V.R.C. DERBY.

WHAT THE CRITICS SAY

Press Association—By Telegraph—Copyright. •SYDNEY, November 2. (Received .November 2, at 9.55 a.rn.)

The ‘Herald.’ describing tho Victorian Derby, says: “ Woorak was sent to the front early in the race, and made, a-solid pace from Mountain Knight and Traquette. At the river stretch Cariita movod up, and was sixth at the Abattoirs, Woorak still leading. Mountain Knight was already showing signals of distress, and he lost his place at tho sheds. Tho pace was beginning to tell on Woorak also. Entering the homo stretch, Cariita cut him down. Giru, Traquette, and Aristaeus then went on in hot pursuit, but Cariita answered the final question in grand stylo. Mountain Knight was the tenth to finish. The surprise of the race was tho position (second) gained by Aristaeus. No excuse can be made for the failure of Woorak, who was allowed to sail along .in front as long as ho was able. Mountain Knight was played out at tho end of a fnile.”

The ‘ TJelegraph ’ describes the result of the Derby as the surprise of the season. “ Woorak was in front on leaving the straight, And, going on at racing pace, had six lengths’ lead at nine furlongs, with Mountain Knight next, and the others tailed off. Woorak soon after began to •come back to the field. When Cariita headed him two furlongs from home a shout announced that Woorak had shot hia bolt; ao had Mountain Knight. Cariita won easily. Aristaeus worried Giru out of Second place, three-quarters of a length separating them. Traquette, Woorak, and Indiscretion followed, locked together.”
