TRAINING AT EIiXERSLIE The highlight of this morning's semifinal training at Ellerslie for the Pakuranga Hunt Club races on Saturday was a work-out over six furlongs by the Jellicoe Handicap candidates Chung Chong and Kara Avis. They jumped away on terms and were together practically all the way, though Chung Chong had the edge on his companion at the finish, clocking 1.21 for the distance, the last half-mile in 54 l-ss. Chung Chong has improved and hardened up during the past couple of weeks and, as he only had a two weeks' spell following the Great Northern meeting, he should be capable of running a good race on Saturday. British Talent and Our Gold, two more Jellicoe horses, completed six furlongs in 1.24, the former being clear at the finish. Their prospects will be enhanced if the going is particularly heavy. Training was on the No. 1 grass, the poles being out 10 feet, and the going on the heavy side. Tiger Tan, one of the prime fancies for the Admiralty Handicap, came home from the three-furlongs post in 39 3-ss. He handled the track in good style and will strip in great order at the week-end. Novice Shows Dasli The best effort over four furlongs was accomplished by the novices, Bay Jim, which beat Tu Maro in 52 2-ss. The former is by Dink from Tip Toes, but has yet to race. The next best over half a mile was credited to Rampede, which put more dash into his work than usual to record 535, while Skymaster and Gaelic Salute were only a fraction worse. Heroic Star took 53 2-ss, Nawab 54 3-ss, Royal Duke 555, Toiling Teddy 555, Sir Dingle and Rajalal 555, Camp Queen and Beaumai 54 2-ss. Other gallops were: — Five furlongs: Dinky Di, 1.9 4-5; General Lytup beat Dies Faustus, 1.9 4-5; Bournemouth and Good Bay beat Hunting Mac, 1.9 4-5; Golden Bay, 1.9 3-5; Chaka, 1.10. Superb, Bronzo and United Nations were clear of Sir Rajah at the end of a round run in 2.6 4-5. Superb went well and United Nations also pleased. On the sand Sir Dink and Kindroon traversed six furlongs in 1.19 4-5. Both horses were running on solidly at the finish.

Sporting Nation (Bailey) and Forest Hill (Kerr) gave a safe display of jumping over a round of the steeplechase fences. Eire Boy (Lynch) went with them, but balked at the first fence on the hill. He was remounted and completed the course, but did not impress. British Mint (Hain) cleared four hurdles in the centre, giving a satisfac-, tory exhibition. TO RIDE AT ELLERSI/IE Southern riders who will figure at the Pakuranga meeting include A. G. Waddell and K. Ford. The former has been engaged by F. E. Hall to ride Some Swell and Old Scot, while Ford's programme is in E. Pope's hands.
