The Free Rule ownership inquiry, which will open at the A.J.C. office this morning, is expected to last four to five days. The Inquiry, which will be conducted by A.J.C. stewards, will begin at 11 t.ta. TWO CITED BY A.J.C. Basis of the inquiry is a declaration by . well-known racing figure, Mr. George Francis, that he, and not trainer F. C. Shean, is the owner of Free Rule. In registrations and race books btiean is shown as owner. Both Mr.' Francis and Shean have been cited to appear at the inquiry. At the Sydney yearling sales on April 11, 1950, a chestnut colt by I Neptune (imp.) from Golden Rule was knocked down to F. Shean for 600 guineas. But the "Australasian Turf Register, accepted as authen tic by race officials, records R. S. White as the buyer of Bi)? Betting Likely For Mixed With one of the best fields since the inception of this class of race, the Second Ash- bury Mixed Stakes at , Canterbury to-morrow is likely to be marked by keen betting. Bookmakers, who said yesterday they had not proceeded to frame charts, forecast that -True Leader would be favourite for the event, but that betting would be open. The presence in the field ot True Leader, Bankbrook, and Triclinium each a last start winner in good company will govern the state of the market. True Leader has recovered fully from the effects of a nail in the hoof which inter fered with his preparation, His work at Victoria Park this. week is reported to have shown him an extremely fit horse. Bankbrook. who has had only two races for one win, also has galloped well, while triclinium, at Kosenui last Saturday, produced top form to beat tree Kule. Support is possible also foi Nobility, Iroquois, Midcrag. Hoi brook, and Regnator. The Flying. Handicap also is a race awaited by punters because of the presence in The field of Rosehill Winter Handicap winner Fox Gold. the colt Free Rule at 600 guineas. The stewards are bound to delve into this aspect of the sale. Mr. White, a Queenstander, a wcii-uiown in in.s.w. rac- mg as an owner and one of the most spectacular punt ers seen in ayaney tor years. It is understood that at today's inquiry either the stewards will ask for, or will be presented witn voluntarily, documentary evidence relat ing to ownership of Free Rule. This is said to include re ceipts, cheques, bank slate- ments, accounts, feed bills and other documents associated with fees involved in training a racehorse. It is expected also that Mr. Francis's personal evidence will be supported by evidence on affidavit, if required by the stewards. The evidence is expected to disclose that Mr. Francis's claim of ownership preceded the failure of Free Kule in the First Parramatta Mixed Stakes at Rosehill last Satur day. - In racing circles, outcome of the stewards' inquiry is awaited with keen interest be' cause of Free' Rule's Spring commitments. The colt has been entered for the Epsom Handicap (7-8), Caulfield Cup (7-5), and Melbourne Cup (7-4). Unlikely To Run It is most improbable the con win oc permuted io iuini anv engagement until the aues- . . - X- .V . . . " . tion ot disputed ownersnip nas been decided. The inquiry will be con ducted by a full panel of stewards Messrs. J. B. Dono-hoe (chairman). P. J.-Bartiey, J. Bourke, J, S. Killian. and H. H. Stokes. Mr. Francis said last niaht: "1 have placed the matter in the hands of the AJ.C. and beyond that I am unable to comment. Shean was not available for interview. Filly Set For Randwick Friendly Feeling will have her next start at Randwick on August 25. She won the three-year- old maiden (fillies) at Rosehill las: Saturday and the Tellers Handicap at Kanawick on Monday. She will not contest the Hobartville Stakes (7f), but will start in the Three-year-old Handicap (Im). Friendly Feeling put up one of the best performances this year to win at KanowicK last Monday. She was tailed otf last at the three furlongs, but finished with a withering burst to score running away. ine effort stamped a Derby prospect. Mexican boxer Enrique Morales' went straight into (raining yesterday. Date of his match with Australian bantamweight champion Jimmy Carruthers will be fixed at the week-end. It will depend on Morales's first boxing workout at Frank Kennedy's Auburn gymnasium on Sunday. Morales Is training at Auburn, and yesterday had some early morning roadwork before loosening up in the gymnasium in tne afternoon. Trainer Kennedy said last night: "Stadiums Ltd. has asked me to say how long it will take to get Morales ready for Carruthers, but I will want to see more of him before deciding. "Morales weighed 8-10 today, and he has to make the 8-6 limit for Carruthers. That may be difficult, with a time limit of two or three weeks." 'Sydney Stadium manager, Mr. Harry Miller, said last night: "We will decide on a definite fight date over this week-end. 'There is a possibility that the match will be staged on August 27, or a week later. "The dale will depend on how Morales works in his early training. ' Morales, a nuggety bantam weight, who will give away reach and height to (Jarru-them, looked fit in his gymnasium workout yesterday. He worked for six rounds two of shadow sparring, two punching the heavy hag, and anuincr iwu ui dipping. Kennedy's only comment was: "He is the strongest bantamweight I have seen Welterweights Bernie Hall and Jackie de Belin have been matched for Sydney Stadium next Monday mgnt. Shoes Cost 20 Fine . A fine of 20 was im posed by A.J.C. stewards etterday on trainer f. w. venndy. They found him guilty of carelessness over the snoeing of his horse, English Salt, at Kern bid orange races on Wednesday. They added thev were sat isfied that there was no dishonest intent by Kennedy. English Salt was an accep tor for the Flying Welter Handicap. He was brought to the mounting yard with ordinary shoes on, instead of racing plates. Ordinary shoes. weigh about 8oz, and plates about 2oz. The stewards ordered Ken nedy to have the shoes changed to plates. tnglisn salt was second lo Mexican Dawn, but was beaten by 15 lengths. Rose wall Beats Quist BRISBANE. Thursday. Sydney youngster Ken Rose- waii revealed splendid Davis Cup possibilities in defeating Adrian guist in tour sets at Milton to-day. Rosewall won. 4-6. 6-4.' 7-5. 6-1, in a semi-final of the Exhibition singles ttiie. The 16-year-old Sydney lad's superb backhand shot holes in Quist's defence. TACKLING TEST FOR CENTRE BY TOM GOODMAN South Sydney's inside-centre Kevin Woolfe was given some tackling practice at Redfern Oval yesterday afternoon to fit him for the Rugby League "match of the day" against St. George at the S.C.G. to-morrow. South's captain-coach, Jack Rayner, several times called upon Woolfe to tackle him. Ravner aimed to correct a tendency of Woolfe to allow an opponent to get ahead of him betore making tne tackle. He wanted to ensure that there should be no defect in defence against St. George's rugged centres, McCoy and Hawke. Youthful utility player Orel Hawick, who is to be half back to-morfow, set about working up combination with recently promoted five-eighth Norm spuiane. Jack Munn.

