Critique from Sydney Royal 2013:
"A very nice dog, very good tail and expression, excellent top line, good angles, excellent coat texture, very light on his feet, good spring action, a nice young dog, has lots of potential"
at the 100th Afghan Hound Club of NSW under Mrs Diane Burvee (USA).
"I could not help myself but keep going back to this majestic black-masked brindle dog with a kingly presence that just cannot be denied. He has an aristocratic aura about him that draws me in, and makes me his captive audience. He trots into my ring with an attitude that dares and he moves with such confidence he just could not be spared. A commanding stallion that was shown to pure perfection by his master handler who orchestrated a chilling free stack that defined showmanship in the first degree. A strong masculine head garnished with the most posh mandarins that added type and detailing to this headpiece and overall appeal, this quality exhibit brings to the table a lot of male charisma, a lot of high style and a lot of breed type. Beautiful long foreface, with traces of defined chiseling, long arched neck of strength, level back, lavish long ring tail, and a well- proportioned body that is draped in well-coiffed luscious coat of wonderful silky texture. When I started to go over him, I was delighted to start with a solid front and finish with a luxurious sweeping rear which are the mechanics of a good conformation that allows him to move with such an easy, springy, and yet wide open side gait. Just a dream to watch him float round the ring in sync with his handler every stride of the way. Both on the stack, and on the move, he was sublime and I was mesmerized."

98th Specialty Critique:
"Impressive brindle with wicked expression in super chiselled head. Longest of necks in balance with his long ring tail. Corresponding angles front and rear. Prominent pin bones. Moved with ground covering springy strides."
at the 97th Afghan Hound Club of NSW under Mrs Kerin Hutchings (Suliman Afghans).
