THE following extracts from The Field show tbat the French filly, Sornette fully kept up hor prestige earned on the other Bide of tho channel, as she won tho Fitzwilliam Stakes and Cup in a canter.

At the first attempt an excellent start was effected, in which Géant des Batailles got away in advanco, and made play at a good paco, having Clemence on his right, with Tho Recordor on tho left, to whom succeeded Exciseman and Good Hope, side by sido, slightly in front of Tho Bobby and Viscount, in tho rear of whom were seen tho colours of Paganini nnd Border Knight. They ran thus to tho hill, where tho leaders, dosed up, and) on reappearing in sight, Clemenco was soon to have given way, and her place was soon occupied by Tho Bobby, dose up with whom carno The Recorder and Mr. Johnstono's pair, with Viscount in attendance. Proceeding along tho wood sido the paco considerably mended, and as they passed tho rifle butts its effects became visible in thc favourite coming back to his horses, and tho gradual improvement in the positions of tho two, heavy weights, who, as they neared the Red House turn, had reached the front.|At this point, Tho Bobby neared Géant des B itailles, und carno round the bend with a clear lead of The Recorder, Exciseman, and Good Hope ; but half wny down Mr. Brayley'8 colt was beaten, und his plaoo was taken by Border Knight in the centre, Viscount and Paganini at the same time taking their places on the extreme

outside. When fairly in tho straight The Bobby waa done with, and immediately afterwards Custanoe brought Border Knight to tho front, and came on with a olear load of Viscount and tho " Fiddle player " to tho distance. Hero the former uncertain brute "cut it," leaving Paganini in attendance upon the leader but tiring under tho woight as they approached the inclosure French wisely eased bim, and Mr Johnstones two were again left in front. When their chunca was hopelessly out they were stopped and were headed by Geant des Batailles, who, however was nevor able to reach tho leador, who won in the commonest of cantors by half a dozen lengths ; half a length separated tho second and third. Exciseman was fourth, Paganini fifth, Clemence sixth, Viscount seventh, The Bobby eighth, and The Recordor last.

Betting : 2 to 1 against Kingcraft, 100 to 30 against Palmerston, 7 to 1 against Sunlight, 10 to 1 against Wheatear, 100 to' G against Captivator, 25 to 1 against Tabernacle, 35 to 1 against Hawthornden, 40 to 1 against Stanley, 50 to 1 against Normanby, 1000 to 15 against Bonny Swell, 1000 to 10 against The Boy, 1000 to IO against Alaric, 1000 to 8 against Ptarmigan, and 1000 5 each against Euterprise and Ely Appleton. Mr. Manning, with his usual punctuality, weighed out the nineteen riders, who, having completed their toilet in the paddock, wore shortly after seen entering the course, which at this period was thickly studded by the privileged ticket-holders, who narrowly scanned the condition of the respectivo favourites, tho majority of whom appeared in tho perfection of training ; the out sider, and ultimato winner-Hawthornden-finding a host of admirers. After the usual parade and canter they were taken in hand by Mr. M'George at twenty miauten to four ; but, after tho first break away, Sun

light and Ptarmigau became so unmanagable that the I pair required leading back to the post, and in con sequence several failures preceded tho actual start, which was protracted until 3.54, when they were dis patched in close company. Tho unruly Sunlight was tho first away, closely attended by Ely Appleton, Palmerston, Wheatoar, and Tho Boy, with the favourite lying next on tho inside ; to these succeeded The Recorder, Stockhausen, Wild Flower, Ptarmigan, Nor manby, Bonny Swell, and Hawthornden in a body, with Captivator, Physiology, and Stanley in the rear. They ran thus to tho road, when Sunlight was seen to suddenly stop, having unfortunately broken his near hind fotlook-joinfc, which Snowdon for the moment was unacquainted with until informed by Custance. Dur ing this mishap, and as tho leaders approached the foot of the hill, Wild Flower, with Stockhausen at her

side, rushed to tho front and forced the running, for the purpose of serving their stable companions Palmerston and Captivator, tho pair being followed by Enterprise, Ely Appleton, Ptarmigan, Bonny Swell, Tho Boy, and Alaric, close in whose rear were seen the colours of Tho

Recorder, Kingcraft, Wheatear, Tabernacle, Palmer ston, and Haw thorndon nearly abreast to tho wood side, when Wild Flower, having performed her allotted task, retired. At the same time Palmerston drew up to tho leaders on their loft, Stockhausen at this period taking a clear lead of Ely Appleton ; but, on reaching tho Rifle Butts, the Ptarmigan. Alaric, Normanby, and Mr. Cartwright's coltwns joined by Tho.Boy, Ptarmigan, Alaric, Normanby, and Bonny Swell} whilst on the inside, next tho rails, came Palmerston,- Enterprise, Captivator, and Tabernacle, with Wheatear, The Recorder, the favourite, and Hawthornden lying next. On rounding the Rod House turn, where Stockhausen

[was beaten, and Ely Appleton, with The Boy and Enterprise at his quarters, came on with the running, closely attended by The Recorder, Palmerston, Alaric, and Wheatear, to the bond for home. Here Ely Apple ton was added to the beaten division followed in a few strides further by Ptarmigan, tho Recorder, and Alario, thus leaving Tho Boy in advance of Tabernacle, Enter prise, and Palmerston, who ran nearly abreast into the 'straight, when tho first-named "cracked,"this example being followed by tho retirement of Palmerston. But at this moment French was seen creeping up on the inside, with Hawthornden wide on tho right, and as they neared tho distanco tho favourite had both tho leaders beaten, and appeared to havo the best of it ; but immediately afterwards Grimshaw brought up Mr. Morgan's colt with a well timed rush, challenged the favourite at tho inclosure, had him beaton at the stand, and won an oxciting race by half [a length ; Wheatear, beaten five lengths, was third, closo up to whom carno Enterprise ; whilst The Recorder finished' fifth, Bonny Swell sixth, The Boy¡seventh, Tabernacle eighth, Palmer ston ninth, Alaric tenth, Stanley elevonth, and Capti vator next ; thon carno Ptarmigan, Stockhausen, Ely Appleton, and Normandy, who pulled up on tho post, with Wild flower and Physiology last, the latter tw walking in with tho crowd.
