Your females are VT and they are not dragons.
Do you know the genetic background of the fish?
Personally I wouldn't breed any of them because they have many issues in form BUT...
Getting rid of a long anal fin is something that takes a little work and you might not see good results until the 3rd generation. It will require very selective breeding and a lot of culling.
If you breed them to an HM you will get deltas. You will have to pick an HM with a short anal fin.
You mention you want to shorten their anal fin, what if you plan for the caudal?

They definitely aren't dragons, what do you mean by half dragon? Recessive trait? If so then they easily could be half of anything else aswell without knowing the genetic backround. There are lots of recessive traits that could come out with this spawn

I honestly ant aware of those IBC Betta standars and what makes a great fish But the Anal fins look a bit Long and the dorsals look to , small and thin on the 2 and 3 one. They also have somewhat unbalanced fins. Please don't trust all of this information unless a knowledgable breeder such as Mr. V. Or indjo has confirmed these

This link will take you to a page that shows IBC standards for ideal forms:
http://ausaqua.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=10287
You will have to log in/sign up but this is where I've found the best descriptions of form and finnage on bettas.
I cannot post pictures because I'm pretty sure that website prohibits it.

Really? LOL!
So what will you be working on now? VTs?
I would love to see someone develop a great VT line... I would definitely but one!
But I love my HMs and it's all I want to breed for now.
