FOX WIRE JUDGE MANCHESTER 18
A pleasing entry with quite a few absent on the day. I was struck by the number not in full coat, but I guess exhibitors are aiming for them to be spot on in March.
1 England's Ashleyheath Nemesia Fire. He has a pleasing outline. Lengthy head, well set ears. Super eye and expression. Lengthy neck with well laid shoulder. Stands on good legs and feet. Level in topline. Could be slightly better ribbed back. Well set tail. Moderate hind angulation with low hocks. Could be better in hind action, parallel in front. In his undercoat, but furnishings harsh.
1 Adshead's Shoalhill Too Hot To Handle. Smart and showy d. Lengthy and clean head, slight stop, strong jaws. Super eye and expression. Lengthy neck that flows into his shoulders. Good depth of chest. Short loin. Could be firmer in topline, tail well set. Moderate hind angulation. Can go slightly close away and would prefer more stride. Coat is ok.
1 Dipple's Marvidyne Follow The Trend. Masculine d full of character. Lengthy head, clean cheeks. Dark eyes and carries his ears well. Lengthy neck. Good depth of chest. Well ribbed back. Can be a little slack in topline. Well set tail. Lots of hind angulation with low hocks. Coat coming through. Moved fairly well.
Strong class where performance and movement were deciding factors.
1 Malzoni's Am Ch Hampton Courts Monte Cristo. Real showman who went very well. He has a lengthy head which could perhaps be just a little more masculine. Long neck. Fairly well laid shoulder. Good legs and feet. Is deep enough in brisket. Firmest of toplines with tail set on top. Correct rear, allowing him to move with a balanced stride. Super jacket. CC & BOB, well done on winning the group.
2 Mohrke's Yunus Vd Bismarckquelle. Liked his outline. Probably preferred his head slightly to first, but not as good in front. Lengthy neck. Chest to his elbow, could be more parallel coming towards. Well ribbed back to short loin. Topline is much better than his marking make it look. Good rear. RCC.
