At the turn of the lands Plaisanterie and Duke of Richmond were almost side by side in front, and were followed by St. Gatien, Thebaip, Clochette, and Caltha, the same pair being still in front at the Criterion_startirig-pQst f by which time Bendigo had made his way into the next division, amongst whom were Barberine, Cohort, Prism, Isobar, and Eastern Emperor..

Soonafter Prism was beaten, and Isobar and Barberine had had enough, leaving Caltha, Eastern Emperor, Bendigo, and St. Gatien in pursuit of the leader. The last-named, howeverl was never approached,'and won very easily by a couple of lengths, while a fine race ensued for second place, which Bendigo gained by a neck from, Eastern Emperor ; Caltha was fourth, the same distance behind the latter, and a head in 'front of St. Gatien, who was clear of- 'Clochette, sixth, Thebais seventh, Prism eighth, 1 !
