' In the line, for home Whitelock,- who "had been creeping up along the bottom, was at v the girths of Castor, and the pair came on. clear of St.. George; Oberon, and Melton, while the vacancies created by the disappearance of Portnellan and Middlethorpe were filled* up ; by Bird of Freedom,, Candlemas, and Harpenden, although they were quite half-a-dozen lengths behind the leaders. . With Castor and St. George in hopeless trouble a quarter of a mile" from home, Whitelock for a few strides assumed the command. Then she resigued to Melton, who in the middle of the course was leffc in front, pulling double,- from Bird of Freedom,' Candlemas, and Oberon, at the same time that Kilcreene began to extricate himself from difficulties. In doing this he was more lucky than > either Harpenden or Andrassy, who were much hampered all the way up the straight and never once had sufficient elboW-room. . Inside the distance the effort of Bird of Freedom to overhaul Melton was of no avail, and dropping Back opposite the stand he gave way to Kilereene, ,who was likewise unable to reach the top. weight; 1 and he | sustained defeat by a couple of lengths.'. At the sametime Kilcreene finished three parts of a length in front of Candlemas, who was driven sharply past the post and thereby secured third money by a head from Oberop, with, Bird of Freedom close up, fifth.
