QUESTION NORTH STARS STAYING ABILITY. The best eolt of the coming year will be tliffi cult to find, writes the "Special Commissioner" in The London Sportsman, and it is well on the cards that he may be discovered in one whose book-form tines not suggest top class, such, for instance, as Colleger. At present, however, we must judge by results, anil this test puts Knutsford on top, though closely pressed by Planet. North Star has gone to America, and there is no great use iu arguing about him, but I expect we shall find that even in the Cnitetl States he is no great stayer, gamely though he finished for the Middle Park Plate. To my mind Margin-thai and Diadem are better fillies than Molly Desmond, and they are most certainly finer individuals.
