Well furnished with the richest of markings, a dog that has many virtues and I am sure he will hit the high spots soon

Another quality dog from this well known kennel, have admired him since he was a puppy and he doesn't disappoint, a joy to go over on the table and presented to perfection, exquisite head framed by well set ears, compact body with good spring of rib, moved steadily, think he was feeling the effects of a long journey as seemed a bit lethargic.
3 Hughes' Loranka's Jubilation
Open (10, 2)  
1 Inglis' CH Craigowl Billy Elliot
Absolutely stunning tri dog who fills the eye and does not disappoint at all from going over him on the table to movement and standing, he has clear cut head markings and has the most appealing and melting expression in a tricolour I have seen in a long time, which is so difficult to achieve, well arched neck with fantastic front and rear angulation, good spring of rib, he has something that is sadly lacking in many dogs today a topline and tailset that is level, although he is heavily marked this does not detract from his overall balanced outline, shown in sparkling condition and at one with his owner. Thank you for the opportunity to go over him and delighted to award him the CC and BIS.
2 Baker & Park's CH Keyingham Branwell
Lovely blen with rich dark tan markings, shown in excellent condition and profuse coat with excellent texture, classic head and masculine expression, well cushioned foreface, dense nose and eye pigment, moderate neck and good lay of shoulder and rear angulation, excellent muscle tone, ideal size and shape, moves with drive round the ring with the 'look at me attitude' keeping a balanced outline, a dog with an exuberant personality , a deserving champion and I found this a hair splitting decision, he was unfortunate to meet Billy Elliot on such top form and had to settle for the RCC today.
3 Thomson's Ailcres Sandman
Special Open Wholecolour (7, 1) 2 lovely ruby dogs headed this class
1 Hughes' Loranka's Starstealer
Ruby boy with profuse coat of the correct texture, soft expression that is still masculine, head framed by well set ears, hard to get in wholecolours, good substance and idea bone for size, level topline and tailset, moved steadily at all times.
