REGAL MARCH PLEASES
The Pakuranga candidates Yorkish and Regal March took the honours at Takanini this morning, when the gallops were on the middle grass, which was cutting out and becoming progressively worse as the morning wore on. They were on terms throughout their six-furlong trial, and in clocking 1.20 were responsible for a nice effort.' Both of them have dual engagements on Saturday, but it is thought that Yorkish will contest the Sylvia Park Handicap. Balfron finished a neck in front of Coronaire over six in 1.23, neither horse having anything in reserve at the finish. Night of Nights required 1.26 3-5, but could have improved. La Fillette and Sousa were associated over five furlongs in 1.7 3-5, the former easily having the measure of her companion. This time was equalled by Black Ace and Beau Martian, both of which worked well, the honours being with Black Ace. Bronya hit out well in 1.8, while Beau Dink, in clocking 1.9, gave the impression that ne could have done a good deal better. King's Pride worked impressively to finish four lengths in front of Balgowan in 1.9, and Perdition, after going fast early, was stopping at the end of his task in 1.12. Two Smart Sprinters The sprinters Sweet Biscuit and My Bonnie hit out with much of their former dash when they left half a mile behind in 52 l-ss. They look particularly well, and it should not taKe much to tiring them to the peak of their form. Byci-oft was also seen in a promising light when he finished clear of General Burleigh in similar time, but he had the first use of the track. Peter Gregor hit out pleasingly to clock 535, as also did Jovial Song and Foxlore, which finished on terms. Lord Chancellor was not bustled, taking 545, and Waiting recorded 54 2-ss. Other times over this distance were Old Scot and Golden Reign, 55 2-ss: Fiorin, 595; Omaio, 595; Step Land and Some Swell (from a barrier start), 555.
