The Buperioriby of this year's three years oyer bheir predecessora w«, however, conclusively showni by the iaci that though Sir Visbo, /irkconnel, Raconteur, Laveno, Troon and The Lombard were all tnonj?bt fairly good amnuls «n 1895, none of them were oon«dered to have a chance with SO.

Regreb, who atarted at) 7 to 4, you will obaerve, had (not having won a big race) an immense pull in the weights, bubthia would hardly have made her favourite, save for her recent trial with Shaddock. In thia, report declared, the son of Farewell gave the Aacob winner 141b and a beating, which aeemed good enough for anything. Anyhow, tho Kingeclere people were very confident, and Porter had his extreme wager of £50 on. Strange to say, Regreb failed to abay. The field ran fairly together to the dip, where Mr McCalmont's ■ pair, Butterfly and Kirkconnel, were all in trouble, and Morny Cannon began to set about Regreb, who was challenged by Sb. Frnsquin and Persimmon, with Troon drawing up fourth. The race waa thus early left bo the leaders, of whom Regret gave way half way up the hill and Sb Frnsquin forged ahead challenged by Persimmon. Ib was a ding-tiong aeb-to between the pair for, the last 150 yards, but despite a most resolute effort on the part oi the Derby winner the 31b penalty told ibs tale. He could never quite geb on terms wibh Sb. Frueqnin, who amidsfe a most enthusiastic burst of cheering passed the poat half a-length ia fronb, while Regret, who picked up a bit of ground ab bhe finish, waa beaten a similar distance for second place. Troon, a neck behind the Kingsclere colb, was placed fourth, Sir Viabo fifth, The Lombard sixth. Raconteur seventh, Laveno eighth and Kirkconnel lasb. Value of bhe stakes, £9,005.
