RICCARTON TRAINING NOTES. " Spectator," in yesterday's Christchurch • Press,' has the following:—" Yesterday morning was mild and inviting. By way of change I walked out to the course, arriving there too late to see Dudu, Cynisca, British Lion, and Alsace work, but their tasks were of a light order, long, slow cantering exercise being allotted to each. Wakatipu, with bandages, etc., accompanied Son-of-aJ Gun twice round at a strong pace, Son-of-a-Gun having the sweaters on. The latter began sore, but finished up better than usual, though showing sore again after being dressed. Helmsman was sent a round fast. Lorraine put in two rounds at three-quarter pace for the greater part of the journey. Merrie England, with Derritt in the saddle, put in long slow work. Rosebud and Springston ran a mile and a half fast, Peerswick joining in at Cutts'a, and though left at first, got up and finished with Springston, a length in advance of Rosebud, but the latter wanted to go on. Alma and Chain Shot, with sweaters on, did a fast once round. Both are improving horses. Catamount's task was a long three-quarter pacfi one. Sultan was not on the course, but was seen doing walking exercise near his trainer's stables during the morning." CRICKET. The annual meeting of the Port Chalmers Cricket Club was hold in tho Port Chalmers Hotel on Tuesday evening, Mr E. G. Allen (presidont) in tho chair. There was a fair attendance of mombers.
