SPORTING. (Notes by "Churinga.") [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder — 16 March 1918
8POBT3M6. (Notes >by "Churinga.") The chief feature about tlic racing at Cheltenham .to-day will be the dis play of the Oakbank candidates. His tory has shown that the form at this particular Port meeting has been ai capital guide for Oakbank. On one! occasion Concave won the Hurdle Race, and followed up with a similar success at Oakbank, but he owed that victory wholly and solely to the vig orous riding of the late Harry Holmes. He had a big bridge to gap between the leader. Portlight, and a less ener getic man than Holmes would, have lost, as he was at Concave for fully four furlongs. Sedan won the Canal Welter and then took the Oakbank Cup, but by right that event should have gone to. Rocky Glen. It was the occasion of that bungled up start. Mies Neckers gat showed sufficient form in the Cove Handicap to indicate that the Hills Railway Handicap was good business for her, and she won again last_year. It would not be a bit surprising to' know that another Hills Railway had ibeen...
