numbers of the twenty-three runners was duly telejsTapbed, and shortly prior to the time set down the lot reached the post. The over anxiety of several of the light weights, however, protracted the start, among whom the riders of Brigg Boy and Warrior were conspicuous. At lubt Mr Id 'George, seeing an opportunity, lowered his signal, and sent them away to an admirable start, in ■which, they got away in line, with the exception of Warrior, who lost some ground. The first in action was C'aballero on the left of his horses, who came on with a slight advantage of Twine the Plaiden, and Brigg Boy in the centre, followed on the right by Rosy Cross, Trappist, Oxonian, and The Monk, and to these succeeded Herald, Mavis, Incense, Lancnster, Sunray, and Princess Bon Bon, at the head of the ruck. With little or no alteration in their relative positions, they were seen coming over the hill, when Twioe the Plaidnen drew clear of the horses on the left, followed by CabaHero, Brigg Boy, Rosy Cross, Trappist, Lolly pop, Herald, and The Monk in a.body, with Warrior, who had made up his lost ground, gradually closing with the leaders. When fai>ly in the dip Cabal]ero was seen to falter, haying broken a blood vessel, and was imme-iiately after stopped, and bis place Jwas taken by Lord Roseberry's colt, the latte<- heading Twine the Plaiden, who was beaten half way in the rails ; but he, in turn, gave way, on reaching the distance, t> The Monk, who was closely pressed hy Herald, Warrior, Rosy Cross, Trappist, and Lollypop, to whom the issue was now confined. Approaching the stand inclosure, Fagan, upon being challenged by Herald, struck bis horse, upon which The Monk curled up, and was immediately headed by Sir William Throckmorton's cojt, who retained his advantage to the, end,'and won very easily by a couple of lengths ; a similar distance separating second and third. Close up with the latter came Lollypop fourth, Rosy Cross being fifth, Trappist sixth, Mavis seventh. Jncense eighth, with Avontes and Twine the Plaiden side by side next, with the others pulling up and widely separated, the rear being brought up by Piccalilli and Queen's Own. Time, by Benson's chronograph, lmin. 193ecs. After the race Fagan and Johnson were reported for disobedience at the post, and appeared before the stewards an Wednesday, when the former was suspended for the week, and s the latter cautioned.

Winchilsea, in order to serve his stable companion, Charon, made play, followed past the stand by the latter and Hampton, these being clear of the other two. As they turned out of the straight Winchilsea had .inoreased: his lead to twenty lengths, with intervals of a couple of lengths intervening between all the others, Petrarch whipping in, Winchilsea continued to increase his lead at every stride, and as they passed the Craven starting post must have held a lead of at least one hundred and fifty yards. From this point, however, the interval was gradually diminished, though by the* time the mile-post was reached there was still a hundred yards between him and Charon, who was now joined by Hampton, but it was evident that his mission was accomplished, for as they approached the hill a mile from home the leader tired at every stride, and on entering the straight his command had become reduced to about ten lengths, Charon coming on second, no change having taken place in the position of the others. Down the hill Hampton took second place, and half a mile from home took up the running, followed by Charon and Skylark, Petrarch close np on the left lying next. Charon and Petrarch were hopelessly , beaten before reaching the distance, and Skylark took* second place, but although he challenged very resolutely he could never set on terms •with Hampton, who won in good style by a length: and a half ; Petrarch, being eased when pursuit was found to be hopeless, left Charon third, three lengths in rear of Lord ■palmouth's colt. Winchilsea was beaten off. Time, by Benson's chronograph, 4min. 56£ sees. Value of the stakes, £440.—" Sportsman." ' :
