J?or a few strides the lot ran in an unbroken line, but when they had fairly settled down to work Bendigo, on the left, sailed away to the front, and made the running, followed on his own side by Faugh-a-Ballagh and Don Juan, with Cosmos and Pharamond well up in the centre, and Preferment most prominent of the remainder. Before a quarter of 'a mile had been covered Faugh-a Ballagh was pulled back and Bendigo went on with Cosmos, Pharamond, Preferment, Lizzie, and Ladislas in immediate attendance, and after these came Faugh-a-Ballagh, Don Juan, Sachem, Witchcraft, and Limestone, Sweetbread, Quicklime, and Baliol waiting in the rear. - After coming through Choke-jade, the field, which had hitherto kept very close order, began' to break up, and Ladislas quickly last his place with those who formed the vanguard. As they came across the flat Bendigo still held the command, and came on in advance of Cosmos and Preferment, with Witchcraft, Don Juan, Hackness, Lizzie, and Faugh-a-Ballagh close up next, and Sachem, in company with Pharamond, Tonans, and Sweetbread, following in their immediate wakes, while at the head of the others came Corrie Roy, Girofle, and the stable companions Quicklime and Limestone, the lot being whipoed in by Grenville, Abbotsford, Ladislas, and Flying Squadron, of whom the last named broke down and was tailed off. With but little change they came streaming in the order named past the T. V.C winning-post, but before they had progressed a furlong further on their journey matters had assumed a very different aspect. As they reached the Bushes Bendigo was still playing leading business from Cosmos and Preferment, with Don Juan' and Sachem going wonderfully well next, and Hackuess, with Lizzie and Tonans most prominent of the others, of whom Quicklime, Limestone, Sweetbread, Pharamond, and Preferment were all being very hard ridden in order to make a show even of holding their places. So soon as the descent from the Bushes was commenced the issue was reduced to still more narrow limits by the retirement of Bendigo and Preferment, and a very few strides more sufficed to get to the bottom of Sachem. Thus Cosmoß came down the hill with Don Juan and Hackness in very hot pursuit, the latter being just about clear of Tonans. Aa they entered tha Abingdon Bottom the last-named was done with, and Cosmos was joined by the two favourites, both of whom headed him before they commenced to climb the hill for home. For a few strides it looked as though Hackneas would be more than a match for Don Juan, but, served by his very light weight, the three-year-old kept pounding along to the end, and answering very gamely to every freßh call of his diminutive pilot, he began to forge ahead 150 yards from home, and eventually secured a well-earned verdict by a length ; a similar distance divided the second and third, Cosmos, who occupied the latter position, being threequarters of a length in front of Tonans, who was placed fourth ; Sachem was fifth, about a head in front of Lizzie and Bendigo. Time by Benson's chronograph, 3 mm. 59 3 sth sec, Value of the stakes, £1562.

(J Watts) 0 Betting: Evens on Superba, 15 to 8 agst Busybody, 10 to 1 Royal Fern, 100 to 6 Talisman, 20 to 1 Adelaide filly, 25 to 1 Cambusmore. There waß very little delay at the post, and in a moderate start Royal Fern, on the left, jumped off clear of Busybody and Cambusmore, these in turn being separated by daylight from Superba. In the centre, the Sister to Adelaide filly occupied a prominent position, and on tho right Talisman was laying well up with the leaders. Before reaching the Bushes, Cambusmore and Somerton were done with, and Busybody closing with Royal Fern, came down the hill in cJ*eo attendance, while the Adelaide filly wai <fe" in hot pursuit of them on their right, Sup«t)a, who had momentarily looked dangerous on the crest of the Bushes Hill, being, with Talisman, in trouble in the next few strides. In the dip the Adelaide filly was beaten, and Busybody, challenging Royal Fern, ran the lunger of the pair, and obtaining the advantage half-way up the hill, won a pretty race by half a length; three lengths away frora Air Houldsvvorth's colt came the Adelaide filly, third, a v head in front of Superba, who was placed-iourth, Talisman was fifth, and the other two were beaten off.

Export soon settled down with a long lead, and made fast running from Ossian, Dutch Oven, and Tristan, Faugh a-Ballagh being close up next, and Regain last. They ran thus to the Bushes, where Export was beaten, and with Dutch Oven also in fcr«nhi», Ossian was left in front, and canw ou ft o i. L\ :*ian into the dip, when tho latter took closer order. Watts was compelled to call upon Ossian half way up the hill, and for a moment ho swerved, aud though quickly put straight again ho had allowed Tristan to obtain the advantage, and Webb making the most of it made the best of his way home, and won all out by a length ; a bad third. Faugh-a- Ballagh wa« fourth, close up with the pulling up Dutch Oven, and Export last, beaten off. Time by Benson's chronograph, 2 mm 17 3-sth sec. Value of the stakes, £2265.
