2019 POOLE CANNINE CLUB OPEN SHOW Critiques
Subject: Whippet critique
Thank you to the committee for inviting me to judge whippets for them and to my two ring stewards for keeping everything running smoothly.
1st Leathart, Ringmore Hecate. Cream bitch with a classic whippet outline, soft expression, lovely rose shaped ears, long neck leading to good shoulders, good depth of chest for her age. Flowing top line with good rear angles, moved well in all directions. BPIB-HPG1 and pleased to see BPIS.
2nd Woocroft, Cobyco cover queen. Brindle parti bitch, good shoulders and depth of chest, neat feet, lovely top and under lines, stood over plenty of ground. Beautiful profile movement but was moving a little wide behind today which will come with maturity.
1st Osborne, Florency above and beyond derohan. Brindle bitch, elegant head with good ears and dark eyes, lovely long neck leading to good shoulders,good depth of chest, nice neat feet with good spring to Pasterns, lovely flowing top line, moved well in all directions. BOB
2nd Reese,Ptreidium Bracken.Fawn bitch, very unfortunate to meet the class winner today. Lovely whippet shape from nose to tail,nothing over done, however she was feeling a little cheeky today making hard work for her handler.
1st Kirkland’s, Erinnis stargazer. Golden fawn dog. Handsome boy in lovely condition, long neck onto good shoulders, good spring to pasterns, flowing top and under lines, stood over plenty of ground, moved effortlessly around the ring.
2nd Davis, Jemalsheva Goldikova. Brindle bitch, feminine with sweet expression, lovely neck, shoulders and chest, her top line flowed onto her well angulated rear, moved well.
1st Baluch, Erinnis Mignonette, fawn bitch, litter sister to my graduate winner, feminine girl with flowing lines, presented in excellent condition, moved soundly with drive.
2nd Leathart,Ringmore Galatea. Fawn parti bitch, very similar to 1, flowing lines with nothing over done, moved out well around the ring.
1st Shepherd, Citycroft Sundae with Oxana. Well presented dog who knows his job,lovely dark pigment, long neck with good shoulders and neat feet. Good top line with just enough rise, moved rhythmically around the ring.RBOB- BOS
2nd Severn, Nattah Silver lining. Pale brindle boy, different type to 1, long neck and good shoulders,nice depth of chest with good tuck up, lovely top line and rear angulation, feeling the cold wind today but deserving his second place.
1st Severns Magia Blanco, black and white parti bitch, elegant looking girl with long neck and flowing lines, good depth of chest and nicely angulated rear, stood over plenty of ground, best profile mover in the class.
2nd Baluch, Whisterfield Je Ne Sais Ouoi. Fawn bitch, pretty girl who is a smaller type than 1, she has everything in the right places, lovely top and under lines, well presented. Unfortunate to come up against the winners movement today.
I thank the club very much for this appointment. As it will be my last it is very fitting it should be here, as I have many happy memories of days spent with them over the last 40 years. Thank you to my very helpful stewards. Most of all thank you to you, the exhibitors, for bringing your lovely and very special dogs, all who were beautifully presented. Just one comment, I still find movement and fronts an issue. Thank you for a lovely day.
POOLE CLUB OPEN SHOW 2019 IRISH SETTERS
P. (1) 1. Randle’s ALOLFRANA LADY MILLION AT RIONOR A neat compact 7 month bitch. A sweet head with nice dark eyes, well proportioned body for a puppy. She has well bent stifles and neat feet . Moved steadily. B.P P.G.4.
J. (7) 1 Pym, Bott & Milligan Bott’s THENDARA MARSHMALLO. D. This one took my eye straight away. Handsome head with expressive dark eyes. Neck fits cleanly into good shoulders. Well bodied strong in hindquarters with powerful look at me movement. All topped by a gleaming coat.
2 Rutherford’s MAJESTYKA INDIAN SUMMER. B. Close up to 1st. Very pretty bitch, lovely head and expression. Good over the neck and shoulders, good depth and spring of ribs. A nicely balanced bitch. Today just couldn’t match the dog’s driving movement.
3 Kennedy-Sloane’s TWOACRES DESTINY. B.
Y. (4) 1 THENDARA MARSHMALLO. D. Repeat Junior.
2. Catling’s TELERI INDIAN SUMMER (AI) JW B. Pretty headed bitch with a rather wistful expression. Her front is good with neck fitting cleanly into good shoulders. Well bodied. With neat feet and hocks. I wish she had moved with a little more enthusiasm.
3. Hatfield’s STATLANTA GET A WIGGLE ON TO MARZANNE. D.
G. (6.1) 1 Macdonald’s REDCLYST MAXIMUS. D. Handsome head with correct eye shape and colour giving him a masculine but gentle expression.
His front is good with well laid back shoulders and pronounced sternum. Strong well ribbed backed body, clean topline. His hind angulation balanced his front perfectly and strong well bent stifles gave him his strong positive movement. A well balanced dog presented in beautiful full coat and excellent condition. B.O.B.
2. Pike’s REDCLYST BORIS. D. Litter brother to 1st and has many of the same attributes. He is a smaller built dog and is very well balanced, like his brother he has a very appealing head. Clean lines all through and strong quarters which gave him good movement. Presented in good colour gleaming coat. At the moment he appears not quite as mature as his brother. What a good pair of dogs, I am sure they will change places many times.
3. Catling’s TELERI HERE COMES SUMMER (AI) B.
OD. (4.1) 1 Andrew’s MILLCROFT MOON RIOT. He has a masculine head with no coarseness. I would prefer a little more lay back of shoulder to help his strong neck fit into his topline more smoothly. He has good depth of body, well angulated hindquarters, short neat hocks and his profuse coat was in good condition and well presented.
2. Macdonald’s REDCLYST KEARNY. Seven and a half years old. He has a refined head with just a few grey hairs coming giving him an appealing distinguished look. His body is deep and well ribbed back with good layback of shoulders. Although he lacked feathering his coat was in good condition
3. Pike’s REDCLYST THE PIPER.
OB. (8.1) What a class !! So many quality bitches who deserved to win.
1 Hall’s GLENNARA CILLEIGNE DERVA (ICK) JW. Lovely feminine head with good colour and shaped eyes giving a pleasing expression. Well balanced front and rear quarters, well boned, good spring and depth to ribs. Good bend and sweep of stifle, straight short hocks, which gave her such
powerful movement. I wish she had a firmer topline, but forgave her this as it was her movement which won her this hot class. She flew round the ring with good front extension and strong drive from behind and made it all look so effortless. It was this picture that wouldn’t leave my head and won her the class. R.B.B. & B.O.S. Shown in lovely coat and condition.
2 Prangle’s HEATHCLARE QUE SERA SERA SH.CM. Very much the type I like with very feminine head with lovely eye shape and colour and such a gentle expression.
