Dogs Mrs C Li (Avalcier)
My sincere thanks to the Southern CKCS Club and its committee for the honour to judge their Championship Show. My stewards Eddie Bishop and Mirander Rayner, were super efficient, to whom I am most grateful. I was very pleased with my line-up and found some typical cavaliers in most classes. Since I judged last, I note that wholecolours are going from strength to strength but disappointed to find less tricolours represented. Temperaments were good, albeit only one exhibit who was a little apprehensive. My CC winner went on to win BIS on the referee’s decision. Thank you to all the exhibitors who so kindly entered under me for my humble opinion. Finally, I was delighted to be presented with two beautifully engraved wine glasses from the club, as a momento of a lovely day.

Best Puppy Dog Korn’s Beaudale Secret Dream at Sandusk
     
Minor Puppy (9 Entries, 2 Absent)  
1st Coole’s Jolainey Stanley
Headed a lovely class of promising puppies. At 6 months, maturing quickly in body. Correct head development for his age. Loved his shape and make, well angulated. Took a little while to settle on the move but strode out steadily.
2nd Koster’s Harana Dean Martin
At the top end of the class, hence a more mature and larger B/T. Unmistakably a boy, with rich tan and excellent coat condition. Enthusiastic, great crest to neck, well bodied and good width to rear. Steady on the move with a solid topline.
3rd Levy & Sedgwick’s Pascavale Tommy
Res Parker’s Jordanic Evanly Touch
VHC Coole’s Jolainey Frederick
Puppy (7, 1)  
1st Korn’s Beaudale Secret Dream at Sandusk
This ruby puppy’s development is just right for his age. Scored highly on type with lovely bone and well angulated all round. Most glorious of eyes, blackest of pigment and richly coloured silky coat. As a juvenile, can be forgiven for giving his handler a hard time. His topline still needs to firm up but moved well with reach and drive. He needs a little bit more time and I will watch his career with interest. BPD.
2nd Cullen & Parker’s Chlojade Shooting Star
A heavily marked tri, good size, narrower blaze not detracting from his pleasing head and soft expression. Nicely bodied with good reach of neck. A very free mover with great confidence.
3rd Kynaston’s Granasil Vontrap
Res Thomas’ Bowfort Bertie Wooster of Pepyswood
VHC Bloice’s Scotlass Summer Magic
Junior (11, 5)  
1st Smith & Aldous’ Aranel Cassius
First impression was his wealth of lovely straight coat, presented to perfection. But there was so much more to this boy. Huge eyes, black pigmented nose, with maturity his head will be more masculine. Lovely size, well bodied with elegant lines aided by lovely reach of neck. Breed type in abundance and stylish on the move. Shortlisted in the final five and destined for the top.
2nd Tarabad’s Khatibi Bark Obama
Unlucky to meet the winner. Correct head shape with good width to brow, decent tan on his face. Lovely textured shiny coat covering a well ribbed body. Full of enthusiasm, moved with aplomb and a quality exhibit.
3rd Ford’s Salegreen Periwinkle
Res Watts’ Jamesbonny Josey Wales
VHC Kynaston’s Granasil Vontrap
Yearling (5, 1)  
1st Homes’ Leogem Renaissance
An excellent example of the breed. This young blenheim is just up my street and has so much going for him. Soft expression with large eyes, well filled muzzle and a perfect size. Richly coloured, the right amount of straight silky coat to show off his outstanding outline and so well-proportioned with a lovely grace to his neck. He is so well made on elegant lines, moving true from all angles, particularly pleasing to see the width of his aft movement. Steady on the move, powering round the ring with superb head and tail carriage. Personality plus and his cavalier temperament shone through. I was delighted to award him his 2nd CC and am sure it won’t be long before he gains his crown. Very pleased to see him win BIS on referee’s decision. CC, BIS.
2nd Ford’s Salegreen Periwinkle
Blenheim of a nice type and size with clarity of markings. Good breadth to head, well pigmented, shorter ear leathers. Clothed in a quality coat with rich tan and decent bone for his size. Moved with reach but not the rear of the winner.
3rd Blackie & Knapp’s Cridensa Coltrane
Res Hill’s Georgewade Texas
Novice (7, 3)  
1st Blackburn’s Bekenveldt Stairway To Evan
