Luke slewed liis usual high order of s| eed and came to the last eighth with what appeared a winning lead, hut lie tired badly mar the end and fell a ready victim to Vogues challenge. l!an ivia also fjU going fast at the end and would have been second in a few more strides. The cool weather winch prevailed today, afforded a welcome relief from the heat and was a factor towards bringing out another good crowd to «witno.s the decision of the seven races carded at Douglas Turk.
