The Two Thousand Guineas is the first of the English classics, and its decision is always looked forward to with the greatest interest. The news of King Edward's victory with hie fine coit Minora will be hailed with the greatest satisfaction throughout tho Empire, especially an it looks like paving the way for another Royal Derby. As a two-year-ola Minora was eccn out on six occasions, but hie oniy win was attained in the Great Surrey Foal Stakes at Epaom. He finished second to Louvicrs in the Coventry Stakes at Ascot, and occupied a similar position behind Battleaxc in the July Stakes at Newmarket. He claims ft lot of valuable engagements this season, which include the Derby and Newmarket Stakes. Minora was bred by Mr W. Hull Walker, and is hold on lease by His Majesty. Phaleron has little in tho matter of two-year-old form to his credit, as out of foifr starts the best ho could do was to finish second to Princess de Galles in the Boscawen Stakes at Newmarket Louviers, the thirdplace filler, won the Zetland Plate at Doncaster. and the Coventry Stakes at Ascot, and was unplaced in four out of his other five two-year-old essays. Both Phaleron and Louviers aro engaged in the Derby, which will be decided on May 26th.
