Simon Pure on the inside jumped off with a slight lead of Pillarist, and the pair settled down clear of Her Majesty and Victor Albert, the rearmost; pair being Franciscan and Polydor. Entering the straight in' the' heels of the two leaders, Her Majesty remained there until half way up the straight, when she took advantage of the opportunity of taking her position between the two, with Victor Albert and Aperse following on the right. At the distance Pillarist hung out signals of distress, anil . Her Majesty having waited' to the stand she then made her effort, and won cleverly from Simon Pure by a neck ; three lengths dividing second and third. Time, lmin 20sec.

(Goater) 0 Betting : 5t04. on The Baron, 100 to 14 agst Biridspord, 10 to 1 Martley, 100. to 9 Merry Hampton, 100 to 8 Aintree, 1000 to 45 Blanchland, 50 to 1 Grandison, 50 to 1 Porcelain, 100 to 1 Savile, 200 to 1 Consolide, 200 to 1 Shannon colt. After one or two movements Lord Marcus Beresford caught them well in line, and the start—a good one — was effected without a failure, Porcelain and the Shannon colt, on the right, were the first to show in front, being followed by Aintree, Eiridspord, Blanchland, and The Baron, with Consolide, Martley, and Merry Hampton the whippers-in. Before a quarter of a mile, had been covered the Shannon colt took up the running from Eiridspord, Grandison, and Porcelain, and then came The Baron, Blanchland, and Savile, with the others as they were originally, except that Martley was last. Before passing the mile-post Eiridspord had drawn up to the girths of the Shannon colt, and they rattled along clear of Blanchland, Grrandison, The Baron, Porcelain, and Savile, Aiutree now figuring at the tail end. With Blanchland improving his position on the top of the hill, he obtained a clear command for a few strides as the Shannon colt dropped back. But Eiridspord was on terms again almost immediately, and with the pair racing head and head down the hill, a gap of three or four lengths divided them from Merry Hampton, who had rushed into third place the moment Watts allowed him to do so. The Baron was now in his heels, and pitched so much upon the steepest part of the decline that cries of "The favourite's beat" were raised on every side as they approached .Tattenham Corner. The inside berth here gave Eiridspord the lead from Blanchland, and the pair crossed the road with a reduped advantage of the hard-pulling Merry Hampton, behind whom on the immediate whip-hand was The Baron. Daylight in turn separated the favourite from Martley, Savile, and Aintree, with Porcelain, who had fallen lame, tailed off behind Grandison. More than a quarter of a mile from home Blanchland was in hopeless difficulties, and as Eiridspord could not keep out of the way of Merry Hampton, Watts allowed him to take up the running when he saw that The Baron was beginning to struggle on under the whip. The efforts of the latter carried him into second plape below the distance, as from the moment that Eiridspord was collared be had not an effort left, and resigned to Martley. The race waa now over as far as the first three were concerned, for Merry Hampton had not the least difficulty in resisting one and all of the faint challenges of The Baron, and passed the post an easy winner by four lengths. Martley, who lost second honours by a couple of lengths, was being collared rapidly from the centre of the stand by Aintree, who left off about half a length behind him, with Eiridspord fifth, Savile, sixth, Blanchland seventh, Consolide* eighth, Grandison ninth, Porcelain tenth, and the Shannon colb last.

Maxim made play from Camperdown, Eiridspord, and Salisbury for a quarter of a tnjle, when the Rector drew into second place, Salisbury going on third from Camperdown and Eiridspord, with Chippeway a long way last. On the top of the hill The Rector, on the outside, took a length's lead of Maxim, and they came along clear of Camperdown and Salisbury, who was in tarn separated by a gap from Eiridspord. In this order they entered the straight, but with Maxim and The ' Rector in trouble a quarter of a mile from home, Eiridspord came through in the centre, and, having obtained a good command below the distance, he ran home an easy winner by two lengths from Chippeway, who passed Salisbury opposite the stand and beat him twice as far for second, ,

Jersey Lily, on the outside, was the firafc away, and made play from St. Helen, Fealty, and Lady Mnncaster, with Hawthorn and Luciana next, and Maize last, for a quarter of a mile, when Jersey Lily was passed by Fealty, and Sfc. Helen and Hawthorn drew into third and fourth places, with Reve dOr next in front, of Luoiana'and Freedom, Maize being at the heels of this pair, and Lady Muncaster now last. At the mile post Fealty was showing with a slight lead, of Si Helen, with Hawthorn third, and Jersey Lily and Reve dOr next. Six furlongs from home Fealty drew olear of St. Helen, and Reve' dOr now passed Hawthorn, and took third place, with Luciana, Jersey Lily, and Freedom in a cluster next, and Lady Muncaster still last', St. Helen drew up to Fealty again coming down the hill, with Reve dOr and Hawthorn at their heels, and Freedom and Luciana also close up. Fealty had to beat a retreat before entering the straight, and Sfc. Helen came into line for home with a clear lead of Reve dOr, attending her on the right, and Freedom on the rails. The pair soon drew up to St. Helen, but Freedom was done with half-way up the 'straight, and then Reve dOr quitted Mr Valentine's filly, and won in a canter by three lengths; bad third. Hawthorn was fourth, Fealty fifth, Maize sixth, Luciana seventh, Lady Muncaster next, and Jersey Lily last. Time by Benson's chronograph, 2mm 50 2-ssec.
