SOME JUMPING PROSPECTS IN ENGLAND Hcrses Which May Win Fame in Meetings of This Winter in Cross -Country Baring. According to all accounts, there will be no lack of vitality in the National Hunt sport during the coming season, and from what I hear racing is likely to show considerable improvement over the past few years, which is encouraging. Among the horses trained at Newmarket likely to lie seen "over the sticks" or across country are Crosstree and Seneschal, and Major liuatty may have some jumpers at Bedford Cottage, among them Brigadier General, which appears to have developed a villianous temper. Recently he gave his trainer a nasty experience when he savaged him. lacerating the muscles arid inflicting other painful injuries to his right shoulder, but the major expects to "get his own baek" when he has Brigadier properly at work over timber. Colling may have a jumper or two, though he has lo.-tt n promising chance with the departure of Tinspear, which was sold to A. Portman for 800 gUlneas. Mr. Winans usually has a few jumpers with Joseph Cannon, and we may see Race Rock arid the veteran Leeson Park at it again before long,, with "Boxer" Cannon in the saddle, as it is fair to expect that it will not be long before he is released from military service. R. Day has Ayhsley and others, though he has lost a useful one In Nubian, which has gone to F. A. Brown, and Buzz Off and Starr have also been drafted out of the stable Anrfh and Chicken Pie may run for Mr. Rudd, and among those of Leaders horses Morning Star, Barrette and Cistern have already been having some hurdle practice, all shaping in businesslike style. Alfred Sadler Stockbridge House is an old hand at the sport and may find some winners among Old Gold, Bucephalus, Skager Rack, Dornoch and Bidston, and the Fitzroy House Stable Is pretty sure to 1k represented by Waterbed. if iie stands training; Regal, Square Cut, Armngeddon, Bath and possibly Royal Bucks.
