1st LONGBOTTOM & STEWART-RITCHIE’S Gwendariff Unknown Soldier, Have admired this handsome 11 month boy from the ringside.  Masculine, yet elegant in outline, built on racy lines, with plenty of room left for development.  I feel his head could be bought forward just a little at times, as this would enhance his angulation at front, good rear angulation with well-turned stifle…
Lovely head with plenty of work, dark correct shape eye, low set ears, straight in front, beautiful coat.  Moved with drive, holding his tail correctly and topline well. Pleased to learn that his placings gave him his well-deserved JW. BP, BOB, PG3.

2nd SANDLE, MR P & MRS A. Bramblesett Queen of Hearts, at 6 and half months this bitch earnt her place with her racy outline, balanced pretty head with raised brows and dark eye.  I managed to see enough of her qualities when she did co-operate with her handler standing, albeit seconds!!!
Will need time in maturing, but has the attributes to grow on and develop nicely…

1st LONGBOTTOM & STEWART-RITCHIE’S Gwendariff Unknown Soldier,

2nd NICHOLLS, MR S & MRS J L, Romarne Under Orders,  3rd in JNR, liked this boy very much as a puppy… Strong built dog all through, well- constructed with lovely outline, handsome and well defined head, good dark eye… Tends to fly his tail, this may well improve as he matures in the mind…
Moved very well …

3rdCLARKE, MR T. Gwendariff Jam Donut, Liked this 9 month boy, both first timers, both Owner/Handler need practice, could do well…

O, D/B

JARVIS, MISS V. Lowden Fairy Footsteps, Have judged this pretty headed bitch before, and did her well… I just feel she was carrying a bit too much weight across shoulders and had lost her waist today.
Her movement was spot on, and enjoyed watching her flow round the ring… RBOB…
