Title or Caption"Three for the election stakes. BROKEN PROMISES by Necessity out of Dynamic Government. SHIPSHADE TED by Enoch Overboard out of Law and Order. FEATHER YOUR NEST by Wage Spiral out of Union Demands."
Published captions written after names under each picture from left:- BROKEN PROMISES Election stakes chances looking slightly better after recent canter in Scotland. Head Lad Brown says 'We've got a plan and that's straight from the horses mouth - it's just getting the timing right for his big race! Trainer Jenkins says 'If my April forecast is right, he should be fit for the June or October stakes, but if the going looks hard, it might be months sooner than weeks.'" FEATHER YOUR NEST "Blinkered - could cause consternation by balking favourite. Head lad, Clive Jenkins, says 'Whatever the result, we're going to win, and if anyone thinks different let them bloody well try! Greatest danger, Shipshape Ted. At last meeting BROKEN PROMISES didn't get a place. SHIPSHAPE TED "Comes again and now and again in spite of fluctuating odds. Backers say it should be plain sailing in election stakes after his Australian triumph. Easily led to water. Head lad, Maudling, says 'He's a good honest performer.' Trainer Hogg says 'When he gets the bit between his teeth they'll be no holding him.'"
