At a Quarter of a mile Carillon tnd Dresden 'hina rushed fio the front and carried on the running from Reveller, Parole, Kißgfisher, and Philammon ; while Attalua retired to keep company with Rylstone and Gilderoy in the back ground. Thus they went over the hill, but at the mile post Carillon began to fall back, and Philammon improved his position by racing up to Dresden China, the pair soon holding several lengths' lead of Omega, Parole, Reveller, Ohipperdale, and Carillon ; but at half a mile from home the favaurite cleared ont from the Irishman, who was soon pasßedjby Chippendale and Reveller also. Directly the bend was made, Dresden China dashed away from her followers, and, spread eagling her field, won, pulling up by thirty lengths.

Some delay was caused by Euperra's fractlouflness at the post, he for some minutes could not be induced to join the others, and when he did there were three failures before tbe actual start, of which Salteador got a litle the worst, he attempting to whip round as the flag fell. Visconti was quickest on his legs, and was first to show in advance, and he was clear of his opponents for fifty yards, when he was pulled back. Rayon dOr was then sent to the front, and he made the running clear of Ruperra, Alchemist, and Muley Edris, close behind whom was *Zat, wide on the outside, followed by Palmbearer, clear of the Squeaker, Visconti, Sir Bevys, and Exeter on the outside ; the last lot being Robbie Burns, Protectionist, and Salteador. In this order they ran till passing the old mile-post, Rayon dOr increased his advantage over Zut, Alchemist, and Ruperra, who were now leading the others, of whom Sir Bevys was the most prominent/ and Robbie Barns the last. Passing .the rifle butts Marshal Scott broke down and his rider dismounted. At the half-mile post Exeter, Sir Bevys, Palmbearer, Vucontl, and Robbie Burns^began to improve their positional Before reaching the turn Zut and Alchemist were passed by Ruperra and Exeter, who went on a couple of lengths behind Rayon dOr, and dear of Sir Bevys, at whose quarters lay Palmbearer and Robbie Burns ; the most prominent of the others Jbeing Visconti. Before reaching the distance all were in trouble except Rayon dOr, Ruperra, and Exeter, of whom the firstnamed almost immediately drew clean away and canteredhome five lengths before Ruperra who was a length before Exeter. Palmbearer was fourth, six lengths away ; a little clear of Salteader and Robbie Burns, fifth and sixth ; next to whom came Visconti seventh, Sir Bevy's eighth, Whitejjpoppy ninth ; the three laat being Lansdo^ne, Zut, and Protectionist.
