At the second attempt the lot were dispatched upon their journey in first-rate order, and within two minutes of the time appointed for the race. The first two to break the line were Montroyd and Highland Chief, on the left, but before they had covered 50 yards Auctioneer, on the stand side, daßhed past like a shot of a gun ? and made the running, attended on his whip hand by Montroyd, who in turn was just clear of Goldfield and The Prince, while on his left came Highland Chief, Ganimede, and Galliard, clear of Grandmaster, and then stretching away to the extreme right came Chislehurst, Export, St. Blaise, and Padlock, all well up with the leaders, svhile, on the other hand, Hamako, Modred, and Bon-jour were soon conspicuous in the rear, with Martin making every post a winning-post. Auctioneer had not gone a quarter of a-mile before he had placed a gap of at least adozen lengths between himself and Montroyd, who was attended across the flat by Goldfield, the Prince still on his right, and Highland Chief and Grandmaster on his left, Gilliard and Ganimede having by this time been pulled back. Far away on the right Chislehurst and St. Blaise were still most prominent, but Export soon lost his place, and dropped back into the company of Hamako, Modrid, and Bon-jour in tho rear. Before reaching the T.Y.C. winningpost Auctioneer began to hold out signals of ! distress, and soon after passing that landmark was headed by Montroyd, but he in turn had shot his bolt when the Bushes were reached, aud by this time Grandmaster, Ganimede, and Padlock had disappeared from the front rank. As they commenced the descent from the Bushes Galliard carried his colours to the front, and was closely attended by Goldfield and The Prince, with Highland Chief next on the Btand side, and St. Blaise now in front of Chislehurst on the judge's side. The three leaders raced pretty well together until half-way down the hill, when Cannon shot his horse to the front, and Goldfield held an advantage of a neck into the Abingdon dip, where Highland Chief was beaten, and St. Blaise had also had enough of it. As the trio began to climb the hill for home Galliard once more drew up level with Goldfield, and The Prince made his effort between the pair. A magnificent race now ensued, and a desperate finish was declared ' in favour of Galliard by a head from Goldfield, who in turn was a neck only in advance of the Prince. About a couple of lengths away St. Blaise was fourth, clear of Chislehurst, fifth ; Highland Chief was sixth ; Auctioneer, Montroyd, and Grandmaster next, and the last three were Hamako, Modred, and Bon-jour.

There was no delay at the post, and the flag fell to a good start at the first attempt. The positions of the nine competitors at the start were as follow :— Wide on the right, by herself, was Lady Brooke, with Ettarre and Biserta next ; in the centre were Hauteur, Consuelo, and Malibran ; and on the left Golspie, Britomartis, and Lovely. Directly the signal was given Cousuelo showed with the lead, and made the running from Biserta and Lady Brooke, with Hauteur and Malibran close up in the centre, and Golspie and Britomartis in front of Lovely on the stand side, the rear being brought up by Ettarre. After running half-way Consuelo retired, and Biserta assumed the command, attended by Lady Brooke, who still held an isolated position on the right, Malibran and Hauteur in the middle, and Britomartis and Lovely on the left, Golspie now having dropped back last, while Ettarre was gradually closing with the leading lot. At the Bushes Lady Brooke and Biserta retired, and Britomartis camo down the hill witn a slight advantage of Lovely, Malibran, and Hauteur, who were as nearly as possible in a line, and just clear of Ettarre. In the dip Britomartis was done with, and with Ettarre in a similar plight, the issue was left to the three placed. Of these Lovely assumed a slight lead as the ascent was commenced out of the Abingdon Bottom, but halfway up the hill Bhe was challenged by Malibran and Hauteur, and after a grand raco between the three the favourite obtained the advantage
in the last few strides, and won by a head from Malibran, who, in turn, was a similar distance in advance of Lovely. Ettarre was fourth, just in front of Britomartis, and Biseita sixth, the remainder, who were tailed off, being whipped in by Golspie. Time, by Benson'ri chronograph, 1 mm. 52 4-sth sees. Value of the stakes, £3200.
