Loates) 0 Betting : sto 1 agstßaconteur and Le V«r, 100 to 15 Liveno. 7 to 1 The Owl, 9 to 1 Sol iro and Sir Visto, 100 to 8 Kirkconnel and Slow Step, 25 to 1 Beekhampton, 33 to! <urzoD, 50 t-i I Villiers, 66 to 1 Gal> pian and lhe Brook, and 100 to 1 Chibiabof and Salvington. They were despatched to a good start, Laveno, Chibiabos, Slow Slcp, and Solavo cutting out the work from Lo Var, The Owl, Beckhampton, The Brook, and Cuizon, with Kirkconnel, Raconteur, and >-ir Visto next, and Salvington last. There was plenty of settling down in the first qu irter of a mile, and as they passed Sherwooa's House Chibiabos had taken up the ruuning from Backbampton, Solaro, L-iVeno, &low Step, and The Brook. Daylight divided these from Le Var, The j Owl, Villiers, Raconteur, and Kirkconnel, with j Salvington, still whipping in, a lor>g way behind Sir Visto. Soon, after reaching the mile-post Chi! iabos was joined by The Brook and Beckhamplon, and on the top of the hill they were jutt clear of Laveno, Sulaio, Slow Step, The Owl, and Villiers. Then came Kiikconnel and Curzon, while Le Vtu, hard ridden at this point, dropped bark in making the descent until ho was only level with Sir Visto' at the tail end, except for Salviogfon, who was a couple of hundred yaids astern. Soon afterw rds Chibiabos beat a rapid retreat, and in roumlin? Tatteuham Coruer The Brook held a sl'ght command from Beckatnpton, Solaro, and The Owl, these bsing followed by Raconteur, Kirkconnel, Laveuo, and Curzon. As soon as they were in the line for home The Brook vanished from the front, and with Beckhampton now in clear potse»sion Curzon, who had saved a lot of ground by sticking to the rails, drew into second piece from Solaro, Villieis, lUconteur, and Kirkc'mnel. They ran so until within a quarter of a mile from home, when BscUhampton was challenged right and left by Kirkconnel and Curzon, and at^the same time Villiers and The Owl dropped away from Solaro and Raconteur. The last-named, together with Beckhampton, i •was beaten below the dislanct*, aud here Curzon held a slight advantage of Kirkconoel, with : Soliro struggling in pursuit, at the same time tha- Le Var tried in vain to reach the leaders in | thd centre, while Sir Visto was stealing up almost un bserved on the top iide. Before reachiug the centre of the stand Kirkconnel made a filial effort to reach Curzon, which proved unsuccessful ; but it -was altogether different with Sir Visto, who was now travelling as fast again as tho two leaders, and reaching them 50yde from home he went on and won an ex.-ii ing race by three-parts of a length.; half a length between tecond and j third. Solaro was fourth (p l aced by the judge), Beckhampton fifth, Lo Var sixth, Raconteur j seventh, Slow Step eighth, Villiers ninth, The Owl tenth, Laveno eleventh, Galopian twelfth, and The Brook, with Chibiabos and Salvington, bcatei nearly a quarter of a mile, in the order named.
