AN EXCITING FINISH. WHAT THE CRITICS SAW Press Association—By Telegraph—Copyright'. SYDNEY, Novomlier .]. (Received November A, at 10.45 a.m.) Tho ' Herald/ describing the Cup. says: The held were despatched in line, which was lirsfc broken by Ktibulus. Ere- two furlougs had boon traversed Posinatus was in front and set the pace to the judge's box, where Cagou was in command, well clear of Giru, Indiscretion, nnd St. Carwyno. Passing tho bridge Carlita and Sir Ahvynton improved their positions, and Cagou had shot his bolt. Rattling along the back stretch Sir Alwyriton and Giru went ahead, Kingsbtirgh catching the pair at the abattoirs, with Fosinntus, Aloottbria, and Untie Sam closo up. Sir Alwyuton led to tho turn, v.ith Kingsburgh, Moonbria, Uncle Rain, and St. Curivyne moving up to his heels. At tho distance the victory of Sir Ahvynton and Kingsburgh was proclaimed by their respective supporters. Kingsburgh drew lovcl_ at the half-distance, and passed iho judge's box n neck to the good, amidst great excitement. Tho threemost fancied horses, St. Carnyne, Ulva's Isle, and Undo Sam finished in that order behind the placed horses. Tho winner justified his breeding, scoring in good style, 'iho battle was foujdif. to tho end, and established a record.
Tho 'Telegraph' says: Though hcateii, St. Carwyno and Ulva's Isle acquitted themselves well. The latter must have come at a terrific rate to Zft so close at the finish, seeing that lie was the last of a long line to leave the straight. St. Carwyno tired in tho run home. In characteristic fashion Uncle Sam began slowly, and was soon badly placed. Posinatus lusted in front until the pace was mado in real onrnest. when ho shortened his stride. Lilyvot! nnd >lathlea were always in difficulties. It, was never possible to find St. Spar-a, Sylvnnmoro, or Owen }'oe in Ihe leading division. Among tho surprises of tho race was Moonbria. who, «>n on to ring the straight, looked more dangerous than any other. Carlita failed to stay tin; distance.
