KING'S PRIDE DOING WELL King's Pride, which created such a good impression by scoring at his first start, is doing nicely in his work at Takanini, and in all probability will be ready to race early. By Robin Goodfellow —Falcon, he is very highlv regarded, and, having wintered well, will be one three-year-old to attract attention.

NORTHERN DERBY WINNER The Great Northern Derby winner. Coronalre, is looking as well as ever, and the fact that he has been allotted short sprinting tasks of late indicates that he will be ready for early spring racing. On his day, Coronaire shaped like a true stayer, but not infrequently let his supporters down. At a year older his form may be more consistent. WHITE BLAKE EXERCISING White Blaze has been doing quite a deal of exercise round the roads at Takanini, and, all going well, it is anticipated that she will be taken to the tracks next month, her recovery apparently being almost complete. In trotting exercise, the Foxbridge filly shows no signs of soreness, and, despite her enforced idleness, she is expected quickly to regain form.

THE PIONEER WINNER Roynl Slipper looks as well as any of the Takanini three-year-olds, and is going along satisfactorily in her training. The Paper Slipper filly won the Pioneer Handicap, the first juvenile event of the current season, and it appears that she will again be ready to show to advantage early in the new season, when she will race in open company. CHANGE OP STABLES The latest addition to the ranks of Takanini horses is the rising three-year-old Chief Robin, which has joined N. Cunningham's stable. He is a bay colt by Christopher Robin from Limulus, and in five starts recorded a second to Jovial Song in the Karangahake Handicap at the Ohinemuri meeting last March. This youngster is in njee condition to undertake a preparation and should be a good prospect for a novice event in the new season.
