Marsinal does not relish any distance over a mile. Perhaps the Kiwitea welter at Fielding to-day will suit Telford's prad.
DeeJey is to ride Mullingcr in the Aucklaud Cup. Hoy Heed is to rido Blackall. O'Shea was engaged for Watt's horse, but tho bandicapper weighted him a little too light.
Wellington press praises starter Cameron for his good work at Ashlnirst. This scribe never witnessed such poor despatching, the last raco t>f tho day being awful.
Probation is indexed good, and should win in better company than Jie met at Ashhurst. Telford has this -mar© very well at presefit.
Hastio and Sir Wallace are a pair of hacks that should improve ou Ash- Inirst running.
The cup presented to tho winner of tho Ashhurst Cup is nothing' to enthuse over. Being a farming district, scribe's prediction that war profits would stimulate the wealthy patrons of the Club to present something worthy of the occasion was quite ungrounded. Tom Ballinger, the winning owner, being a good sport, deserved a far bettor trophy.
Menelaus has been working well lately. A sprint race is soon due to this horse,
Square Deal, properly ridden, would have won the Ashhurst Cup. Nodder had him all over the course. Want also had a bad passage. These two should ' perform well at Feilding. Aplendidus ran very poor at Ash" hurst. This prad got a fly through a bad start, but collapsed very early when the pressure was lifted. He is a much overrated horse.
Crowhurst should find Dimeter hard to shake off at Fielding. Deeley will be aboard Greenwood's prad.
Ohiwia contracted a cold on tho evo cf flip Ashhurst meeting. Owuev Clifford was not at all keen on hi 9 chance, and the niaro perforated very poorly.
Among the ballot conscripts appear tho names of Arthur Oliver, the crack flat jockey, and George Fielding, tho hurdle rider.
