The start was delayed through the fractiousness of Frapotel and Vanneau, and during the delay the latter kicked Merry Hampton severely on the leg. The lot were, however, eventually got away on equitable terms, and St. Luc at once cut out the work from Le Sancy, with The Baron .next, just clear of Merry Hampton, and then came Bavarde, Vanneau, Frapotel, and Tenebreuse in the order named, with Monarque bringing up the rear. In this order they ran for six furlongs, when Le Sancy passed St. Luc and Gournay tookthird place, with The Barronfourtb, Merry Hampton fifth, and Bavarde, Tenebreusr, Krakatoa, and Vanneau lying next. Le Sanoy held the lead to within half a mile from the 1 finish, when Tenebreuse on the outside took close order with Le Sancy, the pair being a length in front of the Baron, while in the centre came Krakatoa, Merry Hampton and Bavarde being in hot pursuit. For a few strides Le Sancy maintained his place, but The Baron then succeeded in getting to the front, only in turn to be challenged by Tenebreuse, and between tbe pair an exciting race ensued. Mr Fern's colt momentarily held his own, but Tenebreuse going to the front at the distance immediately put the issue out of doubt, and drawing away won very easily by two lengths ; Krakatoa was third, three lengths off *, and then came Merry Hampton fourth (on sufferance), Bavarde fifth, Frapotel sixth, and the others were beaten off. Time,3min 34sec. Value of the stakes, £5931.
