Best Dog: Hughes’ Loranka’s Enchanting JW
Reserve Best Dog: Fry & Jackson’s Amantra Stagehand
Best Puppy Dog: Fry & Jackson’s Amantra Stagehand

Minor Puppy (12 entries, 7 absent)
1:  Inglis’ Craigowl Santana
Very nicely made young tri who had a lot to offer from nice sound construction & clean movement to a very pretty head with soft expression, has the correct shape & balance that I was looking for, very nicely marked & in excellent coat for so young, in immaculate condition.
2:  Hughes’ Loranka’s Just Like Heaven
Blen, similar in shape & size to 1. Lacking a bit in coat & finish compared to 1 & his movement was a bit harder to assess. Head quite handsome, nice front construction with lovely neck which enhanced his outline.
3:  Jones’ Timsar Master Spellmaker
Res:  Name Withheld
VHC:  Fry & Jackson’s Amantra Prince Of Thieves

Puppy (16, 6)
1:  Fry & Jackson’s Amantra Stagehand
Really loved this blen puppy, really was my cup of tea, nice & small but with enough bone & such an elegant outline, lovely arch of neck, well constructed & put that to good use on the ground moving fluidly around the ring, the nice structure was complimented by a gorgeous head with lovely dark eyes & very dark pigment, all of this was topped off with a richly marked silky coat, one who I really loved on the day. RBD, BPD.
2:  Inglis’ Craigowl Crusoe
This heavily marked tri was spot on for overall type, everything was moderate, just as it should be with very pretty head that was not extreme in any way, correct balance & size, in immaculate silky coat, very strong in movement.
3:  Knight’s Carolus Tommy Atkins
Res:  Vella’s Cinderlace Rodrigo
VHC:  Hughes’ Loranka’s Aramis

Junior (15, 4)
1:  Boardman’s Volney Bonanza
Nicely constructed b/t who ticked all the boxes on the Standard, much to like here, really liked his handsome head & nice soft expression, in full coat of correct texture with nice rich tan, very sound mover when he was able to stride out, lovely to see such a high quality whole colour.
2:  Fry & Jackson’s Amantra Vaudeville
Well broken blen who made quite the picture standing, really liked his size & shape, had really nice angles, very handsome masculine head, Unfortunately, was not very co-operative on the move so he did not make the most of those assets, still a very nice Cavalier.
3:  Jones & Rance’s Tomnil Cream Of The Stars at Droleus
Res:  Barnard’s Toshina Martino JW
VHC:  Mowatt’a Asmena The Minstrel

Maiden (5, 3)
1:  Hughes’ Loranka’s Aramis
Nicely made young blen of correct size & substance. Quite immature, up on leg & lacking coat, this could come around with maturity. Very handsome head, very sound mover.
2:  Lymer & Scheidt’s Lymrey Hi Performance
The total opposite of 1, very mature dog in tremendous coat, quite lovely in the head with gorgeous eyes. Simply would not settle on the table or on the move which made assessing him impossible. Lovely dog but could not fairly place him higher.

Novice (6, 2)
1:  Hughes’ Loranka’s Aramis
See Maiden
2:  Stokes’ Phrenchy Endeavour to Scouriemore
Larger more mature blen, very attractive masculine head. Could not match 1 in movement or tailset.
3:  Heath’s Chacombe Oliver
Res:  Partington’s Shandeen Song Of Soloman

Veteran (4, 2)
1:  Koster’s Harana Sinatra
Top quality ruby in excellent coat & condition, very handsome head & was presented beautifully, strong clean mover, liked much about him, only wished he had been a size smaller.
2:  Brewer & Moody’s Sultair The Sea Baron at Bowfort
Up to size, b/t in good coat, very spry for his 10 years. Preferred the head of 1.

Special Post Graduate Tricolour or Blenheim (16, 4)
1:  Vella & Li’s Avalcier Olivier of Cinderlace
Really liked his head, very masculine yet soft with the loveliest large dark eyes with dark rims, this was not his only virtue as he was well constructed & of a nice size, a contender for top honours.
2:  Stanley’s Stanhome Lord Of The Ring
Mature, nicely coated blen, this boy was very well put together & was quite strong in movement. A bit larger cast than 1 & did not have the lovely eyes, but a quality exhibit.
3:  Craig’s Milkeyn Sheer Star of Aldachell
Res:  Lister’s Cachevell Dance In My Shadow
VHC:  Renaud’s Ellenaud Harry Potter

