A. de Rothschild's eh or gr c Esquemeling, by Le Voleur— The Basilisk, 3yrs 3 Six starters. Won by a neck; five lengths between second and third. Winner bred by owner and trained by Frank Butters at Newmarket. •• For the second time in four starts since his arrival from America, last year's Kentucky Derby winner Omaha has met defeat at the hands of English horses. Omaha won his first two races, but in his third start ]- Was very narrowly beaten by Quashed in the Ascot Gold Cup. Taj Akbar, his victor yesterday, was the Aga Khan's elect for the Derby last month,-and finished second to his stablemate, Mahmoud, so that his success in the Princess of Wales's Stakes is fine tribute to the quality of the grey Derby winner. The international aspect of recent racing in England is further manifested by the fact that yesterday's third horse is French bred and owned.—"Rangatira."
