KINGS PLATERS NEAR RACING FORM Mondaine Most Favored for Labor Day Event, hut Race Seems to Bo Most Open One. MONTREAL, Que., August 25. Horses that will be sent to the post in the renewal of the Kings Plate at Blue Bonnets on Labor Day arc being given daily work-outs. The running of the Plate this year will be a more open affair than for several years, as there is no outstanding favorite and no recent races to get a line on any of the stnrters. The only one on which any line is had is Maladroit, winner of the Provincial Nursery as a two-year-old last autumn. Many of the eligibles have made good trials and are at the top of their form. All that they will require between now and the day of the race will be enough to keep them on edge. The best recent work-out was that done by Mondaine, owned by Donat Raymond, who owns Maladroit. Mondaine showed a good trial a year ago and Friday morning worked a mile with her weight up in 1:43. She was sent on the mile and an eighth, pulling up in 1:57. St. Hilairc is another which made a good trial. St. Hilairo was sent the full distance of the Plate, a mile and a quarter, working it in 2:15. She did not have her weight up, but the work was impressive. The Lost Bird, which was at one time owned by Dr. Charles McEachran and now running in the colors of R. Williams, worked a mile and a quarter in 2:15, The Lost Bird was all out at the finish. Dix Rogers was sent a mile in easy fashion in 1:45, which gives him a chance with the best of them. Adomai worked the Plate distance in 2:17, while Adorock worked the mile and a quarter in 2:15,-all out at. the finish. Maladroit, which wili run with Mondaine, is now at Saratoga, where he is being trained. Maladroit is credited with some fast trials and should give a good account of himself. . :IIe is said to have worked a mile with more than his weight up over the Saratoga course in 1:43. Last autumn at Pim-lico this colt worked three-quarters of a mile in 1:15 easily. St. Hilairo will carry the colors of Col. A. Hamilton Gault, C. M. G., in the Plate race. I .
