Arkle at once went to the front from Wreath Or, this pair settling down clear of Galtee More on the right, with Velasquez aud Mtustrel side by side from Berzak on the left, and the outpaced Guernsey bringing up the rear. The pace was a "cracker" from the outset, and when Arkle compounded at the T Y.C. winning post he left Velaaquez arid Minstrel in joint command from Wreath Or and Galtee More, with Eerzak at the head of the others. In descending the hill Galtee Mord changed places with Wreath Or, and at the saino time Berzak, on the other side, began to overhaul Velasquez and Minstrel. For a stride or two at this point Velasquez flattered' his backers ; but as soon as the steep part of the descent had be eu got over Galtee More passed him as if he were standing still. The race then and there came to a Bummary end, for with Galtee More breasting the ascent like a lion, be went clear away by himself and won by four lengths. In a close finish between them for places Vela'-quez finished a head in front of Minstrel, who in turn was the same in advance of Be.rzak, with Wreath Or fifth, Guernsey, a long way off, sixth, and Arkle last.

The Duanna filly jumped off in front of Chelandry on the right, level with whom laid Lowly and Fortalice on the left. In the heels of the Duenna filly and Chelandry came Goletta and Bluewater, and with Galatia on the immediate whip hand of Lowly and Fortalice, the rearmost berths were occupied by Perce Neige aud Floriane. They ran so until half way across the flat, Yjhen Fortalice began to die out, and Chelandry went on second from Galatia, Lowly, and Perce Neige to the Bushes Here Obelandry deprived the Duenna filly of the command, with Gnletta remaining in tbeir heels, and Galatia and Lowly well clear of the remainder, who were becoming widely scattered. As they entered the Abingdon Mile Bottom Goletta seemed to be drawing up, but instead of doing so she quickly lost ground again, and with Chelandry now leaving the Duenna filly well in the lurch, she increased her command to the end, and won by two lengths In the last 50ydss Golett* secured third place from the Duenna filly, a length and a-half behind Galatia, with Lowly fifth, Perce Neige sixth, Fortalice seventh, Floviane a long way off la&b.

As they entered the straight Shaddock deprived Kilsallnghan of the command, and was promptly challenged by Piety, who gave him the go-by below the distance, with the race apparently well in hand.
