BORDER JUDGE BATH 11
1 Dickinson and Ragatam's Newmarket At Badgerholme. This dog is a very good mover, in good coat for his age. Good head with good expression. Nice feet. Good bone. Nice carrotty tail. Moved with handler as one. I liked his attitude.

1 Wilson's Olderhill Afortunado. This dog moved and showed very well. Nice head and ears which gave him good expression.
2 Varnlagan's Laddie By Nookshot.
1 Jenkins' Badgerbeck Pablo. One that I feel could go all the way to the top with maturity. You could go a long way to find a better mover. Good head and shoulders. In the best of coats. Lovely flow from head to tail.
2 Stockley's Foxfactor Pied Piper JW SH. CH. Rather overshadowed by 1st. Presentation in good style. Lovely head with good shoulders. Nice bone. Thick pelt and tight feet. Handler got the best out of him.

3 Ramus' Onthill Super Trooper
1 Johnson & Williams' Ch Quarryway Dill. This was a very good well-balanced type of Border. Good topline and moved very well. Typical head.
