SANDOWN PARK SECOND. Fbipay, July 27.

T. Cannon rode Orbit in the Eclipse Stakes, The start was a' good one, and for a few strides Patchouli headed the line, but when they had fairly settled into their stride Ossory assumed the- lead, followed by Estafette, Patchouli, Martley, and The Baron, this quartette lying in close ©rder clear of Orbit, Florentine, and Derwentwater, while the rear division comprised Eiridspord, Love in Idleness, and Bright ; Star, After a little over three furlongs had been negotiated Ossory was well clear of Patchouli, who here heading Estafette took second place, while Orbit drew into fourth position clear of Eiridspord, with whom were racing Martley and The Baron, followed side by side by Enterprise and Florentine, the next pair being Love in Idleness and Derwentwater, while Bright Star now acted as whipper-in. Passing the members' entrance Orbit took third place to Ossory and Patchouli, Estafette dropping back two lengths behind the favourite, in company with' Eiridspord, the pair lying clear of Martley and The Baron, who were here joined by Enterprise, with Florentine in the latter's track. Commence ing to round the turn Ossery had gained a good three lengths' lead of his stable companion, who took second place, Patchouli going on third, just clear of Enterprise, Eiridspord, and Estafette, with The Baron and Martley next, heading Florentine and Derwentwater, the rear being still brought up by Bright Star. As they entered the line for home Patchouli dropped out of it, and Orbit took close order with Ossory, while Eiridspord, heading Enterprise and Estafette, became third, with Martley and The Baron next— Florentine, Derwentwater, Nina, and Patchouli being now beaten. Approaching the commencement of the rails, Eiridspord, The Baron, and Enterprise were in difficulties, Orbit and Ossory, who were racing together, coming on followed by Martley, who here took third place on the outside, in front of Love in Idleness, while Estafette, on the right, began to close up. At the distance' Martley, who for a few. strides had -threatened danger, and Love in Idleness were both beaten, and the issue' was left to the Kingsclere pair! With a final effort, in -answer to Cannon's callj Orbit fairly headed his stable cdtnpanion somr 100 yds from home. {'Having at length attained the advantage, the favourite gradually increased it, and' amidst the' gteateat excitement, tron a grand race by a length from Ossory. Martley, who struggled on, was beaten a similar distance for third place,' while Eatafettej passing Loveifl

Idleness in the last few strides, was fourth, close i op. Then some 20 lengths away came Enter- I prise sixth, six lengths in front of Bright Star I seventh.

Before reaching the distance Helmsley was beaten, and Tib took secoud place with a clear lead of Satiety, who lay third on the right. At this point Bismarck, having now increased his lead to some eight lengths, had fairly spreadeagled his field, but shortly after passing the commencement of the lawn railings Bismarck moved right across the course on to the rails, and Tib coming up stride by stride caught him before he could be got straight, and though he came again he could not quite collar Tib, who won an exciting race by a head.

Half-way down the hill Sandal retired, and Pull Together came on with a slight lead of Dante, Lisbon now taking 'third place on the rails, while Candlemas began to close up at the heels of Spot. The latter was* beaten two distances from home, and at the distance Pull Together was in trouble, aud Dante, in the centre, came on, challenged by Lisbon on the right aud Candlemas on the stand side, and the latter, coming with one run, had his opponents beaten 50yds from home, and won a fine race by a length and a-half. Time, 2min 25 4-5 th sec. Value of the stakes, £517. Thursday, August 2. goodwood cup, Value 3008OVS, added to a sweepstake of 20sovs each, h ft ; half the sweepstakes to go to the second Two miles and a-half.

(J Watts) 0 Betting : 13 to 8 agst Timothy, 9to 4 Rada, 8 to 1 Exmoor, and 100 to 8 Osric. Osric, on the rails, drew in front when they had fairly settled down, with Exmoor next on the right, heading Rada, who lay at Osric' s heels, but after l , going 100 yds Osrio held a couple of lengths' lead of Rada, Timothy lying next, while Exmoor, on the outside, whipped in. At a strong pace Osric led his field up the straight, and when turning out of the straight had increased his lead to three lengths, the other three keeping their relative positions. Sweeping along the course to the mile-post Osric forged further ahead, and as they made the turn was a good six lengths in front of R&da, who held a similar advantage of Timothy as they disappeared behind the shoulder of the hill. The ascent told its tale on Exmoor, who when they came in sight had lost a lot of ground, and was toiling 20 lengths in the rear, while Kada had run up to within a couple of lengths of Osric and Timothy, who was being sent along, was about that distance behind Lord Falmouth's filly. As they neared the summit of the rise Oscar suddenly collapsed, and before turning into the straight was headed by Rada, who was striding along at her ease, while Timothy ran up to her quarters, the pair drawing clean away. Half-way down the hill Timothy was struggling under difficulties, and could not keep his place with Rada, who, hard held, gradually stole away, and, coming on with the race in hand, won, amidst a burst of cheering, by 15 lengths ; O3ric, who passed the drawing-up Timothy, gained the barren honour of second place, while Exmoor, 50 lengths behind, was last,. Time, 4nim4ssec. Value of the stakes, £390. Friday, August 3.

Fealty was the first to crack, and lost his place at the distance, whence, amidst the greatest excitement, the other pair came on, and though Clan Chattan struggled gamely, Steurhead had always slightly the best of a rattling finish, and won a splendid race by a neck; Fealty, two lengths off, was third. Then came Chippeway fourth, Tissaphernes, six lengths behind the latter, was fifth, Saviie sixth, followed at an interval by Spice, Sorrento next, heading Spud and Osmnnda, while Jacob trotted in last. Time, smin 11 4-ssee. Value of the stakes, £530.
