The flag fell without a failure, and LieutGeneral soou Ik Id a clear lead of Lancaster Bowman, The Abbofc, Granthnrn, and Mariner, these being succeeded by Napsbury, Boreas, and Petrouel, with Zealot the whipper in. This order was maintained for about a quarter of a mile, when Grantham drew into second place, and in turn deprived Lieut- General of the lead in the Swinley bottom. Tbey were then followed by Lancaslor Bowman, find the Bed Riband colt, who were separated by a gap from Mariner, Ambassadress. Boreas, and The Abbot until enteiing tie old course, when Lieut- General lost two or three places. The vacancy was immediately filled up by thn Red Riband colt, who had no sooner joined Grantham at tho brickkilns, than Zealot and the Mariner became their immediate successors, with Petronel, The Abbot, and Boreau the next three. In rounding the bend Granthara struck his flag, and the Red Riband eott was followed into the straight by Zoalofc fU'd Mariner, of whom the latter cut it more thun a quarter of a mile from home. At the same time Zealot bore his colours to the fore from Petronel and the Riband colt, andthoy looked like sup-
plying the first three to the distance, when the favourite, who had appeared out of the race from the bend, came through and took second place. This was all, however, that he could accomplish, for although struggling gamely to the end, Lord Bradford's colt stalled him off, and won by a length ; four lengths between second and third. The Red Riband colt was fourth, Grantham fifth, and Ercildoune sixth, these being a long way ahead of Lancaster Bowman and Ambassadress, with Mariner the whipper-in. Time, 2 mm. 55 sec Value of the stakes, £3400. THE ASCOT STAKES (Handicap) of 600 soys. added to a sweep of 25 soys. each ; two miles ; 50 subs.

Teviotdale, who wore a curb bridle for the first time, was very awkward at the post, and after a break away he refused to join his horses until he had been led back. Still his head was straight when Mr M' George gave the signal, and with The Pique colt cutoing out the work he laid behind Moorfoot, Attalus, and Sly Dance to the Hotel turn, when he drew^ into second place ; but ho was almost immediately repassed by Attalus and Moorfoot, and also became whipper-in on the top of the Swinley Mile, up to which point Prologue had been the last of seven. As they disappeared from view The Star was next in attendance upon The Pique colt, and they sailed along from Attalus and Prologue until entering the old course, when the pair changed places. With Moorfoot now losing ground Prologue and Teviotdale went on third and fourth to the brick kilns, when the favourite pulled his way to the quarters of The Star, and made a gap from the Fienchman. Before rounding the bend Teviotdale was at the head of affairs, and although Prologue collared the pumped out Star half way up the hill, and bad some " go" left until just below the distance, he was all abroad when the pinch came, and suffered an easy defeat by five lengths : The Star was a bad third, The Pique colt and Moorfoot (side by side) next, and Sly Dance last. Time, 3 mm. 38seo. Value of the stakes, £1165. THE ASCOT DERBY STAKES Of 50 soys each, h ft, with 500 added, for three-year-olds.

Ercildoune was in front for a few strides, and then resigned to Brother to Blankney, who went down the hill with a clear lead of Tbe Chirper, Loid Rosebery's colfc separating them from Merry go Round and Mask until entering the old course, when the favourite became the whipper-iu. Although the lot were now travelling in Indian file, they took close order at the brick kilns, soon after passing which Mask rushed up into third place oh the inside, and parting company from The Chirper just before Merry-go-Round and Ercildoune joined iesue at the distance. He won in a canter by a couple of lengths; half v length between seoond and third. Ercildoune was fourth, and Creation last.

