Lord Rosebory's b c Voluptuary, by CremorneMiss Evelyn .. .. .. .. 0 Betting : Even on Peregrine ; 4to 1 against Geologist ; 11 to 2 Iroquios ; 100 to 7 i)on Fulano. The track was in good condition, and was very hard. Peregrine's appearance gave great satisfaction to his fanciers, but Irnquois seemed to bo in the best of spirits, his action being much admired. Afrer oue break away a good start was effected. • Wb>n the horeos wera first seen at the top of the hill it waa difficult to make out from the grand stand which had the advantage j but coming down the hill Perogrine, who was on the inside, had a fair lead. His friends began to shout " Peregrine wiDB," but as the horßes ' turned the- corner, Archer's colours wer9 seen pressing forward on the stand side. The two leadets ran an exciting race up to the grand stand, where Iroquois, noee showed in front, and he continued to get ahead until past the judge's stand. The finish was a really splendid one.
Time, 2 mm. SO sec. A more detailed aocount says :— At the start Marshal M'Donald took a slight lead of Oulloden and St. Louis. The three came up in a line clear of Cumberland, Don Fulano, Town Moor, Geologist, and Fortissimo. The next lot were Iroquois and Peregrine, and on passing the mile-post St.- Louia, Town Moor, Iroquois, and Peregrine were the most prominent, with Don Fukno well up. There was but little alteration in this position to Tattenham Corner, where St. Louis led, and Peregrine' (after rnnniug against Geologist and nearly capsizing him) took a slight lead. On entering the straight run and at the distancfc-poßt he looked Jike winning in a canter, but Iroquois came on with a rush, and heading Peregrine in a few strides, won cleverly, with Peregrine secend, find Town Moor third; followed by Scobell, Cumberland, Voluptuary, Tristan, Limestone, Geologist, and Fortissimo in the order named, and the others tailed off.
Still another account of the race says Marshal M'Donald waa ordered to make the running for Don Fulano, and retained the lead for a quarter of a mile, when he was joined by St. Louis. The pair ran together to the mile-post, where St. Louis took a slight lead. Marshal M'Donald, however, continued to keep close u"p until the corner was rounded, when both he and St. Louis were beaten. Voluptuary then led, but dropped back. Town Moor. Tristan, and Peregrine now came to the front, with Don Fnlano, Soobell, aud Iroquois in the next lot. Tristan was almost directly beaten. Peregrine, Town Moor, and , Iroquois ran in the order named to the grand-atand, where Iroquois snowed in front, and continuing gaining until past the judge's stand. ' Despite Don Fulano's good running to and past the corner, the last five, in which he was included, w^re beaten a long way. * ..»
