Critque - Judges: Dogs: Mrs Lynda Fauvrelle

I would like to thank the NGA for the invitation to judge at this prestigious show – my first at this level; my stewards Chris and Lynda for their assistance and the exhibitors who allowed me the privilege to assess their stock. Presentation was, without exception, of a high standard. I found among my entry many quality exhibits who, through sheer luck of who they came up against, were placed lower in my line ups but who were much appreciated nonetheless. On the whole, tails were set on correctly but I did find some eyes that could have been a shade darker and some plainer heads and forefaces which detract from that quizzical Irish expression we should be seeking to retain. I was looking for correct construction, shape, sound movement and the archetypal Irish Setter attributes and I feel my placings reflected that. It’s good to see some promising youngsters coming through.

Veteran (5,1)

Both my 1st and 2nd placings I did well for as youngsters and I’m pleased they both went on to gain their titles.

1st   Pullen & Atkin Sh Ch Harvancourt Harlem At Jacingail

Looks a different dog to what he was a year ago, more elegant and racy. Nicely structured head with soft dark eye, chiselling under and classic stop, low set ears. Clean muscled neck set nicely into well laid shoulders, through gently sloping topline to correct tailset. Good forechest, bone and rib sprung well back. Strong over loin and croup, good width of 2nd thigh, correct rear angulation with low set hocks he moved freely around the ring. A shame he could not stay to challenge for Best Veteran.

2nd   Gratton Sh Ch Bardonhill Floating Moon Into Glenlaine JW ShCM

A pleasing head and gentle quizzical eye, muscled neck without coarseness. Good layback of shoulder leading into sloping topline, correct fore and aft angulation, rib and depth of chest although not so well off for forechest as 1. Used his tail on the move, a little warm for him perhaps as I have seen him more settled.

3rd   Gardner Sh Ch Riqitta Authentic

Res Corless Bardonhill Swift Eagle

Minor Puppy Dog (2,2)

 

Puppy Dog (6,2)

1st   Prangle & Cuff Special Reserve With Heathclare

Lovely head planes with correct eye, low set ears and good reach of neck into nice shoulder placement, well off for forechest. His front and rear angulation allowed him to move out with drive once he had settled. BPD

2n   Sargent Danaway My Sweet Lord

Another with good substance, this lad possesses a very pleasing head and foreface with strong neck into correct layback of shoulder, he is proportionate and is another using correct angulations to move with reach and drive retaining his gently sloping topline with good tailset as he went.

3rd   Danks-Kemish Oakdene Ocean Crest Over Alolfrana NAF TAF

Res Mather Hazelbeck Ghillie

 

Junior Dog (11,3)

1st   Lucas Bardonhill Eternal Flame Among Amberlight JW

Excellent topline stacked and moving, love his head with correct skull shape and expressive brow and chiselling. Good length and strength of neck and well off for sternum, each part settling nicely into the next from shoulder to topline to croup to tailset. Strode out purposefully with level flagging tail.

2nd   Lorrimer Kerrimere Charismatic

Another with excellent topline, similar attributes and comments as for 1st, has good width of chest and spring of rib, in beautiful condition and flowed around the ring. A striking young man.

3rd   Pym Thendara The Watchmaker

Res Milligan-Bott & Bott Thendara Tick Tock

VHC Weir Kerrimere Irresistable

 

Yearling Dog (9,2)

A close decision between 1 and 2 in this class, not alike but both have attributes that I found appealing.

1st   Milligan-Bott, Bott & Lauwers Nucky Of McBirdy Lux JCh BE/NE/Lux JW

The flair of this young lad caught my eye. A beautiful outline, classic head structure with soft dark eye and lovely Irish expression. Excellent sternum with good width and depth of chest and well sprung rib. Lovely reach and strength of neck set into good shoulder lay, gently sloping topline, good width of loin and rearquarters with right length of coupling, no coarseness, all style. In excellent coat and condition. Moved out with panache. Among my considerations for RCC.

2nd   Jones Hunnicote Handyman

This young man’s musculature and balance are excellent and spot on for his 18 months. Lovely head with soft dark eye sits on a strong neck which then settles into his excellent front construction, he is well off for forechest, has good depth of chest and spring of rib, is strong through his loin and croup and his tail is set on level and is used to advantage on the move in which department he excels as it is so natural. A joy to go over and watch.

3rd   Gardiner Harreds Harlie Of Blaysdell

Res Corless Swiftlark First Knight

VHC Gratton Bardonhill Snow Wolf With Glenlaine

 

Novice Dog (6,1)

1st   Thendara The Watchmaker

Very similar comments apply to this young boy as for my 2nd in Junior. Not overly large but so well put together and proportioned with good musculature for his 14months. Well constructed front and rear, substance throughout, good head planes and soft eye, strong muscled neck. He excels on the move holding his topline. Another who was a joy to go over.

2nd   Oakdene Ocean Crest Over Alolfrana NAF TAF

3rd in Puppy and still a baby at 10mths he has a pleasing head and expression, long lean neck and excellent forechest and spring of rib for his age, excels in stifle and has substance without being overdone in any way. Possibly carrying a little puppy fat today but he moved out well to take this place.