After the eturt had been delayed nearly half anhour, the main offender being Lancaster Bowman, who refused to join his horses, Vegetarian got away in front ; he was almost immediately pulled back, and Strathblane, in the centre, settled down with a clear lead of Strathern, Lord Olive, and Silverstreak on his right, and Sir Joseph, Ellangowan, Humbert, Vegetarian, J-'ertius, and Sutler on the stand side. . The next rank was composed of Master Kildare, Lancaster Bowman, Briglia, Scapegrace, end My Delight until crowing the road, when Stia<hblaue had shot hia bolt, and refigued to Linden and Ellangowan. Of the last named pair Linden was done with at the foot of the hill, where Strathern took up the running, and quickly got rid of his stable Qompanion,
Silveretreak, as well as Ellangowan, My Delight, and Humbert. He was then followed by Sir Joseph, Sutler, Tertius, and Scapegrace to the distance, where Lord Clive, who had been under pressure for a long way, drew into seoond place ; but he failed to get anywhere near to Strathern, and, served by the weight to the end, he won easily by three lengths ; a length separating second and third. Sutler was olose up, fourth, with a neck advantage of Sir Joseph, Scapegrace finishing sixth, Lancaster Bowman seventh, Briglia eight, and Caxtonian ninth, while the " tail " waß composed of Lancastrian, Exmouth, Speculation, Prestonpanß, Ruperra, and Leoville. Value of the stakes, £1580. THE GOLD CUP, Value 1000 soys, given from the fund, with 200 for the second and 100 for the third, added to a subscription of 20 soys each ; three-year-olds 7st 51b, four Bst 101b, six and aged 9stslb; about two miles and a half ; 34 subs. Mr F Gretton's b h Isonomy, by Sterling out of Isola Bella, 5 yrs, 9st 31b .. . . (Cannon) 1 Lord Bradford's Chippendale, 4 yrs, Bst 101b (JOsborno) 2 Count F de Lagrange's Zut, 4 yrs, Bst 10lb (Goater) 3 Betting : 9t04 on Isouomy, sto 2 agst Chippendale, and 33 to 1 agst Zut. Chippendale made running on the stand side, with Isonomy following him in the centre for a quarter of a mile, when they settled down into Indian file. At the Stand, Chippendale, who was setting a " nice pace," had drawn away six or eight lengths from Isonomy, who was in turn a couple in front of Zut until halfway down tne Swinley Hill, when the favourite slightly reduced the gap, and in so doing increased his own advantage from the Frenchman. After entering the old course, closer order was taken all round, and when Chippendale entered the straight, very little daylight separated him from Isonomy, and John Osborne was getting a little uneasy. Although Zut reached the " champion's " quarters on the outside a quarter of a mile he fell back again when below the distance, and with the challenge now taking place, Isonomy wrested the command from Chippendale in a very few strides, and if loth to leave him, the issue was never in doubt, and he rau home a gallant and easy winner by a length ; twice as far separating seoond and third. Time, 4 mm. 45 seo. Value of the stakes, £1650, THE ROUS MEMORIAL STAKES, Of 10 soys each, h ft, to the Rous Memorial Fund, with 1000 added ; three-year-olds 7st 81b, four Bst 101b, five and upwards, Bst 121b ; fillies allowed 31b ; penalties and allowances ; new mile ; 106 subs, Count F de Lagrange's eh c Rayon dOr, by Flageolet— Araucaria, 4 yrs, 9st 61b (mc 101b ex) (Goater) 1 Mr Alexander's Thunderstone, 6 yrs, Bst 121b (Huxtable) 2 Mr R Jardine's b c by St Albans— Viridia, 3 yrs, 7st 31b .. .. (Kellett) 3 Betting : 4 to 1 on Rayon dOr, 5 to 2 agst Thunderstone, and 100 to 8 agst the Vidris colt. . The last named was quickly tailed off, and Thunderstone out out the work to the foot of the hill, when Rayon. dOr pulled his way to the fore, and won in a common oanter by a length and a half ; a bad third. Value of the stakes, £1535. THE ST JAMES'S PALACE STAKES, Of 100 soys each, h ft, with 300 added, for three-year-olds ; colts Bst 101b, fillies, Bst 71b ; maidens, 71b ; old mile ; 22 subs. Duke of Westminster's eh c