" Luminary, on the right, cut out the work at a strong pace from Golden Light and Petersham in tho centre, with Preaent Times at the heels of the last-named, and Melton wide on the left. The other runner, Donatello, soon - turned it up, and had been rolling all ov.er the course before Golden Light and Petersham hung out signals of distress on the top of the hill. At this point Melton and Present Times took close . order with Luminary, and wera apparently galloping over him until a couple of hundred yards from home, when he got rid of Present Times. In the meanwhile Melton was to all appearances comfortably holding the "stranger" into the dip, where the fighting began in earnest, and with Luminary gamely ansv/ering to the final call, after they had almost touched, he won cleverly at last by a head ; a bad third. Donatello was fourth, and Petersham last. Time, 1 mm. 13 l-sth sec. Value of the stakes to the winner, £1600.

Rataplan cut out the work from Dictator, King Solomon, and' Hadramant, with Kismet and Asii leading the others, of whom Purple Emperor acted as whipper-in. This order was maintained at a steady pace for a mile and a half, when Dictator joined Rataplan, and immediately deprived him . of the command, whereupon Rataplan fell back to the' company of Hadramant. 3Trom the corner of the plantation Asil and Dictator came away by themselves, and although the three-year-old swerved slightly in climbing the hill, he forged well ahead, and won by four lengths ; a bad third.
