The work on Randwick this morning was almost of a purely sensational nature, and everything that put in an ap- pearance did really serviceable work. The following are the principal items : — Mabel, the up-country mare, was sent what is known as "fair dinkum" over two miles, of course outside the hurdles, in 3min 49sec, and this eclipses
anything yet done this season. A rush was then made on to her for the Metrop., and she was well supported both right out and in doubles. Kinsman got over 1¾ mile in 3min 37½sec, which was also a good gallop, and Secundus ran tho Metro- politan distance in 3min 54sec. Lord Burghley, with a lot over his Metropolitan weight, put in two miles in 8min 53sec, and, considering all things, there can be nothing sur- prising in his being well supported. Nellie again pleased the onlookers by running with ease over a mile and a quar- ter in 2min 25¼sec, and Strathearn, at the end of twice round, put in also a fast mile and a quartor in 2min 25¼sec. Get Back has been scratched for all the A.J.C. engage- ments.
