Betting was brisker on Friday and Saturday, principally in connection with the C.J.C.-Handicap. Salvage still jhotds his place of favorite, and was backed at one pot for 205 to 55, and left off firm at 3to 1. 500 to 80 has been laid about Lady Emma, and 5 to 1 is the best price now obtainable. Turquoise has been backed t’o win a good stake at 100 to 20, whilst 7 to 1 was offered freely about Betrayer without a response. The following are Saturday’s quotations : Derby. Even money agst Cheviot sto 2 agst Nonsense 5 1 Vanguard 8 C.J.C. Handicap. 3 to 1 agst Salvage 4 1 Turquoise 5 1 Lady Emma 7 1 Betrayer 10 1 others. Canterbury Cup. 3 to 1 on the field. Weclome Stakes. 2 to 1 agst Oudeis 3 1 Malefactor 4 l others. [by telegraph.] Christchurch, To-day. All horses engaged at the meeting had training gallops this morning, except Betrayer, who is reported queer, he having been absent from exercise on the last two mornings. Ohevioc easily disposed of Vanguard. Of the other Derby horses, Nonsense moved the best, and looked very well. Salvage did not please the touts so much as on the previous morning, neither did Welcome Jack who had all his work to beat Whitbach over a mile. Turquoise did capital work, and Oudeis showed splendid form in a half mile gallop.
