SHAPING WEMi AT WAXGANUI Special. WANGANUI, Monday. With the near approach of the Taranaki Hunt and Wanganui spring meetings, track work is becoming of increasing interest. On Saturday the going was heavy after rain and horses were getting into it. Two Wanganui Guineas candidates, Behave (G. Ivil) and Michael (K. Chote), were associated in a spin over four furlongs. Behave had the better of the jump off, but Michael quickly ranged alongside of him and then drew ahead, but was loafing over the last furlong and the pair finished on terms in 51 l-ss. Hulabaloo went six furlongs, which he left behind in 1.20. He is to race at New Plymouth. Stony Broke* and Good Effort were companions over six furlongs. They kept together to register 1.201, doing it nicely. The former is to go to New Plymouth and should give a good account of himself. Two youngsters which are to contest the Debutant Stakes, Court Crier and Mr. Pym, were restricted to useful pace work. Both are trained by H. Benge and they are fairly well forward. Mr. Pym has furnished into a splendid looking youngster and is one of the most solid Gyneriums seen out, with beautiful action. This half-brother to Killeymoon and Leighon s Glory is very promising, Kilarney Boy (K. Chote) slipped over half a mile by himself in 51s, the first two in a tick over 245. He is to be given a run at New Plymouth. „ Master Francis had Derryogue as a companion in a five-furlong flutter. Derryogue was on the outer and covered a lot of extra ground, but was doing .it easily, the time being 1.5 1-5.
