At half-past, three the start-took place'; Com bermere took the lead, followed by Attila, Lasso, and Belcceur; : the second; lot. being headed by Auckland, Chatham, Seahorse, . Policy, and Cold renick; to these succeeded a body, of horses (in racing phraseology 'the ruck,') and-then the tail, viz., Defier, Robert de Gorham, Palladium, Hy daspes, and Jack ; the ; last having lost a start of nearly 100 yards. For the : first quarter of a mile the pace was moderate ; it then quickened, and Lasso immediately vacated the third .place, but in other respects the race proceeded as .we have de scribed it, till near the turn.. when Belcceur headed Attila and Combermere, and .with the two at his shoulders carried- the running into the straight course, the lot behind them consisting of Chatham^ Auckland, Seahorse, Policy, land the' Agreeable colt; Robert dc Gorham, who had gradually im proved' his position,* lying next. The front rank continued intact to the road, but it was otherwise with that behind it. Coldrenick had already shown that the distance was too great for him/Chatham fell lame, ' Seahorse, Policy, and the Agreeable colt'had shot their bolts, and Robert de Gorham passing them in succession, took his ground- next to Auckland, within a few yards of the distance. Combermere gave up- in toto, arid fell into ' the ruck,' and immediately after1 Attila shot past Belcceur, took a decisive lead; kept' it to the end, and won with the most perfect case imaginable by two lengths. Robert de Gorham ran by Auckland half- way up the -distance/ collared Belcceur at the stand, and beat him for the second money cleverly by a length, Auckland being well up with Belcceur at! the finish. . The Agreeable colt and Policy were fifth and sixth, Seahorse - dividing them from: the crowd behind. Jack and Palladium were about the last two. The pace was good, but certainly not first rate. Value of the stakes, £4,900. Col. Anson, Lords Chesterfield and Maidstone, and, in fact, all the gentlemen 'connected with Scott's stables, are great winners on the race; the; Man chester men are also on the right side, the balance to be handed over amounting, according to report, tb£70.000i . ..'../ 'V !
