Galtee More and St. Cloud II were in front for a few strides, and then Goletta settled down, followed at clear intervals by St. Cloud 11, Galtee More, Silver Fox, and Chelandry. The pace was very slow from the outset, and had not improved when, in climbing the hill, Goletta increased her command to three or four lengths. Galtee More continued to go on third at a similar interval, and, with the others now keeping clo.<e company, Silver Fox, was for the most part slightly in the j ■rear.- The gaps were reduced at-the-JRed House, and with the sie%m turned on half a mile from home Galtee More came round at the bend with Goletta, while Sfc. Cloud II continued to head the others. Before reaching the distance Goletla had given way, and Galtee More then assuming the command, he wjis challenged on the left by St. Cloud II »nd Silver Fox, from whom he did not seem capable of quite breaking away.
