Postgraduate Dog 1st: Cox-Purcell & Miller's Puddockswell Jelly Roll Morton
Stood alone, but what a lovely dog. Beautiful head and melting expression. Good front, nice jacket & strong rear end, good tail set. He was a little unsettled on the move on the day, but I’m sure with a few more shows under his belt he'll do well.

A lot to like about this winning young mustard. Well muscled, and in good shape, nicely balanced head, good eye & mouth, nicely presented, in good coat, moved well.

2nd: Poole's Hawkesmill Merlon
He is slightly heavier than 1, but isn’t too big. He has an attractive head, good front and rear angulation. Good coat, I liked this boy, but would have liked to have seen more energy on the move.

Open Dog 1st: France's Int Ch. Back To My Roots at Luna Caprese with Torbrae
Well known winning dog and today was his day. A beautiful, well presented, well handled Dandie in good coat, good topline and tail carriage. Strong hindquarters, moved steadily in the longish grass. Didn't put a foot wrong . Well deserved DCC.

2nd: Fox's Puddockswell Hoodwink
This was a larger dog than 1, and of course, lacking 1s maturity, but what a lovely boy. I loved his overall type. Beautiful head & eye, big skull, strong neck. Excellent coat, He's quite an upstanding sort of dog who held his head up in the ring, looking around and wanting to be noticed. He needs his forechest to drop a little, but he moves well and I shall watch his progress with interest. RCC.

Postgraduate Bitch 1st: McCain's Blue Violet Flower at Bankwillow
What a little cracker. Very pretty and feminine Pepper with beautiful dark eye giving her a melting expression. Good front and nice moderate topline. Coat good and very well presented. Needs a little more muscle in her hindquarter to give more positive back movement.

Veteran Bitch 1st: Harcourt-Morris's Dainty Dandies Royal Dutch Emma for Lenacourt
Neat little bitch, stood alone, but so pretty. Good coat. Attractive, balanced head with plenty of skull, good teeth, expressive eyes. Would ideally like her a little longer in body, and a little more of her, but she showed herself off so well and moved out keeping her topline and good tail carriage. Well presented and handled. Best veteran.
