Ch Al Caliphs Zobeyni JW - CC and Best of Breed
Judge - Mrs Clair Chryssolor (Anasazi Salukis)
whose show report reads
   "CC, BOB & G2, Copperthwaite’s Ch Al Caliphs Zobeyni, ringside judging is so much easier, I thought he was big & I was wrong, 
what a surprise when I watched him walk into the ring & dominate immediately, to go over him was a pleasure, a classic & old
       fashioned Saluki with a fine head, long neck into a perfectly balanced & angled shoulder & upper arm to a lovely topline,
     extremely deep brisket with good, well sprung rib, excellent tight feet, an amazingly wide thigh to balanced stifle & low hock
, excellent muscle, movement was effortless & light."

Hound Group 2 -
Judge - Mrs Anne MacDonald
whose Group report reads.....

 "G2 was the Saluki, Ch Al Caliphs Zobeyni, built on such lovely flowing lines this 7 years male is not only

beautiful in stance but can also move correctly holding his outline in profile, very good forehand,

 good ribbing & rise over the loin, nice low hocks, true & accurate in movement, which I’m sad to say,

is hard to find in this breed today, liked him very much."
