2021 Malta Golden D-Cup

The second edition of the Golden D-Cup was held on the 4th December at the Mosta Communal Hall which is situated in the heart of Malta.

This was the second edition which reached a total 243 exhibits, all champion, which is why the show was labelled “The Show of Champions”.

The Golden D-Cup was created and named by a small group of friends who wanted to preserve the Maltese and British connection and the way the Gloster Canary is exhibited.

The strong bond between the two countries, which has a history of 25 years of exhibiting local birds in the British standard show cage, was dented when the black D-Cup drinker was abolished from the Maltese Islands, ironically on the 20th anniversary from its inception.

This move triggered the creation of the Golden D-Cup All Gloster Open Show which saw the standard drinker coming back with a bang, this time even in Gold, Silver and Bronze, three drinkers that are taken home by the winners and runner-up.

The judge for this year’s show was Bruno Chetta, from France, who did an excellent job and left an overall good impression on all the Maltese exhibitors.

The Best Gloster in Show was won by Raymond Borg with a lovely unflighted buff consort hen that was a deserved winner. Best Opposite Head in Show was also won by Raymond with a beautiful variegated buff corona hen that could have also won the show, as she was equally superb.

The Aggregate Cup was won by Mario Zahra who scored a total 173 points, winning 9 classes and eleven 2nd & 3rd placings in all categories.

Other winners included:

Third Best in Show, Best Corona Hen, Best Consort Hen and Best Consort Cock all won by Raymond Borg.

Best Corona Cock was won by Mario Zahra.

Best Buff – Raymond Borg;

Best Three Parts Dark – Mark Cilia who also won Best Grizzle;

Best Cinnamon – Mario Zahra;

Best Yellow – Raymond Borg

Best White was won by Peter Falzon.

The organisers of the Golden D-Cup would like to thank Bruno Chetta (Judge) for his super job, all the exhibitors for believing in the show concept and all the sponsors for supporting an event that is fast becoming “one to list on your calendar”.
