Critique - Judges: Bitches Mr Peter Armstrong (Atron)

Breed: Irish Setter ( Bitches)

I was delighted to be invited by the Committee to judge at this show it being some 10 years since my last time judging bitches. I was pleased with the overall quality of the bitches shown under me and in the main had little trouble in selecting the prize winners in each class.

MINOR PUPPY BITCH (6,1)

1st. Hinslea’s Gwendariff Guess Who’s Comin To Northamber. A very promising baby with a delightful head with good expression and nice eye. Good reach of neck, ample spring of rib, super topline and balanced outline. Well angulated front and rear. Nice neat feet. Well presented. Moved very soundly and happily around the ring. Will watch her progress with interest. Pleased to see her be awarded Best Puppy in Show in complete agreement with my co-judge.

2nd. Howatsons’s Heathclare Fancy Time At Vanders. Much rangier type than the winner with perhaps not quite the overall balance as yet. Decent head and kind expression. Good sternum and deep well ribbed chest. Pleasing sloping topline, good angulation. Correct tailset. Very elegant in profile. Moved well.

3rd. Sheridan’s Gwendariff Comin To A Party.

PUPPY BITCH (14,3)

1st. Bott’s Bardonhill Gingerella. Promising upstanding youngster winning this class on overall maturity. Nice head. Good straight front with well placed shoulders. Ample depth of chest. Good quarters. Excellent in profile with nice sloping topline. Shown in good coat and condition.

2nd. Hemming’s Orlanset Foxy Lady. More compact well bodied puppy. Appealing head with good eye shape and colour. Well arched neck set well into laid back shoulders. Good body proportions. Nice tight feet. Moved well

3rd. Elkin’s Twoacres Promise Of Spring With Avacet.

VETERAN BITCH (5,1)

Fabulous class of oldies.

1st. Hogflesh’s Sh.Ch. Lyngor Living Water JW. Superb head and soft quizzical expression, nice dark eye. Well constructed throughout with an elegant outline. Nice straight front, pronounced sternum, so rare nowadays it seems, with ample depth of chest. Good quarters. Excellent in profile with nice gently sloping topline. Presented in good coat and condition for her age. Moved regally around the ring with her head held high as though she owned it and today she did !. Delighted to see her awarded Best Veteran in Show in complete agreement with my co-judge.

2nd. Stevenson’s Lochlorien Prime Suspect For Andley JW ShCM. Pushed very hard for the top spot but today just could not surpass the overall qualities of the winner. Elegant feminine head and expression. Good reach of neck flowing into well laid back shoulders. Another presented in excellent condition for her age.

3rd. Waterton’s Sh.Ch.Lynwood Kissed By An Angel At Sandstream JW ShCM.

JUNIOR BITCH (6,1)

Little to spilt between the first two places.

1st. Naylor & Morrison’s Anlory Carignan. Decent head and soft expression, nice dark eye. Well constructed throughout with an elegant outline. Nice straight front and deep chest. Good quarters and nice short hocks. Moved soundly with drive around the ring. in harmony with her handler. Well presented.

2nd. Naylor & Morrison’s Anlory Carmina. Today just preferring the head proportions and condition of the winner, but will no doubt change places on another day. Kind expression, nice dark well shaped eye. Good in profile, straight front. Good angulation, strong hindquarters, nice tight feet. Movement perhaps not quite as positive as the winner.

3rd. Mugford’s Lynwood Isn’t She Lovely

YEARLING BITCH (12,1)

1st. Meadow’s Gwendariff D’ya Likeme Best JW. Lovely type of bitch. Appealing head and kind expression. Well constructed throughout with an elegant outline. Nice straight front and deep well ribbed chest. Good quarters and short hocks. Moved soundly with drive around the ring.

2nd. Williamson’s Caskey’s Showtime with Bluesprings. Beautifully headed bitch so typical her breeding. Soft expression, raised brows, nice dark correctly shaped eye. Balanced profile, straight front. Feminine yet with substance. Good angulation, strong hindquarters. Moved well, eventually, in harmony with her handler. Perhaps not quite in her best coat today.

3rd. Hunter & Brown’s Braidmount Lady In Waiting JW.

