Keegan had sprinkled and rolled the track last night the going is still a bit cunpy and seemed to break a bit under a horse like A L Astes son of Jack Point With the track in the condition that it is likely to lie on Saturday Ten Point doubtless will find it more to his liking The trial of today gave him the work that is necessary to prepare him for his best effort in Saturdays classic At least