Parramatta selectors chose their team afresh after the committee of the club had held a special meetins. The committee wanted to discuss theories on the team s recent poor form.

The selectors in future will have more time for their deliberations. The selectors have omitted two players who are injured hooker Phil McCarroll and winger Rov Sweenev. From their week-end choice they have now discarded full back Bob Jones and front-row forward Bill Lovcll. The four players promoted are E. Evans, L. Ferguson. N. bpence. and M. Wilson.

By FRANK TIEHNEY ' Only one of three selectors retained his position In Northern Suburbs Rugby Union club's special ballot last night. The ballot, taken before layers trained, at North vdnev. resulted in Jimmy Hind and Geoff Nicholas failing to gain re-selection B. ("Nana") Halvorsen, who with Hind and Nicholas resigned during the week, was re-elected. Two new selectors are Jack Bromley and George Marshall. Bromley, lormer nrst-graoe team coach, is coach of the reserves. Marshall retired from the first-grade team this year. The special election fol lowed the resignation on Tuesday of Messrs. Halvor-len, Hind and Nicholas, after olayers naa expressed disa greement with their work during the season. Attitude of the players surprised many club officials wno pointed out mat iNortn first-arade team had lost only two matches this year, and the third-grade side appeared certain to reach the semifinals. Performance of Northern Suburbs this season is its best since 1939.

R.M.C. has defeated all challenging sides this season it has tne advantage ot con siderable experience as a team, and therefore should prove too strong for the G.P.S. side. G.P.S.
