In the reserve spot is the junior champion, (Lot 802) Sandelford Gilberto from G Henderson. He is the son of Sportsman Columbo and is out of Sandelford Tessa.  

French judge, Michel Baudot commented: “It was very close, there was no fault there and they were near perfect.”

When asked how the breed compared to Charolais in France he said the British cattle were now much more muscley, like the “French style”.
