DERRYOGUE IS FIT
TO COMPETE AT WEEK-END Special to Star. WANGANUI, Tuesday. Derryogue has done well since running third in the Whyte Handicap at Trentham and she worked nicely this morning in covering a round, the last three furlongs in 40s. The Foxlight filly is one of the most contented horses in the land and retains her form wonderfully well. She is to contest the President's Handicap at Awapuni on Saturday, when she will carry ■ 8.2 and will be ridden by IC. Chote.
Hulabaloo and Master Francis were companions in some useful work, in the coursg of which they ran three furlongs in 41s, both doing it well.
Hulabaloo is top-weight in the Champion Hack Cup with 9.6. The Baffles gelding has gone on the right way since entering H. Benge's stable and should be ready to show of his best on Saturday. If the conditions are heavy, Hulabaloo will be quite at home.
Master Francis is also to run in the Hack Cup. The Francis Drake gelding appears to have benefited by the course of jumping he has had and may yet earn some money.
Red Chief is hitting out very freely and the Colussus gelding will not want for friends in the Bracelet. His stablemate, Audram, is also going along well and has shown his ability to jump. The Resinous gelding is to run in the Hack Hurdles on Saturday. Michael in Good Order Two rising three-year-olds, Michael and Good Effort, were associated over a couple of rounds at half-pace, with a sprint over two furlongs, in which they were not after time. This was Michael's first gallop since resuming and he acquitted himself well. G. Rayner has the Broiefort gelding in splendid order forthis stage of his preparation and Michael promises to run prominently in his three-year-old engagements, which include the Wanganui Guineas.
Good Effort continues to train on well and this son of Robin Goodfellow should want for nothing on the score of condition when Guineas day arrives.
The rising three-year-old Light Fantastic, by Foxbridge—La Bru, is making steady progress. She will probably make her debut in the Maiden at Wanganui. Keith Chote's mounts at Awapuni on Saturday will include Derryogue, Piko Piko and Master Francis.
The Inflation gelding Sterling Lad, which has heen an inmate of H. Benge's stable for two or three months, has heen sold to a patron of W. P. Hogan's stable. Sterling Lad has improved in his behaviour at the barrier lately and he may not be long in winning a race, especially if tried over the hurdles.
