Place betting : 9to 2 on Donovan, 100 to 60 agst Ohitabob, 2 to 1 each Davenport and Pinzon, 9 to 4 Enthusiast, 5 to 2 Miguel, 5 to 1 L'Abbesße de Jouarre, 6 to 1 Workington, 10 to 1 Lord Lome, 100 to 8 each Scottish Fusilier and Gay Hampton, 33 to 1 Cheroot. The flag fell at the first attempt, and the running was at once made by Cheroot, who was only started to aid his stable companions Pinzon and Workington, The description of the race, however, lies in a nutshell, for Donovan was always in a good position, and although when he began to forge ahead at the bend he was for a moment threatened by Ohitabob, it was but for a moment. The hope of Yorkshire's effort was a terribly brief one, and be dropped back at once beaten, whilst the a 11- conquering Donovan strode on, and cantered home an easy winner by three lengths. Miguel and Davenport, both riden out for placeß, obtained them easily enough; for although Cannon did all he could to get a place with Enthusiast he could only get fourth, just in front of the pulling-up Ohitabob. Donovan's time was 3min 133e0, and the value of the stakes £4860.
