Our Napier correspondent wires “Of the New Zealand Cup candidates that have run at our local meetings a few words may not prove amiss. Recluse was a great favorite for the Racing Club Handicap. He was tho slowest to move, and to avoid the fallen horses had to make a bit of a detour. He was, however, last all the way, being nearly distanced. The horse is short of work, though the owners consider the Cup all over. Yesterday he was only carrying Clb over his Cup weight, but was last; while the previous day Tirailleur had 301b over and won. It is true that Tirailleur has not made fast times, but both courses have been heavy, and the horse has won each time very easily. Whisper was in grand fettle, and has run consistently ; but I am satisfied that she is not class enough for a two-mile fast race, Lady Florin is a jade, and yesterday’s victory was due to her two most formidable opponents falling. Strephon has very much disappointed Mr Munn’a party, for they considered the Guineas well within their grasp. Renata, who is In the Christchurch Derby, is a perfect gentleman, but has simply played second fiddle to his stable companion, and when wanted will make his opponents travel. Ho is fractious at the post, but oucc the flag falls he has a great turn of speed.” MELBOURNE BETTING NOTES.