Special Post Graduate Black and Tan or Ruby (9, 5)
1:  Hughes’ Loranka’s Firestarter
Very flashy, glamorous ruby, in flowing richly coloured coat, very nice size & shape, level topline, nice tailset. Front movement could have been better.
2:  Harding’s Rexeven Tawny Port
Richly coloured ruby of correct size, good bone, this handsome headed boy was a clean mover. Did not have the tailset of 1.
3:  Lowe’s Alawago Diamond Remy
Res:  O’Callaghan’s Amantra Starshine

Limit (15, 7)
1:  Towse’s Miletree Citation
Very nice young blen, lovely moderate head, very soft expression, coat well broken, richly coloured & adequate for age, quite strong mover, looked nice coming & going, lovely outline on the move with level topline & nice tailset, up to size but that did not outweigh his many virtues.
2:  Stanley’s Stanhome Lord Of The Ring
See Post Graduate
3:  Stokes’ Hold That Dream for Scourimore
Res:  Boyd & Carter’s Kinvaar Addict
VHC:  Gillhespy’s Lorphil Lyphard JW ShCM

Open (5, 1)
1:  Hughes’ Loranka’s Enchanting JW
Absolutely stunning tri in excellent condition, has what is for me a textbook Cavalier head nothing extreme totally soft & expressive from the stop, fill of muzzle to the lovely eyes, his size, shape & substance were also very much to the Standard with everything in balance & proportion including a nice level topline, so much to like about this boy. BIS.
2:  Korn’s Sandusk Monterey JW ShCM
Very pretty headed blen, nice eye & sweet expression, nice size & shape, quality exhibit.
3:  O’Callaghan’s Amantra Starshine
Res:  Allerton’s Kavacay Magic Dream at Deeriem

Best Bitch: Sansom’s Byermoor Queens Maid JW
Reserve Best Bitch: Towse’s Miletree Nela Fantercia
Best Puppy Bitch: Towse’s Miletree Nela Fantercia

Minor Puppy (10 entries, 2 absent)
1:  Ireland-Cooke’s Charnell Frolic
What a lovely outline this young blen had on the move, Just right with terrific angles & a graceful neck giving her that elegance that I like, smartly made throughout, nice bone, broken markings were very flattering, head had a very pretty shape & had the correct soft expression, really a lovely puppy.
2:  Ireland-Cooke’s Charnell Mimic
A hard choice between these littermates, this one was perhaps a bit prettier & had the nicer eyes of the two. There was nothing wrong with her conformation, Just could not match the elegance of her sister.
3:  Stevens & Moffat’s Milkeyn Minnie Pearl
Res:  Powell’s Cloudcroft Dixie Chick
VHC:  Koster’s Harana Ruby Turner

Puppy (17, 1)
1:  Towse’s Miletree Nela Fantercia
Really loved this girl, everything I was looking for, ultra feminine, nice & small but with plenty of substance & such a well balanced shape, had just the right amount of well marked, silky coat for age, really moved cleanly in all directions showing with great attitude, in side gait she really excelled with lovely arch of neck, level topline & correct tall carriage, all of this was topped off by a scrumptious head with the loveliest eyes & the softest expression, if I could have taken one home this would have been the one. RBB. BP.
2:  Levy & Sedgwick’s Pascavale Alice
Similar in many respects to 1, see they have the same sire, really pretty headed feminine girl, lovely large eyes of correct size & substance. A bit different in head type with a shorter muzzle & a bit more stop but quite nice. Thankfully gained confidence after a change of handlers & I was able to assess her many virtues.
3:  Hazeltine’s Juzandia Atomic Kitten
Res:  Hogan’s Ricksbury Royal Promise for Stavonga
VHC:  Hull’s Telvara Kreme D’Menthe

Junior (15, 5)
1:  Levy & Sedgwick’s Pascavale Clarissa
Exceptionally pretty blen, very soft expression, lovely eyes & pigment, in nice richly marked coat & shown to perfection, really liked her very well turned stifles that she put to good use on the move. A quality entry & a contender in the challenge.
2:  Hindle’s Ricksbury Venus to Ellisiana
Similar in size & make to 1, this girl was a bit shorter of muzzle but pretty nonetheless with nice large dark eyes, well constructed & clean on the move.
3:  Tweddell & Godwin’s Rivermoor Hannah
Res:  Rhodes’ Crystaldawn First Kiss with Calonlan
VHC:  Bayliss’ Castlewych Serendipity

