NEARING HIS BEST
The outside grass at Takanint was in, a very heavy state this morning and trainers refrained from sending horses against the watch, so that no fast times were registered. However, Coronaire worked impressively in company with Balfron over half a mile, which was put behind in 55 3-ss. Coronaire was pulling hard at the finish, and looks certain to be ready early in the season. Jovial Song again revealed dash to record 55 2-ss, but was doing his best. Yours and Mine showed up nicely in 565, Bronya requiring 575, and La Fillette and Sousa' (under restraint) oßs. In sprinting three furlongs in 425, Black Ace was seen in a promising light, and he left the impression that he had a good deal in reserve. Royal Slipper recorded 52 2-ss, Peter Gregor easily clocked 455, Omaio 445, and General Burleigh and Some Swell 44 3-ss. Yorkish and Regal March wore sent five furlongs, and they went very well, indeed, particularly Yorkish, his time being i.ll. This was equalled by . Beau Dink and Dollar Money, the latter shaping encouragingly for a novice.
