MPD (3) 1 Thorne’s Kricarno Konstellation at Pyrajay, 6 months & looks it, very erratic on the move but he has lots of quality & type, a pleasing head & expression, good overall proportions & satisfactory basic construction; 2 Stratton-Baldwin’s Kricarno Kinetic, 6 months & another real baby of similar type & merits but not as strong in the rear. Again movement needs to improve with maturity; 3 Ingham’s Dennajae Billy The Kid.
(6) 1 Holmes’ Lisjovia Takahashi, 11 months, well grown & bodied, decent head, well boned & ribbed with excellent angulation & firm backline. Needs to tighten in front but handled himself well in profile. Beautifully presented; 2 Baverstock’s Kalkasi Expect Only The Best, preferred his higher station & bearing to 1 but he too needs to improve in front & he doesn’t have the hind angulation of 1. Lovely head & expression, should mature well; 3 Flounders’ Gillandant Spirit Of Xmas at Lakamoni.
(2) 1 L Takahashi; 2 Thomas’ Shiresoak Snow Patrol, 15 months of quality, liked his bearing & general shape. Adequate head type, could be stronger behind & not in full coat. Movement out & back could be truer but he pleases in profile.
(6) 1 Kenyon, Ward & Bermingham’s Charibere Simply Magic at Chezanna, won the class easily with his free & effortless movement. Decent head, well boned & bodied, beautifully presented. Well put together & fundamentally well balanced. Just wish he wheeled his tail; 2 S Snow Patrol; 3 Kennedy’s Kentredecim Beach Brother.
(3) 1 Tadd’s Jacko du Haras de Chante Neige avec Kricarno, handsome, upstanding of excellent type. Very impressive head & expression, excellent wither height, good to go over. Not in full coat but what he has was clean & well textured. Moderately angled, moved freely & used his tail; 2 McDowell & Asher’s Granchester Imoulou, another impressive dog for overall type, masculine head, good overall balance & shape but rather lethargic on the move; 3 Randall’s Desalazara Monza.
(5) 1 Mattison, Sandstrom & Nagrecha’s Viskalys My Way Or No Way to Chandlimore, as soon as he walked into the ring I could just feel myself smiling. Outstanding in every way, his exquisite head & expression gave me goosebumps. Wouldn’t change a thing about him & he was presented & conditioned to perfection. Moved superbly & correctly with a natural aura of greatness. Won his first CC & BOB by a considerable margin & looked sensational in the group. I have no doubt we will be seeing a lot more of him in the big ring next year; 2 Ch/Ir Ch Kalkasi In High Spirits, with 1 out of the way he would have won the class as he impressed me greatly but just couldn’t match his intense quality & sheer excitement. Typical, sound, well bodied but not quite the head of 1. Even so easily won the RCC; 3 Kenyon & Ward’s Ch Charibere Simply Special at Chezanna.

MPB (2) 1 Tadd’s Kricarno Kornish Kontessa, 6 months baby understandably raw but with so much quality & type. Beautiful feminine head, excellent overall proportions, just needs to drop into her rear. Although a little unrehearsed her movement was sound & true; 2 Bamford’s Dennaje Sweet Surrender, more advanced in body at 9 months & she has as look of class. Good basic head type, well boned & bodied, just not moving too well in front.
(4) 1 Pollard’s Gillandant Xmas Spice, 10 months, absolutely beautiful standing & moving, so exquisitely balanced & constructed, & she wheels her tail too! Feminine head, so good to go over, just needs to drop into her rear with maturity but the overall picture is fabulous. RCC & BP; 2 Baverstock’s Kalkasi Expect To Be A Star, again 10 months & her head & expression are delightful. She impresses in body & outline but sadly disappointed on the move; 3 K Kornish Kontessa.
(2) 1 Bayliss’ Shiresoak She’s The One, 15 months, so full of quality with the most heavenly head & expression. Beautifully balanced outline, well bodied & coming into coat. Sound & steady mover. When fully mature & coated should be spectacular. Won what was apparently her second CC, should soon be a very worthy champion; 2 Janes’ Lyra-Belle du Haras de Chante Neige, 16 months, good overall type but not quite the expression of 1, as well let down behind or as coordinated on the move.
(6) 1 Fergus’ Daveangel Reddest Ruby, beautiful in every way apart from her presentation as a bitch of this quality deserves to be cleaner. Balanced head, magnificent construction, so sound, moving freely & actively & even wheeling her tail. I hope her handler will put more into her presentation as she is clear champion material. Had she returned for the challenge she may now well be a third of the way there, but we will never know; 2 Savage’s Viskaly’s Lilla My at Kington, slightly lower stationed & not as clean in skull but she is well put together, nicely conditioned & presented & moved steadily; 3 Carter’s Casabear Moon Beam.
(4) 1 Baverstock’s Kalkasi Dream Chaser, well balanced bitch nicely made & moving better than anything else in the class. Good basic shape & balance, head proportions could be better; 2 Bayliss’ Gillandant Anastasia at Shiresoak, much more my kind of head & she has better hindquarters than 1 on the stack but sadly she disappointed on the move; 3 Ford’s Montimur Iris Of The Storm.
(3) 1 Baverstock’s Ch/Ir Ch Kalkasi High Expectations, she has height & bearing, I loved her overall shape & type but she was rather lethargic & not the best coming at me; 2 Ford’s Lisjobia Whistling Dixie for Montimur, not the head & wither height of 1 but well bodied & actually the best mover in the class; 3 Wilcock’s Penellcy Tapestry Of Dreams.
