Dogs.   Mr A Wight
Some top quality Cavaliers on view & I was delighted with my final line up for the CC. My co-judge & I had no recourse to seek the services of the referee & we agreed on both decisions for BOB & BP

Best Puppy Costello's Beauella Radzinski
Veteran (2 Entries 0 Absent)  
1 Royce’s Turretbank Tartan Teddy at Rucazan
B/T. I felt 1 had the better finish in head with that shade softer muzzle finish which gave me nearer the picture I seek He was also in that little better body.
2 Morrison’s Bowerswell Knowing Me
B/T. A real live wire super temperament, happy & eager to pleas. & is such a lovely size. Well boned & of good proportions, & certainly enjoyed his outing.
Minor Puppy (16, 2)  
1 Armitt’s Brasingamen Fire Opal
Most attractive, well coloured Blen of much promise, lovely size for his age, prettiest of heads, beautiful eyes with that gentle gaze. Has a neck, is nicely angulated both ends & in stance is shapely & eye pleasing. Lovely coat condition & so balanced in profile action.
2 Claydon’s Brymarden Montana
Blen, that bit more advanced in overall finish with a little more forechest & furnishings, skull fairly flat, again well shaped, round dark eyes & well set ears. Good ribcage, level backline & nice bend of stifle. Moved quite soundly & with an easy step. Not quite such a well broken colour as Opal. But had to be good to beat an utterly charming ruby baby of just 6 months in Firth's Firnick Frost.

Puppy (19, 6)  
1 Costello’s Beauella Radzinski
Blen & what a prospect, I just loved him. The correct size & substance, beautifully constructed with all the bits fitting to make a picture of balance & gracefulness. His head is a delight, almost flat in skull, not overdone in stop, large round & well spaced eyes with the whole framed by such good ears. His neck carriage is so good, backline dead level, croup smooth & tail set correct. In sparkling bloom he moves with the lightest of actions & is balanced. Seriously considered him for the top awards, but he just lacks the outgoing fearlessness of those against him. Not nervous, just needs time. Delighted to see him win PG1 under Mrs Lanning. BP
2 Wiggins’ Whyteplace Nathan
Fraction smaller moulder but still masculine in outlook. Nice head pattern with good eyes & ears, enough neck which he holds well, very good fore assembly & this he uses so well on the move. Like 1, has very good hind angulation, spotless in coat & with time to furnish up & fill out, could do well.
3 Baillie’s Fyrnrose Lachie
Res Kerr’s Kinvaar Obsession
VHC Schilizzi’s Chacombe Armani
Junior (12, 1)  
1 Korn’s Sandusk Monterey
Blen of lovely size for his sex, comes into his own on the go around where his rear drive & overall balance can't help but attract. Pleasing head with beautiful eye colour & expression, excellent neck which is slightly arched & leads to a firm front & decent spring of rib, in lovely body & sparkling coat, he shows so well.
2 Hill & Webber’s Montcolly Brian
Ruby with a definite air of quality about him, delightful in head, eye & ears with an especially appealing expression, nice for size a proportions with a good croup finish & bend of stifle adding to his appeal. Side on he is so smooth in action but I felt 1 was that fraction more positive in hock as he went away.

