Wagering was. pretty brisk at Moorefield on Saturday, but followers of favourites fared badly, for five of the six failed to act up to expectations. The exception was Edna May, who was sent out an even-money favourite for the Flying Handicap, and she never left the Issuo in doubt. The daughter of imported play- bill and Puritan is engaged in the A..T.C. Ep- som Handicap with the minimum weight.
The Hurdle Race, at Moorefield on Saturday attracted only seven out of a possible 14 to the post. Auckland, a gelding hailing from Donovan's stable, was the popular selection, with St. Leonard next fancied. The favourite and Hotstuff were together in front until they reached the hurdle at the lower bend in the second round, then the former hit hard, and lost his place, leaving Hotstuff in com- mand from St. Leonard and the favourite, but St. Leonard soon had the measure of Hot
stuff, who, as they raced up hill faded out1 of the fray, and tho SeopoB mare Sulu chased St. Leonard home at a respectful distance. The Gaulus gelding, Uba, shaped very badly, and waa just turning into the borne stretch as the winner passed the post.

The' Orzil colt Gundaroo was the popular pick for tho Two-year-old Handicap at Moore- field on Saturday in a field of 14, and the next fancied was Vauntlc, who ran the favourite very close in tho market quotations; while the only others to receivo confident support were the Multiform lilly Sestos, and Flavigny, Sestos, who took charge soon after the start, out out the work to the home turn, where Flavigny, who had escorted her most of the way, dashed up on the rails, and coming on scored an easy win from the Holbrook Olly Hine, while the favourite, wHo ran prominently all the way, had to be content with third place, and Vauntlc never gave her supporters the slightest hope. Flavigny, who was purchased "as a yearling by the sportsman who races as
"Mr. A. Fuller," for ÏS0 guineas, is by !m "? ported Flavus from Elly, by Wallace from * Elsio (imp.), by St. Simon-a stout pedi-

The largest field of the afternoon at Moore- field on Saturday left tho paddock for the Kogarah Stakes, which was regarded as pretty open, but at the close of business there was most money for the Brttkpan colt Ore Pan, the next fancied being the Simmer filly Sileno, a full sister to Raeburn, while Ayrbrook, Lord Hybla, and Norley were the best sup- ported of the others. Sennawood, a South Coast district representative, essayed to win from end to end, but Ayrbrook, who had paged her from tho start, wiu upsides with her at the bend, shook her off at the distance, and scored pretty comfortably from Lord Hybla. The winner was bred at the Oakleigh Stud by Mr. James Thompson, and is by Ayrbrook from The Brook, by Cllevedca from Barbara, by Barbarian (son of Sir Hercules).
The Hobnrtvllle-bred gelding Myall Prince,
by imported Simmer irom Urambllla, by Sweet, William from Myall Quoin, by Goldsbrougb, ' won tho Third-class Plato at Helena Vaia i
(W.A.) on Saturday. j
The Gaulus gelding Volta was regarded as ¡ tho best of the nine contestants that took \
the track for the Moorefield Handicap on Saturday, with Kelso's recent purchase, Wha Ilae, next in domnnd, while Aragain and the Imported maro Very Canny also received fair support. Wood Queen, a visitor from the South Coast district, made the early running, but melted out of it after passing the half-
mile post, where Volta and Emerald Isle ¡
tackled her. Wha Hao joined the leadors at the bend, where Aragain also made a for- ward moro, and Emerald Isle retiring at tho turn, Volta was left in charge, pursued by Wha Hao and Aragain. Inside the distance
Aragain put in his claim, and, finishing reso- ; ' liitely, the son of Niagara got up in time to |
hecure victory by a narrow margin from the i lavourlto. It Is nearly a year and a halt ; siuco Aragain troubled the judge In a similar ; ? ace on tho same track, so he has not won
out of his turn.
At Moorefield on Saturday the Simmer horse Simonldes was sent out a warm favourite for tho Bexley Handicap in a Hold that was one short of a dozen, the next fancied being the . Ruenalf gelding Larry, while Diabolo nnd
Ayi brook had quite a number of friends. The paco from the start was made by Ayrbrook and Larry, on terms, and they woro still to- gether at tho distance, whore Diabolo, who had held a good position all tho way, put In an appearance, and wearing them down in attractive style won an exciting race by half A a length from Ayrbrook and Larry, who wore
separated by a very narrow margin. The winner, who halls from the Wagga district, is by imported Gambol from Wicket, by . Oudois from Cricket, by Stationer, and was
brod al the Berry Jerry Stud.

his debut in the Coventry Stakes at the Ascot Juno Mooting, but though ho is described as 7 being a well-grown youngster, and showing . moro quality than his illustrious sister, ho was
not fancied by backers,, and went out in the 20 to 1 division. He scored handsomely, how- ever, and as his engagements include next year's Derby ho will bo certain to havo a big army of supporters should ho bo fit and well

During the week ended June 19 the Sydney lad Frank Wootton won five races, and filled minor situations on several occasions. He was rather unfortunate on the opening day of tho Gatwick meeting to juht suffer defoat in three races, but the second day he piloted Fllpperty to victory in the Hollybush Selling Plato, and Valens in tho Home-bred Three-year-old Cup. That ovening he went ncioss the Channel, and on the following day ho hod the mount on M E Voil-Picard's Pierre Benito in the French Derby,' but did not got a place.

Tho Total-bred colt Sir Edwin, who won the Federation Handicap at Morphettville (S.A.) on Saturday, is engaged in the S.A.J.C. Derby, and the sporting scribe of the "Register" wrltes'of tho performance as under:-"At one time it looked as If the coming Derby would prove a tamo affair. After Saturday's rac e lng, howovor, there is promise of an interest-
ing ovont among the three-year-olds. For " the first time this season the two-year-olds
woro soen over a mile of ground in the Fede- ration Handicap. Permain Is a plain little chap, but ho is .able, It is claimed, to stay. On Saturday ho was made favourite, but it carno as a surprise to find that Silver Morn was In almost as much demand as the top weight. The running does not settle the Derby, but it Bhows that event Is still open. Permain had got on holding ground, and it ' appeared that Llddlo kept him too far out of
his ground In tho early stngos. When he did open him up Mr. Slmms's gelding ran fast. Rounding Into the straight ho seemed to havo a chance, but at the pickets John Flynn slip pod tho good-looking Sir Edwin upon the rails, and tho big colt cantered away from a tired field. Sir Edwin, who is coming to form, put up rather an attractive performance, although the tlroo, lia 48Ja, Is a bit against him. Still