A smart, neat and well marked blenheim. Loved his body shape and generous head with large round eyes and correct length to muzzle. Good neck, shoulders and front assembly, would prefer him a tad smaller. Needs a little more attention to his coat which is of good texture. Quite a character and moved well.
2nd Guvercin’s Verheyen Foxx at Glebeheath
Another quality boy, heavier marked than winner with rich straight coat groomed to perfection. Lovely expression but a less masculine head. Slightly longer than winner, free mover round the ring, holding a level topline. Preferred the type and shape of the winner.
3rd Bloomfield & Edwards’ Delhaze Skyfall with Oaklake
Res Bloice’s Scotlass Summer Magic
Special Graduate Blenheim (4, 0)  
1st Norris’ Cinderaic Are You Kidding Criscan
A blenheim who needs to body up. His virtues are his gentle expression, lovely breed type and size. He has the required angles, nice crest to neck, correct bone for his size and good width behind when moving away. Attention needed on his coat and he just needs a little more time to mature.
2nd Bell’s Christabella Picasso
A smart and statute blenheim. In lovely condition and richly coloured with a white collar. A well developed body, strong front end and narrower at the rear. Needs to carry his head higher on the move and covered ground well when settled. Preferred the size of the winner.
3rd Lock & Thomas’s Korolevsky Luka
Res Newell’s Corbieanne Charlotte's Boy
Special Graduate Tricolour (4, 2)  
1st Smith & Aldous’ Bluemoon Cavaliers Renaissance for Aranel
Presented in top condition and a lovely size. Cushioned foreface, muzzle well filled but would have liked him to use his ears. Shapely body with good width to chest, needs to strengthen rear. Moved well with an impeccable tail carriage.
2nd Connor’s Gadeslain Perfect Gent
Of a different type to winner, good head shape and full ears. Well marked on body with narrower blaze which did not distract. Rich tan and pleasing expression. Short coupled, decent angles with a coat not easy to manage. Not the preferred tail carriage of winner but enjoyed showing wholeheartedly.
Special Graduate Black/Tan (5, 1)  
1st Tarabad’s Khatibi Bark Obama
See 2nd in Junior
2nd Boardman’s Volney Blackberry
Had to give way to a younger exhibit but by no means of a lesser quality. Good width to brow, correct stop, required length to muzzle and rich tan. Longer cast than winner, a wealth of coat but not of the correct texture. Perfectly groomed, handled and moved steadily with a solid topline.
3rd Webster’s Featherfalls Secret Sunset
Res Earl’s Earlrae Little Wizard
Special Graduate Ruby (4, 1)  
1st Kynaston’s Granasil Golden Nugget
Mature and rather strong in head, good ear set, shorter in muzzle, good pigment with appealing round eyes. Nice type, size and bone, would prefer a little more neck. His greatest virtue is his steady movement, covering ground well and excellent tail carriage.
2nd Lewis’ Carleeto I’m A Believer
Much younger and less mature ruby who looked very raw in the class. Lovely luscious dark eyes and head development in line with his age. Nice size, moderate neck, sound in body, good width and richly coloured quality coat. Wilful and unsettled on the move but a very promising youngster.
3rd Blackie & Knapp’s Cridensa Coltrane
Veteran (4, 1)  
1st Mangham’s Maibee Perfect Touch of Charnavale JW
Oldest veteran in show but could still pass as a youngster. If anything, the grey on his face has contributed to retaining his soft expression on his well filled face. Ideal size, good lay of shoulders, well turned stifle. Moved steadily with great tail carriage. BVD, BVIS, Oldest VIS.
2nd Boyd’s Ch Wandris Comedian at Airlie JW
A worthy champion who I judged as a youngster. He has not lost his gusto for showing. Fuller in head, correct stop with lovely large eyes maintaining a dark eye rim. Well angulated and a strong boy. Commanding the ring, moved happily with reach and drive.
3rd Cracknell’s Sorata Bertie
Post Graduate (11, 3) A difficult and varied class.
1st Hawes’ Miletree Centauri for Kersmere
Statuesque boy, heavier marked blen with a lovely soft expression, great eyes and full ears. Well coated and built on longer lines but enough leg for a balanced outline. Steady mover with a balanced outline and angles in correct places.
2nd Cole’s Carolus Don Barzini
