There was to-day again an excellent attendance on the course, and the weather was brilliant, accounting for the unusually large number of carriages which lined one side of the course. The race committee, at the head of which is Henry Dyke, Esq., deserve great praise for the vast improvement they have made in the course and about the grand stand. The new Monnow cutting, if it has done no other good, has, however, furnished a new place of starting for the horses; and by gradually filling j up the old channel may further improve the course.

The Village Cock at last was persuaded to clear them, but they were obliged to be taken off for the other two. A tolerable start having been made, Tower and the Village Cock, after some hesitation, jumped the hurdles, but Dogberry obstinately refused after a great many efforts to get him over. Tower, although hard held in, was far before the Village Cock throughout this heat, and won by 30 yards or more. Second heat— Tower makes all the running. Village Cock, although he gained each time at the hurdles, had no chance in speed. Tower won easily.—Betting 3 to 1 against Village Cock.—The winner was sold for 38 guineas, being bought in by the owner. He thus realised £ 19 18s. to the race fund.