Bend Or, by Doncaster —Rouge Rose, Bst 101b . . . . (Fordham) 1 Mr F Gretton's b e Fernandez, Bst 101b (Cannon) 2 Lord Falmouth's eh c Apollo, Bst 101b . . (F Webb) 3 Mr J H Houldsworth's b or br c by Favonius— Red Riband, Bst 31b .. .. (Lemaire) 0 Lord Rosebery's Prince Palatine, Bst 31b (Constable) ' 0 Betting : 100 to 30 on Bend Or, 8 to 1 agst' the Red Riband colt, and 100 to 8 agist Apollo. The Red Riband colt made running from Prince Palatine and Bend Or, with Apollo and Fernandez alternately in the rear until entering the straight, when Apollo rushed into third place. The pace had been so moderate, however, that the lot were pulling double a quarter of a mile from home, with hardly sufficient room for Fernandez to come through between Apollo and the Red Riband colt j but as soon as an opening was available he made a shoot and finished the race from the half- distance with Bend Or, who always had something to spare, and won very cleverly indeed by a head ; a bad third. Prince Paladine was fourth, and the Red Riband colt last. Value of the stakes, £1550. THE ALEXANDRA PLATE Of 1000 soys., added to a sweepstakes of 25 soys. each, 15ft ; four-year-olds 9st, five 9st 61b, six and aged 9st 71b ; about three miles ; 25 subs. Prince Soltykofl's bk h Thuria, by Tibthorpe or Cremorne out of Verona, 5 yrs, 9st 71b (Rossiter) 1 Mr J H Houldsworth's eh c Ruperra, 4 yrs 9st (J Osborne) 2 Mr F Gretton's Westbourne, 4 yrs, 9st (Cannon) 3 Count Fde Lagrange's Inval, 5 yrs, 9st 61b (Goater) 4 Betting : 6t05 on Thurio, sto 2 agst Westbourne, 4 to 1 agst Inval, and 20 to 1 agst Ruperra. Inval out out the work, followed at intervals of a couple of lengthsiby Thurio, Westbourne, and JEtuperra to the hotel turn, where the two leaders widened the gap. After entering the Old Course, Thurio drew up to the quarters of the Frenchman, and at the same time Westbourne parted company from Reperra. He was hanging very much on his bridle, however, in rounding the bend, and had to be fairly hauled out of tbe heels of Thurio as they entered the straight. Inval was beaten below the Spagnoletti board, and Thurio then easily held the ungenerous Westbourne to the half distance, while Ruperra, who had been stealing up almost unobserved, made a tremendous effort, and was only beaten by a head ; four lengths separating second and third. Value of the stakes, £1390. THE HARDWICKE STAKES Of 2000 soys., added to a sweepstakes of 10 soys. each ; three-year-olds 7st 12, four 9st, five and upwards 9st 121b ; mares and geldings allowed 31b ; penalties and allowances ; Swinley Course ; 142 subs. Mr C Blanton's eh c Exeter, by Cathedral out of Lady Sophie, 4 yrs, 9st ". . . . (Cannon) 1 Count F de Lagrange's Rayon dOr, 4 yrs, 9st 101b (including 101b extra) . . . . (Goater) 2 Mr 'R C Naylor's b c Tho Abbot, 3 yrs, 7st 121b (Luke) 3 Mr R R Christopher's Discord, 4 yrs, Ost 101b (including 101b extra) .. .. (Lynch) 4 Betting : 13 to 8 on Rayon dOr, 4 to 1 agst Exeter, 9 to 2 agßt The Abbot, and 33 to 1 agßt Discord. After the start had been delayed through Goater breaking up a stirrup leather, The Abbot was in front for a few strides, when Exeter took a clear lead of him, and they were followed into the Swinley bottom by Rayon dOr and Discord. Just before reaching the junction with the Old Course Exeter shied at some boarding, and as he baulked The Abbot the latter lost nearly a dozen lengths, and Rayon dOr drew into second place. 1 At the bricli-kilns The Abbot rejoined Rayon dOr, and they got to the heels of Exeter in commeno ing the bond. Still the three-year-old had lost his place again before entering the straight, and with Rayon dOr pulling his way to the fore in climbing the hill, he had a neck and shoulders the best of it at the Spagnoletti board, with the race apparently in hand. But Exeter stuck to him like a leech, and when the Frenchman was required to make an fffort he threw his head up, and lost an exciting verdict by the aame. Four lengthß between second and third.
Value of the stakes, £3400.
