(F Archer) 0 Betting : 85 -to 40 agst Busybody, 5 to 2 Sandiway, 9 to 2 Whitelock, 6 to 1 Queen Adelaide, 100 to 7 Wild Thyme, 50 to 1 Legacy. The .flag fell at the first attempt, and Legacy, in the centre of the course, immediately drew to the front and made slow running clear of Sandiway and Busybody on the left. Whitelock, who was on the immediate whip hand of Legacy, divided the three leaders from Queen Adelaide and Wild Thyme to the Bushes, when the lot almost formed into line. The first to give way was Wild Thyme, and as they commenced the descent of the hill Whitelock took a slight lead of Queen Adelaide, Busybody, and Sandiway, and with the steam now turned on in earnest, they qnickly shook off* Legacy. Before entering the Abingdon Mile bottom, Queen Adelaide had a neck the best of it, and was pulling so hard that Cannon at once pushed Busybody to the head of affairs, and quickly, settled Sandiway. The next one to die out was Whitelock, and with a pretty race to the end between the other two. Busybody won cleverly at the finish by half a length ; the Queen beating Lord Bradford's filly as far again for second place. Sandiway was just clear of Whitelock, and the other two, who did not persevere in the last furlong, cantered home side by side. Time by Benson's chronograph, 1 mm. 47 sec. Gross value of the stakes, £3300.
