GRAND NATIONAL ELIGIBLES Fifty-One Still Remain as Probable Starters in Worlds Most Famous Steeplechase. Special Correspondence. LONDON, England The field for the Grand National Steeplechase at Aintree, Liverpool, March 18 next, was reduced to fifty-one probable starters by the declaration of seven eligibles on the recent acceptance date. There will be a final acceptance March 8, and it is expected that there will be several withdrawals. The non-accepters are Mrs. H. M. Hol-lins Colliery Band, W."M. G. Singers Kaku-shin, Miss Dorothy Pagets Solanum, H. B. Brands All Over, Maj. A. W. Huntingtons D D B, Mrs. R. D. Cohens Relation and Capt. R. E. Sassoons ill-starred West Indies, which met with a fatal accident on the day the weights for the Grand National were announced. Of the non-starters, Kakushin is American owned. As Mr. Singer has no other candidate his colors will not be seen in the cross-country classic, but his trainer, Frank Hartigan, still has W. H. Midwoods Shaun Goilin, winner in 1930, to point for the event. Hartigan has not as yet engaged a rider for Shaun Goilin, but he denies the report that L. Niaudot, the French jockey who finished fourth on Rhyticere in the last Grand National, will have the mount.