Maiden (14, 6)
1:  Lewis’ Daraste Behany
Well broken blen, a bit longer cast than most of my winners, excelled in head type, lovely eyes & dark pigmentation, this combined with nice cushion under the eyes gave her a soft, sweet expression that we all strive for.
2:  Pagan’s Sorata Sophie Tucker
Very nicely made richly coloured ruby, very level topline which gave her a nice outline on the move, clean coming & going. Lost out on softness of expression.
3:  Bloice’s Scotlass Chloe
Res:  Korn’s Lorphil Lillie at Sandusk
VHC:  Rennard’s Carolus Madeleine at Derenmar

Novice (18, 5)
1:  Levy & Sedgwick’s Pascavale Clarissa
See Junior
2:  Conneally’s Coedgwylum Hot Flame
The most difficult class of the day as these were two exceptionally nice girls. Blen, fantastic head that met every aspect of the Standard, excelling in eye size & colour as well as pigment, very clean & elegant on the move. A bit longer in loin than 1.
3:  Rhodes’ Miletree Touch Of Love in Calonlan
Res:  Antonazzi’s Clentview J’Adore at Littlemeads
VHC:  Rennard’s Deranmar Philippa

Veteran (7, 4)
1:  Conneally’s Coedgwylum Cola
Would never have guessed that this lively tri was 10 years old, could have easily passed for half that with her high spirits & great show attitude, very well built & that showed when she was on the move, really liked her size & overall type. BV.
2:  Rennard’s Ch Deranmar Kelso
10 year old who was of a lovely type, very pretty soft expression. Could not match 1 in vigour, showmanship & condition.
3:  Turner’s Shalot Morgan La Fay

Special Post Graduate Tricolour or Blenheim (13, 6)
1:  Maclaine’s Lochbuie Geordie
Wow, what a glamorous girl, walked into the ring dripping in well groomed, excellently marked, silky coat, terrific size, small with plenty of bone though I did find her a bit longer of loin than my ultimate winners in the challenge, was certainly giving nothing away to anyone in the looks department with her exquisite feminine head. Think the terrible wind had her a bit distracted & she did not show herself to full advantage on the move. Having said that, I am sure she has many wins ahead of her.
2:  Coole’s Jolainey Miss Millie
Blen of a very different type, shorter in back with more leg which with her nice angulation gave her a very nice outline, pretty feminine head, very nice girl. Could not match the glamour of 1.
3:  Hughes’ Loranka’s Magic Moments
Res:  Norris’ Criscan Inquisitive
VHC:  Perry’s Rosemonde Shuai

Special Post Graduate Black & Tan or Ruby (11, 4)
1:  Boundy’s Rubyfield Fidget
Really nice b/t In excellent coat with very rich tan, very soft expression something that I don’t always see in a b/t, of correct size & build, moved well but was let down on the go around by her tail carriage. An easy class winner.
2:  Hughes’ Loranka’s Desert Star
Ruby, built along the same lines as 1 & similar in many regards for size, shape & head type. The flapping of the tent bothered her tremendously & she never really settled on the move.
3:  Bayliss’ Brasingamen Ice Mountain
Res:  Boardman’s Volney Daisey Belle
VHC:  Faber’s Fabvier Holly Berry

Limit (13, 5)
1:  Boundy’s Rubyfield Fiddlesticks
Littermate to previous class winner & were certainly cut for the same cloth, shared many of her sister’s virtues, excelled in head & type, liked her very much but did not hold her topline on the move.
2:  Fry & Jackson’s Amantra Chambermaid
Similar in size & type to 1, this 5 year old really had a lovely sweet expression, held her topline standing & moving.
3:  Powell’s Cloudcroft Cherokee
Res:  Hogan’s Stavonga Softas Silk
VHC:  Martins, Jones & Player’s Rhybank Billie Jo

Open (11, 5)
1:  Sansom’s Byermoor Queens Maid JW
This flashy showgirl caught my eye the minute she walked in the ring, spot on for size & body shape, had the more moderate head with large dark eye & soft expression that I prefer & was turned out to perfection & really showed her heart out, that exuberance almost caused her to throw the challenge with her tail carriage but in the end her attitude & type were exactly what I was looking for. RBIS.
2:  Hughes’ Loranka’s Lillie
Very different type blen who was longer cast, exuded quality nonetheless, like so many of the winners in the bitch classes. Truly lovely head, large dark eye, very sound on the move. Lacked coat & finish.
3:  Fry & Jackson’s Amantra Fortune’s Rock
Res:  Jones & Rance’s Wightisle Moonbeam between Droleus
VHC:  Hindle’s Ellisiana Shan Tung
