Judge’s Critique BMTC Championship Show – 7 October 2017

Judge: Andrew Brace

As the scheduled Judge, Andrew Brace was not available, I (Max King) was asked to bring my appointment forward a year, which I agreed to do, wishing Andrew a speedy recovery and back to fitness as quickly as possible. I understood that in judging at this Show I was the first non breed specialist to judge, for which I felt deeply honoured, I was impressed by the sporting behaviour of all the Exhibitors and how my decisions were taken.
JD (2) 1. Harrison’s Magiebank Tern for Texanger. Nice size, shape and outline, good head, correct bite, well set ears giving keen expression, body coming on well, a little erratic at times on the move and tending to carry tail a little too high. 2. Baird’s Paucelin Ibis. Larger type throughout, a little heavy in ear, good jaw, nice neck, strong hindquarters, with well angulated and good bend of stifle. PGD (6) 1. Gray & Travis’ Brockenella Hector Von Clanmarshal. Top sized but all in proportion, good head, clean cut front, well bodied with good tail set, not always settling on the move. 2. Pletz & Kazantis’ Paucelein Duster. Finer type and I would prefer a stronger head, nice overall size and good outline, moved with good reach. 3. Ginter’s Lepommeau Monsieur Alphonse. LD (7.1) 1. Straughan & Cripps’ Talanors in for a Treat. Well made throughout and appearance much improved on the floor when free standing compared to picture on the table, liked head and expression, well bodied with clean shoulders and strong hindquarters. 2. Hebb’s Paucelin Falster. Appearance detracted by tending to overstretch, a little loose in front movement. 3. Stafford’s Westwythch Bolt for Gold. OD (4.1) 1. Carter’s Ch Digelsa Declaration. One I have to declare I have admired and rewarded previously in Group Competition and today had no reason to change my opinion. Outgoing, friendly and demanding attention, liked overall balance, well made head, lovely neck and shoulders, straight clean front, well made body, in super condition, moved soundly. Dog CC and BOB. 2. Walshaw’s Ch Talanors Diamonds N’ Dreams avec Janmark. A worthy champion and unlucky to meet 1 today, one I liked a lot with plenty of positive breed virtues, natural showman, liked size and shape, moved out well. Res Dog CC and RBIS. 3. Hemsell’s Tetani Wizard of Dreams. MPB (4.1) 1. Olbinson & Kelly’s Rattustrap Citra at Carapast. Lovely youngster and not fazed by occasion, head developing well, neat ears, nicely balanced body, moved with purpose. 2. Walshaw’s Janmark Back T’Black.

Larger type throughout, but in proportion and neat outline, strong head but let down by ear carriage, good body. NB (3) 1. Janmark Back T’Black. 2. O’Boyle’s Ruffagga Little Primrose. Good basic type but let down by not always cooperating with handler and unsettled on the move. 3. Gray & Travis’ Ruffagga Ghealaich Bhaigh Von Clanmarshal. GB (3) 1. Harrison’s Larkswing Belle Star.

Hemsell’s Tetani Lux Mundi. Nice size but outline let down by tending to overstretch when standing. 3. Keates’ Rattustrap Roaring Meg at Haamblet. PGB (2) 1. Knight’s Talanors Diamond Treat.

BCC. 2. Tetani Lux Mundi. LB (8.1) Walker’s Talanor’s Treat Me Good at Sizlin. A very nice picture on the table and on the floor, but in the challenge let down her chances by being too cramped up, liked feminine appearance, good head and expression, dark small eye, nicely made body and help shape on the move.
