Here, after taking the brush, Blackwood fell. The horse came right over the running track fence, leaving his rider outside. Picking himself up, however, Welsh scrambled through, got his horse, remounted, and covering the jumps between, went off m pursuit of the other three, who by this time had nearly reached the sod wall. This was negotiated correctly by all, as was the jump at the back of the course. At the north corner all the three leaders were about together and at the last jump Beaufort fell, leaving the race to be ridden out by Glen and Glennn. The Mount Hutt horse had it well m hand, and when asked showed a fair turn ■of foot, GJentui failing, under the whip, I to get on level terms with him, and Glen ran m a winner by three-quarters of a length. Beaufort finished, but Blackwood didn't.
