The horses liau uo sooner formed in line than Doubloon began to play some tricks, and was the main cause of three or four breaks away. Ultimately they were started without him, and Silver Crown on the right jumped off with a strong lead of Present Times, Ordovix, Gargouille, and Scherzo in the centre. These were followed on the other side by Beitzmer and Campanile, a long way clear of Highland Chief, ,^Tainbletonian, and Dartmouth, with Red Ruin '■■^rad Lorgnette lying in the heels of Present Times. Neither Highland Chief nor Hambletonian had the least chance of joining the front rank, and with Silver Crown tacking to the centre of the course he came down the hill in advance of Gargouille, Present Times, Ordovix, Scherzo, and Beifczmer. As they rose out of the Abingdom Mile Bottom, Present Times and Beitzmer dropped away, and with Silver Crown challenged simultaneously by Scherzo and Gargouille, he won a good race from the latter by a length; twice as far separating second and third. Ordovix was fourth. THE RIDDLESWOUTH, A post sweepstakes of 200sovs each, for three-year-olds—colts 9st, Allies Bst lllb—with certain allowances. D.M. Four subs.

Atheliug on the right jumped off in front, and soon held a clear lead of Bellona, Greenwich, Farewell, and Le Caissier. These were followed by War Path, Eastern Emperor, Onesto, and Hanibletonian, with Coruuna and Lucerne bringing up the rear until half way across the flut, when Hambletonian improved his position on the left, as did Lucerne in the centre. Before reaching the Bushes Hill the lead of Atheling was much diminished, and Greenwich, Farewell, Hambletonian, Eastern Emperor, and Lucerne followed him until half way down the hill, when Farewell retired. In another fifty yards Wood had sent Hambletonian along, and giving his opponents no quarter the favourite won easily by three lengths from Greenwich ; a head between second and third. Atheling was fourth, Lucerne fifth, Onesto sixth, Farewell seventh, and Bellona and Corunna the last two. Time, lmin 46 l-sth sec.

Little Wenlock, in the centre, made play from St. Michael, the pair being followed by Braw Lass and the Wood Anemone filly on the right. These were followed by Calais on the left, and behind him came Grey Friars, Volta, and i Exmoor, with Koster bringing up the rear. This order was maintained to the red p^st, where Little Wenlock and the Wood Anemone filly vanished ; aud Braw Lass took up the running from Calais, Grey Friars, and Volfca, who quickly got rid of St. Michael. Long before reaching the distance Braw Lass was well beaten, and Calais then went on until a couple of hundred yards from home, when he was passed by Grey Friars and Volta, of whom the latter made a very game although unsuccessful effort to roach the grey, and was defeated cleverly by half a length ; two lengths- separating second and third.

The start was delayed by the bolting of Cravate, who ultimately left the post in attendance upon Bellona, the latter having soon acquired a long lead. They were followed by Red Ruin, Raffaello, and Arcadian, behind whom came Sir Kenneth and King Monmouth, with Althorp in the rear. This order was maintained to the T.Y.C. winning-post, when Cravate disappeared, aud Belloua carried on the runuing from King Monmouth, Raffaello, and Arcadian, with Red Ruin and Sir Kenneth the next pair. At the Bushes Arcadian was well beaten, and King Monmouth having deprived Bellona of the command, they came down the hill four or five lengths ahead of Sir Kenneth and Raffaello. In the Abingdon Mile Bottom Sir Kenneth had worked his way into second place, and creeping up to King Monmouth at almost every stride he caught him fifty yards from the chair, and won an exciting race by three parts of a length. Bellona was a bad third.
