  A young man I last judged as a puppy, he was the only one then and here he is at 2 yrs, again the only one here. Support your classes before you lose them! That said, he is maturing into a very nice young man. A solid Spinone with a lovely head and expression. Well muscled neck to super shoulders. Good depth of chest and nice fore chest. Lovely rear of correct angles and well muscled. Correct topline both standing and moving. Lovely to watch him move, free, effortless, ground covering stride.

19/09/2014 Driffield Agricultural Show Jane Maxwell Yearling Dog 1st
  darker orange roan with masculine head, good for head planes, pronounced occipuet, tight eye rims framing pleasing eyes. Square, rustic and robust with definite rise and fall topline, which he held on the move. Strong neck, leathery skin and super, flat harsh coat. Balanced in angulation he strode out and moved at a pounding trot and even managed some tick tock tail. Impressed enough for RCC.
         
17/08/2014 Welsh Kennel Club Julia Iles-Hebbert Post Graduate Dog 1st
  Well constructed, happy youngster. Typical headpiece displaying divergent planes, lean cheeks, good depth to muzzle. Kind, expressive eyes, ears well set. Strongly muscled neck let into well laid shoulder. Good bone and legs. Well ribbed body , strong loin and quarters, he went well.
11/08/2014 Bournemouth Sally Griffin (Sanjika) Post Graduate Dog 1st
  White and orange boy who is maturing nicely, coming into his own, with a typical spinone outline which when moving he showed to his best, maintaining flowing lines and a ground covering trot, showing the capability to hunt all day. Good masculine head, with the correct divergence and skull shape. Large spongy nose, good ears, into nice shoulder placement and front angulation. Good depth of chest with heart room, strong loin and croup with a good tail set. Large bone, good coat and presented very well. Pushed hard for the res CC but preferred the overall outline of the junior dog.
09/08/2014 Bolton CS Eric Parr Post Graduate 1st
  top quality 2 years old male but did not settle on the day, which was a shame, of excellent breed type, strongly built front to back, very well boned of correct shape, balanced masculine head but soft expression, well muscled through neck & shoulders chest deep with good spring of rib, correct slope over back into broad well made hindquarters, hocks well let down, well coated throughout of correct texture, movement was difficult to access on the day thus making a very competent handler earn her rosette, I hope he settles in the future, a young dog with a great deal to offer.
25/07/2014 Leeds Championship Show Lucy Kirkham (Alfigio) Yearling Dog 1st
  20 month old W/O male, Very square and balanced young dog in harsh condition, balanced head with kind expression, beautiful long eyelashes. Strong neck leading into well laid shoulders, pronounced sternum, good depth to body and spring of rib, plenty of bone. Correct course coat and skin. Well muscled which showed in his powerful movement. Very Workman like, and could easily do a days work in the field.

09/03/2014 Crufts Zena Thorn-Andrews Special Junior Dog 1st
  Lovely youngster, good type, size, quality of bone & substance, had all dew claws too! Moved easily, topline promising but obviously he can still harden up further in movement
02/03/2014 Coventry & District Gundog Society Steve Bowcott (Dalvenza) Junior 1st
  A 17 month old W/O boy who for is age is very well developed. This boy stood square in profile. He has a good head and earset with short strong neck into well laid shoulders. Good forechest and well sprung ribs with minimal tuck up. Excellent coat. Feet of good size and well padded. Excellent topline which he kept on the move. His movement was good today but I felt he would have benefited from a larger ring where he could show us the true movement and drive this boy has. I can see this boy has good future ahead of him.
