POSSIBLE "NEW DERBY" CANDIDATES. Enough Good Three-Year-Olds in View to Fill Englands Substitute Derby. Entrie-s for the New Derby close on the 27th of this month, but the September Stakes, which is a substitute for the St. Leger, is not yet mentioned. This. [ take- it. means that some hope- exists of a resumption of sport on the Town Moor in September, ami it must Set be- overlooked that the-1 are- Interests involved in that meeting quite aparfa from the question of racing. The rates of all towns now an- a heavy burden, and Doncaster is one of those fortunate plans whose ele-bts arc-greatly relieved, if not entirely discharged, by the proceeds of their race courses. I have-, moreover, always been optimistic, the- one- feeling which keeps us nil going, and there is hound to be- such a change- during the next four or five months that further racing in the autumn might easilv be- possible. The conditions of the New Derby stipulate for thirty entries, and this number may require some getting, in a year win u racing is further restricted, though an opportunity arises for a few that hail been omitted from tl -iginal entry. Tie- best of the latte-r were His Majestys Luc know, Mr. Astors Ai.igph . Mr. Buchanans Atadara, Lord Derbys Seneschal ami Hainaiilt. Mr. Fairies Telc-phus. Gay Crusader and Lord Bay. Mr. D. Erasers Brown Prince, sir Bed wot th Minxs DuaseDon, Mr. Raphaels Tagamor, Lord Beaeberya Minstrel and Winkle-. Mr. I.. Rothschilds Planet and Vallanee. Mr. R. Sherwooels Sir Desmond. Mr. M. Singers Dresden, sir W. Tatema Grand Fleet, sir John Thursbys Verderer, Get Hall Walker* Kingston Black, Mr. Reid Walkers Invincible, Mr. Whit-taker*! Ho Tel, witii possibly Polyacra, Potychormy and Sundered of Mr. S. Joels. Mr. Arthur James Summiner. and the- smart filly Molly Desmoad. Mr. Hulton would have been obliged to rely on .lannock. Helford or Argument, and possibly several lesser lights might have- encouraged to e pete owing to the few good horses engaged. Derby Possibilities in Sight. To the New Derby it will be possible to add some of the best of last years two-ye-ar-ohls that had been omitted, including Mr. Hultonl Knutsford. and it is far from unlikely that he will carry the popular colors successfully for the second year in succession. We might also see Margarethal. Diadem, Roiibaix. Count Warbler, The Speaker. Fizz Rang. Leverrier. Smile and Colly Eyes included: whilst Lucknow. Athdara. Gay Crusader. Magpie-, Lord Bay, Telephus. Molly Desmond. Rroun Prince, Su ii. nor. Janiioek. Argument. Helford, Lord Archer, Polyacra. Polye hremj . Siindoi d. Bockcliff, Raymond. Dansellon. Tagamor. Minstrel. Winkle, Planet. Vallanee, Sir Desmond. Dresden. Grand Fbet. The Verderer, Kingston Black, Invincible, Gemsbok and Ho-Tei may renew their liability. This would be ele-ven above- the stipulated ni I i. but it is quite probable that there- will be two or more- i-ntrii-s from France- and some from A i;.-.i. when racing is once again going strong. There- is also .1. R. .Joel, who retained The Finch, a fine looking colt that never was trained here last year. John Dawson might even think enough of Trojaa to give him a chance, and Mr. Lambton has Hainaiilt. Seneschal and the- e-olt by Swynf.iril — Bokaal. the property of different owners to those naming Summoner or Diadem. So it appears that there cannot be any doubt about its filling, though the bringing in of Knutsford and Diadem might drive- some away. The arrival of Knutsford. Argument .lannock and Margarethal at Walters at the- end of last season greatly Strengthened our band, and it is said that during the week De- Mestre will arrive at Green l.ode. as I stated was probable long ago. With him would come Grand Fleet and By .lingo, and in more than one- important race will they play a prominent part. — "Warren" Hill in London Sporting Life.
