ENGLISH THREEYEAROLDS THRIVING I am pleased to say that all our leading three vcarolds us they will be In a few days are winter ¬ ing well so far and none more so than his majesty the kings champion of last season Friar Marcus At one time this year Friar Marcus gave me the idea that he was rather set ami that he would not grow or fill out as much as the others but he has really done both to such an abnormal extent that those who saw him last when he won the Middle Park Plate will see a different horse this spring If he goes on as he is doing now he will blossom into a grand threeyearold and there is no need to refer again to his splendid achievements during the past season Nor might he prove the only pebble on the beach amongst the royal theeyearolds for there are a few others that can go amongst them the Sun dridge colt Jungle Cock which is growing into a grand horse Marsh i know tried him a bit more than useful at one time this year but on account of the hard going did not really train him fit This was the proper thing to do with such a big colt which might easily turn out a tipto threeyearold threeyearoldKing King Priam too is wintering well and filling out in slack places for he was not quite a model of symmetry and Indeed he may never be mort than a line plain horse He can go however and OIK that has proved himself such a good twoyearold for so bltr a horse in such a dry seitsim may improve abnor ¬ mally as a threeyearold I shall not be at all sur ¬ prised to find that he has done so soPomnieni Pomnieni is another of our lot that shows mar veldis improvement and he too will have grown into a grand colt by the spring His trainer is keeping him on the move for If he did not he would become gross such a good doer is he in the stable Before Goodwood time Pommern began to show marked improvement which he continued right up to when he beat King Priam so easily for the Im ¬ perial Produce Stakes at Kempton Park in October I hold a stroii opinion that he Is a smashing gmid colt Al all events while we have the trio men ¬ tioned above to do battle for us we can look for ¬ ward to the coining seasons threeyearold classics with considerable confidence Our Own Corres ¬ pondent ii London Sportsman of December 2S
