The pace, it is needless to mention, was strong from the fall of the flag, and with Ratton soon taking a clear lead, his immediate followers, upon settling down, were Screech Owl, Bel Demonio, The Imp, Philomel, and Galway, the tail consisting of Vasistas, Snaar, Llewellyn, and Danbydale. The prominence shown by Philomel, and the ease with which she seemed to maintain her position, was a reminder that Minting two years ago always kept in the first flight, and until approaching the bend her admirers were on rare terms with themselves. Then she went out like the snuff of a candle, and from the entrance to the straight, where Ratton and Screech Owl begaa to compound, Bel Demonio, The Imp, Amphioß, and Galway composed the vanguard, with Laureate, Theophilus, and Vasistas closing up. Of the two top-weights, Ampbion and Laureate, the former made the biggest bid, and before he gave way at the distance he had both collared and slightly headed The Imp for a few strides. The finish was none the less keen and exciting because Amphion could not last to the bitter end, as with Galway battling stoutly on the right of The Imp, and Theophilus and Vasistas on his left, the shouts and counter-shouts rose to a deafening pitch. The nearer the goal the closer did the four get together, and Theophilus had actually gained an advantage before he sue* cumbed to The Imp by a head in the very last stride. Time, lmin 49 4-5360^; •
