He "won the J:iok'>> Bridge Handicap at Lingfield on Mr G. ■Edwardes' Tinkabelle, who went out seionl favourite at 100 to 80 in a field of five. The full text «f the betting rule, as it appeared when altered by Lonion'Ta 4tersall's Club, and to 'Wbich"the cable referred recently, is:—^"lf no objection is "lodged -within a quarter of an h< ir' after the winner has weighed in, bets (except in cases which, in the opinion of the committee, are cases of'frdntd) go to the horse placed first by the judge. If an objection is lodged within the said time, and in (sases .wh,ich, iv the opinion of the committee, .are cases of fraud, bete go' with the .stages." The committee which passed the, rule is composed df nine gentlemen, and there is? not one of the nine who is not a practical representative of a vast constituency, the Duke of Richmond and Sir John Rqbinson being of ' thJw/number. London sporting writers congratulated the' •committee of Tattersall's .«n~their action, "and the stewards , of the English Jockey Club t are understood to entirely approve of .the; aew" rule, while the "cash fielders'* gave cheer aftfer dheer fox Mr Joe Thompson when they heard of the tesult. .'They cried," M Bravo*'x)ld Joe, goodf' Australia." The French horse, San Souci 11., was very profitable to his- owner last season. He won JJ17.800 in stakes, his biggest contributioi being the ! Grand l^ix. The Victorian advice'^hich reported the New Zealaiide*. Mrfraxfui to hay backed all "over" the Commonwealth oh Thursday for MeftropolitaTr and 'other races, 'seems to .be incorrect, at* least so fa* as New South. Wales is concerned. 'The' big-; gest bfettors in Sydney deny that Marantii' was in attything:lKke special demand there oh Thursday for any T?ace^ and speculators who may he iqcTined to '"fancy v the colt ought to be satisfied to await develop- ' ments before investing^.' Maifanui may be undergoirig the process of being boomed.
