I enjoyed the entry on a beautiful sunny day outside in a big well mown ring. A variety of sizes & differing proportions. Hind action could be better in a lot. Too many carrying excess weight but I found plenty of quality Tollers. Many thanks to my stewards.

2ndWestwood EUSANIT CATCH ME IF YOU CAN
Top sized dog of lovely balance & a very good head & better eye than the winner. Rather upright in forehand & needs to fill out in chest. Beautiful colour. His front action let him down here.

18 months, lovely proportions & balance, full of breed type. Excellent ribcage & good bone, correct croup. Could be a little tighter in front but scored in rib & chest in a close decision.
2ndMorgan ERIKACHEN O'RUADH FOR DELTANDAMBA JW
Lovely balance & outline & wonderful colour. Better in rear action but not as good in front as he needs to finish in rib & chest. Lovely head & eye. Beautiful head. Should finish well, needs to tighten in feet.

Minor Puppy Bitch (4 entries, 1 absent)

1st DISQUALIFIED
7 months, scored in proportions, ribs & head, she tended to pace on the move but once she got going was sound & free, lovely colour.
2ndWest WAKADUZE WI MIMBE
8 months, very good mover, a little long for balance accentuated by being out of coat. Head needs time to finish.

1stCarnovale KYMIN ORANGE BLOSSOM OF RHEE
2 years, easy winner of this class, despite her white extending a little too far. She was the best mover & best proportions in the class, in wonderful condition & a quality head.
2ndCox ALLIANCE DE LA VIE RED THISTLE IN ICESTORM (IMP NLD)
2 years, taller bitch, not in her best coat, sound moving, just a little strong in the head for my taste.

1stAndrews FALLOWFEN FAITHFUL YOKO OF JEMMATEE
4 years, at the lower end of the size scale but the best for proportions, topline & movement in the class. I would prefer her a size larger. Tends to fly her ears.
2ndBlack SEAHAVEN PARISH BELL
3 years, I liked her a lot & had she been in firmer condition could have reversed this. She is very sound on the move but excess weight showed in her topline.
