Soon afterwards Cohort, Bon-jour, and Bolero were beaten, and retired in favour of Export and Macheath, to whom succeeded Ithuriel. The two leaders seemed to hang to one another for a few strides, " and of the pair Export had an advantage of about a neck, until Wood fairly asked the favourite to go, when he shot up, and eventually with something to spare by half a length ; Ithuriel a bad third ; Bun-jour was fourth, and Cohort last.— Value of the stakes, £1020.

At the first attempt Mr M'George succeeded in getting his field upon the best of terms, and there was Bcarcely any delay before the flag went down to one of the best starts ever seen. For a few strides the widely extended line remained unbroken, but with the heavyweights steadying and the "feathers" on the other hand forcing the pace, a change was soon apparent. The first to show ia advance was Nesscliff, who took up the running on the top ground, and came on with Sachem in immediate attendance, on the right of the pair succeeding St. Marguerite well'up, while on the left was Hackness. Next came Venusta, slightly in advance of Vibration, the Peine de Cceur colt, Buchanan, and John Ridd, Shrewsbury, who seemed unable to go the pace at first, following in company with Camehard and Lowland Chief, while conspicuous on the lower ground were Geheimniss and Nellie, with Pursebearer separating them from the remainder, who were whipped in by Tristan, Falmouth, St. James, and Basilique, of whom the last-named ruptured a bloodvessel very early in the oontest. After running a quarter of a mile St. Marguerite was fulled back, and Nesscliff went on just clear of lackness, Venusta, and Vibration, with the Peine de Cceur colt, Sachem, Bookmaker, Cameliard, John Ridd, and Lowland Chief next in front of St. Marguerite, Nellie, and Geheimniss, while Tristan now began gradually, but at the same time perceptibly, to "ttproye his position. When rather better than half the journey had been covered the two Yankee colts, Sachem and Bookmaker, dropped back, and Nesscliff continued to thunder along ra front of Hackness, Vibration, and Venusta, with Cameliard next, and St. Marguerite, Lowland Chief, the Peine de Cceur colt, Nellie, Geheimniss, Tristan, bhrewsbury, and Sachem all in a cluster at the head of the others, of wkom Jasmin and Buchanan were the most prominent, while toiling m the rear were Don Fulano, St. James, and Rozelle, a long way m front of the distressed Basilique. Soon afterwards Martin began to show signs of anxiety on Vibration, and with Nesscliff also hanging put signala of distress, S^fp^P °f Ut fU " °,f, f r^ nin e> and ca ™ past the Red Post a couple of lengths clear of Vibration, Nesscliff, and St. Marguerite all of whose riders were busy at work. Then came Venusta and Shrewsbury, of whom the latter seemed to be going well within hinwelf, with Nellie, Geheimniss, and Tristan most prominent of the remainder. Three hundred yards from home Vibration, Nesscliff, and St Marguerite were hopelessly beaten, and Shrewsbury ran into second place. At the same time Geheimness made a grand effort, and Nellie too, looked very dangerous, but both died away again, and with Hackness sailing steadily along in front of Shrewsbury, the verdict was ultimately announced three lengths in favour of Mr Peck s filly ; four lengths separated tho second and third ; Geheimniss wqb a good fourth, ten or a dozen lengths clear of Lowland
Chief, fifth ; Sachem was sixth, Tristan seventh, St. Marguerite eighth, Vibration, Nessclift, Buchanan, and Jasmifi next, and the last three were Bookmaker, Don Fulano, and St. James, with the exception of Basilique, who walked in with the crowd. Time by Benson's chronograph, 2 mm. 11 3-sth sec. Value of the stakes, £1787. THE DEVVHURST PLATE, Of 3(10 eovs, added to a sweepstakes of 25 soys each For two-year-olds.

Betting : 5 to 4 against Energy, 3to 1 St. Blaise, 9 to 2 Goldfield, 10 to 1 Ladislas. Ladislas, on the left, made joint running with St. Blaise, Goldfield being close up next, and clear of Energy and St. Blaise. They ran thus to the Bushes, where St. Blaise dropped back beaten, and Ladislas being left front of Goldfield made the remainder of the running, and won easily by two lengths ; a neck separated the second and third. Ettarre passed Energy in the last few strides, and the pair finished fourth and fifth respectively, and Regain was last. Time by Benson's Chronograph, 1 mm 42 3-sth sec— Value of the stakes, £1557.

Adriana waited on Macheath until entering the cords, when she drew up with a rattle, and quickly having the favourite in trouble, won easily by three-parts of a length. THE ALL- AGED .STAKES, Of 100 soys cich, la ft ; weight for age ; certain allowances. Bretby Stakes course (6 furlongs). Prince Soltykoff's br c Scobell, by Carnival— Lad y Sophie, & yrs, 93t 21b ..

(P Archer) 2 Lord uosebery'B br f Kermesse, 3 yrs, Bs-t 81b (T Cannon) !$ Betting : 6to 4 agst Scobell, 75 to 40 Kermesse, and 5 to 2 Geheimniss. Scobell, on the left, made the running with a slight lead of Geheimniss in the centre, Kermesse being close up on the right. They ran thus until half-way down Bushes Hill, when Kermesse was beaten, and Geheimniss challenged Scobell; but she hung very much as they climbed the hill for home, and Scobell, just holding his own to the end, won a fine race by three-quarters of a length, four lengths dividing the second and third. THE JOCKEY CLUB CUP, , Value 300 soys, added to a uwoepstakes of 20 boys each; penalties and allowances. Cesarewnch course (<5 mile 3 2 furlongs 28 yards).— lß subs.

Down Bushes Hill Corrie Roy drew up on the right of Tristan, as did City Arab on the left at the quarters of the latter into the Abingdon Bottom, when the lot closed up, and a desperately-close race ensued, Chippendale winning by a short head from Tristan and City Arab, who ran a dead heat, while Corrie Roy was beaten by a neck only from the pair. Leonora was beaten off.
