Betting: 6 to 5 on Volodyovski, 40 to 1 agst Doricles, 100 to 8 Revenue, 25 to 1 Pietermantzbnrg. As Volodyovski was reported to be badly ridden in the race, the following account, taken from the London Sportsman, may be of interest:—Upon the bairier being removed away went Revenue with the lead, followed by Cymcal, Fortuuatus, Volodyovski, Lord Bobs, Doricles, Syneros, and Veronese, Jacobite II and lan being last. After a quarter of a mile had been covered Cynical took up the running followed by Revenue, Fortunatus, and Volodyovski, with Lord Bobs next, in advance of Doricles and Jacobite 11. At the foot of the hill Cynical was followed by his stable companion, Fortunatus, Synsros coming next, well in advance of Revenue, Princes Melton, Volodyovski, Doricles, Lord Bobs, and Pietermaritzburg, lan bringing up the reai As the Rifle Butts were left behind, Cynical and Fortunatus were still .in the van, attended by Revenue, Veronese, Volodyovski, and Pietermaritzburg. with Princess Melton last, behind Jacobite 11. As the eUaight was made for, Cynical drooped away, and Volodyovski, on the inside, wert to the front, followed by Revenue, Veronese, Pietermaritzburg, lan, and Doricles. Some crowding out at the next bend left Revenue in front, but the gesticulations of the crowd caused him to swerve on to Veronese, Volodyovski, and Doricles. So they raced to below the distance, where Doricles took up the running, followed by Volodyovski, who had got out of a difficulty in. clever style. It was a grand race home,- but the ~ blue and yellow " triumphed, and by a neck wore the favourite down ; three lengths between second and third. Pietermaritzburg was placed fourth, lan was fifth, Yerone<k sixth, Jacobite II seventh, Lord Bobs eighth, and Princess Melton nith. A k>Eg way off, Aida was tenth, Syneros eleventh, Fortuuatus twelfth, and Cynical last. Upon returning to scale sSI objection was lodged on the ground of bumping, which was immediately gone into by Lord Stanley, Viscount Downe, and the Hon. F. W. Lambton, and, after carefuUy hearing the evidence, they declined to disturb the judge's verdict— a decision -which was greeted by a loud cheer from those assembled outside the room in which the case was heard. Time by Benson's chronograph, 3miu 8 2-ssec. Value of the stakes, £5-125. A London cable states that at Sandown Park the Foal Stakes resulted as follows: — Volodyovski 1. Transparency 2, Dundonald 5.
