I would like to thank the Committee for inviting me to judge at this prestigious show. I thoroughly enjoyed my day and would like to thank the exhibitors for bringing their lovely dogs under me, and of course I would also like to thank my very efficient steward. In the main exhibits were shown in very good condition. I do feel that on a sounder floor some exhibits would have moved much better than they did. MPD (4,2) 1 Scott, Wolferlow Will Scarlet.
What a lovely start to the day, this black and tan dog is so outgoing is in superb condition and very balanced. Masculine hound head, dark eye, his outline running from the top of his head through his neck and very well placed shoulders into his topline is superb, with a very good underline to match. He moved around the ring very true and not phased about anything. BP BPIS. Well Done. 2 Shutt Donnadoon Waterloo Sunset. This lovely red has very similar attributes as 1 in excellent body condition,superb topline and under line. Balanced head, good angles front and rear and width all through. I just preferred 1 in front movement coming towards me. 3 Lewis, Trixhund Bring Me Sunshine. PD (3,1) 1 Scott, Wolferlow Will Scarlet. 2 Russell, Stargang Tyrion Russdeck. Red brindle, just a little overdone for me at this age, not as outgoing as 1. Masculine head, in good body condition. Preferred the elegance and balance of 1. JD (5,2) 1 Coxon, Distinctly So D'arisca. Superb shoulders on this red dog, prominent prosternum, good sweeping underline, no cut up. Long ribbing, nicely angulated front and rear. Excellent body condition. Very balanced on the move keeping a good topline. 2 Protheroe, Royalmaple Anky Panky. This very masculine looking red dog looked far better on the move than standing. In gleaming body condition. His layback of shoulder not as good as 1 and is shorter in keel, moved out very parallel fore and aft. 3 Burton, Swingletrees Double O Seven. YD (4,1) 1 Ergis, Siouxline Aaron JW. Lovely red boy. Masculine head, good earset. Elegant neck running onto well placed shoulders moving on to a good topline. Prominent prosternum.

Very smooth from the top of his head through his neck and shoulders into a good topline. He was moved around the ring at a very steady pace showing good movement especially fore and aft. 2 Barrett, Ayseebee Rumour Has It. Black and tan dog, I preferred his more masculine head to 1.In good body condition, tight feet. Not quite the shoulder placement of 1 and slightly longer in loin but shows a good topline and underline and angulated rear which he used to advantage on the move.

Loved the size of this blk and tan bitch compact without lacking bone. A little lacking in strength of foreface and would like tighter feet but there isn't anything else I would change about her. She moved out beautifully around the ring at a steady pace allowing her to stride out. In good body condition. 3 Kerry, Kireton Cici. YB (8,1)
1 Thomas, Royaldach Authorized Queen. Blk and tan bitch nicely put together. Good reach of neck running down to very well placed shoulders. Lengthy keel and ribbing giving her a good underline and top line.
