Th.a fifte a n compefcitors were weighed out with extreme pucc&uiUity, and reached the post a few minutes before the time fixed for the start, A slight delay was caused by Cadogan and Gunnersbury breaking away as they walked up to Mr M 'George, but at the firat attempt tue fhg full to a good start. For a few strides the lot ran in a Hue, the first to break tha uniformity bsing Bute, who, on a mission to make the pace for his stable companion, was seat to the front at the top of bi3 speed, and soon placed an interval of half-a-dozen leDgths between himself and his immediate followers. On the stand aide of the course the colours of Cadogan were prominent, Gunnerßbury and Ruiierra lying as hid quarters iv toe middle of the oourae. Blue Blood, Uncaa, and Visconti were clear ' of the Heath House [ pair, Marshall Scott, and Cbaribert, and on the far Bide, following in the wake of Bate, were tho stable companions Zut and Rnyon i | d'Or. Of these mentioned, Cbaribert was soon pulled back into the company of Strathern, the extreme rear jemg brought up j i by LVu.c»strian, who was ba*ttainthe first 200 yards. Aft©>- him the fust to drop out of the fray wa< Wtßtbourae, TfLo was beaten j before h»lf the journey was accomplished ; and at the Bushes Marshall Scott and Visconti were in trouble, a few mora strides also finding out the weakness of Gunnersbury acd Uucas, Blue Blood accompanying them in I their retirement from the front. Before reaching the Abingdou Mill Bottom Cadogan raoed past Bute, who went on second, and was followed by Strathern, Ruperra, Discord, Zut, and Eayon dOr, Charibert makiug up his ground and now taking close order with this division, of whom Zut, Discord, Rupera, and Strathern hung out signals of distress when the foot of the hill was reached. Making the ascent for home Cadflgau held a, clear lead of Rayon dOr, who up to this point had been going well, and (Jharibert gradually getting oa tirma with the JYecea horße, the pair challenged Oadogan. Rayon ] dOr, however, cmld not climb tha hill, which ,Chariberb did iv ' the moat resolute fashion, and, getting the better of Cadogan after passing the distance, Charibert won somewhat easily by a length and a-half ; Rayon dOr was third, four lengths off ; thtn a kimilar distance from the French horse, Strathera, Bute, Discord, and Ruperra finiahtd head and hoad just clear of Zut, XTncas, and Visconti.
