Tartar got over a mile and a-half in excellent style, his time being 2min SOiJsec. Carrington and Tinlander went two miles strongly, and Melos had a five furlongs spurt, which he covered comfortably in lmin Bsec. Correze had a similar gallop, but finished up all abroad. Abercorn beat Dreadnought over six furlongs in lmin 23soc. Prelude and Utter only went three furlongs, their time for this short spin being 39isec. Late last night bookmakers were loud in their offers to take 600 to 400 about Dreadnought missing the Derby.
