KENTISH SHOWS DASH
SMART HALF-MILK SPRINT With improved ground conditions, there was more fast work than usual at Ellerslie this morning, when the No. 3 grass track was available. The going was a shade on the heavy side, and consequently times were not particularly fast. Kentish was responsible for the best trial, coming home from the half-mile post in 51 4-ss. He had a lot of pace on when he jumped away; still, it was a smart effort. Yes Tor completed the last three furlongs of her work in 395, and was going nicely at the finish. The stablemates British Talent and Our Gold traversed six furlongs in 1.22 1-5, being limed to run the final three furlongs in 41s. There was nothing between them at the finish, and both horses pulled up well. Nawab reeled oft three furlongs in 40s and was running on in good style at the end. In a similar task Lusmore and Wild Blood took 30 3-os, Camp Queen 435. Gay Star 42 l-5s and Raphael 42 l-ss. Gaelic Salute and Chong Chong were under restraint throughout four furlongs run in 55 2-ss. Both these horses are in great order to commence the new season. Over the same distance Malice took 545, Royal Honour and Brome 53 4-ss, and General Lytup, ~A 4-ss. Skymaster strode over five furlongs in 1.12 '2-5. He ran the first two furlongs in 27 2-ss, and eased up towards the finish. Sir Dingle (Anderson) was schooled over the pony hurdles, his display for a beginner being very encouraging.
