SPORTING INTELLIGENCE

THE O.J.C. MEETING.

At Ricearton on Saturday the Avon Welter proved the soft .thing expected for Marino (Or.?).' who, getting-away well, kept in front all the time, and defeated Remorße (7.12) by two lengths, Defiant (9.10) being only a neck away from the Ashburton horae. The seven furlongs were.done in lmin29 3 siec, and the..winner returned his backers £4 5j 6d. ■ ' ° -

The Steeplechase, of three miles, was one of the prettiest races of its kind seen since the memorable battle over the same course between Norton and Waterbury. Violence was installed a warm favorite, but a good many pinned their faith to Clarence, believing that if he would only stand up that he would win comfortably. In one respect their judgment was sound. The son of Tekoa, capitally ridden by Free Holmes, fenced beautifully, never •making the semblance of a mistake. From a good start Clarence went to the front, and maintained a strong lead till the top turn was reached, when the favorito went up and soon reduced the gap. They breasted the last hurdle at the same moment, but onca on the flat it was seen that Clarence had no show with the North Islander, who won comfortably by nearly two lengths, Coastguard third twenty lengths away. Roslyn got rid of his rider at the fence beyond Cutts's, and Nat fell at the double opposite I the stand, but his rider (Cotton) was not seriously hurt. Time, Gmin 23 3 ssec. Dividend, £2 19i od.

The Electric Plate, four furlongs, was the Juvenile Plate all over again. The two representatives of tho yellow jacket were the mostfancied,but Diunt (8 2)and Goldleaf (7.11) hud astrong following Gold Medallist(B 2), with Derrett up, had a slight call over the Welcome Stakes winner; while Vedette j (8 11) found more support than Blazer (7.13). When the tapes wero released Blazer, whe is a splendid beginner, placed a couple of lengths' advantage between himself and Daunt, after whom came Goldleaf and Bracelet, Mr Stead's pair being the last but one to leave the mark. At the distance . Derrett made a btroug run, and though Gold Medallist responded to his every call he could not get up to the Dunedin colt., who wou all out by half a lmgth, Goldleaf threo lengths away, beating Daunt by a neck, aud Conqueror finishing fifth just in front of Vedette. The record time of 46 3-5 jec was Bet up by the winner, who paid his backers the nice dividend of £l2 16a 6d. Considering that Blazer has the reputation of being able to accomplish the four furlongs in 47sec with comfort, it is surprising that he was so little fancied, but the stable and his connections profited considerably by his victory. The Farewell, of one mile,, prod need seven nominations, all crying content but Sir Launcclot (8 2). Skirmisher (8 8) was at once picked on, but he ran an arrant coward. He got away well, and was in a good position for half a mile, but then turned it up. There was a fine finish between Vedette (8 5) and Sequin (7 0), but it might have been much closer had the Dunedin filly been better ridden. She was " all over the shop," yet ran Vedette to half a length in the respectable time of lmin 43 l-s.ee. The winner paid £5 16i 6J.
