Sharps » shooter was conceding 281 bto the winner* I The field* for the Debutant Stakes at ■ Caulfield was the smallest on Tecord. Yen- • tura and Deeside frightened owners into • waiting for handicaps. And both were beaten. " Terlinga " • says that* ., Deeside I was decidedly on her toes going down, and - she did not jump off well ,buther great pace carried her to the front entering the | straight. It looked all right for her. ' backers then; but -she tired over the last < furlong, and Golden Gauntlet beat her • easily. , Ventura got away better than. - Deeside, but did not get into her stride as '•■ she did m Sydney, and, m addition, she i did not get round the turn too well. At """^ > the finish she was going much stronger" than Deeside, and lam quite sure we did ' not see the best of her. It was a very ' ■ fast half-mile. The official time was 49| , sec, but an owner of great experience with the watch made it a second better than ; this. \ Golden Gauntlet was bred by a cleTgyman, the Rev. F. Campbell, got by Challenger (son of Isinglass} from Golden ' Queen t by Zalinski, from* Queen Bee, by ■ Snowden. ..• " | Lady Medallist forced the pace m the 1 Caulfield Stakes, says the same writer, and >; both Comedy King and Malt King ran her down. What ..happened him Ido not ' know, but, after coming round the top turn, Malt King, from being at the girths of the leaders, dropped 1 back fully six lengths. It looked for a moment as though his*rider was. going to pull him up. At the home turn Malt King seemed lessly out of it, but how did he lie -down , to it when his rider pulled out the' whip m the straight? It was a grand, performance to give Comedy King that start up the straight; and what a reception Mr O'Brien's horse got on returning to < scale. I' cannot remember any winner getting such a cheering at Caulfield. Mr Green and James Lynch can have no excuses for Comedy King this time. He could not have been ridden a better race. Certainly Malt King got last run, but he had to ■ make a mighty long run. , Another scribe says that Comedy. King , made a deliberate attempt to savage Malt .King about 60yds from the winning post, and he adds that had the black horse paid more serious attention to the particular , business on hand instead of making van at- , tempt to wolf the chestnut champion he -V . might possibly have reversed the 1 short * head defeat which he sustained. ' , They say that Flaith ought not to. have been beaten so easily m the CaulfiOTP Guineas. Some onlookers are of opinion that his rider was m too much of ifhurry to go after Popinjay. Cisco started at a long price — a sure sign that all was not well with the A.J.C. Derby winner.; The Toorak Handicap was a peculiar race. Nothing seemed to x want a" pace. Balmoral jumped out first, and was pulled back. Motoa practically led throughout, and the field was always well packed. When Lewis brought Balmoral through m the centre, backers of the chestnut expected him to cut. down Motoa and win, but the New Zealander easily held his own. A feature of the racing at Caulfi&ld on the second day was' the : poor, performance of Aurpfodina m the Eclipse Stakes. It was quite expected by a majority of Taring men that Comedy King would beat him,, but he was' generally regarded as likely to give "the imported horse a good race. He was, however, never once dangerous. That his form was all wrong was proved by his stable companion . Kuringai (who was at any price m the betting) finishing m front < of him. , '. ) A subsequent message to a Hobart paper supplies a possible explanation.' W. H. Smith was hampered with instructions. He was told to hold his horse back m the early part of the race. He did so, with the result, possibly, that Aurofodina sulked. At any rate he went unkindly afterwards, and hung oflt a lot. Smith was to be allowed to ride Aurofodina m his nvm. way m the Caulfield Cup. Obsono probably landed a fair stake m the Moonga Handicap. ' Elvanitfr was favorite, Motoa next m demand;; then came Lorn and Obsono at the same okds.
