(E Martin) 3 Betting : 3to 1 on Tristan, and 3to 1 agst ' Chippendale. • Credo cut out the work at a steady pace, and was followed at intervals of three lengths by Chippendale and Tristan into the Swinley 'bottom, where Chippendale drew up to Credo's heels and stayed there until entering the old course, when the gap was again widened. In rounding the bend the three gradually closed, and when Credo resigned to Chippendale, a quarter of a mile from home, Tristan came up f.n the other side, and by hanging to the right b imped his stable companion. Afterwards, however, he raced home as straight as an ar- • row, and with Chippendale unable to keep his company from the distance, the odds were ' easily landed by six lengths, not more than a ' nock separating second and third. ITHE PRINCE WALKS' STAKES, Of 50 co vn cauh, wit.h 1000 added, for three year-olds ; colts Bst 101b, fillies 8-t 51b; penalties and allowances; the second received 300 bovp, and Ihe third 200 out of the stakes ; new course (about lm sfur) 7'i subs 1 Lord Bradford's b c Quicklime, by Wenlock-Du-vrrnay, 9st lib (inc. olb extra) . .

(Pagan) 0 Betting: 6 to 5 on Quicklime, 4 to • 1 agst Shrewsbury, 100 to 12 agst Gareth, and 100 to 7 agst Pursebearer. Alban showed the way from Pursebearer, Shrewsbury, and Dolomite for a couple of hundred yards, when the running was taken up by Pursebearer. He in turn resigned almost immediately to Shrewsbury, who went down the hill clear of Alban, Pursebearer, Dolomite, and Gareth, with Laureate and Lxecutoi, side by side, in the rear. After leaving the Swinley bottom Alban joined Shrewsbury, and they entered the old course a couple of lengths ahead of Pursebearer, Dolomite, and Quicklime, and ran thus to the brick-kilns, where Alban got a neck the best of Shrewsbury on the outside. At the same time Purse. boarei 1 and Springkell raced up to their quar.

ters, and were in turn closely pursued by Gareth and Quicklime into the straight, where the favourite, who was pulling ; hard, sought for an open next the rails. In this he was unsuccessful, and as Shrewsbury, Alban and Pursebearer, although well beaten a quarter of a mile from home, did not drop away until reaching the distance, the favourite had been thrice disappointed before he was driven through under pressure. The moment he had made a path for himself, however, the race was won, as Gareth no sooner cleared Springkell opposite the Royal enclosure than he died out again in the faintest fashion, ' and was easily defeated by two lengths. Springkell was a bad third, Pursebearer a worse fourth, Shrewsbury and Alban next, and Antarctic last. Value of the stakes, £3025. THE ASCOT STAKES HANDICAP, Of 25 soys each, with 800 added for the winner, 100 for tho second ; tho third recieved 50 out of the stakes ; about two miles.

Retreat was in front to the Stand, when Archer pulled him back, and Faugh-a-Ballagh took up the running from Edelweiss and bprmg Tide, with Fortissimo and Isabel next, and Exeter and Retreat the whippers-in. ihey ran thus to the Hotel turn, where Faugh-a-Ballagh drew himself clear of Spring Tide, and the pair stretched away from Edelweiss and Fortissimo into the Swinley bottom, -when the last-named resigned to Isabel, with Retreat, now. by himself, in the rear. Before entering the old course Reveller took second place, and then hunted Faugh-a-Ballagh up until entering the straight, when Edelweiss took a prominent position on their left, with Exeter outside of him, and Retreat hugging the rails. From this point the lot, with the exception of the tailing away Spring Tide, kept olose order to the distance, where Archer let the favourite out, and instantly obtaining a strong command, he won in a canter from Faugh-a-Ballagh by threa lengths ; the same between second and third. Reveller was fourth, a neck m front of Exeter, with Isabel sixth, Fortissimo seventh, and Spring Tide beaten off, THE ASCOT DERBY STAKES, Of 50 soys each, with 500 added, for three-year-olds ; colts Bat 101b, Hllies 8»t Olb ; penalties and allowances ; the second recieved 100 aovs, and the third 60 out of the stakes.

