1ST: REVILL & TAYLOR’S Julita Rhubette. Feminine bitch, pleasing expression, good neck and well laid back shoulders. Very balanced on the move which won her the class. (BPIB)
2nd: TAYLER’S Julita Rhyne. Litter brother to 1. Quite a strong head and appeared up to size. Good feet, correct top line. Rather erratic on the move which affected his hind movement somewhat.

1st: FERGUSON’S Taihang Scherezade at Teaselwood. Out of a finer and slightly longer mould, good feet. Moved OK and kept correct topline round the ring, however would have preferred a little bit more drive.
