He outclassed the Derby Field and ton Erht was twice As popular As this morning for the �10,000 two mile race on tuesday. Although it is difficult to forecast Melbourne weather indications Are favourable for tuesday and it is expected that the very successful opening today of the Flemington Spring racing carnival when the tote takings were �8,000 better than on the first Day last year will be an indication of the Success of the meeting.

These four Are about equally favored next to talking. After the Derby talking settled Down in his stable and atae a Hearty meal although Mala put up a great race in the Derby talking Defeated him so easily today that i do not fancy Malas cup Chance. As has been pointed out since the Caulfield cup talking is the outstand ing three year old and i confidently expect him with an 18-lb. Drop in weight to defeat his older cup opponents. Racing has made such an improvement in him that it would not be surprising to see him score a runaway Victory. Silver Standard worked Well today and his connections Are confident about his cup Chance. He and desert chief both four year Olds Are the pick of the weights. Silver Standard with 7 8 and desert chief with 7 12. They both ran very Good races at crusader was responsible for a Good Effort in his second to Balkan Prince in the Hotham Handicap today and his Strong finish suggested a Good cup Chance. I think he will finish in front of Balkan Prince. Doncaster sur prised by his Strong Mackinnon stakes run and May do Well on tuesday and Bustard also has a cup Chance but Silver ring has lost favor. Probably sporting blood will account for Illunga who has yet to prove him self Over two Miles and Queen of song and Oro Are possibilities in spite of the fact that the Book makers Are taking no risks with the South australian Mare Amalia i do not fancy her Chance but dark chief i judiciously handled today in the hot Ham Handicap should not be discarded.

Beechwood was a head behind Mala in third place and was not disgraced. Today s Victory meant �3,800 in stake Money for or. Alan Cooper who bought talking for �19,000 after his Caulfield cup third.

I talking went really Well throughout the race and although he lugged a bit at times he went More generously than i in the Caulfield cup continued his i rider. He added that talking s performance was a sound cup trial and he thought the Colt would run a great race on tuesday. The real Point of interest in the jockeys stories after the race was w. Cook s claim that talking is still not the Best Colt. Cook maintains that on equal conditions Mala is Superior to talking. He said that Mala did not go Well in the Early stages but came Home really Well and it was Only the Effort of a Good Colt to do what Mala did. R. Parsons had no excuses to offer for the failure of Shakespeare except that the Colt could not handle the dead going. He said Shakespeare Hung in several times and at the five furlongs and again at the Home turn actually struck the running rail. A. Beasley said boo Garry ran a Good race to the turn but talking was too Good for him. W.
