After experiencing several reverses this season, owing to stress of weather and other causes, the Haydock Park executive have at last been able to bring off a fixture in something like a satisfactory manner. The programme issued for the meeting which was commenced to-day was a formidable one, but, thanks to the lateness of the season, no difficulty was experienced in filling all the stakes; the important Spring Cup, for 64 all-ages, in which nearly all the cracks are engaged, receiving its full complement of entries.
The weather broke rather unfavourable this morning, and a heavy rain which fell about the commencement of the proceedings rendered matters the reverse of pleasant. The attendance was only moderate. The coursing to-day took place on the Home field, where the hares ran very stoutly, and some grand trials were witnessed. In the Haydock Spring Cup Emperor effected a genuine surprise by his easy defeat of Mechanic,
and Missing Link ran a very smart course against Mercer; and Phantom II, displayed all his old fire. Miss Jemison led Hand-in-Hand much further than was expected, Mr. Hornby's old bitch showing none of her wonted form. Madeline, after leading Christmas Day many lengths, allowed the latter little chance, as she finished a short trial with the kill. Odds of 3 to 1 were laid on Minnie Palmer, on of Mr. Miller's Misterton kennel, against Cranborne, although she has not shown any form to warrant this confidence. Cranborne, however, not only led her, but gave here a decisive beating into the bargain.
Long odds were laid on Clamour, who is favourite for the Stakes, against Alec Loughlin; but Mr. Crosse's representative hardly went in his usual good style, and Alec Loughlin was contesting the course well until an unlucky fall put him out of count. Let Go ran a smart course against Phoebus, and Sourcerer displayed both pace and cleverness against Crosseus. The running in the Puppy Stakes does not call for extended comment, but we may say it was a very near thing between Bock and Lovelace in the Earlstown Stakes, the first-named
rather unexpectedly getting the verdict. Rich and Rare, Aros, Birkdale, and Rockview all ran their courses in good style, and the same may be said in regard to the performances of Pomeroy, Bargoyne, and Powder Monkey in the Ashton Stakes. [Webmaster's emphasis.]|
