The Créât Events. THE 'Olen Innes Guardian' says,-The Trial Handicap) of 200 so va., brought six horses to the flag. Victor started a firm favourite at level money. A good start tras effected. Passing the stand the first time round Maude had a slight lead, with Dock wood, Victor, and the rest in close attendance. In this form the company travelled until the first quarter-mile post in the last round was reached. Here Dockwood went up, and Victor also improved his position. This movement of the leading horses disclosed the actual state of things, and it became apparent that the race lay between Maude, Victor, and Dockwood. - At the back of the course Dockwood closed with the Kelpie filiy, and wrestled from her first place, and about the same time Victor also passed her. This change of places led the public. to believe that Dockwood was going to run away with the honours. But it was not so. After travelling in this form for a few jadndred yards Maude again got up steam, passed Victor, ...
