Judge: Mr T Burgess
I would like to thank all the exhibitors for their lovely entry & the way they excepted my decisions in a sportsmanlike manner, & due to the Tour De France being the week before the ground was a little undulating & the weather conditions did effect some of the exhibits & possibly on another day & on a flat surface things may have been completely different & places may have changed.
MPD (10) 1 Mountcastle’s Holmchin Gorgeous Georg, lovely for shape & size, liked him very much, nice head proportions & very expressive, lovely & compact, best mover in the class, nice bone & lovely front. BPD; 2 Pearce & Hann’s Holmchin Secret Affair with Rakuchin, could not believe they were litter brothers, but both displayed such good movement, a little larger then my winner but with a lot of qualities, nice bone, well angulated rear, good topline, nice head & expression, carrying a lovely body, good tailset & carriage; 3 Allcock’s Sleepyhollow Le Figaro.
