SGRC Championship Show 22 August 2010
Critiques by Robyn Brown (Aust)

Thank you for the opportunity to officiate at your show. It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to go over your lovely Goldens. Often the top placings were decided on a minor point. I did note overall there were a lot of straighter fronts and that I would like to have seen more angulation in upper arm. I also found a variety of heads and sadly some were lacking the chiselling and beautiful eye that brings about a Golden’s kindly expression.

I want to congratulate your exhibitors on their friendliness, supporting and clapping no matter who won. I would have liked to have met more of you after the show.

Minor Puppy Dog

1. Hawkwood Fraxinus AI.  Gold youngster with pleasing head and eye expression. Balanced throughout which produced correct movement. Loved watching him stride around the ring. In the end he took it to the big fellows and I was confident to award him RCC. I wish him all the best for a promising future.

2. Arangold High Fidelity.  Longer cast boy with a different eye and expression to winner.

Arangolds Pop The Cork.  Found this boy to be straighter in front assembly.

Hawkwood Sorbus AI.  Needs some time to tighten.

Puppy Dog

1. Speyside Tour De Force. Needs time to mature in body and head.

Junior Dog

1Riverstone Hot Todde. This fellow was evenly balanced throughout, pleasing head.

Riverstone Dawn Of A Dream.  He has a stronger head and shorter body.

Shannongold A Moment In Time.  Nice type, finer framed than those above.

Intermediate Dog

1. Hunters Moon Of Kaikouras. Smaller happy gold boy, level mover with good feet.

Limit Dog - Nice class of mixed type.

1. The Times Of Inniscroft.    Balanced dog, level topline, especially on the move. Pleasant head into good reach of neck. Son of my BIS.

Arangolds Bon Chance.  Head of a different type, good body.

3. Craigdhu Action-Man.  Rangy type, would prefer better front assembly.

4. Hawkwood Thor AI.  Lovely head, again would prefer a better front.

Winterlea Lord O The Manor. Taller dog, didn’t have the front angles I was looking for.

Veteran Dog

1. NZ Ch Giltedge Stormthetasman (Imp Aust). This blonde dog took my eye as he entered the ring. Lovely type, nothing extreme, a well made dog, correct outline and level topline. Pleasing head and dark eye. Moved like a dream with reach and drive. Very nicely presented and handled. A pleasure to award him the CC and later BIS.

2. Ch Trinnetee The Entertainer CDX QC. Smaller made balanced dog who moved well. Similar to the winner in type and pushed hard for top honours.

3. NZ CH Aurelan Glyn Averill Imp Aust. A taller, heavier but balanced boy.

Open Dog

1. Ch Inniscroft Diamonds ‘R’ Trumps. Good size blonde boy, pleasing head and kindly expression. Held himself well and moved soundly. Balanced front & back.

2. Ch Tammara The Band Played On. Smaller dog than winner. Head not as chiselled and would have preferred a better eye shape.

Puppy Bitch

1. Goldriver Summer Holiday. Pretty young lady, longer cast through the body which should balance with growth.

Veteran Bitch

1. Ch Arangold Christmas Belle. Another blonde girl with pleasing head and kindly expression. Balanced throughout with good front & back assemblies. Level topline. Moved soundly, and handled well. RCC

2. Winterlea Lady Luck. Didn’t extend on the move due to her straighter front, also showing me a gay tail today. Still a nice type.

Hawkwood Freya AI. Another girl of correct type, a pretty girl whose topline was not the best today.
