SPORTING INTELLIGENCE. ;—-♦ FORTHCOMING TRIENNIAL STEEPLECHASE. ■ ♦ —- Latest Training Notes ATTRACTIVE ENTRIES. The forthcoming Triennial Steeplechase, under the powerful auspices of the Urban DisErict Council Jockey Club, promises to be more interesting and successful than any of it; predccessords. This is due to the change in the programme made by the authorities this year and which affords a better opportunity for the intending competitors to show their powers. As heretofore, the races will be confined to a. one day meeting, and it is to be hopod that every effort will be made by the public to s;:pporl the authorities in securing the 30 best winners. The clerk of the course, Mr JUCi, Hopkins, has every thing in prepara- tion, and we anticipate keen contests though some of the "favourites" are reported unfit. There are ten handicaps this time instead of the deplorable five previously, and wo have no lies .tat:cn in predicting an unprecedented fight for supremacy. The various "stables" have presented a most animated scene during the last week, and the trainers seem to exert themselves to excess. Some of the horses are also reported to be "V coughing," but with special attention and care this defect will soon disappear. Of the entries received last week, several well-known "horses" have been reluctantly "scratched'' by their respective owners, and backers lament such a procedure. Still, there remains fcr six races a number of horses Exceeding the conditions laid down, and consequently racing is certain, whatever the climatic or any other conditions may be. Our correspondent has taken the liberty ot paying visits to the rendezvous of the candi. dates for the two first races, and being some- what surprised at the prospects, forwards a short account of the course, together with the doings of the "runners and their prospective chances."
