The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 79
The Toff and Ardenvhor have hardened considerably with the Tommies, while the hungry tribe have John Barleycorn, Colonel Soult, Wishful, and Mullingar all under double figures.
The "charts" show Bisogne, Chakwana, Downham, and Koesian as dangerous for the sprint races.
There is quite a lot of confusion in local sporting circles concerning the two Yaldhurst Auckland Cup candidates, The Toff and Wishful. Quite a lot of favour has been bestowed upon the latter, but both have been left in the race after the final payment. Both are now short in price. If the two start, those who got in early on Wishful may have regrets, though one never knows.
