Throstle jumped off in front of None tha Wiser, Matchbox, and Hornbeam, with Legal Tender arid Ladas in their heels and Amiable and Galston the last two. On the outside Legal Tender was soon driven to the head of affairs, and led at the foot of the hill from None the Wiser, Matchbox, and Throstle, behind whom lay Amiable and Ladas. until the favourite became whipper-in. As they dropped out of sight at the Old Alile Post Matchbox joined Legal Tender, and immediately after' wards took a slight lead from Noue the Wiser, third place being taken at the Red House by Hornbeam. Here Legal Tender dropped clean away, and half a-mile from home Matchbox was still iv command from None the Wiser, with Hornbeam and Amiable in immediate attendance, and Ladas fast improving his position on the outside. Rounding the oend Hornbeam was in difficulties, and with None the Wiser unable to hold out any longer she gave way to Ladas, who drew up to the I girths of Matchbox, the pair at the time beiug clear of None the Wiser, Amiable, and Throstle. At the distance Ladas had taken the measure of Matchbox, and forging ahead the race was apparently his even to the commencement of the principal enclosure, when Throstle, who had been creeping up on the whip hand, challenged in earnest. The result was that Ladas could go no faster when called upon to do so, aud with Throstle reachiug him stride by stride she won an exciting race by three parts of a length, two lengths dividing second and third, and half a lengvh third and fourth. None the Wiser was a bad fifth, Hornbeam a worse sixth, and Galston last. Time, 3m in 12Jsec. Value of the stake, £4730.
