Impatient made play, followed by Tardif, the pair being a couple of lengths in front of Athala, Precy, and Boulevavdier, who headed the others, Althea and Cafe Procope whipping in. Little alteration occurred in this order for a quarter of a mile, when Etoile came out full of running and went to the front, but bolted and took the wrong course. Sapeur then went to the head of affairs with Precj r next on the rails, and Issy on the outside, Athala, Missy, and Aida all being in close attendance. A quarter of a mile from home Precy challenged Sapeur, and Missy took third place, with Althala and Issy next. A close fininh ensued, between the leading pair, but Precy managed to secure the verdict cleverly by a neck ; four lengths divided second and third, and a length and a half the third and fourth, Athala being in the latter position. Sapeur was fifth, about a length and a half further away, and Issy sixth, Cafe Procope seventh, and Boulevardier last. Time by Benson's chronograph, 2mm 35 sec. Value of stakes, £1096. THE GREAT YORKSHIRE HANDICAP, Of 25 boys each, with 5(10 soys added. St. Leger course (1 mile (5 turlongs 132 yards). Mr Lowthpr's eh c King Monmouth, by King Lvd — Miss Somerset, 3 yrs, 7st 131b (J.

At the second attempt the signal was given, and Sandiway on the outside soon made clear running from Ben Alder, Lawminster, and See See, with Master Sam and Grecian Bride next, and Crom-a-boo last. In these positions they travelled for a quarter of a mile, when Sandiway was gradually pulled back, and Ben Alder went on from Lawmiuster, See See, and Grecian Bride, the last three now being Somerton, Sandiway, and King Monmouth. Over the hill Ben Alder widened the command from Lawminster, who drew up to his girths again at the rifle butts, with Master Sam and See See side by side in attendance, and King Monmouth and Sandiway at the tail end, until five furlongs from homo, when Grecian Bride dropped behind them. With Lawminster in trouble half a mile from home, Master Sam went on second, and Sandiway drew into third place, with King Monmouth next. At the bend Master Sam was slightly leading from Ben Alder, and Sandiway was going well in their track to below the distance, when King Monmouth drew up on their right. In the fighting work that ensued from this point Master Sam collapsed, and with the weight immediately afterwards telling upon Sandiway, the favourite came out and won easily from Ben Alder by three-parts of a length, two lengths dividing second and third. Time, 3 mm. 17 1-5 sec. THE ST. LEGER STAKES, Of 25 soys, for fclu-ee-year-olds ; colts Pst, fdlies Bst lllb; second received 200 soys, and third 100 soys out of the stakes.

(J Watts) 0 Betting: 95 to 40 on Melton, 10 to 1 agst Isobar, 10 to 1 Lonely, 100 to 7 St. Helena, 33 to 1 Farewell, 50 to 1 Ducat, 50 to 1 Dame Agnes. After one failure, in which Lonely and Melton were on their toes, the flag fell to an excellent start, as Lord Beresford had caught the whole lot in action before Wastdale stopped and turned his head the wrong way. Melton, on the outside, held a slight lead of Dunbridge, St. Helena, Swillington, and Farewell for a hundred yards, when he was gradually eased, and Dnnbridge took up the running from Farewell, St. Helena, and Swillington. They were followed over the road by Lonely, Ducat, and Isobar, with Melton now the whipper-in, just behind Dame Agnes. Alth'ongh Farewell took close order when three furlongs had been completed, Dunbridge drew clear again as they rose the hill, Lonely and Ducat going on third and fourth from ''&fc. Hpjena, vftile Swillington had Keen pulled up through the breakage of a blow-
vessel. During the few seconds the reduced field was lost to view Dunbridge had established a two-lengths' lead from Farewell and Lonelyj who were in turn twice as far ahead of Ducat and St. Helena, the favourite continuing to take matters quietly at the tail end. As they passed the rifle butts Dunbridge began to tire, and Farewell soon afterwards took up the running, with Lonely in attendance, all the others closing up at the Red House except the Danebury colt, who was now completely spun out. A little more than half a mile from home Farewell had shot her bolt, and with the disappearance of the yellow jacket Lonely was left in possession from St. Helena, the pair going on in close company in front of Ducat and Melton, the latter being on the whip hand. In nearing the bend Lonely and St. Helena steered out to avoid the new ground, whereupon Archer cut in behind them, and then putting in some big work for a few strides, his head was in front of Lonely when they made the intake turn. The quickening of the pace immediately disposed of St. Helena and Ducat, and Melton had drawn a couple of lengths away from Lonely, when Isobar went up to the latter full of running below the distance. The moment that Archer caught sight of Isobar he pricked Melton with his spur, whereupon the favourite instantly took all the steam out of the Stanton representative, and galloping on to the end won in grand style by six lengths; Lonely was a bad third, St. Helena a worse fourth, Dame Agnes fifth, Ducat sixth, and Farewell seventh, while Dunbridge walked in last. Time by Benson's chronograph, 3 mm. 15 3-5 sec. Value of the stakes, £4825. THE PORTLAND PLATE, Of 500 soys, added to a Handicap Sweepstakes of 10 soys. each. Five furlongs 152 yards.

Duke of Richmond jumped off on the inside from Broxbourne, Dalmeny, Mallow, and Kingwood. The second lot consisted of Bonnie Lassie, Hurry, and Debenture until approaching the bend, when Duke of Richmond, who was galloping in the most ungenerous manner, was joined by Broxbourne. The pair then came on from Debenture until fairly in the line for home, when " the Duke," who was hanging from the rails, closed accounts. The next to drop back was Kingwood, and when Broxbourne had shaken off Debenture he looked all over the winner, as there did not seem sufficient room for Dalmeny to creep up on the inside. Still Martin continued to persevere, and snatching an adv mtage in the last two strides, he won by a neck, while Insignia, who dropped from the clouds opposite the stand, made a dead heat for second place. Maria Renata was fourth.
