I'Anson's blk or br c Khartoum, by Gordon— Lectern, 9.0 (F. W. Lane) 0 Betting : 95 to 40 on Isinglass, 11 to 2 agst I Ravensbury, 10 to 1 Phocion, 100 to 6 Self Sacrifice, 33 to 1 Le Nicham.
The flag fell at the first attempt, Khartoum and Self Sacrifice being quickest away from Le Nicham, Phocion, and Glengall, with Isinglass next, and Ravensbury last. As they settled down, , Glengall became second to Khartoum, and the pioneers went up the side clear of Le Nicham , Self Sacrifice, and Phocion, the favourite dropping out just behind Ravensbury. In disappearing from view Self Sacrifice changed places with Le Nicham and while they were out of sight Glengall drew up to the girths of Khartoum. They were level in passing the rifle butts from Self Sacrifice, Phocion, and Le Nicham, while Isinglass still stayed in the wake of Ravensbury. The next quarter of a mile saw the rapid retirement of ■*■ Khartoum, and with his fair comrade at once assuming the command Glengall also went out, and at the Bed House was tailed off in company of the selling plater. Phocion then went on • second from Ravensbury and Isinglass, and clear of these followed Le Nicham. As they reached the half-mile post Phocion was well beaten, and Colling soon afterwards began to ride Self Sacrifice, so that Ravensbury and Isinglass had no difficulty in closing with her. If the favourite had ever wanted some rousing he was now going great guns, and just when Ravensbury looktd like passing Self Sacrifice within a hundred yards, Isinglass, on the whip hand, headed them both. The extra pressure proved too much for Self Sacrifice, and Isinglass came into full view of the goal, running clear of Ravensbury, with Self Sacrifice and Le Nicham in clear pursuit. The next two hundred yards saw a splendid illustration of the superiority of Isinglass, as at the distance he had drawn out a couple of lengths. From this point he was allowed to slow down, and ran home only a halflength winner from Ravensbury, who was a length and a-half in front of Le Nicham. The last-named had passed Self Sacrifice at the commencement of the enclosure, and deprived her of place honours by about two lengths, with Phocion a hundred yards off fifth, and Glengall and Khartoum tailed off. Time, 3inin 13 2-ssec. Value of the stakes, .£5300.
