1st Mullens Ch Foxypaws Ericcson 32FN M 01/06/08
Mature and Handsome Boy a shade on his toes today but perfectly easy to handle just very aware of his surroundings. Longer wedge with good top and large well set ears, Eyes of a good blue but as I have said before rather straight and give him a slightly un oriental look. Lovely condition and gorgeous ermine like coat that fits like a glove. Hard muscular long body with elegant limbs and long tail to balance. Dusky apricot points looking matte and well developed today and well matched. Super coat texture and of a clear cream Super condition.
2nd Ellis Meilland Mister Finley 24 M 02/03/09
Handsome Young man just adult and already very muscular, longer wedge with wide top and large well set ears, slight dip to profile with firm chin and level bite. Eyes of a mid blue that could do with more depth of colour for a seal and he did show an intermittent squint. Slightly patchy seal brown points that were a warm seal brown and a tight fitting coat that was quite shaded for his age. It was nonetheless a lovely texture. Long whip tail to balance, A handsome man maturing nicely.
3rd Linklaters Shadowsquad Diesel 24 M 23.01.09
Although older than the previous boy he was not as masculine or well developed for his age. He was in super condition and had a lovely temperament. Good overall type with a medium wedge shaped head showing a slight pinch and dip to profile with and slightly flat above the brow line with oriental eyes that ideally could have been deeper in colour, he did hold them slightly full out of the pen but these were better when back in. Large ears that were well placed that ideally could have had more flare.Well developed dark warm seal brown points with a warm beige coat of a lovely texture and again slightly shady for age and a smidge long. Sweet temperament and lovely condition

Mature and Stylish lady looking very composed and relaxed today super type with medium wedge with wide top and set with large flared ears with good width between, straight profile with firm chin and level bite. Long muscular substantial body with elegant limbs and whip tail to balance. Dark seal tortie points that ideally could do with more red evident but she is nonetheless attractive with dark blue eyes of good shape and setting. Shaded coat with contrast still evident and of a lovely texture. A super lady of quality and well deserving her Best Siamese Adult award.
2nd Green's Imp Gr Ch Mapu Allegra 24N 30.10.04
Another super stylish lady who always looks much better out of the pen. She has a lovely head and profile and is supremely elegant with a noble look but today the combination of style and substance won over her but she is nonetheless a stylish lass I really had to split hairs. Longer wedge with lovely profile with level bite and slightly shallow chin. Long elegant body with long neck she uses to her advantage when out of the pen. Lovely eyes for colour and expression and super shape. Textbook points colour with super sludgy taupe tone and no mistaking her colour super density to the colour and all very well matched with super off white coat almost unshaded that was a shade long and a bit dry. Long whip tail to balance with long elegant limbs.
X2 Evans Billstes Gypsy Moth 32T3 F 10/11/08
Youngster of super promise oh how I wish she had more self belief as she is lovely but is not yet aware of her charms and is very shy. Very pretty young lady with medium wedge and straight profile with firm chin and level bite if I was to be hypercritical she is a tiny bit fine in the muzzle. Large flared ears showing good flare and set well following the lines of her head. Eyes of super colour and expression that she holds wide they are much better when she relaxes. Super chocolate tortie tabby points well matched chocolate showing signs of breaking and varying shades of red on all points and showing leg bars and broken tail rings with M and thumb prints. Gorgeous coat for texture and length and super presentation and condition just needing to gain some confidence.
3 Davies Johpas Ruby Tallulah 32A F 12.02.09
Another attractive youngster of super type and style with medium wedge and large well flared ears. Almost straight profile with firm chin and level bite. Oriental eyes that I would have preferred a deeper colour. Paler red points well matched that ideally could show more intensity but she is young and probably seal based. Coat of off white but a smidge long today and in a class of this quality when I was having to split hair it counted. Presented beautifully and with a lovely temperament.

AV Novice Kitten
1st Hudsons Chapelrose Pharoah 37D M 25/06/09
Super stylish boy of lovely type and style looking a shade effeminate at this stage but he has plenty of time on his side. Medium wedge with almost straight profile and firm chin with level bite. Very long slender body with long limbs and spoon paws. Whip tail to balance. Bright red coat of super richness but quite heavily patterned with visible spots on torso and clear spine line evident with tail rings and M, the base colour shows a little too much contrast to the red main colour and this would concern me at this stage and although the standard does not penalise too heavily in a kitten of this age and it will be interesting to see how he develops. Lovely condition and coat texture nonetheless super eyes for shape and a good clear green. Attractive boy.
