(2)  1 Pollard’s Ch Gillandant Sugar And Spice, fine upstanding bitch who defies her 8 year age as she is well muscled throughout & as sound as a pound on the move where she is foot perfect in her stride from all angles. Strong in head yet still retaining her obvious feminine look. Balanced in front & rear angulation & stands foursquare naturally. Presented in first class jacket to take this class & CC; 2 Waters’  Sketrick Justification, another 8 year old this time male with a well proportioned masculine head & good pigmentation all through. Moderate front & rear angulation with good muscle toning but to be picky he could have better bone. Shown in full bloom. Steady & clean on the move.
(1) 1 Holmes’ Lisjovia Takahashi, well balanced 7 month old boy who has all the makings of a good showman if he matures on as he is today. Good head to handle with plenty of width & balance. Muscular neck easing into well laid shoulders & strongly boned limbs with compact feet. Enough in ribbing for his age. Firm in back & defined in quarters. Topline is a tad soft standing but this is an age thing as it levels out more on the move where he is fluent & sound at all times. BPD & BP.
(2) 1 Kenyon, Ward & Bermingham’s  Charibere Simply Magic at Chezanna, well made young dog with proportionate head that is strong but not coarse in any way. Strong neck into well angled forehand & strong boned limbs with compact feet. Deep chest, ample spring in ribbing & length in back. He has more defined rear angulation than second placed dog & this allowed him a cleaner drive than him. Coat coming but what he has is of good texture. One for the future; 2 Duffell’s   Kalkasi A Star Is Born of Ricaduffal, well balanced 17 month old who still has some developing to do particularly in his quarters. Strong in head with good pigmentation all through. Muscular neck flowing into moderate forehand with good bone & tight feet. Well ribbed up, firm in topline & strong in back. Tail is a tad short but well set on. Steady on the move but couldn’t match the drive of winner today.
(5,1a) 1 Spier’s  Belshanmish Yellow River, well balanced 2 year old out of my RDCC & you can see his stamp particularly in head that has strength & balance all through. Muscular in forehand from neck through shoulders. Good shape to ribbing, firm topline & strong level back. Hindquarters are well defined with correct angulation. Tail set on & carried well. Easiest mover in this class. Shown in full jacket; 2 Wells’ Sketrick Odin, good head to handle being strong & broad without being overdone. Well placed shoulders although for me he is a tad heavy in front & this in turn hampered his movement somewhat. Not as true going away as winner. Shown in abundant coat; 3 Burwell’s Bursville Summer Knight.
(5,1) 1 Holmes’ Lisjovia Slick As A Whistle, gave this boy BD at a club show from junior & my opinion of him then stands today in that he is as sound & true as they come on the move which given his build is not surprising. Scores well in head with strength & balance all round. Good muscle toning throughout which allowed him to hold a firm level topline at all times. He may not be the biggest but what is there is completely proportionate; 2 Downes’ Belshanmish Orange Crush, up to size 2 year old with strong head but a bit too defined in stop for me. Moderate forehand with matching quarters allowed him to move cleanly & soundly. Holds his topline & level back thanks to his excellent muscle toning; 3 Tadd’s Jacko Du Haras De Chante Neige avec Kricarno.
(5,2) Good class of quality males. 1 Kenyon & Ward’s Ch Charibere Simply Special at Chezanna, for me this boy ticks the boxes. Rising 5 years he is in his prime & shows himself to full advantage at all times taking everything in his meaningful stride. Score in head with strength & balance all round, dark eyes & pigmentation. Forehand is from the top drawer which in turn is mirrored in his muscular hindquarters to give him the freedom to use the ring & demonstrate just how easy it is to move when you have the correct framework under a taut body. Never put a foot wrong in this class moving in complete unison with his handler & in the challenge against the stunning bitch he simply changed up a gear to take CC & BOB. Pleased to watch him take top spot in a strong group later in the day where he was just as fresh. Well done; 2 Downes’ Pyrpressure’s My American Dream at Belshanmish, another good dog to go over from head to quarters & all in between. Correct forehand with strong bone & tight feet. Deep in chest, good shape to ribbing, back strong & level at all times. Broad in loins & well muscled in hindquarters giving him the drive to match his forward reach. Not quite as clean in profile as winner on the day but ultra sound all the same. RCC; 3 Savage’s Ch/Fr/Sw/Int Ch Vi’skaly’s Harry Honda at King.

PB (1) 1 Pollard’s Gillandant Xmas Spice, my notes say wow this is one future star, OK so she is still raw as to be expected but under her jacket there is a framework that is so correct in all departments. Her head is coming on well with strength in relation to her size & age. Already so well schooled in the ring & on the move she shows just how well made she is with a near perfect footfall. Presented to the minute in coat & body toning although not yet in full bloom. Would like to see her in a year or so when she should be matured on & on her way to her title if today is anything to go by. Pushed the PD hard for BP but he was fresher & more ready at the end of the day. BPB & RCC.
(2,1) 1 Savage’s Vi’skaly’s Lilla My at Kington, just 18 months old. Scores well in head with good width in skull & muzzle. Short muscular neck into moderate forehand with strong bone & compact feet. Tad soft in topline when standing but evens out on the move where she is steady & true. Not in her full attire today but what jacket she did have was of good texture.
(3,1) 1 Tadd’s  Kricarno Krystal Konchita, better mover of the two here today by some way. Proportionate in head with dark eyes & general pigmentation. Well placed shoulders & ample bone supported by tight feet. Holds her topline at all times, moderate angulation in hindquarters. Steady on the move; 2 Burwell’s Shanlimore Phoebe at Bursville, 6½ year old who for me was hampered in her movement due to being rather heavily built all round. Strong head but not too overdone. Sturdy in neck. Topline could be firmer. Not best prepared for the ring. She has a good framework but it’s rather too well covered on the day.
