MICHAEL IMPRESSIVE Special. WANGANUI, Monday. The Wanganui Guineas candidate Michael is in great heart and the way this son of Broiefort is getting through his work suggests that he will carry Mr. A. H. Hurley's colours prominently in his three-year-old engagements. It is intended to give him a run at the Taranaki Hunt meeting.
Behave, winner of three races as a two-year-old, has wintered particularly well and promises to play his part with distinction in spring engagements, which include the Wanganui Guineas. Red Chief has not been on the track since Awapuni, where he was unlucky, as he was brought down through another horse falling in front of him just as he was making a forward move. Red Chief is, however, none the worse for the mishap and will probably race at New Plymouth.
Good Effort continues to make steady progress and track watchers expect the son of Robin Goodfellow to prove above the average as a three-year-old. He is an ideal stamp, with an easy style of galloping, and has shown speed. J. Boyd should have Good Effort in fine trim for the Wanganui Guineas and if he races up to expectations the son of Robin Goodfellow will go to Ellerslie for the Great Northern Guineas.
Stony Broke ran a good race for third at Awapuni and now looks greatly improved. The son of Inflation may be taken to New Plymouth for the hunt meeting. Derryogue ran her worst race to date in the President's Handicap at Awapuni, failing to put any of her usual dash into her effort. The Foxlight filly is looking as well as ever again and may make amends at the Wanganui meeting.
