Several break aways preceded the actual start, ia which Mr M' George sent them away nearly in a line, and in this order they ran for a few strides, when Pelleas drew out and came on with a clear lead, followed, as Hear as we could make out, through the heavy rain, by King Priam, Ulster, Sybil, Leoville, and Experiment, in close company,- while the second division wa3 headed by Petronel, and wide on the rieht by Fernandez and Lucetta, the latter being on the whip hand of the favourite, to whom succeeded Evasion, Castillon, Wallenstein, Nereid, and Toastmasfcer, with Exeter, American Spend strift, and Cipolata in the extreme rear. Owing to the heavy downpour the colours of the respective competitors were scarcely distinguishable, therefore our details must be taken 1 ' errors excepted. " Afc the Bed Post the front rank was reduced by the retirement of Leoville, Castillon, Eetreat, and Toastmaster, and Lord Rosebery'a second string came on in advance of Lucetta and the favourite, Cipolata, who had gradually threaded her way through her horses, and now took place with the front rank. Halfway iv the rails Pelleas gave was to Lucetta, bnt the latter was immediately after challeaged by the favonrifce, when Greaves took up hiß whip, from which the filly swerved, and iv so doing narrowly escaped bumping Fernandez ; but again swerving, she crossed his track so immediately to his front as to occasion Fordham to ease him to prevent a collision. At this time Greaves had steadied Lucetta, who came on and won by half a length, Fernandez defeat ing Cipolata by a couple of lengths from the second horse; Pelleas was placed fourth, asimilar distance to the rear of his stable companion ; Wallenstein being fifth, Toastmaster sixth, Retreat'seventh, with Eminence and Buchanan next, with Chirper tenth, and the rest pulling up at wide intervals, whipped in by Exeter, Dreamland, and American Spendthrift. On returning to scale, Eordham lodged an objection against the winner on the ground of a cross, which was investigated by the stewards before dinner, and, after hearing evidence thereon, the objection waß overruled^ Time, 2 mm. 11 sec.

On the right, Brag arid Fiddler were in front of Lucy Glitters and Dakota, and on the left, Golden Plover was followed by Montrose, Town Moor, and St. Louis, clear of Bal Gal, the centre lot being headed by Sir Marmaduke. Thay ran in thig order to the Bushes, where Fiddler and Golden Plover were beaten, and Bal Gal gradually improved her position. Soon, in descending the hill, Town Moor and St. Louia hung out signals of distress, and Brag was joined by Lucy Glitters, Bal GJ at the same time quitting the company of the righthand division. A very fine race resulted oufc of the dip, Bal Gil just having the best of it at last, and winning by a neck ; a similar distance separated the second and third. St. Loaia waa fourth, Town Moor fifth, Fiddler and Dakota nex j, and Sir Marmaduke last. Time, by Benson's chronograph, 1 mm. 41 sec. Value of the stakes, £1920.
