The heavy rain which fell last night has not affected the course appreciably. The thick mist in the city prevented many people going out in the belief that the day would turn out wet, but on arrival at the course a strong wind was blowing, and the rain cloudß rapidly vanished. To-day's proceedings are regarded as a series of duels, as in all the principal races the finishes are reduced to two, whom the publio are supporting very evenly. In the Juvenile Stakes, Moraine (ridden by Derrett) had the call in the betting, on account of the difference in weight; but his victory was more due to the excellent start he got. Pygmalion got on terms with him near the stand, but the Yaldhurst colt came gamely under the whip and won, all out, by a length. Through the defection of Musk Deer the Oaks was reduced to a display of the speedy daughters of Musket and Apremont. The success of the yellow jacket during the meeting tempted many lucky backers to plunge on Derrett's mount; but those who remembered how gamely last year's Welcome winner finished yesterday in the Derby, and who averred but for physical infirmity she must have stretched the neck of Scots Grey, ucver tired of accepting the slight shade of odds readily available. There was some delay at the post owing to the fraetiousness of Cynisca, but when the flag fell Rose Argent had a decided lead, attended by Alsace, Cynisca being third. Alsace was taken in front after passing the stand, and soon placed a clear gap of twenty lengths between her and tho field. At half a mile she still held a decided lead, but at the mile had come back to them, Rose Argent lying second, and Cynisca racing alongside the latter. At the turn for home the favorite was unmistakeably beaten, and Cynisca soon drew away from her stable companion, and won easily by a clear length ; Rose Argent three lengths away; then Cypriote, with Charming last. The official time was 2min 44£ sec, but private watches made it a Becond quicker. Appended are the results:—

Scots Grey jumped off with a clear two lengths' lead of Tirailleur, Dudu a length behind the latter. For two-thirds of the distance the grey maintained a slight advantage, but when it came to real racing it was atea that Tirailleur had the mastery. Half way up the straight Brown had to pnll out the whip to the grey, who came with great gameneas under punishment, but Collelo, sitting perfectly still, landed Tirailleur a. winner by three parts of a length, and something in hand. The mare was eight lengths away. The win was very popular with the public and with Worth Island sportsmen, who never wavered hi allegiance to their champion.
