Judge's report: 
 
PD (2) 1st Hunt & Bastable's Thokozani Free Spirit. Smart baby with very good quarters which enabled him to move with drive. He has a very good shoulder placement but at the moment moves rather loosely in front. Needs to strengthen in head.
 
JD (2) 1st Whittington's Matabelle Monsonedi. Liked his head and expression. Strong boned youngster with good feet, slightly short in upper arm, good topline but appears a little long in the loin at the moment; 2nd Gren's Moshoeshoe of Lesotho. Darker coloured very sloping through the croup with spoils his topline.
 
ND (5) 1st Moshoeshoe of L; 2nd Dunlop's Kuwinda Tiger. Bright personality who moved with sparkle, inclined to carry his tail very high. PGD (3) 1st Bames'Diamondridge Desperado. Upstanding dog, well muscled with good bone and feet. Good shoulders and deep through his ribs. Well balanced dog who moved with strength.
 
LD (6) 1st Brownlee's Saragwe Hodari Jambaro. Moved with balance, he has a lovely shoulder with good bone and feet. Very strong through the ribs and loin; 2nd Coyne's Ozubi's Jonagold.

Best Dog. 2nd Mansfield's Nallim Ungaza. Another smart dog who moved well, very good through his front, drops away through the croup. Reserve Best Dog.
 
VD (4) 1st Matabelle Mozart. Lovely old dog 10.5 years. Smaller type but very well balanced.

PB (6) 1st Ellis's Zejak Zuruu. Quality baby who moved the soundest, she has good points all round and I am sure will go on. Best Puppy; 2nd Morrison's Zejak Zilzaa. Litter sister to above. Very similar just at the moment rather weak in pasterns.
 
JB (5) 1st Morris'Bruet Song at Kasenga. Very sound, well balanced youngster, wonderful feet and limbs, bone with quality; 2nd Warde's Bruet Ruby Tuesday. Litter sister to above. Another very smart sort. Moving a bit loosely in front here.

OB (5) 1st Craigie's Imbali Azizi. Lovely quality bitch, very sound and balanced on the move. She held her topline well and impressed me with her fluent movement. Best Bitch and Best in Show; 2nd Bowden's Rejan Tamba. Good type again well constructed but did not appreciate the surface in the hall.
