In April last Bell's S said of him :-tf v- Reuben is a fine topped colif who had plenty of admirers at the EpW Summer Meeting, and ho is going in grand form. I have a high opinion of thia colt, an d intend to ko°p him in view. Hermitage ran nine times last season, but won only a solitary race, a Nursery Handicap of 100 soys, at Alexandra Park, in which, with the lowest woight up, he beat a field of nineteen. Thi3 year he ran unplaced in the Craven Stakes and Two Thousand Guineas both won by Scot Free. Talisman ran in eight racea last year, without scoring a win ; still some of his performances were so good as to make him somewhat fancied for the Two Thousand Guineas and Derby. For instance, he ran third toQueen Adelaideacd Archidue in the Woodcote Stokes of 1400 soys; third to Superba and Harvester in the Chesterfield Stakes of 890 soys ; second to Sandiway in the Prendergnst Stake 3of 1222 soys ; and second to Archidue in the Criterion Stakes of 930 soya. Talisman was scratched for the Two Thousand Guineas, M. de Rothschild having decided not to run any horses this season before the great Ep_soni meeting, when Talisman was to take part in tho Derby.

St Simon, who was unfortunately disqualified for many of tha great races through tho death of hia nominator. Prince Bathyany, was one of the crack youngstora of last soason, winning everything he started for. These were the Halnaker Stakes of 370 sovs, at Goodwood; Maiden Plate at tho same meeting ; Devonshire Nursery Plate of 489 soys, at Derby ; Prince of Wales Nur> scry Plate of 397 soys, at Doncaster ; and a match for 500 soys with the Duke of Westminister's colt Duke of Richmond. The Ascot Cup has not been won by a three-year-old since Sabinas carried it off in 1870. St Simon was bought at the Prince'a sale for 1600 guineas. Tristan's name has been a household word for the last three or four years, and to give a list of his wonderful series of successes would occupy too much space. Among them, however, may be mentioned the Ascot Cup of last year, the rich Hardwicke Stakes of 1882 and 1883, Ascot Queen's Vase of 1882, Epsom Gold Cup of 1882 and of 1883, and Champion Stakes of 1882 and 1883. Ho ran second to the great American horse Foxhall for the Grand Prix of 1881. Faugh-a-Ballagh won last year the Newmarket Handicap of 300 soys, and a Biennial Plate of 167 soys on the same day ; the Alexandra Plate of 1090 soys, at Ascot, covering the three miles in smin 24 3, 55e0 ; " The Whip," at Newmarket, beating City Arab; and walked over for a match with the Duke of Hamilton's same representative.

In consequence of there being an hour's interval prior to. the race ample time was allowed for the necessary details to be completed, and consequently the numbers and jockeys were exhibited quite twenty minutes before the appointed hour, and the horses were waiting at the post for nearly ten minutes before they were despatched on their .journey.'. Although the Sister to Adelaide colt, Royal Fern, Beauchamp, and Superba wore not saddled in the Birdcage, they joined the others at the start-ing-post in good time. An excellent start was effected, and Harvester was' the 'first to show in advance, having a pQsition in the centre of the course, attended by Scot Free, with Superba and St Medard on the left, Next to those on the left and well up were Sister to Adelaide colt and Royal Fern, whilst the right hand division comprised Beauchamp, Hermitage, and Prince" Rudolph ; but the latter was soon beaten and fell to the rear. When they had travelled about half tho journey Scot Free went on with the lead, attended by Harvester, Superba, St Medard, Royal Fern, and Sister to Adelaido colt, while the rest were now beaten. Coming down Bushes HilJ Scot Free increased his lead, aud was at once followed by St Modard and Harvester, but the favourite bad the best of the contest, and won by five lengths; a head divided second and third, Superba was fouith, Beauchamp fifth, Hermitage sixth, Royal Fern seventh, Sister to Adelaido colt eighth, and Doncaster, Cup last.