Res Renaud’s Ellenaud Harry Potter
VHC Ireland’s Bankshill It's Now Or Never
Novice (9, 0)  
1 Baillie’s Fyrnrose Lachie
This really is a very nice Cavalier, but what a swine he is on the move. Sheer enthusiasm means he pulls too often which makes his action difficult to truly assess. He certainly has energy! Handling shows him to be most typy, lovely face with especially pleasing eyes & muzzle. Standing is balanced & clean cut in outline & his body condition was faultless. Ringcraft beckons!
2 Bayliss’ Castlewytch Rob Roy
Blen who is so well broken in colour, nice skull, long well feathered ears & a dark eye gave him appeal, good size & ribcage & in excellent coat. Just needs to settle in front where he comes a little wide at present.
3 Butler’s Tamyse Ferndale
Res Andrews & Markie’s Downsbank Magician
VHC Higgins’ Granasil My Name's Bond at Leybourne
Under Grad (8, 0)  
1 Barton’s Chantismere Chippendale at Loranka
Fair head, eyes a shade over large but dark in colour. Very well bodied with a good ribcage, lovely layback in shoulder, backline firm & is so well muscled, lovely tail carriage.
2 Gilbert’s Maratim Could It Be Magic
Pleasing head but a little too rounded in skull for me. Very good eyes & muzzle, well set ears & uses his neck well in stance. Nice size, in good condition & pleased in side action.
3 Johnston’s Clockpelters The Pretender
Res Jones’ Roseings Robert Martin
VHC Bloice’s Scotlass The Laird JW
Graduate (12, 5)  
1 Rennard’s Deranmar Michael JW
Beautifully marked & richly coloured Blen who has instant appeal for his outline, good skull which is fairly flat, not overdone in stop, well shaped eyes & nice expression. At present he is a bit wayward in front action, but side on he is easy striding & light footed.
2 Forrester’s Honeybet Designed For Salbrie
Tri who is not the most enthusiastic of show dogs & does just about enough to get away with it! Liked the shape & balance of his head with a really good muzzle finish. Has a fair neck, well laid shoulder, moderate in forechest & level backline. He is sound enough, just needs to put more into it.
3 Higgins’ Chamanic Sentinel at Chesalatina
Res Lunam’s Flossybrook Total Eclipse
VHC Armitt’s Brasingamen Black As Jet
Post Grad (20, 3)  
1 Biggs’ Kellorian Poetry In Motion
I don't think I met a better coat conditioned dog all day. This Tri positively sparkled & has super ear leathers & furnishings which frame a good face & lovely eyes. Could perhaps benefit from a tad more neck, but is nicely ribbed, lovely shoulder & upper arm, lovely weighted bone & good feet. Smooth in outline he moved true both ways & held his shape in profile.
2 Wiggins’ Whyteplace After Midnight Sh.CM
Blen of good size & proportions, nice head, eyes & ears with a good fill up. Well ribbed, backline level & side on shows an even stride with lovely driving hock use.

Limit (27, 4) What a class & it produced the heartbreaker of the entry in 1
1 Smith & Aldous’ Aranel Ballistic
In stance is the classic Cavalier male shape & has a head & expression which is simply so stunning that even in this large class, he stood away. Immaculate in body & coat condition, his colour is so rich & well broken which adds to his appeal. Regrettably I just could not get him to come towards me anything like I would want, but his sheer & obvious class demanded he win the class. I came back to him in the challenge & moved him again, hoping he would get it right, but he didn't. I am sure he will have better days & then the CC will be his.
2 Forrester’s Salbrie Delaqua
Another top class blen who, had I judged purely on movement, would have won the class as he is so sound & free moving. Delightful dog of correct size & substance, so balanced in body & in excellent bloom. While he has an extremely good head the winner just has that certain something where all the bits create a whole, which means that his sheer quality in head & expression are hard to deny. But he beat another very smart dog in 3

VHC Owen’s Narayden Kind of Magic
Open (21, 5)  
1 Lewis’ Ch Daraste Reflection of Love
I recently awarded him the group at Three Counties & was not disappointed on going over him again. Possibly the best head on view & an expression which is almost irresistible. For perfection I would like him a size smaller, but is perfectly within the Standard & should not be penalised for that. Immaculately coated & spotless in condition. He is shapely, well angulated both ends & when he has a mind to do it, he can move really well without showing the world how happy he is! Kept it all together long enough to win the top award, got shortlisted in the group & then played his handler up. Nonetheless, a lovely example of the breed. CC & BOB
2 Levy & Sedgwick’s Ch Pascavale Ryan
Another top class dog, more the size I prefer, lovely body construction & shapely in outline, really nice head, nowhere overdone but the whole gives a soft, gentle expression ably assisted by those well feathered ears framing the picture. He stands right, moves right, has good tail carriage & all in all the package is one worthy of his title, which I see he has.

Bitches   Mrs H Cumming
It was gratifying to see so many bitches well within the Standard size with correctly shaped heads - the domes, steep stops & houndy lips which used to appear too frequently were thankfully not in evidence. Movement however, was on the whole disappointing. Some of the lower classes were very difficult to judge as exhibits which looked great standing moved most erratically. In many cases I could not find any constructional reason for the weak hind action or lumpy toplines I say & I feel sure that regular road work combined with free running would go a long way towards remedying these faults. In addition, perhaps tired towards the end of the season, some exhibits I liked very much did not display the happy, fearless demeanour that is as much part of the Cavalier Standard as is physical appearance & had to stand down the line as a result.

