APRIL THE FIFTH WINS
RUN RESERVED TILL LAST
FAVOTJKITE UNPLACED United Press. Association—By Electric Telegraph—Copyright. (Eeceived 2nd June, 9 a.m.) LONDON, Ist June. Yet another severe defeat was placed against the names of Derby favourites when Orwell, who had been the public idol for the last twelve months, was thoroughly well trounced and beaten into ninth place in this year's " blue riband" contest, run on the second day or the Epsom Meeting to-day. The winner was Mr. T. Walls's brown colt April the Fifth, who a couple of months ago was at forlorn odds, but who came strongly into the market a fortnight or so back. The result was:— DEKBY STAKES, of 100 soys each, with 3000 soys added; for three-year-old colts and fillies; colts 9.0, fillies 8.9; about one mile and a half. Mr. T. Walk's br c April the Fifth, by Craig an Eran—Sold Again, 9.0 (F. Lane) 1 H.H, the Aga Khan's b c Dastur, by Solario—Friar's Daughter, 9.0 (M. Beary) 2 Lord Eosebery's be. Miracle, by Manna—-Brodick Bay, 9.0 (H.

A. Dewar, the owner ,of last year's winner, Cameroriian. Shortly after the start of the race Coekpen, Bacchus, and Miracle ■ were most prominent, but a little- further on Portofino went up to the front and led down the hUI from Firdaussi, Miracle, Spenser, and Dastur. Portofino was still ahead at Tattenham Corner, but a quarter of a mile from home dropped back beaten.' Dastur then forged ahead, but April the Fifth came with a strong run over the last furlong and overhauled Dastur in a great race to score by threeparts of a length. Miracle was only a short head away third, with Boyal Dancer and Firdaussi next. Orwell was always prominent,- but ran disappointingly, and never threatened danger, finishing about ninth.
