAN
Graduate (9, 1)
1st Dent’s MARZANNE’S HEAT OF THE MOMENT
A young man with a pleasing outline, he has a masculine head and expression with a clean reach of neck which led to well placed shoulders. Good length of body with well made quarters, movement was ok.
Open dog (11,5)
1st Pike’s REDCLYST CORMAC
Smart dog, he has a pleasing head and expression and clean reach of neck. Good length of body, spring of rib and gently sloping topline. Well made quarters with a moderate bend of stifle and hocks well let down. He has good free flowing movement, just would prefer a better tail carriage.
2nd Partridge’s KERRYDOWN LOOK AT ME
3rd Pike’s REDCLYST THOMAS THE RYMER JW
Open bitch (6,3)
1st Hall’s GLENNARA LEHANA
What a super young lady she is presenting an elegant yet racy picture. She has a beautiful head and expression. Super clean reach of neck which led on to well placed shoulders. Correct body proportions with a gently sloping topline, ribs well sprung and good length of loin. Quarters well made with a sweeping bend of stifle. Coat is superb condition. Movement was excellent. Best of Breed, and I was later delighted to watch her win both the Gundog Group and Reserve Best in Show. One I would love to have taken home!
