Horses weighted in the eight stone division have the best average of wins In the Caulfleld cup, and Maple looks the best of this division. Streplion's victory in tho Herbert Power Stakes makes him look a hard colt to pass In the Derby, and this win justifies the faith his stable had In lacking the colt for the Melbourne Cup. .Maple's second in the Herbert Power Stakes makes her look a good chance In the Csulfleld Cup, In which she has 8.7. .Maple was a consistent mare in her ' own country, and has been given every chance to get used to the Vic torian climate. she looks like being one of the hardest for Gothic to beat.