Springkell made running, and was followed by Battlefield, Credo, and Shotover until half way down the Swinley Hill, when Credo took second place, and Shotover was pulled back last. The lot then ran in Indian file and at a moderate pace to the brick-kilns, where Battlefield and the Hygeia colt headed Credo and entered the straight at the heels of Springkell, with Shotover still lying off. A quarter of a mile from home the Hygeia colt and Credo died away, and an opening having presented itself on the rails a little farther on, the favourite came through with her ears pricked, and won in a hand canter by four lengths, about half as far separating second and third. Value of the stakes to the winner, £1150. THE FERN HILL STAKES, Of 20 soys each, with 30!) ad. led. Two-year-olds, 7st 2'.b ; three, 9st. Five furlongs. 15 subs.

They ran thus until half way up the hill, when Blue Rock and Petticoat resigned to Narcissa, who was closely pursued from the distance by Geheimniss and Sing Song; but the three-year-old failed to quite get on terms, and tho odds were floored, amid much excitement, by a head ; three-parts of a length -^narating second and third. Petticoat was last. THE ROYAL HUNT CUP, A piece of plate, value 500 soys, added to a handicap sweepstakes of 20 soys each, for all ages. New mile. CO subs.

This lot were soon a half a dozen lengths clear of Valentino, Limestone, and Toastmaster on the right, while Goggles headed Edelweiss ou the stand side until CHWg the rpad, wljen

Sweetbread carried his colours to the fore, with Edensor in attendance. They were persued up the hill by the Peine de Coeur colt, Marden, and Whin Blossom, and they ran with little further change to the end, Sweetbread winning very easily indeed by three lengths, a length separating second and third, Marden was a moderate fourth, Whipper-in fifth, and Goggles sixth, these being clear of Buchannan, Fenelon, Whin Blossom, and Silver Bell, with Prudhomme, Panique, Edelweiss, and Brag the last lot. Value of the stakes, £1280. THE CORONATION STAKES, Of 100 soys each, with 300 soys added, for three-year-old fllliea ; Bat 101b e*ch ; penalties and allowances; the second receive! 200 soys, and the third saved her stake.

(Cannon) 4 Betting : 9t02 on St. Marguerite, 100 to 15 agst Leonora, and 20 to 1 each against Rozelle and Incognita. Rozelle cut out the work, and soon held a clear lead of Incognita and St. Marguerite, which pair changed places in the first quarter of a mile, Mr Houldsworth's filly having in the meanwhile increased her lend to half a dozen lengths. As they rounded the bend St. Marguerite reduced the gap very rapidly, and had reached Rozelle's girths when Leonora arid Incognita also took close order at the distance on' either side. No sooner, however, had tlie verdict looked at the favourite's mercy than Rozelle shot away again, and won easily by >a couple of lengths, Leonora snatching second money from St. Marguerite in the last stride by a head. Incognita was a moderate fourth. Value of the stakes, £2450. THE ST. JAMES' PALACE STAKES, Of 100 soys each, with 300 added, for three year olds ; colts 9st, fillies Bst 111b ; maiden allowances ; second received 200 soys and the third saved stake.

Sachem cut out the work on the inside, aitonded by Palerno and Dalomite, these going on in front of Battlefield (and Berwick, with Gareth bringing up the rear. After running a quarter of a mile Palerno • drew up to the American's quarters, and the pair were followed past the Brick-kilns by Dolomite, the three being still clear of Berwick and Battlefield, and so on until entering the straight, when Leonora became the whipper-in. Round the bend Sachem still held the command, and so until a quarter of a mile from home, when Battlefield and Gareth drew up, the former coming away from the distance and winning easily by a length and a half ; one length separated second and third. Palermo was fourth, Berwick fifth, and the last two were Leonora and Dolomite, with the exception of Rowell, who was pulled up, having broken a blood-vessel. Value of the stakes £2000. THE GOLD CUP, Value ICO soys, given from tho fund, with 200 for the second, and 100 for the third, added to a subscription ©f 20 BOVB each ; three year olds 7st 71b, four 9st, live, six, and aged 9st 4lb ; mare 3 and geldings allowed 31b ; about two miles and a-half. 23 subs.

