HORSE FORM. By TOM ELLIS, i Elimination of Hlvals of Talking and Gold Rod. Horses willi Chances Against Mala and Silver Standard in (he Metrop. A Wet Weather Epsom Possibility. Since Spring racing began it has been simply a case of elimination of the pros pecus ot rivals to Talking and Gold Bod -Silver Rise, Gay Chou, King's Head, Tuckiar. Red Tnespian and Golden Chance, all of which were early fancied, liave fallen by the wayside. Tnese leave Talking and Gold Rod apparently in full possession oi tl« battle-ground. Pntile Prattle, too, failed on Saturday nt the Hawkesbury meeting at Rcsehill.; but I won't discard him for that failure. I do not prophesy that he has a leally good chance of overthrowing the cham pions, except if anything siajuJd break against them by accident; but his cnance is certainly bitter than Satur day's race demonstrated. I do not regard Prittle Prattle as a sprinter after he has had too many early runs in any season's racing. He lases tile brilliance necessary...
