- Carole Carter, UK (kennel Jassinger)
What a lovely young chap. Balanced, mid gold with good head, neck and shoulders.
In lovely coat. Happy showman who moved with style and drive.

- Margaret Woods, UK (kennel Amirene)
He's everything I look for in a show Golden, breed type, balance and that extra “Joie De Vivre” that
makes him a show dog! I've long admired this boy from the ringside and today he couldn't have
looked better. I strongly considered him for the ticket today but maturity and the finish of my
Open dog just pipped him. His time will come!
Such balance for a young dog in stunning coat and condition with his mid gold coat gleaming and
turned out like a new pin. Stands four square very attentive to his young handler who's handling is
an example to us all. Soft expressive masculine head showing no coarseness with dark pigmentation,
good dentition and smiling eyes. Well off for bone on straight limbs standing on neat feet
placed well under his body. Super front assembly and plenty of heart room. Nice length of neck
flowing onto a table top topline and correct tailset. Well muscled and constructed rear end
with good width to his second thigh and neat rear pasterns. He moved out with great enthusiasm
with his ever wagging tail and showing such will to please his handler. A joy to watch.
I had no hesitation in awarding him the reserve CC.

- Mary Neil, UK (kennel Moloko)
What can I say, this boy caught my eye the moment he entered the ring. A beautiful boy of good size.
Very well balanced. Super front & back angulation with good bone & lovely catlike feet. Nice straight hocks.
A lovely deep ribcage. A happy dog enjoying his day out. He presented himself effortlessly.
Strode around the ring with ease & drive. Very attentive to his owner.
Proud to award him CC & also see him go G1
.
- Bruno Facq, Prantsusmaa (kennel du Bois de la Rayère)
Very pleasing symmetrical & powerful dog, nicely balanced body, good deep ribs & well sprung.
Held topline at all times. Displayed good reach & drive in profile. Super tailset & carriage.
Lovely presentation & good handling. Topped this pleasing group to much applause. Well done
.
- Gordon R Haran, UK
So impressed with this quality boy, he presents a perfectly balanced picture & what a showman.
His handler knows just how to get the most out of him, together they really are the perfect team.
He has a balanced head, with a soft but alert expression. His construction is hard to fault,
nothing overdone or exaggerated. Well muscled which shows in his powerful driving movement.
I was delighted to award him his 3rd CC, & he was BOB on the referee’s decision.

- Julie Seamons, UK (kennel Messano)
A quality, balanced, masculine example of the breed. Shown in superb coat. Super profile &
well laid shoulders. Head well chiselled with a kindly dark eye, fixed attentively on his handler.
Deep ribcage, strong loin & deep quarters with well muscled second thigh & excellent turn of stifle.
Very sound free moving action with ground coverage. Very ‘showy’ & responsive to handler.

- Wendy Andrews, UK (kennel Catcombe)
Excellent dog with good proportion, symmetry and balance. Beautiful head, kind expression,
well set neck. Excellent front, bone & feet. Excellent topline & tailset. Deep chest.
Short couple. Excellent colour and quality of coat. Movement is powerful with drive.
