Place Betting (1, 2, 3) : 6to 1 on Isinglass, - evens on Raeburn, 11 to 8 agst William, 7 to 4 Irish Wake and Ravensbury, 4 to 1 Dame President and Son of a Gun, 10 to 1 the rest. ODly one actual false start, in which Dame President and Ravensbury hung back, preceded the giving of the Bignal. Lord William at once went to the front from Royal Harry, Raeburn, William, and Irish Wake, with Son of a Gun, Peppercorn, and Isinglass -{who started slowly) next, and Ravensbury and Dame President the whippe'rs-in. As they passed Sherwood's Lord William increased the lead to half a dozen lengths, his stable companion William going on second from Quickly Wise, Peppercorn, and Royal Harry, and just behind these lay Raeburn, Son of a Gun, Dame President, and Isinglass, who left Rayensbury in the rear. Enter* .ing the furzes, Isinglass had^argned to his _ work, and drew into v immediate attendance upon Lord William, with William and Raeburn now dividing the leaders from Irish Wake, Colonel North's - pair, and Peppercorn in a cluster, Son of a Gnn dropping, back to the companionship of Ravensbory. Driven' hard to the top of the .hill Lord William had -then 'shot his bolt, and William took dp the running from Raeburn, Isinglass, and Royal Harry; and daylight here separated them from Irish Wake, Peppercorn, and Son of a Gun, with William tailing off at every stride. Half way down th descent 'William was headed by Raeburn _an p, Isinglass, of whom the former, in rounding-Tat-tenham Corner, swung a little wide and enabled Isinglass to both secure the inside beith and a slight advantage. The pair crossed the road head and head from Royal Harry and Peppercorn, and with William, Irish Wake, and Quickly Wise well beaten, they resigned in quick succession to Ravensbury. So far, however,' the last-named was not becoming .dangerous, and the first roar of excitement was heard when, with Raebnrn abont a neck to the good rather more than a quarter of a mile, Loates picked up his whip. The application produced an instantaneous effect, for the favourite at once shot to the fore; and was clearing Baebnrn at every stride to the Bell when Ravensbury challenged for second place. This he gradually obtained, and in the meanwhile with Isinglass kept going to the end he , won a good race by a length and a half, Raeburn in turn losing second money by a couple of lengths. Peppercorn'was a long way off fonrth, Quickly' Wise fifth, and Royal Harry sixth, these being well clear of Irish Wake, Son of a Gun, and Dame President, with William last, as Mullen's saddle girths' broke just before entering the straight and be' was pitched out of the saddle. Time, 2min 43see. Value of the stakes, £5455.'

' " ! Royal Harry was passeda quarter of a' mile from home by Harbinger and Raeburo, "Tanderagee coming ''out of' their heels and Maltravers looking dangerous. After being ridden at tbe distance to wear down Harbinger, which he just succeeded in doing, the favourite was challenged by Tanderagee, who drew ahead opposite the stand and won by two lengths; half as far between second and third.

owed by" Arriere Pensee, Consie, Sal Volatile, and Stirrup Cup, the last two being Cypria and Erin. Before reaching Sherwood's Arriere Pensee had assumed the command from Marietta, and Stirrup Cup then took third place from Tintara, Silene, Sal Volatile, and Gill Beck, and in their wake came Mrs Butterwick, Treßsure, and Sal Volatile, while Erin and Cypria remained in the rear. At the mile post Stirrup Cup took up the running from Evermore, Marietta, and Arriere Pensee, and they now drew clear of Tintara, Silene, Main, l'ressure, and Consie, with Sal Volatile and Minting Queen dropping back to Erin, and Cypria falling into the ruok. At the top of the hill Marietta and Evermore were racing with Stirrup Cup, and they "commenced the descent immediately in front of Tressure, Arriere Fensee, Tintara, Consie, and Silene. As they rounded Tattenham Corner the inside berth favoured Stirrup Cup, who came over the road about a length in front of Evermore and Marietta, their successors at this point being Tressure, in the centre, and Silene, Mrs Butterwiek, Tintara, Arriere Pensee, and Cypria, in close company. The first of the leaders to vanish were Evermore and Marietta, and when Tressure challenged Stirrup Cup a quarter of a" mile from home they quickly changed places. In the meanwhile Silene, Mrs Butterwiek, and Cypria were actively keeping up the pursuit, and having taken second place below the distance, Mrs Butterwiek soon closed with Tressure, whom she headed 200 yds from home, and won a good race by half a length ; six lengths between second and third. Silene was fourth, just clear of Cypria, with Stirrup Cup fifth, Tintara sixth, Affluence seventh, Marietta eighth, Sal Volatile ninth, Minting Queen tenth, Erin eleventh, Consie twelfth, and Gill Beck and Evermore the last two, except Main, who trotted past the post. Time, 2min 44 4-ssec. Value of the stakes, £4150.
