Will he win the National" again? GOLDEN MILLER: The photograph was taken at Leicester when "The Miller" had little more than gentle exercise in disposing of five other moderate 'chasers. Miss Dorothy Paget's eight-year-old gelding will be seen out at Cheltenham, when, in the race for the Gold Cup, we shall see whether he is the champion of old."
