Puppy Dog 1st: Cundall's Puddockswell What The Dickens of Bleaklee
Nice quality puppy, masculine and full of strength with no coarseness, lovely strong head and muzzle with dark round eyes, balanced front and rear with nice gentle curves and topline, excellent tail set and carriage, coat needs to develop with maturity but nice outline and moves well in profile.

Junior Dog 1st: Nathan & Cox-Purcell's Puddockswell Screaming J Hawkins
Mustard dog, lots of quality, lovely proportions and substance, lovely expression and head proportions with good bone and front though feet could be better, topline beginning to develop nicely and he has a nice, good coat, moves very well.
2nd: Cruden & Kaye's Dryfevalley Midnight Blue
Masculine dog with strong bone and head, good eyes, muzzle a shade long, topline ok but carrying too much weight which makes him lose his outline which would otherwise be better, could have more animation on the move, a shade wide in front.
3rd: Atkinson's Poppipetalz MrBlueSky at Hullpride

Limit Dog 1st: Karlsen's Dariant Gladiolus at Karezig
Nice proportions, strong masculine head and nice low set round eyes, good neck and front is very good, topline looks better moving than standing, good tail set but could carry a little better, nice easy flowing movement, good coat.
2nd: Drake & Kurg's Etsill Mykillkvi with Tollcross
Excellent neck and topline developed nicely over loin but falls away a little steep in croup, good front and masculine with no coarseness, close decision, just think 1st handled moving in the grass a little better.
3rd: Simpson's Dandiroyal Dream Catcher

Open Dog 1st: Butcher's Ch. Mishahda Mischief Managed
Lovely proportions, good neck, front and topline, excellent coat, tail set and carriage, good depth, excellent ribs and short strong loin, eye could be a shade darker and larger for preference but he still has a lovely expression and flows standing and moving with no exaggeration, DCC.
2nd: Henry's Ch. Tymeirz Benibouy
Lovely dark eye and expression, nice proportions and bone and head but would like a little more width in front and preferred topline of 1st although he’s a lovely mover in profile but tail a little straight, RDCC.

Puppy Bitch 1st: Butcher's Bonnybeck I'm No Muggle
9 month pepper bitch, excellent clean and flowing outline for age, eye could be a little darker but she is feminine with strength and gentle curves all over, excellent neck, topline and tail set and carriage, well developed strong ribs and short loin, coat developing nicely, very positive and flowing movement, BP.

Postgraduate Bitch 1st: Atkinson's Coupe D'Hebe at Hullpride
Mustard bitch, nice size, feminine head and lovely kind expression, enough neck, topline ok and nice muscle tone, carries tail nicely, coat ok, moves well.

Limit Bitch 1st: Kurg & Milton's Etsill Hannabreck
Beautiful head, eye, expression, ears and coat, she is a shade long and flat in topline and carries tail high but has a lovely true front movement and covers the ground in a very active and powerful way.
2nd: Simpson's Diddimont I Have A Dream
Lovely shape and outline, lovely head and expression, good topline, tail carried a shade high, she is strong yet feminine all through and holds her outline on the move, could just be in a little better coat which spoiled the picture.
3rd: Roberts's Power Of Love De Cynoeole at Marbledale
Res: Weaving's Dentgate Silk Threads
VHC: Cundall's Diddimont Bella Trix of Bleaklee

Open Bitch 1st: Kurg's Etsill Selchie
Lovely head and expression, feminine with substance, correct eye, size, shape and colour, nice gentle topline and underline, very balanced and honest, tail a fraction high but carried well, excellent coat, substance with femininity and moves very well, BCC & BOB.
2nd: McCain's Blue Violet Flower at Bankwillow
Very striking and showy, in excellent coat and presented to perfection, preferred expression on 1st, she has a good tail and tail set and moved well in profile but could be a little tidier going and back, RBCC.

Res: Henry's Trinzy Hair N'Graces
VHC: Sleight's Ch. Danchester's Can You Hear Me Roar for Bonnybeck
