Alfreton & District C S
1st Heppell’s Deevonville Santa Lucia. 6mth B. Lovely
shape, super head, correct eye & bite, good ear set, Lovely neck. V.Good
angles front and rear. So settled for one so young. The complete
2nd Hart’s Rappatty Romance. Another baby, with lovely
shape and super head. Well put together, just preferred the front
movement of my winner.
3rd Greenan’s Anlory The Living Daylights over Juleset
1st Baker & Breheny’s Mantafield Red Devil for Saffronlyn.
16mth D. Very elegant. Long lean head with correct bite, nice eyes and
ears. Long neck, and racy throughout. Good angles, moved true.
2nd Barker-Bell’s Balintyne Luck of the Draw. 17mth D,
different to 1. Lovely shape with good head & eye. Good angles. He was
somewhat preoccupied today, moved well.
3rd Barker-Bell’s Balintyne Wish Me Luck
1st Barker-Bell’s Balintyne Luck of the Draw
2nd Harts Rappatty Red Velvet. Lovely 21mth B who took my eye
both standing and moving. Unfortunately she didn’t want me to go over
her today so lost out. I hope that this is a temporary phase as she
could have a number of wins ahead of her.
What a super class! Difficult to choose my first 5 and even harder to
put them in order.
1st Gardner’s Riqitta Authentic. Only 21mths and I
would think many more successes ahead of him. Super for type & shape,
lovely head with correct eyes & good ears. Nice amount of bone, good
angles front and rear, deep chest. Lovely effortless free mover. A joy
to watch and a pleasure to award him BOB.
2nd Smith & Parker’s Brabrook Connemara 3Yr B. Another
super young lady, very close between 1 &2 Similar comments to 1 above
but a feminine version. Super head with lovely dark eye, beautiful
mover. Just in the final circuit I found myself drawn more to Dog
above. A well deserved RBOB
3rd Lewis’ Glenlaine The Bridegroom among Valasarch
1st Selman’s Cymbeline Impeccable.
2nd Murphy’s Caispern Humphrey O’Gara ShCM.
Two 6yr old boys, both of good shape with nice heads and good eyes. Both
well made and both moved well. 1 was just a bit more free on the move.
