CLASSIC RACE NEXT WEDNESDAY
The Derby, ., the most discussed race in the English-speaking world, will be run at Epsom next Wednesday. Recent cables to Australian Raper^fshow«that Ti'Gall Boy and Sickle are' Joint; first favourites, with" Adam's Apple- second choice; Apparently the first t^o, who were beaten into minor places by Adam's Apple' in the Two Thousand Guineas,. are expected to do better at. Epsom. Others mentioned in the betting are Hot Night. Money Maker, Kinkardine,. .;anA.': Shian- 1 Mor., Some doubts appear to exist as to Donoghue's ■■mountj and latest advices are tl»a:t it r will be Vanbc, owned By Eleanor Lady Torrington. When the last racing season ended it was generallyl agreed "that Call" Boy would be the most likely colt among the two-year-olds to win the Derby this year, and that expectation seems more than likely to be realised. Call Boy was beaten in the Two Thousand Guineas, but he was evidently backward in condition. That he has gone on the. light,way since was demonstrated J>y the easy 1 manner in which he beat the lot opposed to him in the Newmarket Stakei, which is run over a course of a ; quarter of a mile longer than the It seems reasonably certain .he will reverse in the-Derby the Guineas running with Adam's 'Apple, as there seems; to be an idea that sprinting rather than yfetaying". is I&ifijjaiiie' which will best; suit ,Ada.m'sf Apple." Yet there is no reason-so iidt':\'as \yhi»}£b'reeding is concerned ;"sphy Adam's Apple should not stay. His pedigree is fyfr of; staying blood. Adam's pie is byVPdnVmern from Mount Whistle, by William the-Third; and appeals'oh his dam's side. Call. Boy, however, is by Hurry Oh, gire of the Derby winners Captain Cuttle and Coronach, from .Come-' diennc, bySJJachplor Double. It isvpoer^, sible that tf'lUtle^S.ews will filter through 1 from England between now and Derby Day. ■ ■.';£, % - :
