'' After three breaks away the signal was given to a splendid start, and they ran in a line for a hundred yards, when Orvieto took a slight lead of Common, Cuttiestone, Peter Flower, and Bt. Simon of the Rock. At the girths of Peter Flower lay Qouverueur, with RagfmuDda dividing them from Rousseau and Cleator, who on the two extremes jointly whipped in. "Very close order was maintained for half a mile, when Common drew oat in command from Qrviefca

and Peter Flower, and then came St. Simon of the Rock and Gonverneur, who before reaching the Bushes had shaken off Cuttlestone. On the top of the hill Watts was becoming uneasy upon Gouvernenr, who, together with St. Simon of the Rock, lost ground in commencing the descent, at which point Common was sailing along clear of Orvieto and Peter Flower. For the remainder of tfee journey the only fighting was between the last-mentioned pair for second money, as Common continued to set them at defiance, and adding to his command ont of the Abingdon Mile Bottom, won easily by three lengths. The next honours were secured by Orvieto, as Peter Flower hung very much under pressure, and succumbed by three-parts of a length, with St. Simon of the Rock placed fourth, about half a length in advance of the " easing " Gouverneur. At an interval of three lengths Cuttlestone was sixth, being a long way in advance of Ragimunde, with Rosseau last. Time, lmin 47uec. Value of the stakes, £4250. Thursday, Apbil 30.

Btar cut oat the work from Le Nord, on the right, and they were followed by Mons Meg, on the left, with Mark Price heading the others, who were whipped in by Amphion. They ran thus for half a mile, when Le Nord assumed the command from Star, and they went on from Mons Meg, Mark Price, and Rathbeal to the Bushes. Here Star and Rathbeal were in trouble, and in descending the hill Le Nord was caught by Mark Price and Mons Meg, whereupon he melted out of the race. In the meanwhile Amphion had pulled his way up to the heels of the leaders, and sailing past them half way np the hill, he won easily by a length and a-half ; a neck batween second and third. Le Nord was fourth, Rathbeal fifth, and Susiana last. Time, lmin 42 4-sseo. Value of the Btakes, £1000. Fbiday, May 1.

Before reaohing the Bußhes Charm dropped back, and her retirement on the top of the hill was followed by Cereza and Sweetest. In the meanwhile Mimi had cleared Sabra, who also gave way in succession to Melody and Siphonia before entering the Abingdon Mile Bottom^ at whioh- point Belvidera II had drawn level with her stable companion. Upon that position she could not improve, 'and although Melody looked very dangerous after shaking off Siphonia a couple of hundred yards from home she died away towards the tiuisb, and was beaten by a length and a-half; twice as far between second and third. At an interval of a couple of lengths Sabra was fourth, about a neck in advance of Belvidera 11, and a long way off were Charm, Cerezt, Sweetest, Grace Emily, and Bondage, with Gavotte and Minuet tailed off.

The flag did not fall to a good start, and with Alexis, Screech Owl, FitzSimon, Ruatious, and Surefoot forming the front rank, Tedworth, | L'Abbe Morin, Simon da Montfort, and Capsicum were conspicuous in the rear. For Surefoot no excuses can be advanced, and when he began to lose ground three furlongs from home it was either a case of inability or bad temper. Lord Bsterling, who began slowly, bad joined the leadera at this point, and was bidding for the command when the cowardly JPitzSimon cannoned him oat at the bend, leaving Alexis and Rusticus at the head of affairs. All that he could do for the remainder of the journey was to struggle on into fourth place, and with Nunthorpe and Martagon singled ont from below the distance, tha City and Suburban winner stuok to his work so resolutely that he resisted the challenge by 6 head.
