VD (0). JD 1 Garvie’s Rhialis Apollo, a year old wheaten, promising & very sound, just needs time which is on his side, classic headpiece, alert & freestanding, I’m sure we will see more of him, well done. PG 1 Campbell’s Trelowen Spinnaker, 2 years 9 months wheaten, good dark eye, wedge shaped head & mobile ears, coat of good texture, the noise bothered him a little but he moved out well, profile on the move good, sound in all directions, so well presented. LD 1 T Spinnaker, a lot more settled; 2 Bolton’s Odin Ved Rikarlo, top size male of excellent type & so well presented, top & underlines good, very sound. OD 1 Cale, Dobson & Evans’ Arnscroft Di To Be A Sailor, 22 months wheaten, good eye, wedge shaped head, good expression, mobile ears well set, good neck, firm topline, very good front & rear angles, sound on the move, just at the right pace, I’m sure we will see a lot of him. CC & BOB; 2 Shorer-Wheeler, Wheeler & Gillies’ Ch Arnscroft Di Na Mo Farrah of Koromandel, pushed hard for best, firing on all cylinders, good headpiece, lovely expression, right width & length correct, light on his feet with a smooth effortless gait, well deserved RCC.