Well marked blen topped with a lozenge. More compact in shape than winner, good ribs and ideal size. Ears well placed, attractively filled head. Correct coat texture, could do with a little more fringing. Very attentive, moved and showed happily, preferred the hind movement and expression of winner.
3rd Guvercin’s Loranka's Just A Moment Glebeheath
Res Blackburn’s Bekendeldt Evan Only Knows
VHC Kynaston’s Granasil Golden Nugget
Limit (11, 5)  
1st Long’s Arroline Infinity JW
A glamourous boy with a wealth of coat, well feathered, nice size and pleasing to the eye. Lovely head shape, filled under round dark eyes and long full ears. Sound in body and good bone. Well-schooled, he really enjoyed showing, wagging happily on the stand and at one with his handler. Floated round the ring, graceful on the move and drove with short pasterns. One always to be in the cards and short listed in the final five.
2nd Lewis’ Leelyn Michael Buble for Carleeto JW ShCM
Slightly larger mould than winner, another quality exhibit. B/T with an attractive full head. Abundance of good quality coat over a sound body, decent spring of ribs, ample heart room and tad longer in loin than winner. Moved purposefully with good reach and drive.
3rd Knight’s Carolus Don Santino JW ShCM
Res Holbrook’s Vonneyisle Life Of Riley
VHC Tarabad’s Khatibi One In Vermillion JW
Special Open Bred By Exhibitor (5, 1)  
1st Koster’s Ch Harana Errol Brown JW
Quality ruby with the most perfect silky shiny richly coloured coat. Attractive headpiece with luscious bright eyes. Correct size, good length to neck with a lovely crest, more mature in front and stood smartly in profile. High spirited, moved well round with a super topline. Shortlisted in the final five.
2nd Hawes’ Kersmere Minstrel
Have always admired this sound boy, with muscle tone, good shoulders and well rounded rump. Lovely headpiece, masculine but not too strong. Happy disposition, always wagging and moved with purpose. Just wished he was a tad smaller.
3rd Bloice’s Scotlass Power Of Love JW ShCM
Res Bell’s Christabella Picasso
Open (6, 1)  
1st Cortes & Towse’s Am/AKC Ch Miletree Joshua
The most beautiful and correct head, epitomising the breed. Masculine without exaggeration and the gentlest of expressions. Saw him as a youngster with potential and he did not disappoint with maturity. One for the top, with a compact and neat body, lovely bone for size and good angles all round. Strong and parallel front movement, the consummate showman, powered round the ring with precision, perfect topline and tail carriage and expertly handled to win the RCC.
2nd Sedgbeer Ch Castlewytch Rave On with Russmic
Another quality exhibit and great example of the breed, displaying the most richly marked coat covering his well-made body. Correct lay of shoulders, strong rear. Luscious dark round eyes, flat skull with full ears. Moved fluidly round the ring.

Bitches Mr P J Hill (Montcolly)
Many thanks to the committee for inviting and looking after me, this was my second appointment in as many weeks so feel as though I have had a good overview of the breed at the present time. Having not been to a show for nearly 4 years most if not all the exhibits were new to me. When I last judged in 2012 a rather disgruntled unplaced exhibitor commented "this judge thinks it’s still the1970". This actually wasn’t the slight that it was intended as like it or not the breed standard hasn’t actually altered even though it is hard to recognise some of the so called modern looking Exhibits of today as some of the cavaliers I fell in love with over 30 years ago. Admittedly we do and should evolve but not to the detriment of our lovely breed. Apart from the heads some of which were so extreme, coats have also suffered greatly. In the quest for more coat what has happened is that you have given yourself over jacketed dogs with excessive amount of coarse hair that is neither moderate or of a silky texture. All that said I was pleased with my final line up and will watch the breed with interest to see what turn it may take next.

This quality B/T girl took my eye on entering the ring and did not disappoint on the table. So many things to like. A most appealing expression. She is well balanced covering the ring with ease.

This girl stood out in this class and in my final line up. Beautiful Blen with loveliest soft gentle typical head. i.e. Not too short in muzzle with the gentlest slope.