3rd   Thendara Tick Tock

Res Russell Strathmead Huckleberry

VHC Andrews Millcroft Moon Riot

 

Graduate Dog (10,4)

1st   Rowbottom Lanstara Spring Moon

Have admired this boy from a puppy. He excels in outline and drive and reach of movement driving from low set hocks. Beautiful head construction with raised brow and dark eye, requisite chiselling. Correct length of coupling and level tailset. Presented in lovely coat and condition. Still some maturing to do but can only get better. Pleased to award him the RCC.

2nd   Partridge Kerrydown One Man

Similar attributes to 1, strong and proportionate, substance without coarseness. Has lovely head planes and dark expressive eye with soft gentle Irish look. Powerful driving movement from good rear assembly well muscled with good width of second thigh. Well presented in plentiful dark coat.    

3rd   Wood Danaway Goodness Me

Res Hyslop Gwendariff Justin Thyme JW

VHC Hoskins Sandstream Just A Breeze

 

Post Graduate Dog (16,3)

1st   Hemmings Orlanset The Rocker JW

Stylish dog who until recently was way too fast on the move but his owner must have been working on this as he has slowed considerably and moved out with more reach and steady drive from the rear. I would prefer more work in his head and foreface but his classic arched neck sits cleanly into his shoulders through his sloping topline to clean tailset, good construction throughout and good width of second thigh. Well done.

2nd Prangle Heathclare Old Glory JW ShCM

Believe this is another I have done well for as a youngster. Maturing nicely, I prefer his head but didn’t have quite the drive of 1, nicely put together with deep chest and plenty of lung room, good forearm and layback of shoulder, strong over loin and quarters.

3rd   MacAulay Caskeys Mischief Of Stylersetts JW

Res Heppell Deevonville Santana

VHC Condron Covarney Macaroon

 

Mid Limit Dog (12,4)

1st   Weir Deevonville El Condor Passa

Like the shape and style of this boy, classic head, low set ears and expressive eye, dark coated, good conformation throughout with good bone, tail set on correctly and held level on move. Pipped 2nd to the post on this.

2nd   Cuddy Suteresett Rebel Rouser In Balbriggan JW

Similar to 1 and a picture stacked. Strode out well, just lost out holding his tail a little high on the move and not so well off for sternum but a lovely head shape and dark almond eye with mischievous look, ribs sprung well back through to strong hindquarters.

3rd  Stubbs Riverbrue Zeus JW

Res Beresford Polmennor Funtime ShCM

VHC Savage Gwendariff The Ringmaster

 

Limit Dog (10,2)

A close class, a couple were carrying a little too much weight.

1st   O’Connor Caispern Polonius

My notes say ‘rugged Irish’. A dark coated masculine dog but not coarse, I would prefer a little more work in his head and a little more overall elegance. Nonetheless he has all the right attributes being sound with deep chest and well sprung rib. He is well boned and his front and rear angulation is spot on, neat feet, flows around the ring.

2nd   Sturrock Forfarian I’m Sexy An I Know It JW

Quite different to 1, I have admired this boy ringside from a puppy. Lovely flowing topline and angulations, long lean head, low ears, good reach of neck, depth of brisket. A sound balanced mover but just didn’t seem to be at his best today hence 2nd place.

3rd   Lucas Shandwick Magic Moments Via Amberlight

Res Cohen Caispern Lorenzo With Shushana JW ShCM

VHC Deevonville Santana

 

Open Dog (8,1)

1st   Milligan-Bott, Bott & Lauwers Int/Multi Ch Paris Match Thendara JW

He filled my eye and didn’t disappoint. Presented in top condition, excels in outline, long lean head with raised stop and brow, soft dark eye with mischievous expression, chiselled foreface, dark nose, long low set ears. Good bone, shoulder placement and rear angulation, every part fitting smoothly into the next from his muscular arched neck settling cleanly into his shoulders, flowing topline, tail set on at correct level. All this enabling him to flow so freely around the ring. He possesses a certain pizzazz. Awarded him Best Puppy in 2013 and so pleased to see he is fulfilling the promise he showed then. More than happy to award him the CC today and delighted to see him go BOB under referee Frank Kane.

2nd   Milligan-Bott & Bott Sh Ch Thendara Pot Noodle JW

Another presented, as ever, in excellent condition and who just flows from nose to tail. Love his head and dark expressive eye with that certain glint in it. Long low set ears, strong muscled arched neck, every compartment ticked the boxes. His shoulder placement, rear angulation and strong hock to heel enabled him to drive effortlessly around the ring. A pleasure to go over and a worthy Champion and ambassador of the breed.

3rd   Hill-Decoster Vicary’s Keykeeper

Res Richardson Sh Ch Brabrook Flash Harry At Montgreenan ShCM

VHC Rutherford Sh Ch Clonageera Kinross Love Barolo (Imp USA)

 

Good Citizen Dog Scheme Dog (7,2)

1st   Deevonville Santana

Res in Post Graduate and VHC in Limit he won this class on his balanced movement, elegant lines and good condition. Strong arched neck, nice fore and rearquarters with strong 2nd thigh, maintained his outline throughout.

2nd   Berry & Morris Brinara Independant

Lovely outline again, classic head in profile, good bone and construction. Moved ok.
