As a four-year-old in' the 1922-23 season Young Thurnham showed a fair amount of promise, - winning , two- of the minor events at the Great Northern Meeting. Since then he has raced very-little,-.: and has: passed through a number ■ of hands. He-is a victim of uusoundness, but survived j the three miles of the Winter. Steeplechase at Ellerslfe, finishing up- a very: moderate fourth to Kawini after a number of horses had fallen in front of him. He is engaged in the ■ Hawkes Bay Steeplechase to-morrow, and if start-; ed must have at least a jumper's chance.' Being now an old horse he cannot have a strong recommendation; but it Will be interesting to see 'how hevshapes:, A-'Likely 'Chaser. ;-:'■.* List jumping season Rangi'Saitb proved himself over the Riccarton. country, when he .defeated Radiate in tfife . Lincoln Steeplechase, although it was. agreed by most that S. Henderson's riding ability played a big part in his success: He was produced in the Wanganui Steeplechase this year, and finished second to Brigadier Bill. The race evidently found him I
.out,, for he co,uld do no better than finish iourth .on the-next day in a weaker field. He should be a much fitter hon, now, and should; play his part well in his engagements in the immediate future. He had an. engagement made for him in the ■Hawkes Bay Steeplechase to-morrow. ,'. A One-Time Good Galloper. Kick Off, foaled in 1918, is bow in the veteran stage, but apparently hopes are held of his staging a real come-back He is engaged.in open flat events as well as hack hurdle races afc both t] ■ Hawkes Bay and Trentham Meetings. In the autumn- he^ was galloping well, but showing signs of unsoundness. L. Wilsenwisely decided to put him by , until the tiacks became easier. It is a big thing to asL a horse to. "come back" after a long absence from' the .winning list, but the ola son of All BJaek was a real claS horse at h.s^est ;and being now down ;WelS? tS hemay te capable of showing a clean pair of heels yet his younger opponents.. Probably he will be fhWeef 11 th^Sawl?es Say Meeting Sprinters at Hastings. : : At Otaki Maui lejeived 101b from Moutoa Treasury and won with the latter hi third place, less than two lengths away Moutba Treasury apparently in that event did not receive: the best of passages. 'For the Hastings Meeting tomorrow Moutoa .Treasury was handicapped to meet Jlaui on 111b better terms, with R.

Appearances Deceptive. InAiterica some owners have a weakness :i or.pretty sheets and showy trappings .for. their horses, and -when Reigh Count, arrayed in this fashion, paraded atlangneld, he took some of the racegoers off their legs. "Eapier,!' of the Illustrated ;S. and D. News," says that one onlooker, who was impressed by Reigh Counts raiment ejaculated, "Lumme, 11! lm 'ere t0 «et >im fflar™V':<? • ♦ S at ms ment Eeigb. Count passed into the parade ring, a dazzling apparition in trappings of gay and brilliant yejlow. The writer quoted added that no Ul?i CTer ?^ pped tato critical so perfectly and immaculately arrayed Unfortunately, Reigh Count did not show racing form in keeping with his clothing.

King Lv and Queen Arch area pair of notable absentees from the Trentham nominations This looks as if King Lv is to be retired to the stud, as reported While out at the hunt at Tamahere iast week Lucess, a member of W J M Lean s team at Cambridge, got rid of his rider at a fence. The Lucullus gelding fouled the wire and was cut about the chest.
Pompeiiis and Star Comet, members of P. Brady's team, had their first qualify, ing run of the season with the Waikato Honnda at Tamahere last week. Pompeius jumped well, while his stablemate got roprrid' safely. Pompeius was runner-up to Welfcne on the flat in the concluding e«-ent of the 1 Auckland Meeting. ° .Amongst the nominations for the Tafcapuna and Wynyard Plates, the semi-classic eyents ot the Takapuna Club next season, are- Bs-Demo, DueHona, Tourist, Footpad,
Push, and Crash, all of whom are trained at Trentham. .
According to Sydney reports, the teams of H. B. Lorigan and E. Yuille, whohad a rough trip to Sydney, have made good recovery with the exception of Catuna, whp was cut about. They are working ■along -well at Randwick, and appear to be in;good order.' ; . , :
