At the Ohoka races on Thursday, Rosebud (9at) won the Cup and Tornado (8,9) the Handicap. •..■,, \- Ilin «' ' Tirailleur has been consistently supported for the New Zealand Cup since his win at Napier on Tuesday, and is now a decided favorite for this event, anything over 3 to 1 being eagerly snapped up. Metric England is next in demand at 100 to 16, and a point less is accepted about Dudu and Sultan, These are all that are really being inquired for. For the Derby Merrie England and Cynisca are moßt in demand. Reeves will probably have the mount on Tirailleur in the Cup and White on Sultan.
