Sporting Notes. Mentone races last Saturday were well attended, and an interesting after noon's sport eventuated, a couple of the finishes being exceedingly close ; many contend that the judge's decision in placing Mettle first in the Jumpers' Flat was wrong, but a lot had their eyes on Optima with his long . lead, and lost sight of Mettle's fine finish ing run. Brownie won the Hurdles, beating the boomed Bettlewyud ra'her easily. Francis started second favor ite, and nicely handled by E. Andrews, annexed the Handicap of a Mile, Op timism being second. Shackleton scor.d in the First Division Handicap, at the finish. The top-weight, Recaller. backed heavily from 10 to 1 down to 3 to 1, carried off the second Division Handicap; while in the Third Division backers were astray in mak ing Dunoon favori e, his stable mate Myndian, wearing blinkers, winning handily from Moussellaino. Myndian has since been sold .for 105 guineas. W. J. Hall, who rode Shackleton, very nearly brought off a do...
