Mr. Leo's colours will bo carried by Phoebe and "Surbiton;" the former of whom is top weight for tho cup; and will possibly not bo put into work again after she finishes the Bathurst oampaign. Surbiton, too, will very likely not represent Mr. Lee any more, as in all probability he will change I owners. The "green and straw" will still have a I strong team, seeing that after these two leave the I stables the string will consist of no fewer than j eight; and by no means a bad eight either; with the nameB of Barbarian, Barbollo, and The Pop among thom, besides a couple of very-'likely two year olds-one a great fine colt hy ' Now "Warrior, from Persiani.
