There isn't any mystery here, the European handlers very often cross top-notch trial males with top-notch farm worker female.  The other side of the coin being that farm workers need the trial genes for good farm working and the trialers need the farm working genes for good trialing. 


So this goes back again to what I was saying ;) :  It's just a skewed perception of  people watching trial who notice the change and fail to notice that it is them that changed not the dogs.
