A i The winner won in a hand-canter, and must be a Very good animal indeed, for Tristan and Althotas are both good performers, and have won races, but they could not make the winner extend herself. Archer just touched her with the spur after they had trone half the distance ; but this Was merely to make her take her place, and then he came away and won very easily.

The start could hardly be called a good one, for Westbourne, Toastmaster, and Simba had decidedly the best of it, whilst Master Kildare's colours Were the first almost to get to the front. The pace was made Very fast by Clarencieux and Maid of Orleans, and Boon the inferior animals began to drop back beaten. As they rounded Tatterham Corner, Henry George led with Maid of Orleans, Gil Bias, Clareneieux close up* Here Leoville began making up ground he had lost at the start, and took his place amongst the leaders. Kineton was doing well, when he hit his leg and fell back, while Rosy Cross bioke down, and was eased at once. Maid of Orloans was done with a distance from home, and then Leovillo and Clarencieux looked like making a fight; but Archer at this juncture brought out Master Kildare, and he and Leoville soon had Clarencieux in trouble, when they went on looked together to the winning-post. A more exciting finish has rarely been seen, and as both dashed past the winning-post it was impossible to tell who had won ; but Archer's luck or skill, or both combined, had not deserted him, and his number went up amidst loud cheers. Visconti was fourth, then came Caxtonian and Parole, with Maid of Orleans next. The time was 2 mm. 14 sec. The ring were large losers by the result, and the public take most of the money, for Lord Hastings (who was only married last week) is not given to heavy be+.ting. Archer was greeted with a most hearty welcome on his return to scale, and the victory was evidently a very popular one. Leoville ran well, and is a smart horse. He was most highly tried for the Cambridgeshire last year, and would no doubt have won if he had run up to his trial— in fact, if he had got off as well as Master Kildare he would probably have won the race under review.
