The last-named showed the way for a couple of hundred yards, when she resigned to Zeus, and with Tristan going pn third, they travelled in Indian file, and at a very slow pace to the top of the hill. Hero the speed was improved a little, and Madame dv Barry raced with Zeuß to Tattenham corner, where Tristan pulled his way to the front on the inside, and held a clear lead over the road. An easy half way up the straight enabled Retreat to get on terms at the distance ; but this was only on sufferance, as Tristan went away again opposite the stand, and won easily by a length and a half ; twice as for dividing second and third. Madame dv Barry broke down and did not pass the post.
