1. Mrs Stephenson - Drumwhaur Summer Song (Irish Setter)
Very much liked both of these veterans. Winner an 8 year old Irish Setter bitch, liked her racy outline so feminine and stylish. She has a lovely elegance to her head complimented with the correct shaped dark eye and well placed ears. When stood she has a flow from nose to tail, showing the slight slope to the topline. Good width to the thigh and bend of stifle. Moving out showing good drive

1. Mrs Davie - Jonala Secret Love At Lochfrae
2 year old bitch, who has lots to like about her. When stood holds a pleasing outline, with the typical raciness. Such a lovely head, long and elegant, oval skull, raised brows and dark eye to give a super gentle expression. She has a good length of neck and forechest, just enough depth. She has a well held topline both stood and on the move.

1. Mrs Stevenson - Drumwhaur Sunshine Girl
Thought this 3 year old bitch to be of a lovely size and shape when stood.  She has femininity and the racy appearance yet is nicely boned with substance. Most feminine of heads, good length of neck, which flowed into her firmly held slightly sloping topline and well set on tail. Liked her hindquarters, showing good width with length and a good bend of stifle. Correct amount of width and depth to the body, and nice spring to the ribs. Shown in a rich chestnut coat.  - BOB
