Bucephalus jumped off clear of Toussaint on the left, who seemed to be a little "sideways." The pair settled down first and second from The Winter King iv the centre, and on the right St. Frusquin came on from Love Wisely. Labrador, and Dynamo in the order named. The pace was very slow across the flat, and long before reaching the bushes St. Fruaquin took up the running from The Winter King and Love Wisely, the trio coming down the hill clear of the others, of whom Labrador had been ridden hard for a long way. Before entering the Abiugdon Mile Bottom The Winter King collapsed, and in the meanwhile Love Wisely drew up to the girths of St. Frusquin, and for a few strides Loates was driving him with his hands. This proved quite sufficient, as In climbing the hill St. Frusquin forged ahead until he won very easily at last by three lengths, [ with Labrador, although ridden out to the end, aB far behind the Manton representative. Dynamo was a bad fourth, Bucephalus fifth, and The Winter King last. Time, lmin 433-Baec. Value of. tta stake* $4ffl.
