The Race. It was quite half au hour after the appointed timelwhen they reached the post, and tiien some further delay took place, Paul's Cray, Cyprus, and Blantyre jumping away in a false start, and running nearly a quarter of a mile. When the signal wbb given it was not one of Mr M'George's happiest efforts, and behind a few stragglere could he discerned, Speculation, Red Comyn, and Wild Prince, with Launceaton several lengths behind them. Roßy Cross was the first to show in front, but she was immediately joined by Rldotto, the pair going on clear of Censer and Knight of JBurghley, with Elf KW at the head of the remainder, for about 200 yards, when they began to nettle into places. Censer then assumed the command, and at a good pace came along, followed by Kaight of Burghlay, Ridotto, and Elf King in close company, the next lot comprising King Boris, Attalus, Cradle, Rosy Cross, und Tue Swell, while Red Corny njhad rapidly run through his hojsqs, and was now close up with Parole and Blantyre, who headed the succeeding lot. Then came Wild Prince, Belphcebe, and Speculation, while Cyprus and Lauuceaton made up nouo of the ground they had lost at the start. As they went past the mile post and through the furzes there was little chance, but before reaching the top of the hill, Knight of Burghley headed Censer on ,the outside, and was almost clew of Lord Stamford's horse, who was followed by Elf King, Ridotto, and Cradle, these being all together and closely pressed by The Swell, Parole, and Attains, with Rosy Cross, Paula Cray, and Blautyre heading the remainder. As they came down the hill Censer retired from the van, and Elf King at once joined Knijht of Burghley, Mr Crawfnrd's horse on the rail* whowing with a alight advantage as they entered the straight, Cradle and Ridotto at the same time passing Censer, while Blantyre, Parole, Paul's Cray, Bolphtobe, and King Bor»« were most prominent of the others, though just before entering the straight Wild Princs joiced them. Ab th«y came to the road Censer drew up again, and Ridotto, Elf King, t and Knight of Burffhley ware running almost in a line just clear of Parole, Cradle, and Blantyre, nothing else having a chance of success. Half w»y np Denser and Knight of Burghley were fiaally done with, and Ridotto was quite a lengfch in front of Cradle and Parole, but the latter was going much the best of the three, and heading Cradle less than 200 yards from home he joined Ridotto opposite Tattersall's enclosure, and having Lord Rosebery's horse in trouble at once the American won in a canter by a length Cradle being a bad third ; Blantyre was a still worse fourth ; and thon cams Paul's Cray fifth j Elf King sixth j while Wild Prince, who passed & lot of pullecl-up horaes, was eeventh ; Belphcebe finishing ; Red j Comyu ninth,; King Boiis tenth j Cyprus; «
