Critique - Judge: Mrs Linda King (Kirkavagh)

MPD (5,1a)

1 Lorrimer’s Kerrimere Classique, very confident & mature, lovely head & delightful temperament, well made, good ribcage, neat feet, excellent length to neck, good topline & tailset, moved OK;

2 Randle’s Forfarian’s Hidden Secret with Rionore, not as forward & of different type to 1, attractive in head, pleasing neck & good angulation throughout, correct depth & outline, moved OK, much preferred the tailset of 1;

3 Johnstone’s Clannrua Down.

 PD (0). 

JD (5)

1 Stockton’s Riverbrue Alchemist amidst Kespas, well presented, elegant & refined, very forward, with pleasing head & expression, firm sloping topline which he holds on the move, covers the ground well with fluent stride;

2 Chorley-Newton & Chorley’s Pawsword Priceless to Kerryfair, very well made with good angulation throughout, well presented in good condition, action is OK but loses his topline on the move, preferred head & coat of 1; 3 McDowell’s Gwendariff’s Gonna Do It for Byedales. 

YD (2) 1 R Alchemist amidst K;

2 Stockton’s Gwendariff D’Ya Think I’m Fab for Kespas, body of good length with pleasing outline & coat, well angulated but needs a bit more depth, movement a bit erratic, preferred head & topline of 1. 

PGD (7,2)

1 Lorrimer’s Kerrimere Charismatic, very pleasing outline, excellent length of neck fitting cleanly into shoulders, straight front with good depth of brisket, pleasing head but it won’t be everyone’s ideal I suspect, eye could be just a shade darker, moved OK holding his topline;

2 Longbottom & Stewart-Ritchie’s Gwendariff Unknown Soldier, attractive head & expression, has great depth of body & straight front, moved OK, he is rather shorter in back than 1 & his coarse & over curly coat is a distraction;

3 Lucas’ Bardonhill Eternal Flame among Amberlight.

 LD (10,2)

1 Hogarth’s Redclyst Flash at Halingswood, has a glorious moulded & chiselled head, with soft expression, excellent neck fitting cleanly into fine shoulders, straight in front & well angulated throughout, very pleasing outline, lovely sleek coat of correct texture, in excellent condition, unfortunately he is not an enthusiastic show dog & is hard work to present to advantage, he moved soundly & well enough to win this class, sadly totally ‘downed tools’ in the challenge, such a pity as he could have won the RCC;

2 Lucas’ Shandwick Magic Moments via Amberlight, pleasing head & very nice clean outline, well angulated throughout, correct tailset, in excellent coat & condition, not quite putting all in on the move;

3 Tupper & Rosie’s Staratlanta Elliott. 

OD (4) A lovely class, shame that one I have done well for previously put absolutely no effort in on the move & had to pay the price.

1 Milligan-Bott & Bott’s Sh Ch Thendara Commitment, a superb specimen of the breed, substantial yet elegant, correct clean, firm & gently sloping topline from withers to tail, with no dips or breaks, which makes this breed unique from any other Setter breed, in excellent condition with correct coat texture, pleasing head & expression, neat feet, straight front, wide powerful quarters which he used to power around the ring, holding his topline & displaying great forward reach. My pleasure to award him CC & BOB, pleased to see him take G2;

2 Cuddy’s Aoibheanne Quite The Rebel by Balbriggan, has a lovely head & outline, clean topline & correct tailset, needs a bit more coat to finish & it didn’t help that he was a bit wet, moved extremely well driving from his hocks & holding his topline, covering the ground with fluidity, I would just like a bit more of him. RCC;

3 Cox’s Jsy Ch Tiroen Too Hot to Handle. 

VD (0).

MPB (3,1)

1 Sturrock’s Forfarian Victoria’s Secret, pleasing 6 months baby, moved very well, shown in good condition & very well presented, neat feet, has promise, head needs to break & tail is set on a little low;

2 Ward & Cove-Print’s Colourbox Nightingale, has a lot to like about her & will end up quite a nice youngster, she was totally overawed today & was handled sympathetically, in good coat & condition, moved OK. 

