10 months bitch, loved this youngster immediately she stepped in the ring. Slim, elegant and oozing quality. Hands on she did not let me down. Lovely head and expression, strong foreface and large teeth, well off for bone but not cloddy. Good length of neck and typical topline, good tailset and kept low on the move, excellent rear angulation, in great coat, good sheen & condition. Moved true and accurately, flowing effortlessly round the ring. I am sure this girl could do what she was bred for and would go to ground effortlessly. BP, BOB, G1, PG1
