Judge Anita Turner:

Thank you to the friendly committee for your kind invitation to judge bitches at The Lightening Club Preston. Also, a big thankyou to my 2 efficient stewards Lorraine and Jenna who were fantastic.

Competition in Whippet bitches is strong, and the quality is high. I was splitting hairs in a lot of classes and many worthy Whippets that had to go cardless. I was looking for a Whippet with unexaggerated angulation breed type and accurate foot fall. I also like a Whippet bitch to look feminine.

1ST Rodgers Wentvalley Divine Diva.

This Brindle & white trim puppy really impressed me with her outstanding profile movement, she went around the ring with ease whilst keeping her topline, she isn’t overlong and she has a gentle curve over the loin, she is also perfect for size. I did think she would be my BPB but after a long day she lost out to the MPB.

2nd Johnston & Wilsons Danluke don’t I know it.

A brindle girl longer in the body than one, she is a fluent mover moving with a drive whilst keeping her topline, she also is well balanced.
