THE WAKANUI RACE.
All the three entered for this event have been hard at it lately taking their preliminaries. Out-and-Outer is in excellent form, and judging by his recent performances, ought to have no trouble in securing the premier position on that eventful day. Anyhow he is a -hot favorite. Printer’s Ink has gone up a bit in the betting market since he went into training, and if he only manages to sustain and extend the favorable impression he has made in certain quarters he may possibly astonish the knowing ones yet. But he is not quite so much fancied in other places—many have no “ confidence” in him. Little Lex is not much heard of ; his style is quiet, and he has a different way of going to work to either of his rivals. His backers fancy he is going to pull it off but it is questionable, I should say. Anyhow he is game enough and means to go for the ; prize as well as he knows how. “One consideration with anotner ” I am inclined to place the three thus : OUT-AND-OUTER 1 Printer’s Ink 2 Lex 3 Ballot Box.
