2 Bigland’s Ardencote Tutor with Heythrop, good head & expression with good mouth, nice neck & shoulders, just holding on to coat, moved out well;
3 Smith’s Digaden Top Hat & Tails, would prefer to see him carry his tail a little higher to bring more balance to the body.
1 Price’s Ch Rymshott at Andralok, quality dog whom I have previously awarded top honours to, balanced without exaggeration or coarseness presenting strength & substance in compact frame, well made head, good ears, correct bite, good neck & shoulders, spannable body, moved well. RCC;

1 Rutter’s B Badge of Honour; 2 Farrow’s Glencymreig Two In One, would prefer a little more strength in muzzle to bet better head balance, well bodied, a little loose in front movement.

1 Matthews’ Digaden Coloratura at Springcurl, alone but worthy winner, would like more attention to presentation to make the best advantage of attributes.
1 Chalkley’s Ardencote Tullah, feminine appearance & no doubt will only benefit from further development & maturity to finish the picture, good head & ears, clean outline, well made body. Did not put everything in on puppy challenge;
2 Bowden’s Chellowside Skylark, up to size for age, nice head shape, managed to span ok, rear movement lacked a bit of drive;

CC & BOB;