PB (3)

1 Howatson’s Heathclare Fancy Time at Vanders, very mature with firm topline, attractive head & expression, in excellent condition, steady mover, just wish she had a little more scope & elegance but deserved her place & BP;

2 Jarvis’ Lowdon Sleepy Time, lovely head on this youngster, she is well made & has scope & style, nowhere near the maturity of 1 & movement a little erratic, needs time;

3 Cove-Print’s Colourbox Night Nurse. 

JB (7,1)

1 Bott, Allen & Morgan’s Quensha Tumble And Twirl, well presented in excellent condition, pleasing head & well angulated throughout, moved OK, a little loose in front at present & I would prefer a little more slope to her topline but well deserved her win;

2 Whitehead’s Gwendariff Gonna Winsome, sweet bitch with pleasing outline, shown in good condition, moved well, achieved this placing despite the nonchalance of her handler, which might have cost her dearly under another judge, she has promise & needs more confident handling to bring out the best in her;

3 Cox’s Bardonhill’s The New Ginger at Tiroen. 

YB (3)

1 Watt’s Shenanagin Sweet Sixteen, correct firm sloping topline, moulded head with mischievous expression, good length to neck, fitting cleanly in to fine shoulders, great depth to brisket & neat feet, shown in excellent condition, moved very well with drive & style;

2 Nicolson’s Gwendariff Rainbow Goddess at Lochindorb, dark sleek coat, has excellent depth to body, actually just preferred her head, but does not have the layback of shoulder or clean topline of 1, moved OK;

3 Dow’s Shenanagin Stolen Kiss. 

PGB (11,1)

1 Brady’s Amberlight Guinevere, very pleasing throughout, of good size with attractive moulded head & soft expression, clean outline, great depth to body, well angulated throughout, well handled & shown in good condition, correct coat & texture, moved well covering plenty of ground with effortless stride;

2 Stevenson’s Lochlorien True Detective is Andley, very similar & close up to 1, not quite in the coat & condition of 1, but most other remarks apply, darker pigmentation would have made the job even more difficult;

3 Nicolson’s Gwendariff On A Tic Ett to Lochindorb. 

LB (14,2)

1 Gilbert’s Joanma’s Perfect Lullaby, an elegant & quality bitch with all to like, shown in excellent coat & condition, clean & firm sloping topline from her correctly arched neck right through to her correctly set on tail without any break, excellent ribcage & good depth of brisket, coat is of correct texture & conforms perfectly to the breed standard, head long & lean with adequate chiselling, straight front with neat feet & arched toes, good width to quarters, moved fluently on an easy stride holding her topline. Delighted to award her 2nd CC. In the challenge for BOB could not match the dog for sheer panache;

2 Watt’s Shenanagin Scrumptious, another very nice bitch with pleasing topline, great depth & wide powerful quarters, moved well with style, marginally preferred her head but not the coat texture or overall condition throughout of 1. Very close up for RCC;

3 Stevenson’s Lochlorien Scully Foxes Andley. 

OB (4)

1 Henderson’s Sh Ch Sametsuz In A Fankle, another with lovely clean, firm & continuous gently sloping topline, excellent length to neck, in super condition with coat of correct texture conforming to the breed standard, moved soundly with drive, close up, just preferred CC winners finish over croup. RCC;

2 Gardner’s Thendara Jocasta, really nice bitch with all the essentials, pleasing head & expression, good depth, moved steadily & soundly, not in the coat or condition of 1;

3 Gaffney’s Big Red’s Hey It Wasn’t Me. 

VB (2)

1 Stevenson’s Lochlorien Prime Suspect for Andley, lovely 10 years bitch, very pretty head, good ribcage & depth of brisket, correct length to neck & clean over shoulder, pleasing outline, in great condition, moved really well. BV, & deservedly made the cut in the Best Veteran in Group competition;

2 Stephenson’s Drumwhaur Summer Song, another lovely elderly lady & most of the above remarks apply, not particularly happy indoors, consequently not putting all in on the move.