Best Puppy Claydon’s Brymarden Moon River
Veteran (4 Entries 0 Absent)  
1 Reed’s Chantiz Spring Queen
Blen, not in her best petticoats. Pretty 7 year old impressed with typical head, large soft dark eyes, pleasing outline, good construction, well angled stifle allowed her to move more freely & smoothly than many of the youngsters.
2 Underwood’s Vanmarlen Cherry Blossom
8 years Tri, pretty head, pleasing overall shape, beautiful soft silky straight coat, not quite the fluent movement of 1.
3 Miller’s Nottus Naughty By Nature
Res Bloice’s Bowfort High Stakes Of Scotlass
Minor Puppy (28, 7)  
1 Claydon’s Brymarden Moon River
Promising 8 months, well developed, heavily marked Blen, good deep chestnut markings, lovely size, correct head, flat skull, shallow stop, well tapered muzzle, soft dark eyes, nice outline, good balance of back & leg length, level topline, coat OK for age & time of year, showed well, a better & more cheerful mover than most of the class. BPB.
2 Gill’s Florindale Sapphire Skye
Sweet, almost 9 months B/T, good general conformation, size & type, pretty typical head - not so easy to find in this colour, shiny straight silky coat, decent movement, level topline, liked her a lot, has all the essential except a wagging tail.

VHC Barker’s Kaishmar Cara Mia Mine
Puppy (21, 5)  
1 Inglis’ Craigowl Bilberry
Heavily marked Tri, attractive head & expression, very sweet & feminine type, good bodily proportions, showed well, really took the eye standing, bit unsettled on the move. Look forward to seeing her when she matures.
2 Hill & Webber’s Montcolly Bassey
Typical & promising, somewhat unsettled. B/T of correct size, sweet head, one to watch when she gets it together.

Junior (14, 3)  
1 Biddle’s Hearthfriend Hi Jinks
Nice honest Blen with spot, pretty well proportioned head, dark eyes, balanced outline, good angulation, kept level topline on the move, nothing exaggerated, not quite the glamour of some but has the essentials.
2 Tarlton’s Wightisle Rag Doll For Tomnil
Smart 12 months Tri, pleasing size & type, attractive head & expression, lovely dark eyes, showed well, decent mover, left all her clothes behind.

1 Barwell’s Charlottetown Valentine
Well marked Blen, well made frame, cobby body, pleasing head, went round in style keeping topline.
2 Wiggins’ Trirayne Polly Tician at Whyteplace
Pretty smaller size & lightly marked. Delightful happy temperament, good dark eyes, well angulated allowing freedom of movement. Not quite as mature as 1.

1 Lymer’s Lymrey Hi Falutin
Totally feminine little Blen who stood out for quality so well presented, lovely neat size, compact shape, gorgeous head & expression, great melting dark eyes, nice reach of neck, good angulation, level topline, showed very well, super happy fearless temperament which won her the CC.
2 Hall’s Tasset Sweet Affair JW
Very pretty well proportioned Blen, good head, type & construction, moving & showing well, not in best coat.

1 Name Withheld Name Withheld
Smart typical Tri, most attractive head, high set ears, correct muzzle shape, good body, well angled & outline, showed well but a little erratic on the move.
2 Crook’s Novalba Black Cherry
Nice honest bitch, pleasant head, lovely soft expression, good body, moved OK, rather out of coat.

Limit (21, 4)  
1 Turnbull’s Peakdowns Caprice JW
Glamorous, beautifully presented Blen, lovely size & shape, sweet & feminine, lovely head proportions, big dark eyes, compact well constructed body, good topline, sparkling coat, quite a nice mover, considered for CC but she had had enough.
2 Sidgwick’s Paulian Kittiwake
Tri, scored heavily in construction, movement & muscular condition, won her place despite dearth of coat & chewed ear feathering. Flat skull, high set ears, correct shallow stop, very good ratio of back to leg length giving most satisfying outline, lacking in glamour but a correctly made, fit bitch.

Res Allerton’s Karabel Karrigold

Very worthy Ch who fulfills nearly all the Standard requirements, correct size, cobby & compact yet full of quality, well ribbed up, beautiful head, long high set ears, soulful eyes, well constructed, good angulation, won this class with ease. In the challenge she looked tired & lacking in usual enthusiasm. RCC
2 Gamble & Name Withheld Lisgarth Petrouchka with **
