Doncaster and cup o commission launched for stand by Frances tres Sady improving Fred Power s mishap by Cardigan in Sydney stand by is a sure visitor to Sydney for the . Autumn meeting. He was backed in Sydney on tuesday for a Good stake for the cup. Fred Power who was at one time at the head of the cup quotations went amiss during the week. Stand by was backed on monday for the Sydney cup and the demand was so solid for him that he is now actually at the head of the quotations. Evidently his owner has decided to give the South Austi Alian races the go by and bring that Colt to Sydney As he has also been nominated for the minor races. The commission launched on monday was probably from the stable. In addition to being backed straight out he was coupled in doubles with fancied Doncaster fancies. It is a Long time since an Adelaide horse was favorite for the Sydney cup or for that matter any big race at Randwick and it is to be hoped that stand by puts up a creditable showing. He certainly won the port Adelaide cup in Good style beating amongst others Bitallia but it is a far cry from the port cup to the Sydney cup. Still he is a Lanius and Ood judges who saw him win Tell e is a Good stayer. Two great rivals. The rain during the week was very Welcome to trainers As the tracks needed softening. However it also put an end to any fast work that might have taken place As no grass tracks were available at Randwick. Most of the visiting horses worked slowly. I had heard that Frances tres Sady did not make the trip from Melbourne too Well but she looked very Bright and has i think actually put on condition since the Flemington meeting. This is a pretty Good sign and if she gets Over her nervousness in a Field might shape Well in the Sydney cup. She will certainly be hard to beat in the Leger. Her great rival Drongo has fined Down very considerably since the . Meeting and looks a trifle drawn. He is not a repossessing looking gelding at the Best of times and the severe racing he has had in the last month or so has taken it out of him a trifle. Still he has plenty of time to get quite to his Best. H. Mccalman s team. Sandringham has done Well since his arrival in fact All Mccallian s team Are thriving. Whittier looks bigger than when he ran in the Newmarket and is very free again. It is a great pity that one of his tendons is troubling him As Mccalman May not be Able to give him quite As much work As he would like. Acc Arak has had an easy time since the australian cup and has put on condition. He will however probably have a couple of runs in Sydney prior to the cup. He is a vastly improved j horse in appearance and also in i galloping ability and is one of the few genuine Handicap stayers at present racing. Balaton very free. Balaton is at Home in the soft going and if the track be heavy on Sydney cup Day it would not be against him. He is rapidly getting into condition and up to the present does not show any signs of the soreness in front that he i was troubled with in the Spring. Claro is another Chestnut britishers that likes the track holding and he is looking very Avell again. He Only went slowly and was anxious to go fast and before the meeting commences will possibly break a few records. His stable mate la Neffe is a Stocky looking customer who put on a Deal of condition in his Short respite after the january meeting. He has proved a High class sprinter and i notice that he is also engaged in the autumn stakes on the first Day of the meeting. Fred Power amiss. Duke isinglass is working and looking Well but it is against him that he will not have a run before the Doncaster. Fred Power who was Well in the Market for the Sydney cup broke Down at Victoria Park while working. He vent smartly Over half a mile but on pulling up was very Lam in the near foreleg. His heels have been giving his Trainer trouble and intending backers of Fred Power will be Well advised of await developments. It is unfortunate for s. Lamond that Fred Power should go at this stage As he has been very careful with him and the Chestnut looked like being hard to beat in some of the important events at the meeting. Doncaster favorite Well. Blackadder is now a pronounced Doncaster favorite and he is very fit. He has not done a great Deal of work since his return from Melbourne but on saturday went Over half a mile in great style. When i. Foulsham does begin to Send him a Long he will make fast times. Mont Clair is making a Little More noise than at the Christmas meetings but looks Well. Comptroller is rapidly getting into condition and he May possibly win a face before the big meeting conies round. If he does he will Advance in the Sydney cup quotations As a majority of Randwick freq enters Are very Sweet o his cup Chance. Master Ragou has done Well since he ran at Randwick but while he is a great Little horse the distance of the cup More than the weight May bother him. There is a disposition to Back Prince Toorak in the Doncaster who is also in f. J Marsden s stable and there is no doubt an improving horse. But whether he is quite up to Doncaster Standard is another matter. Stony is a very fit horse ii d on recent form is Well handicapped in the cup with 7.5. He has yet to prove that he can get beyond a mile and a half but under t Uch a Light weight should go a Long Way. Stony will possibly win a race before a he cup is run. George Price has another Good cup representative in the Cypher and perhaps the change of air from Melbourne to Sydney will do a lot f r him. It is to be hoped so As his Osne deserves a Little Good Fortune. Mirth maker is Bowling song As freely As Ever and Valdonna lbs was entered for the autumn stakes and is now in three races on the opening Day of meeting continues to do Well. It is hard to say what will be her Mission. To double m a d e on Fred Birrell saturday. April 5 Stan Whitford authorised by f. F. Ward Adelaide. ? Morphet Tville. ? 1- thursday.
