ENGLISH RACING. Though we have had the news by cablegram of the winners of the great three old races, still, the following epitome of their performances this spring may be interesting to some, as shewing the great difference between their two and three-year-old form. Pilgrimage certainly shewed good form at the latter end of last season, but she was knocked down at Mr. Gerard's sale for £170, and it was then remarked that she made her full value. Septon ran pretty fairly once, at Stockbridge, when he divided Redning and Attalus for the Hurstbourne Stakes; his other performances were bad. Thurio's career was little above plating form. His time in the Newmarket Handicap appears slow, but it must be borne in mind that the last mile and ahalf of the Beacon Course is the severest in England. ' Pilgrimage's time is also far from' good, so the inference must bo that the three-year-olds of tho season are moderate, and that seems to be " Bley's" opinion. CRAVEN" MEETING, NEWMARKET. Newmarket Handicap of 25050v5.; lOsovs. forfeit; 3sovs. only if declared; with 400sovs. added; last mile and a-lialf of the Beacon Course.

Betting : 11 to 2 against Petrarch, 100 to 15 against Kaleidoscope, S to 1 against Sefton, 9 to 1 against Piacida, and 10S to 1 against Manoeuvre, 40 to 1 against Advance. After several false starts, caused by tho fractiouness of Cherron, the flag dropped to a good start. Trochet made most of the running, but, when fairly in the straight, Sefton went to the front. At the centre of. tho stand he was looking a clever winner, until Advance almost dropped from the clouds, and, although bearing to the lower ground for tho last hundred yards, he was travelling as fast again as the three-year-old, who only got home by the skin of his teeth —the verdict being a head. Manoeuvre was beaten by three-parts of a length ; Kaleidoscope close up. Time : 3uiin. 14secs. Value of the stakes .- £1310. NLWMARKET JIRST SPRING MEETING.

Inva out out the work at the start, followed by Sefton. The lot kept well together for a short distance, when Sefton took up the running at the Bushes. Insulaire closed with tho leaders, and shortly after took (up tho running, and came down the hill half a length in front of Pilgrimage, who was a couple of lengths in front of Sefton j the rest spread-eagled beforo descending the Bushes Hill. When fairly in tho Abingdon Dip Pilgrimage headed the French colt, and took up tlie running on breasting the hill, from which point tho raco was never in doubt, —the filly winning cleverly by half a length ; a length and a half divided the second and third—Childeric bad fourth. Time, linin. G7secs.

Blue Ridge, followed by Pilgrimage, made the running to the bushes, the lot being pretty well together. As they came over the hill, Pilgrimage took up the running, and Bhe was followed into tho Abiugdon Dip by Clementine and Jannette. The latter headed the French mare as they came up tho hill; but although Jannette ran gamely to the end, she failed to reach Pilgrimage, who won cleverly by three parts of a length; two lengths between second and third. Time, 2min.

How greatly this race has fallen off from "Joe Miller's" year, when 43 started in four ranks ; and Red Doer's year, when Kitchener rode him 4st., he himself weighing only 2st. 121b5., and beat a large field !
