Critique - judge Alec Stewart

My thanks to the committee of Wickford, Basildon & District Canine Society and members for a very well run show, it was a pleasure to judge my beloved Irish Setters and there were some good examples of the breed, but a few would benefit with having more condition.


1st. Suteresett King of Hearts (Gisby Mrs T & Miss G ).

Found this youngster to be in a class of his own today, most handsome in head, with raised brow, clean through the neck and shoulders, good bone, in good condition and coat, a very well balanced dog. Should do well in his show career. Went on to win Puppy Gp 2 BPIB

2nd Glenlaine Mrs Tiggy Winkle (Gratton Mr A & Mrs E)

3rd Glenlaine Floppsy Moppsy (Gratton Mr A & Mrs E)


1st. Bardonhill Ginger Genius (Gratton Mr A & Mrs E)

 In good coat, pleasing head, correct eye shape and colour, correct ear set, good crest of neck, good bone, moved steadily around the ring,

2nd Sutteresett Pina Colada (Gisby Mrs T & Miss G)

3rd Sutteresett Tom Collins at Bransett (Parsons & Gisby Mrs D, Miss J, Mrs T & Miss G)


1st. Covarney Lil' Rascal JW (Bailey & Condron Mr J & Mrs C, Mr G & Mrs K)

Another top class youngster, handsome in head, pleasing expression, with dark eye, raised brow, good work to his foreface, good crest of neck, good bone, excellent depth of fore chest, correct cat like feet, in good coat, moved well. BOB

2nd  Sutteresett Pina Colada ( Gisby Mrs T & Miss G)

3rd  Sutteresett Tom Collins at Bransett (Parsons & Gisby Mrs D, Miss J, Mrs T & Miss G)


1st Braidmount Lady of the Lake at Bransett (Parsons Mrs D & Miss J)

Liked this 2yr old girl a lot, racy and very pretty with a melting expression, correct eye colour and shape, correct ear set, good crest of neck and in good coat, neat feet, very sound on the move, held her topline with a lashing tail action, she really loved herself, which was nice to see, ate the ground up, was a pleasure to see her move around the ring, even in the heat of the day, pushed my BOB very hard.
