The new racing regulations were thought likely to press hard upon Alexandra Park, but distances of a mile and Flutamide Hair Loss a quarter are obtained with the aid of one turn only. For longer distances a circuit of the circular course has to be made, and it must be confessed that it is a rather small circle for horse- racing. Ten years since no one could have Buy Flutamide expected to live to see a stake of 1,000 sovs. run for on this course, but the thing is, and •899-I "OUR VAN. It 375 the London Cup is its name. That it was won by Hawfinch was a matter for some congratu- lation, for Mr. Bottom ley has had none the best of luck with his by no means ill-considered purchases of blood stock. The City Selling Handicap of 500 so vs., an inven- tion of Pratt and Co., enabled Villager to give strength to the adage of horses for courses, for he seems to be able to win nowhere else. Manchester Steeplechases and Hurdle Races. — Of the multitude of Eastertide races, those held at Manchester were the most inter- esting, and chief amongst them was the Lancashire Handicap Steeplechase of 3J miles. The fact that Manifesto (i2st. I2lb.) and Gentle Ida (i2st. 51b.) wer6 meeting was sufficient to make the race a very important one; but besides these, other competi- tors in the Grand National — Lotus Flutamide 250 Mg Lily, Pistache, Sheriff Hutton, and Mum — were running. The result was not too satisfactory, for Manifesto was brought down through the falling of his stable companion, Glen RoyaJ, who was put in the race to assist him, and the question whether he could give Gentle Ida 7IDS. was as far off decision as ever. Gentle Ida stood up this time, and if poetical justice had been meted out, should have won. She all but did so, Breemount's Pride, to whom she was giving a trifle of 33lbs., beating her by three-quarters of a length. Breemount's Pride had been leased by Mr. Edwardes from his Irish owner, on the Flutamide Tablets strength of her early form in Ireland. She went very much to the bad, how- ever, in this country, and turned roarer. The remedy that was sought for this was tracheotomy, performed a few weeks before the race, and the operation enabled the mare to win the race. Of course the party were " not on," so the race was run for the benefit of the bookmakers, and Gentle Ida was just prevented from winning the race for the second time, the first win having been in 1895. For this result we think most people were sorry. The race gave rise to some newspaper talk of a match between Mani- festo and Gentle Ida, which Mr. Bulteel seemed anxious to bring about, but in view of the important engagement of Gentle Ida in France, it was deemed judicious to decline the challenge. Four miles at Sandown Park was sug- gested for the distance by some one who, like most of us, would be delighted to see such a race within convenient distance of town. No one, however, seems to have suggested the propriety of providing a stake to be run for, it being taken for granted that the owners will put down a sum of, say, 2,000 sovs. apiece. They are not only to find the horses and jockeys, but the stakes as well, in order that the public shall see an interesting race. And because Mr. Bottomley does not immedi- ately fall in with a one-sided arrangement like this, his lack of good sportsmanship is hinted at. He is to pay the piper, but the public are to call the tune. Newmarket Craven.— After the Eastertide crowds it was a plea- sant relief to turn one's steps, which is metaphor for journeying by Great Eastern special, to Newmarket. It is always sad to see old customs, though they be but superstitions, falling into abeyance, and it is my painful duty to record a waning belief in the efficacy of the salute to the Ditch. The reverential raising of the hat having failed to produce the desired effect on the Monday's account, salutes the reverse of dig- nified are coming into fashion 376 baily's magazine. IMay with, one learns with horror, satisfactory results so far as the winning of bets is concerned. Happy those habitues of New- market Heath who are in their graves, in that they are spared such desecration as this. It may as well be admitted sooner as later that the prominent figure of the meeting was once more Sloan. He was not obtru- sive on either the first day or the second, contenting himself with winning a couple of races on each day. But on the third day he came out with a performance that nearly matched what he did at the First October Meeting in 1898, when he won five races in succession. This time he won four consecutively, the first three being for the same owner, Sir Waldie Griffiths, for whom Sloan had five winning rides on the three days, out of eight successes. Last days at Newmarket are not, as a rule, remarkable for the quality of the racing, so Sloan on two occasions has to be thanked for providing excitement. Whether the bookmakers thanked him or not I have not heard, but I incline to think that they wished him further. In the way of horseflesh, we saw Trident following up the form he left off with last season at Derby by winning the Forty- first Biennial with gst. 51b. His was a taking appearance ; much more so than that of Solennis, who won the Craven Stakes, the last race of the meeting, on the tiring Ancaster mile, which shows no horse, even when a winner, at its best. Harrow rather upset matters by winning the Column Produce Stakes, beating St. Gris somewhat decisively at 81bs. In this race were Millennium, entered for the Derby, and Santa Casa, entered for the Oaks, and if this was their true form, they might as well be scratched. Millen-
