MLD (5, 1)  

A mixture of shapes and sizes in this class.  

1. Rhum Night Legend. Presented the best overall picture of the five present in this class, and moved out most positively. This d has balance of angles fore and aft, a good firm topline, and great colour and markings. Liked his size and bone. Has well set ears, stands on good feet, and presented in first class order.  2 Liric Liquid Gold at Somerled. Very mature male who wasn’t too settled with the environment today. Presents a typical outline, but was a little proud of his tail when moving. Good size. Strides out with enthusiasm and drives well from his hocks.  

3.Yennadon Benriach.  

LD (4, 1)  

1.Melview Moving Time. Really appeals for type. Beautifully headed male with depth and balance of skull and muzzle. Dark expressive eyes. Strong neck leading to a well laid shoulder, certainly one of the best fronts here in the males today. Deep in brisket with ribs well back. Solid topline, well set on tail. Well angled quarters with super width of thigh. Stands well over his ground on great feet. Sound moving dog, as one would expect – could do with being moved at a faster space but space was against him today. Good size and with correct quality bone. Top drawer d, and therefore RBD.  

2.Benbuie Secret Agent. Another grand sort of good type. Shade longer cast than 1, and didn’t move as well as I’m sure he could as he appeared to be rather unsettled. Has balance in his construction and overall soundness as well as plenty of breed type. Clearly very well looked after at home, as his condition would suggest!  

3.Melkinmere Hallinhow.  


OD (3)

1.Hernwood Achilles at Ettrick. Smashing d of top quality. Grand head of balance, with good eyes and correctly set ears. He has super shoulders and length of upper arm, which appears to be something of a rarity. Super forechest, well spring ribs, he is strong in his topline with a well set on tail. Balanced in hind angles he has great width of thigh and development of second thigh. Hocks well let down. This d certainly excels on the move, with an effortless gait covering plenty of ground in minimal strides; reaches correctly with his well made front and has the correct strong driving action from the rear. Superb presentation. Very well handled to make the best use of the ring space available, he certainly couldn’t be denied BD and RBIS today.  

2.Sh Ch Liric Fusilier with Shillay. Rather different in his outline to 1 as he is longer and lower on the leg, but a grand sort with many breed attributes. Nicely headed, this d has superb forechest and ribbing and holds his topline firmly both standing and on the move. This d was presented in absolutely immaculate order – his coat was immaculate and flawless, and his condition spot on with rock hard muscletone. Handled well and overall a pleasure to judge.  

3.Hernwood Man O War from Dulmaur.  


VB (4,2)  

1.Greylacier Princess Sophia at Pollyspark. Sweet headed b, with lovely eyes and expression. Moderate in angulation, she is balanced and stands soundly on her good feet. Moved out around the ring well with composure and enthusiasm, holding her topline well at all times. Nicely handled to get the best from her too.  

2.Clohass Caoldair at Blairbelles. Another with a good head and expression, and nicely handled. Has good ribbing and a well set on tail. Not in the condition of 1 and nails could do with some attention to help her feet.  


PB (5,1)

This was a very challenging class to judge, many were difficult to assess and all were very raw with a lot of maturing on to do.  

1.Paradise Keeping Thyme. Stood up well and put on a good performance, this b was well behaved and turned out in good order. Would prefer more bone and substance. Very raw at the moment with a lot of bodying up and maturing to do.  

2.Gailiech Barmstondottir.  Taller on the leg and heavier set than the winner, and a bit of a challenge to go over. Not the balance of construction of 1, but in good coat and has good colour.  

3 Balnakeil Creag Na Caillich

JB (3)  

1.Colquhally Ticked Pink. Best mover in this class.  Sweet headed b with a kindly expression from her dark eyes. Nicely constructed at both ends, she is maturing on very well. Well angled fore and aft, her balance in construction is used to advantage on the move where she powered around the ring. Could do with being moved at a faster pace at times to really get the best from her. One to watch.  2.Lainnireach Original Tonic. Nice enough head on this b, and a dark eye. Stands on good feet and has correct colour and markings. Presented in good order she moved out well enough however tended to drop into her forehand and look bum high.    3.Woodland Hoppers Evening Star Over Barrabrae (Imp).