MAIDEN BITCH (7,2)

1st. Naylor & Morrison’s Anlory Carignan

2nd. Naylor & Morrison’s Anlory Carmina.

3rd. Bott’s Bardonhill Gingerella.

NOVICE BITCH (7,3)

1st. Naylor & Morrison’s Anlory Carignan

2nd. Naylor & Morrison’s Anlory Carmina.

3rd. Bott’s Bardonhill Gingerella.

UNDERGRADUATE BITCH (6,1)

1st. Naylor & Morrison’s Anlory Carignan

2nd. Naylor & Morrison’s Anlory Carmina.

3rd. Mugford’s Lynwood Isn’t She Lovely.

GRADUATE BITCH (13,4)

1st. Mugford’s Sangarah Skyline Over Lynwood ( IMP HUN ) JW. Definite winner here despite this being a very strong class. Refined head with correct planes and kind soft expression. Excellent reach of neck, deep brisket. True front, firm sloping topline which she held on the move. Well angulated front and rear. Balanced profile. Shown in excellent coat and condition. Must have a very bright future.

2nd. Bott’s Bardonhill Ice Ice Icicle. Another nice type, if a little more rangier, just preferred the head of the winner. Good body proportions, well angulated shoulders, correct tailset. Nice neat feet. Perhaps not quite as good behind. Moved well.

3rd. Holley’s Wynjill Love Heart JW.

POST GRADUATE BITCH (12,5)

1st. Mugford’s Sangarah Skyline Over Lynwood ( IMP HUN ) JW.

2nd. Waterton’s Sandstream Welcome Breeze JW. Pressed hard, just loosing out on overall balance and substance. Well proportioned refined head and kind eye, good reach of neck flowing into well laid back shoulders. Good spring of rib, nice firm topline. Adequate angulation, moved well.

3rd. Taylor’s Danaway Goody Two Shoes.

MID LIMIT BITCH (11,2)

Another super class with little to separate the first three.

1st. Box’s Bardonhill Afternoon D’Lite At Fernstart. Pleasing head with raised brows and a soft kind expression. Excellent reach of gently arched neck flowing into shoulders. Correct front, good depth of chest, well ribbed up. Presented in excellent coat and condition. Moved very well.

2nd. Ciechonska’s Aoibheanne’s Say No More JW.Very similar comments apply. Possessing a pleasing feminine head, good eye shape and low set ears. Excellent topline. Good angulation front and rear. Perhaps today lacking the drive when moving of the winner.

3rd. Meadow’s Gwendariff Whipsa Daisy.

LIMIT BITCH (8,0)

Another very strong class.

1st. Armitage’s Gwendariff Coco Nut Cream. I cannot say that I have never really appreciated the qualities of this bitch from the ringside before. Balanced head with the sweetest of expressions, good reach of neck, nice deep chest, excellent angulation. Well off for bone. Good powerful quarters, which she used to advantage on the move, in fact driving so strongly and correctly about the ring that her hander had a hard time keeping up !. Shown in fabulous condition. Could not deny her the Bitch C.C.

2nd. Humprey’s Suteresett Miss Curious About Henaleas JW. Another pushing very hard. Refined head with the kindest of expressions. Well laid back shoulders, nice deep chest with good spring of rib. Excellent firm sloping topline and elegant profile. Well constructed and balanced throughout. Perhaps not quite the coat and condition of the winner. Moved well enough but it seemed at times just not quite in tune with her handler. Pleased to award her the Bitch Reserve C.C.

3rd. Bott’s Bardonhill Guilty Pleasure

OPEN BITCH (4,1)

1st. Hunter & Brown’s Fairhaven Louise Mountbatten At Braidmount ( IMP SWE ). Well chiseled head with raised brows and soft quizical expression. Solidly constructed throughout. Good reach of neck, well sprung ribs, nice deep chest and pronounced sternum. Strong loin and quarters. Shown and presented in decent coat and condition.

2nd. Gardner’s Thendara Jocaster JW. Possessing a well proportioned feminine head with a soft melting expression. Well set on ears. Excellent well balanced outline, but of bigger proportions than the winner. Good croup and tailset. Correct angulation front and rear. Moved steadily around the ring maintaining her topline.

3rd. Naylor & Morrison’s Sh.Ch. Anlory Carinena JW.
