Middle Pabk Plate, of £3,860, for 2
year olds, six furlongs. For the Middle Part Plate (worth nearly £4,000) a score of first-class two-year-olds, including the £4,100 yearling, Maximilian, put in an appearance. Athol Lad, the whole brother to Prince Charlie, who won this race in 1871, was made favorite at 7 lo 4, next in demand being the north country colt Beauclerc, who comes from the Blink Bonny and Oaller-Ou stable. Lord Fahnouth was repiesented by the weedy Lady of Mercia, by Blair Athol, out of Lady Coventry, instead of by Childoric or Ilydromel, which was a mistake. The high priced Maximilian neither looked nor ran well. As the event influences next year's Derby, we think it best to give the particulars.
