The lot were dispatched on good terms, and Queen Adelaide was at once driven to the front, followed by Cambusmore and Perdita 11, Jthose settling down clear of Eastern Emperor, The Sailor Prince, and Old Nobility, with Beaumott last for the first quarter of a mile. Here Queen Adelaide was still leading, with Perdita II and The Sailor Prince in attendance, Cambusmore lying at their heels clear of Boundary and Old Nobility, with Dumbloon and Middlethorpe side by side next, just ia advance of Eastern Emperor and Kilcreene, and Beaumont still in the rear. No further change of importance occurred to the mile-post, where Boundary pulled his way into second place, and took close order with Queen Adelaide, the pair going on e'ear from Perdita |11, Cambusmore, and Old Nobility, with How's That, The Sailor Prince, and Eastern Emperor next, and Prince Rudolph now last, at the heels of Lady Castlpreagh. " Rounding the Canal turn Queen A' 1 -V V waa closely pursued by Cambusmore ana Luuudary, but directly afterwards the latter drew to the front, and was attended by Doubloon, who was clear of Queen Adelaide, Boundary, and Eastern Emperor, with Middlethorpe and Perdita II next, The Sailor Prince heading the others, until entering the straight, when Queen Adelaide, Doubloon, and Boundary dropped away beaten, and Cambusmore rounded the bend closely followed by Eastern Emperor, with Middlethorpe next, and. PerditaJ 11, the Sailor Prince, and Kilcreene most prominent of the others. A quarter of a mile from home Oambusmore held out signals of distress and left the command with the favourite, who, however, was in trouble before reaching the distance, and Middlethorpe came out, hotly pursued by Per.iita 11. and The Sailor Prince. An exciting race home ensued, and Perdita II iust got up in time to make a dead heat ; The Sailor Prince a length off was third, Cambusmore beidg placed fourth. Time, 2min 25sec. The stakes, value £1500, were divided. The accident to Minting on the eve of the Eclipse Stakes was the sensational topic at the clubs the previous night. It appears that after having a good gallop on .Thursday it was discovered that Minting's near foreleg was strained. Sinister rumours were circulated, but ihe certificate rea^s : — " I hereby certify that I have examined Minting by request of R. Vynor. He has strained the flexon tendon on the near foreleg, and has incapacitated himself from running." Many thousand pounds were lost on the horse which since the Two Thousand Guineas and Grand Prix has been the leading favourite.
