English Sporting


Ducal Goodwood and dlstlnfrne Brighton, are tho chief points of attraction in ming circles at tho time ot year ol which onr present accounts tell, and the former great meet ing has novor boen rribro brlmfnl of lnterost than in this year of 1871. TheWrf scribes in tho London sporting papers tel] «of surprises, the Uko of which have never before been soon : «f favourites beaten with no end of odds laid on them, and Wo understand that ai profound a sensation would bo created ' by tho victory of Shannon for tho Cnp, as waa seen in 1815 when Hiss Mis won tho stakes and Cup, and the ultra moderate Horsey beat the Derby winner-Morry Monarch tor the Gratwicke,' or. to como nearer home, as wa roilised at li and wick tho other day, when th* great Hamlet poi boiled over for the Derby, and an outsider on tho day palled off the Motrop. From all we read, it would appear that Favonius' doieat for the Cnp must havo been mainly owing .to want of paco, as he won in a oan ter at leighton afterwards, whon he had one to mako lots of running for him. And, by-tho-way, the time given for that Brighton Cup rn co is dlllicult to understand. Ia the conditions of tho »ace, tho distance is given as " tho old course" (about two miles), and the timo as 4min 25sec ; but in the "lengths of the courses" given in "Ruff," the old course is said to bo 1 mlle tl furlongs and 265 yards In length, so that either the 4min 2Csec must be a mis print for Smin 25sccs, or lt was the slowest run race ever known. Most likely lt was a typographical error, for the pavers would hardly speak In such high terms of praise about the staling powers of Favonius, if i ti took him all that timo to do not quite SOO yards ovor a mlle and three quarters. Tho three-year old. Botheration, by Cambusean, came out and won a couple af big handicaps, The Chiches ter 8takes and Chonttrllold Cup nt Goodwood with 25 to 1 against him for each, at tho post : nnd In a two-year-old stakos, when only two started, 100s to 15 were laid on the loser, who was beaten easily. Tho following are the prin cipal races dcolded at Goodwood and Brighton.

Aftor a long delay at tba post, nnd many breaks-away, in which Oxonian, Lord Hawko, and Mornington wore conspicuous, while Bridgwater and Martyrdom refused to join their horses, tho lot got woU away, Oxonian on the higher ground making play, followed by Piqulllo, Corisando, botheration, Martyrdom, Frivolity, Protouder, Bridgwater, aud Digby Grand iu u cluster, with Corregidor heading tho others, of whom tho last lot were Tubomaclo, Gamos, Admiral, and Thor.

Coming into tho straight, however,

Oxonian again went to the front, hut directly after Martyr dom took a ncok load of him. Botheration Bnd Mornington I h-iug their attendants, while Corregidor, passing Digby i Grand, who droppol back, and Anton, went on next. As they neared the rails Sterling and Vulcan improved their positions, I tho Inti er, however, being soon after In tronblo, and within tho distînee Oxonian, Martyrdom, and Corregidor also compounded, leaving Mornington and Botheration in front, whllo Sterling went on third. Mornington hore swerved on to Botheration, and the pair cannoned two er throo times, but Constable getting tho latter clear got the best of tho finish, and won by a length ; tho samo dis.ance divided Mornington from Sterling Martyrdom wa3 fourth. Corregidor fifth, Vnlcan sixth.Not Out seventh. Anton eiçhtb, and Oxonian ninth, with Admiral, Verauda, and Royal BaVo next, tho last lot comprising Temple. Lorie Hawke, and Thor. After tho race Mordan objected to Botheration, on tho ground of a cro«s, and Chaloner objected to both first and second, alleging a similar reason. Tho stewards heard evidonce, and con firmed tho judge's verdict as it regarded Botheration but dls fiunlified Mornington, Sterling thns being placed second. Iheindgonot having placed a fourth, thero is consequently no third. A rnmonr wa* prevalent that all tho horse? had gone tho wrong course, but the report turned out uttorly incorrect.
