RONDON, Eng., June 2.— Aga Khans Diophon has replaced Lord Woolavingtons Tom Pinch as future favorite for the Epsom Derby, which will be decided at Epsom Downs, Wednesday. In the latest quotations! Diophon is 6 to 1 while Tom Pinch is at 7 to 1. St, Germans is at 10 to 1 ; Bejamin Irishs Dawson City at 100 to 9 ; Bright Night at 100 to 9 ; Sansovino at 100 to 8 ; Parmenio, Hurstwood and Polyphontes at 25 to 1. The weather is wet and stormy and pleas- ant conditions can hardly be expected for the big event from present indications. In spite I of this a record crowd is expected, as there | are a great many foreign visitors here for the British Empire exhibition at Wembley who will take advantage of the opportunity to see Englands biggest race. Beary will have the mount on Woodend in the Derby; Beasley will ride Tom Pinch and Donoghue Defiance.
