Dahlia Cup


For the first time I'm intending on entering the "Dahlia Cup" at a local horticultural show in Sept here in Surrey...using dahlias cut from my garden like below...I'm not expecting to win or anything...just for a bit of fun and gain some experience....has anyone done something similar or have any advice?

How long before the show should I cut the flowers?  Should I choose blooms which are looking their best, or look like they're just about to come into bloom?

Never done this before so any advice appreciated!  Many thanks!  WP
