After four or Tive unimportant breaks away, in which Gulistan was inclined to hang fire, Mr Coventry lowered his flag, Toueßaint, on the outside, showing slightly in front of Bradwardine for a hundred yards, when Bay Ronald took up the running. He was followed by Bradwaidine and Tamarind, from Earwiz, Spook, Gulistan, Teufel, and Toussaint, with Knight of the Thistle next and Sb. Frusquin
and Persimmon the last two.

On the top of the hill Gulistan was only main* taining his position under pressure, and commenoing the descent he resigned to Bradwardine, St. Frusquin, Bay Ronald, and Teufel, and was also passed half-way down by" Persimmon anj Spook. Before rounding Tattonham Corner Bradwardine lost hi 3 place, and left Bay Ronald and St. Frmquin side by side, with Persimmon dawing up third from Teufel and Spook, and Bradwardine remaining at the head of the others, More than a quarter of a mile from borne Bay Ronald and Tcufal were in hopeless difficulties, diid the isuie at onco resolved itself into a match between St. Fruiquin and Persimmon. As th« latter drew up to the quarters of Sb. Frusquin he was palpably going the faster, and with rare patience Watts delayed his effort until inside tho distaace. He then set Persimmon going in earnest, and having obtained a silent advantage; a hundred yards from home he kept it up to the end, and won a fine race by a neck, the gamj( efforts of St. Frusquin to keep him at bay jprovine of no avail.

On the occmon of his next appearance— in the Richmond Stakes at Goodwood—odds of 2to I were betted, on him against four opponents, and ho landed them by a length from Champfleurle, the other compatitors being His Reverence (third), Spook, and Dovoue. The colt's third essay was in the Middle Park Plate, but though his well-earned reputation gnve him the market call, he was beaten into third place by St. Frmquin and Oniladina, the former securing the verdict 1 by half a length. This was tho last show of the son of St. Simon as a juvenile, and he had not appeared in public this year prior to his success in the Derby.

A.%*"tne mile post Avilion lessened the load of the Galop filly, and they drew then clear of Canterbury Pilgrim, Thais, and Miss Fraser, these in turn holainga decided advantageover Amphora, Ardvourlie, and Helm. In descending the hill Avilioa was at the neck of the Galop filly, and in immediate pursuit were Canterbury Pilgrim, Thais, Ardvourlie, and Helm to Tattenham Corner. Here Avilion had drawn level with the Galop filly, and this pair on the lower ground came along in advance of Thais io. the centre, with Canterbury Pilgrim, Helm, and Proposition on the right.

Then more than a quarter of a mile from home the latter resigned to Thais, and the favourite carried on tho running from Canterbury Pilgrim, Proposition, Helm, Miss Fraser, and Amphora until approaching the distance.
