Several jockeys had "passed the scale " before the decision of the Castle Selling Plate, and by the time that the telegraph board displayed thirty-two runners the majority were in the paddock. Petrarch aldne missed the parade, and when the others were halfway to the post he appeared in front of the Stand, and was inclined at the outset to cut some capers. But Archer quickly got on good terms with him, and after being led down the course, he turned as quiet as a sheep, and did not join Stamfordham and Decoy Duck in the bad behavior which mainly contributed to a delay of about half an hour. When the flag fell to an excellent start, Lord Rosebery's pair, L ; ris, Baumber, Footstep, and Sensation were placed on the right; in the middle were Vesuve, Midlothian, Rowiston, Sans Reproche, Poursuivant, and Lord Lincoln, and to the left of them figured Petrarch, Lollypop, Murrumbidgee, Bruce Stamfordham, Thorn, Sir Hugh, Lady Ronald, and Lord Berners. As soon as the field settled down Lord Lincoln took his colors to the fore, and was succeeded almost in the order given by Touchet, Bruce, Lady Ronald, Petrarch, and Lollypop, the second division consisting of Controversy, Poursuivant, Mohte Carlo, Rowiston, Thorn, Footstep, Baumber, Newport, Sir Hugh, and Lord Berners. Few of this lot suffered the grass to grow under their feet, and at the end of half-a-mile Touchet, who had gradually inclined towards the centre of the course, deprived Lord Lincoln of the command, and the pair came en clear of Bruce and Lady Ronald, while the next lot soon afterwards lost the company of Monte Carlo, Petrarch, Baumber, Sir Hugh, and Lord Berners. They were followed into Retirement by Lollypop and Thorn, and when Lord Lincoln returned to the head of aflairs a quarter of a mile from home, Touchet was not more than two or three lengths in front of his stable companion, Controversy, and between them were Bruce, Poursuivant, Footstep, Rowlston, and Lady Ronald. To these the issue had reduced itself, and when Controversy and Lady Ronald hung out eigaals of distress below the distance, Bruce was to all appearance pulling over Lord Lincoln and Touchet. The weight nevertheless told upon him when Footstep suddenly rushed to the head of affairs, and in the revolution th*t now occurred Poursuivant drew into second place from Lord Lincoln, Bruce, Touchet, and Rowiston. No sooner was his chance extinguished than Wood ceased to persevere upon Bruce, and with a match between Footstep and Poarsnivant from the corner of the Stand, the latter s game effort to the end proved of ao avail, Snd although in the last fifty yards he threatened Footstep very much her pilot with plenty of strength, and won an exciting xace by an neck. Four lengths from the pair Lord Lincoln saved the place money by a couple of lengths from Touchet, with 'Rowiston fifth, Bruce .?ixth, Newport seventh, Lady Ronald eighth, San? Reproche ninth, Vesuve tenth, Petrarch eleventh, liris twelfth, and Croupier thirteenth, ffuard heing comprised of Controversy, Glyn, Lollypop, Skot&a, Adamite, and Decoy Duck.
