Glrutcne, CHAMPIONS AND THE CHAMPION PLATE. Of Monday's big race at I rentham Sir Bedivere, in the ‘ Post,' has this to s.<y ;■ Catnuhis, Ringform. and Cndecided wre withdrawn from IHo Champion Plato. ! lie number of starters (10) cr(iialled last year's round fur t'no race, and included Merry Pcc (Licit winner). At tiny pot Kkp»et and Reputation Mood beautifidly. but all the others gave a lot of trouble. Eventually Mr O'Connor got- thorn away on even terms. The held wan a tboiougbly representative one, including. a.-; it did, the best of the older division in commission, also the best three-year olds in the Dominion. Meiry Roc acted as pare maker, running the first half-mile m 5.1s isve. Along the hack she had Balboa and Fabrikotl as her nearest attendants, then First Flight and Reputation. Merry 800 was well clear at live six-furlong poM. where the others were strung out. Here Reputation had a lot of ground to make up, and started at the half-mile post to go through his held. Merry Roe teas still cutting out a solid puce on the raiiis, running the first six furlongs in Imm TfiSsec. She led into the straight, when Fabrikoff and Balboa wen? well beaten. At the distance Merry Roe was joined by First Flight, whose victory was proclaimed. Here- the favorite was being ridden out. Wilson having to draw out the wldp. IK: responded gamely, and. getting levl with First Flight a hundred yards from the post, won by three parts of a length, amidst great excitement. Expect wan about half a length behind First Flight. Balboa was fourth, and Merry Roe fifth. Hyettns, Kilrain, and Aloulu were the last to finish, in that order. It was the best contest fur the Champion Plate yet seen at Xrentham, also one of the best races --
cither weight-for-age or handicap—scon on the course. From a speculative point oS view it was good for the club, the sum or ±16.572 10s, which was a record for tire meeting, bciiiig invested on the race. Although defeated. Expect was by no means disgraced. He was conceding deputation 2ilb and First Flight 241! i. and to get where he did in such a fast-run race stamps him as the best horse over the distance—excepting the two three-year-olds—in the Dominion to-day. Had she had a race on the first day* Merry Roe. who had charge for about a mile, woup probably have finished in a place. Th. time put up by Reputation knocked 2|se. off Merry Roe’s record for the race. Taking into consideration the ground he hat. to make up in the last half-mile, none but a champion could have got the verdict, and Reputation proved himself u worthy relative to Elevation, i’rovovaliou, and |
Gravitation (other sons of btcpfeldt), who carried Mr Bid will's colors successfully. Such a stirring contest no doubt impressed the committee of the club us well as their patrons, and it would not be surprising if the winner of the Champion Plato next year receives l,OOOsovs.
