A highlight were the lovely simple changes”, for which an 8 was given. For submission, the combination obtained a 9 and the overall impression was granted an 8.5.
Like the previous times, Las Vegas (Ferdaux out of Dalia Delin ster keur PROK out of Wynton) was victorious. The Ferdeaux-son obtained the exact same score as in Ermelo: 91 points.
