TOPICAL COMMENT

OX DIFFICULT MARK Loyal King, which is now trained for Mr. H. Drcwery by \V. R. Butt, at Templeton, is asked to concede a 36 yard start to most of the Speedway Handicap field, and. on his recent form, his chance of success does not appear bright. Mr. Drewery's promising improver, .Margaret Hall, is also in the same stable. A rLACE PROSPECT Battle Colours has now reached a mark where he will not win out of his turn, but he always runs an honest race. A good beginner, he should be well placed early in the Winter Handicap, and may take part in the finish. He is owned and trained by F. Young, of Methven, who has been successful with Dryham Lea recently. OX A TIGHT MARK New Worthy, winner of the 1940 Auckland Trotting Cup, has been nominated for the Winter Handicap at Addington, where he is handicapped on the 24 yards mark. As he has not raced since October, 1041, he would appear to be at a disadvantage. Ned Worthy is now trained by W. R. Butt for Mr. D. McCosker, of Ashburton. A CONSISTENT MARE Even from 36 yards behind, Mae Wynne must be given a good chance against the improving trotters at Addington. In her last six starts she has recorded one win, four seconds, and a third placing. This mare was bred by Mr. P. McCarthy, of Oamaru, and is by Wrack from Rose Queen, by Nelson Bingen from Teresita, by Marvin Wilkes from a mare by Young McKinney. Her third dam was by the thoroughbred Cloth of Gold. Mae Wynne is trained by 1.. F. Berkett at Hope, for the well-known Weslport sportsman Mr. W. Roche.
