Don't you have Royal Canin over there? If so, thats a decent food. Otherwise I'd go with the Purina Pro Plan.

James Wellbeloved seems like a decent brand as far as quality. But I am not a fan of the ingredients. The first ingredient in all of their rice formulas is, of course, rice.

This in their ingredients list for their Lamb & Vegetable Adult formula:

Lamb meat meal, pea starch, potato flakes, tomato pomace, lamb fat, whole linseed, lamb gravy, peas, sugar beet pulp, pea protein, alfalfa, carrot, natural seaweed, chicory pulp, sodium chloride, calcium carbonate, D,L-methionine, lysine hydrochloride, threonine, zinc methionate.
