Errand Boy in the centre, made play from Neophite, Angelina, and Karoussel on the left, and the Mrs Wolfe filly on the right, with Electric Spark and Tristan at the head of the remainder, of whom Albion and Montrose were most conspicuous, and in this order they ran to the Bushes, when Karoussel dropped back, and Errand Boy came down the hill closely pursued by Neophite and Angelina, the three being clear of Tristan into the Dip, where the last named gradually improved his position, aud, assuming the command half-way up the hill, he otfme on and won cleverly by half a length; a head separated the second and third; Neophite was fourth.

(Morgan) 0 BETTING AT THE START. 2 to 1 agst The Abbot 9—4 Elizabeth 10—1 Milan 100— 8 Pride of the Highlands j 100— 8 Sword Dance 100—6 Mask There was no delay at the start, and directly the signal was given Aristocrat, occupying a position to the right, went to the front and made the running from Scot Guard and Fire Queen, on his own side, and these at their best pace came on clear of Sword Dance, Marc Antony, and Elizabeth, on the other side, while moat prominent of the remainder were Pride of the Highlands and Milan, with Napsbury next, dear of The Abbot and Mask. Half-way across the flat Fire Queen was hopelessly beaten, and rapidly dropped astern, an example which was soon afterwards followed by Aristocrat and Scot Guard. Beyond this but little change occurred until coming to the Bushes, where Milan also beat a retreat, and with Pride of the Highlands also in trouble, Sword Dance came to the front, closoly attended by The Abbot and Elizabeth) at the head of the others being Mask and Pride of the Highlands, Immediately after passing the Bushes Elizabeth retired, and with Sword Dance also holding out signals of distress, Mask assumed a lead of about a length in the Jip, and although The Abbot made a big effort up the severe ascent for home he could not quite get on terms with Prince Soltykoff's horse again, and the result of a fine race was declared a head in favour of the outsider; a bad third. Sword Dance was a bad fourth, Pride of the Highlands fifth, Milan sixth, Marc Antony and Scot Guard next, and the last two were the Red Riband colfc and Fire Queen. Time, by Benson's ohronograph, 2 mm. 28 sec Value of the stakes, £1442. Mask thus completely reversed his running with The Abbot in the Two Thousand Guineas. Elizabeth upheld her form in the One Thousand Guineas, for she now carried a 71b penalty for winning that race. NEWMARKET TWO-YEAR-OLD PLATE, Of 200 soys, added to a sweepstakes of 10 soys each, h ft. Rous Course. 46 subs. Mr P Lorillard's Iroquois (brother to Harold) by Leamington—Maggie, Bst Mb ..

(Lemaire) 0 Betting: 2 to 1 agsfc Iroquois, 10 to 3 agst Red King, 5 to 1 agsfc Herman, 8 to 1 agst Banneret, and 10 to 1 agst Kiihleborn. Herman made the running, attended by Red King and Iroquois, into the Abingdon Bottom, where Kiinleborn drew up, and Iroquois took up the running. When in front, however, he ran very lazily, and Kuhleborn caught him; but the latter sweryiDg lost his place, and Jeffery, taking up his whip on Iroquois, he immediately shot out full of running, and won in a canter by four lengths; a bad third; the others, passing the post in straggling order, were whipped in by the Marie Galante colt.
May 11th. THE GREAT NORTHERN HANDICAP, Of 300 soys, added to a sweepstakes of 15 soys each, 10 ft; winners extra; second received 50 soys, and third saved stake. One mile and threequarters. 16 subs. Lord Zetland's b m Ellangowan, by Strathoonan— Polnsettia,4yi'fl,63fcßlb.. (Gallon) I

After three or four failures, Knight Templar, on the inside, got away with a clear lead of Blue Beard and Rycerski, who went on a couple of lengths in front of The Dean, Prevention, and Palmbearer, whilst Ellangowan, who com menced slowly, was last of all until a quarter of a mile had been run, when she joined her horses, and left Palmbearer in the rear. Meanwhile, Knight Templar showed the way at a moderate pace, with Bluebeard and Rycerski as his nearest pursuers, the latter closingwith him at the old mile-post, and reducing his lead to a short neck, the others being spread out in open file, with Palmbearer three or four lengths behind everything. Six furlongs from home Knight Templar suddenly shot away clear of Rycorski and improved the pace materially, and at the same time Prevention, The Dean, and Bluebeard closed up with the Middleham three-year-old, and Ellangowan took up a good place behind the quartette. Next came Reveller, and Palmbearer still lay off. When fairly round the Middlethorpe turn, Knight Templar was dead settled and dropped away, and Rycerski followed suit immediately afterwards. Bluebeard wbb then left with a slight lead of Ellangowan. The pair ran a slashing race home, and the latter gettingthe best of it within the distance, won by half a length; Palmbearer was pulled up within a few yards of the chair, and Revellorwas placed a bad third, with the Ashgill horse fourth, Knight Templar fifth, Dean Bixth, and. Rycerski seventh, all close together. Prevention was last, beaten four or five lengths farther away. Value of the stakes, £420.
