Judges Critique

I would like to thank the Northern Cavalier Club for inviting me to judge their open show.
I greatly appreciated having so many well presented cavaliers to go over. Temperaments were very good but winter noses, poor toplines & gay tails were surprisingly common.

VD ( 9,5 absent )
1. Grant’s Granasil Black Jack. Nine year old B/T. Handsome head with big dark eyes and long ears. Slight greying on muzzle but wearing his age well and showing very happily. Good length of neck, flat coat & good clear tan. Very level topline & moved out well.
2. Waters’ Maibee Lorphil Lagonda
3. Martin’s Bevelmount Simply Red for Maltricia

MPD ( 9,2 )
1. Gillhespy’s Lorphil Lost Love. A six month baby at his first show. Small blen, heavily marked, rich colour, dark eyes & good pigment. Expertly handled to maintain his confidence & enable him to show off his good neck & shoulders. Well turned stifles meant he moved out well. He was still showing happily at the end of the day. BPIS
2. Crozier’s Korraines Disco Dancer
3. Richardson’s Kringleholme Ovation

PD ( 7,3 )
1 Gillhespy’s Lorphil Lyphard. Nine month blen with a lovely head. Dark eyes, black nose. Compact body with a richly coloured, heavily marked, jacket. Good length of neck. Very neat little dog that used his ears well and showed with style. I liked him a lot but felt he faded a little in the puppy dog challenge.
2. Sheard’s Almondene Goodwill
3. Crane’s Cranvarl Royal Star Struck

JD ( 4, 1)
1. Waddington’s Spindlepoint John Peel. Fourteen month blen. A slightly larger dog that moved out well. Good turn of stifle, dark eyes , well marked jacket, level topline and straight front. Happy temperament, showed well.

PGD ( Blenheim or Tricolour) ( 9,2)
1. Crozier’s Korraine’s Jerome. A quality two year old tri. This was a dog that I came to like the more I saw of him. He is not the most extrovert of cavaliers but he showed well enough for me to appreciate his classic, well carried head, lovely eyes, good reach of neck, rich tan markings, straight front & good movement. He carried plenty of fairly heavily marked coat and presented an attractive & finished picture as he went round the ring. BD, BIS

2. Lunam’s Flossybrook Total Eclipse

VB ( 3,2)
1. Hamill’s Craebeck Satin Rose JW. Ten and a half year old B/T with very appealing expression. Her owner is to be congratulated for keeping her in such very good condition.