The last-named cut out the work, and held, a six-lengths lead at the Stand of Petronel, who was in turn half as far again before Foxhall until rounding the Hotel turn, when the three year old improved the pace, and widened the gap into the Swinley bottom. At the same time Foxhall got on closer terms with Petronel, and not more than a couple of lengths separated them at the entrance to the old course, where, however, Faugh-a-ballagh had stretched out the other two, and by no means came back so rapidly from the Brick-kilns as might have been expected. Still, he slackened steam considerably in rounding the bend, and Petronel was within a couple of lengths of him on entering the straight, where Foxhall had also taken his place at the quarters of Petronel until they picked up their ground, the Newmarket horse talcing the rails, and Foxhall the outside berth. At the foot of the hill Petronel tried to overhaul his stable companion, and signally failed, while the next to essay the feat was Foxhall, who had to be ridden out in earnest to get on terms opposite the Stand, after which he won a good race home by a neck ; three lengths between second and third. Time, 4 mm. 35 sec. Value of the stakes £1540. THE EOUS MEMORIAL STAKES, Of 10 soys each, with 1000 added ; threo-year-olds 7st Olb, four Sst 101b, five and upwards Sst 121b ; fillios allowed 3lb ; pena tics and allowances ; tho second received 100 soys out of the stakes ; new mile. 110 subs.

The last-named made play on the left from Balvany on the the other side, and they were followed by St. Marguerite, Gerald, and Carlyle, in whose heels came Retreat, Bonaparte, and Gaydene, until half-way up the hill, when Balvany dropped back. All the pull was next taken out of St. Marguerite, and Wolseley carried on the running from Retreat and Carlyle to the Stand, when the favourite made his effort, and getting up in the last fifty yards he won a well-contested race by three-parts ot a length, three lengths dividing second and third. Gerald was a bad fourth, Gaydene fifth, Balvany sixth, St. Marguerite next, and Bonaparte last. Value of tho stakes, £1280.

Betting : 9to 4 on Foxhall, II to 2 asrst Fiddler, 7 to 1 agst Exeter, and 100 to 1 agst Petronel. Exeter cut out the work at a fair pace, and held a three or four lengths' lead at the Stand from Fiddler, who was in turn twice as far in front of the other two to the Hotel turn, where Exeter, who did not care about leaving the vicinity of the stable yard, bolted into the furzes, and left Fiddler at the head of affairs from Foxhall. He was soon brought back again, however, and having taken second place to Fiddler in the Swinley bottom, not more than a length divided them on entering the old course, where Foxhall and Petronel also got on better terms. Still, daylight separated the qnartette until passing the brick-kilns, when Exeter began to swing his tail in suspicious fashion, and he was headed half-way round the bend by Foxhall, who came into the straight at the heels of Fiddler. Here both Exeter and Petronel were in hopeless difficulties, and although in the last quarter of a mile the Duke of Hamilton's colt was going his best, Foxhall was in a similar plight, and failing to get up, he sustained a six lengths^ defeat, Cannon having ceased to persevere in the last hundred yards. Foxhall pulled up very distressed, and so did Exeter and Petronel, who only passed the post at a slow canter. Time, 5 mm. 38 sec. Value of the stakes, £1130.

THE HARDWICKE STAKES, Of 2000 floys, added to a Bweepstakes of 10 soys each ; three-year-olds 7st 121b, fourOst, five and upwards 9st 21b ; mares and geldings allowed 31b ; penalties and allowances } the second received 10 per cent, and the third 5 per cent, on the whole stakes ; Swinley Course ; one mile and a-half. 123 subs.

He afterwards had to be led from the Hotel turn to the starting post, from which Sachem and Retreat showed the way for a couple of hundred yards, and then resigned to Tristan, wh.o rattled along through the Swinley bottom clear of Sachem, Sweetbread lying third, and Retreat being pulled back last. As they approached the junction with the old course, Sachem drew up to Tristan's quarters, and laid there until entering the straight, • when tfye others took close order, Poulet having the outside berth. Retreat was first in difficulties, and with Sachem and Poulet in trouble at the distance, the finish was then confined to Tristan and Sweetbread, and gamely as the latter stuck to his work, the favourite comfortably held his own, and won easily by a length, twice as far separating second and thirdSachem was close up fourth, and Retreat last.
