At the turn past the stand Beaver and Fulham had headed St. Michael, who rapidly fell away, being passed m succession by Astrachan, Winter Cherry, and Blue Lias. There was no material change m this order ai the horses ran into the Swinley Bottom, by which t,ime St. Michael had joined Sir Kenneth m the rear. At the Brick Kilns Winter Cherry ran up to Beaver, and, with Fulham close np, the trio came on from Astrachan and Blue Lias. In another 200 yards St. Michael began to improve his position. On rounding the bend into the straight Beaver and Winter Cherry were still together at the head of the others, with Fulham third : but the latter falling away as soon as the horses were fairly m a line for home, St. Michael and Belinda became third and fourth. At the distance Beaver could not keep pace with the rest, and was speedily overtaken by Belinda, Sir Kenneth, and St. Michael, to whom the issue of the race was thenceforth confined. The three named ran for nearly 100 yards m a line, but m the last 50 yards Belinda came out and won a fine race by half: a length ; a neck divided second and third. Time, 3min 45sec.

On the fall of the flag the nine horses ran almost m a line for a couple of hundred yards, after which Riversdale went to the front, attended by the Morgian.i colt, The Sun, Button .Park, with Ariel and Martinet close behind, and Calais last. At the Brick Kilns, the position of the leaders remained unchanged, with the exception that the Morgiana colt drew nearer to Riversdale. Riversdale was leading into the straight, but only just m front of the Morgiana colt and Button Parks, who was still going strongly, with Can Uenu-s next Up the straight an exciting race was run, and it was not until opposite the stand that Riversdale showed signs of being beaten. No sooner did he falter than Button Park and the Morgiana colt became fii-st and second. The three leaders ran gamely, but Riversdale already beaten, could not overhaul the other two, who ran a dead heat for first place, with Riversdale half a length behind. Time, 2 mm 49 sec.
