Judge, Alisdair Davidson of Poldean, Newton Wamphray, Moffat, said: "He is the best Salers bull here and is exactly what a modern type Salers  should be. He's good on his legs and walks well. 

In reserve supreme was the reserve senior, Preenbank Lord Charles from Fred Robinson's Preenbank herd at Highfields Farm, Church Preen, Church Stretton, Shropshire. Just two weeks older than Kaimburn Lewis, he is by the Denver-sired, Seawell Invader and out of Preenbank Christabel, a daughter of Poldean Robbie.
