reach the two leaders, In this she was unsuccessful, and although Petrovna stuck well to her task, she could not get on terms again with Flyaway, and was beaten rather easily by a length, twice as far dividing second and third.

A quarter of a mile from home the leaders were La Nord, Nunthorpß, Dorcas, and L'Abbesse de Jouarre. Soon afterwards Bullion began to catoh Workington again, and as Le Nord and L'Abbesse de Jouarre had shot their bolts, Nunthorpe drew into immediate attendance. What is more, he was now travelling twice as fast as the pair in front of him, and having reached them insido the distanoe, he rapidly established a gap and won in gallant style by three lengths, Bullion scouring second money from Workington by a neck. Time, 2/nin 20sec. Value of the stakes, £1495. -
