At the distance Jaok o' Lantern led from Rose Window and Ice, these being just clear of Prudence, Castagnette, and Gervas, which batch had hung out signals of distress. So far Rose Window had always been slightly pulling over Jack o' Lantern', and when the three-year-old made a simultaneous effort to reach Ice he got i a shade the best of it, and won by a neck; a head between second and third. C&stagnette was fourth, Prudence fifth, Gervas sixth, Dog Rose seventh, Zoophyte eighth, Dazzle ninth, and Purple Emperor and Isobar the last two. Value of the stakes, £1000.

At the commencement of the rails The Rejected, who had never shown particularly bold, was in trouble, and he gave way in company of Hylton, the pair dropping back to Oberon. The next to compound was Spearmint, and ceasing to persevere he ,left Lisbon in command from Torch; Light, Veracity, Tommy, Tittlemouse, and Tib. The race admits of no further description, as the efforts of Woodburn on the favourite failed in the least degree to trouble Lisbon, who sailed past the post the easiest of winners by a length and a-half, two lengths dividing second and third. Tib was fourth, Tommy Tittlemouse fifth, Hylton sixth, The Rejected seventh, Oberon eighth, Hugo ninth, and Spearmint last. NEWMARKET SPRING MEETING. Tuesday, May 1. HASTINGS PLATE, .

The favour* i ite showed the way to Orbit as they cantered up the course to the post, then the six, running jin couples, of which Crowberry and Ossory, who 'carried a black belt, were the second pair, then coming Ayrshire and Johnny Morgan, F, Barrett wearing the second colours of the Duke of Portland. Rain was falling as the half-dozen ranged themselves at the post, but anticipation was not long on tiptoe before the flag fell. Johnny Morgan was first away, closely attended by Ossory on the left, and Ayrshire on the right, next coming Orbit on the stand side, with Friar's Balsam in the centre, and Crowberry, wide on the right, last. At a good pace Johnny Morgan piloted his field for a couple of furlongs, when Ossory and Ayrshire were his attendants, while Friar's Balsam

{■ and * Crowberry were still' last.' • As " they I approached , the bushes Ossory was in trouble, .'while Barrett was > sending- Johnny Morgan along, but was not -uneasy on him. At the top i of the hill Friars- Balsam was in trouble, and Johnny Morgan was followed by Ayrshire, who came down the hill attended by Orbit, with Crowberry next on the right. From this point the race was over, as Ayrshire, drawing- away, was clear in the dip, and, going on, won easily by tw,o lengths from his stable companion. Orbit, running on, finished third, a head behind •the latter. Crowberry was, fourth, Friar's Balsam fifth, and. Ouqry last. Time, lmiri 521-sthseo. Value of stakes, £3550.
