As a result of his decisive win In the first division of the Tramway Handicap on Satur- day, Pentheus immediately became a clear-cut favourite again for the Epsom Handicap Wau- goola, winner of the second division In a quarter of a second foster time than that regis- tered by Pentheus, has firmed to second favouritism, while Legislator, Burracootboo, and Sir Chrystophcr have receded several points.

A.J.O. mile race, and as the former subse- quently ran well In a division of the Tramway Handicap he has been given a much more ' prominent position on the charts. Burracoot j boo and Chide were joined for a substantial ¡ amount. This, together with his satisfactory

run In the Chelmsford Stakes, kept Chide near the top of The Metropolitan list, pride of place being retained by Veilmond, who put In a good run to beat Cypress for third place in the weight-for-age event.
