2nd TOULSYORK NOTED NAT (MR N & MRS H TOULSON). Typey and compactly built with excellent topline and tailset. Good depth of chest. Soundly made and moved accordingly.

1st KATHERINE'S LAND VIP LOVER [ATC AS01785EST] (MR D E ABLARD). A good moving dog who had a bit of oomph! Decent head and expression, strong, neck of good length with and with good shoulders. Deep brisket. Excellent topline and tailset.
2nd TOULSYORK KING LINCOLN (MR J & MRS H COLLINS). Strong and masculine and had he shown with a bit more verve he could have pushed the winner hard. Very good ribbing, firm topline and well set tail. Harsh, dense quality jacket.
3rd NEDELLA DESERT FLAME AT BRAVADOS SHCM (MR R D & MRS D N JOHNSTON)
Open - Dog Entries: 4 Absentees: 2
Two top quality dogs.
1st CH SONORRA CRISTMAS CRACKER FROM RUSSTAM (MRS J & MRS L CALLON & CALLON-WINN). A lovely dog, very well put together and soundly made. Lengthy quality head and keen expression. Strong, nicely crested neck, well boned with good feet. Short, strong back and excellent topline, tail carriage and tailset. Moved accurately with some power from the rear. Needless to say, his harsh dense jacket was presented to best advantage. CC & BOB.
2nd NU/DKUCH/FI UCH/SEUCH/INT UCH RABBEN'S QUARTERBACK [ATC AU02005NOR] ( MR H SIGFRIDSTAD). Long lean head, very neat ears and keen alert expression. Beautifully balanced and compactly made with excellent tailset and carriage. Very good coat. Moved soundly and in profile he is most impressive. Reserve CC.
Puppy - Bitch Entries: 3 Absentees: 2
1st TOULSYORK ONLY OLGA (MR N & MRS H TOULSON). A lovely puppy with an excellent temperament, free moving with some drive from the rear. Good length of skull, keen eye and strong jaws. Good neck and shoulders, well boned with compact, well padded feet. Good rib and body for age.

1st JAYDAVINE VICTORIA (MR C TURNER). Immature but has an air of quality and is very typey. Good skull and eye, keen lively expression. Decent forehand with good bone. Decent rib, short loin, good topline and tailset. Sound on the move.
Post Graduate - Bitch Entries: 3 Absentees: 1
1st LAKEAIRE OOH LA LA (MR J & MS K PUGH & SHAW). Quite feminine with a pleasing head and expression. Keen eye, uses her neat ears well. Good neck and shoulders, could be a touch deeper in brisket, good topline and tailset. Sound on the move with some power from the rear.
2nd OLDIRON VOODOO AT BRAVADOS (IMP AUS) (MR R D & MRS D N JOHNSTON). A lovely temperament but she just refused to use her ears, good skull, small keen eye, well ribbed with good depth of brisket and firm topline. Not quite the push from the rear of the winner.

1st TOULSYORK NEFARIOUS (MR N & MRS H TOULSON). Attractive and pleasing head and expression, very good neck and shoulders, good bone. Strong well ribbed body with good depth of brisket. Nicely rounded buttock and strong, well angulated quarters. Very typical and sound on the move. Shows and presented to good advantage. A daughter of the BOB winner I was pleased to give her a first CC.
2nd JOKYL TRUE ROMANCE AT ELLWOODKINGS (MR B & MRS L PURCHON). Lovely head and ears; keen, smallish dark eyes. Sturdy well ribbed body with good topline and tailset. Less exuberant than the winner and couldn’t quite match her powerful movement.
