Place betting ; 6to 4on Goldfield, 5t04 on Balliard, even on each The Prince and St. Blaise/ 3 to 1 agst Highland Chief, 4to } agst Laocoon, and 5 to 1 each agst Splendour and Beau Brummel, . ' ' At the first;, attempt the flag fell to a good start, the lot running in a line for a few strides, -when the contiguity was broken by Sigmophone and Bon-jour, who, under orders to make the running respectively for Goldfield and Ladislas, forced the pace, Bon-jour with a slight advantage of the musical horse, which advantage was increased to several lengths before Sherwood House was reached, at which point Sigmophone in turn was clear of Spleudor, Ladislas, The Prince, and Goldfield, who followed head- and head, with a distinct interval separating them from St. Blaise and Beau Brummel, Highland Chief lying at their neels, and Laocoon bringing up the rear. s»K ep £ thafc ss P le no!or, at the City and tsuTi pos *' d r °PP e d back into the company or. at. Blaise and Dean Brummel, who lost ground going up the bill, no change occurred until reaching the table land after passing the mile post. At this point Bonjour held a lead «iwni "i?^? J en gfchß,g fc hß, but the roaring Sigmophone, choked by the hill, dropped out of the fray, in which he had never been able to fulfil the part assigned him, and speedily dropped fflfttv? th e rear, leaving Ladwlas, the Prmce, Goldfield, ana Splendor the nearest followers

of the leader as the descent to Tattenham Corner commenced ; close \vp with them were St. Blaise and Beau Bruminel, with Highland Chief and Galliard at their quarters. As the turn was made Ladislas, The Prince, Goldfield, and Splendor took a wide birth, and let up St. Blaise on the inside, to his manifest advantage, as, on Bon-jour retiring from the front at the road, he immediately headed Ladislas, who had been left in front for a few strides, and was followed by Goldfield, Galliard (who had also reaped the benefit of tho convenient opening) Ladislas, and Splendor, The Prince here dropping away beaten j while, on , the contrary, Beau Brummel, on the top side, came up apparently full of running, and immediately headed hia stable companion, Splendor, and Ladislas, both now in trouble, while Highland Chief, also going well, drew up *in the track of Galliard. At the distance it looked good odds on Beau Brummel, but he Btopped as if shos, and, with Goldfield, waß out of the race before reaching the site of the old bell, where Galliard challenged St. Blaise, and the issue appeared reduced to a match between the pair. Suddenly, however, the aspect was changed ; Galliard was beaten, and' Highland Chief came with a rush, overhauling the leader at every stride ; but he had shot his bolt half a dozen strides from home, and St. Blaise, running famely on, won a most exciting race by a neck, Kghland Chief defeating Galliard by half a length ; then, three lengths off, came Goldfipld, fourth, with Beau Brummel at hia quarters, clear of Laopoon ; Splendour was next, with the others finishing, at clear intervals, in the order given, Sigm'ophone being beaten off. Time, 2 mm. 48 2-sth sec. Value of the stakes to the winner, £5150.

In a moderate start Padlock jumped off in ' front on the inside, and made play from Oasian and Goldfield, Splendor and Stonecrop followj ing next, and Malibran whipping in. Padlock soon increased his advantage to three or four ' lengths from Ossian and Stonecrop, who, in turn, were as far in front of Splendor, Goldfield,[and Malibran, the lasttwonow'being Cutlet and Energy. After clearing the furzes Stonecrop. and Ossian closed up, and came on, in pursuit of Padlock, and still clear of Malibran, Splendor, and Goldfield. At Tattenham corner Padlock still further increased his advantage, and into the straight was six or eight lengths clear of Goldfield, and although the latter reduced the gap materially in the last r (juaiJter of a mile it was only on sufferance, and in t the end Padlock won easily by three lengths ; Ossian was a very bad third, Energy was fourth, Stonecrop fifth, and the others finished a long, way,.off. , Time' by Benson's chronograph, 2 mm. 13 1-5 sec.

' Mr M'Geoyge despatched them attha first attempt to a beautiful start, in which Keel-row held an advantage over Captive Queen, the next lot being Lilac, Arbafete, Lizzie, and Biserta, with Par'theniu, whipping in. Going fchrpugb the furze bushes, Keel-row went on two lengths clear of Captive Queen, but on taking the top turn Biaerta came up second, followed by Lilac, who on descending the hill held a Blight lead over Keel-row, Biserta, and Parthenia. Taking the bend, ]£eel-row dropped out of the race, and Lilac showed the way into the straight with Bonny Jean, Malibran, Lovely, and Biserta, attended by Rookery and Ettarre, close up. Half-way up the straight Bonny Jean took the lead, and Lilao giving way at the bell let up Malibran and Ettarre, but they could never reach the leader, who won cleverly by two lengths ; a head divided second and third ; Rookery, who was interfered with by Ettarre, and in turn collided with Lovely opposite the enclosure, was fourth ; Lovely fifth, Muriella sixth, Lizzie seventh, Lilac eighth, and Keel-row and Captive Queen last. Time, 2 mm. 53 sec. Value of the stakes to the winner, £3475. THE EPSOM GOLD CUP, Of 500 soys, added to a sweepstakes of 20 soya each ; weight for age \ certain allowances. About a mile and a-half.

Wallenstein made the running at a good pace, followed in single file, and in the order named, by City Arab, Tristan, and Shotover, and they ran thus until entering the furzes, when the lot took cloßer order, and City Arab

closed up with Wallenstein. At the top of the hill the "Arab" drew to the front, and quickly placed a clear gap between himself and Triatan, who passed Wallenstein half-way down the hill. After rounding Tattenham Corner Tristan drew up on the right of City Arab, and, assuming the command at the distance, won with his head in his chest by two lengths ; the other pah* wern ridden hard past the post, and Wallenstein finished a bad third, about a neck in front of Shotover.
