BACK-END ENGLISH TWO - YEAR - OLDS Excellent Form and Promise Shown by Prince Galahad, Sarchedon, Gleneskaki and Others. Notwithstanding the retirement of Tctratcma, the Dcwhurst Plate was an interesting affair, and served to reintroduce Prince Galahad, which proved a worthy substitute for Chattis Hill. He had not run since iie opened his account with a runaway victory at Ascot, and was not as much fancied as Orpheus, which had to concede three pounds but failed signally in the attempt, for, though he got his head in the dip. he was helpless when Carslake shook up the "Prince." and it was a treat to see him dash up the hill to win in a canter. Prince Galahad is an exceptionally handsome white-legged chestnut son of the expatriated Prince Palatine Decagone. and fully confirmed the high opinion that was formed of him on the occasion of his brilliant debut. It is to be hoped his hocks will give no further trouble, as he bids fair to make up into a high-class three-year-old. and his engagements include the Two Thousand Guineas. Derby and St. Leger. Lord Furness would appear to have made a fine bargain when he purchased his dam, mated with Tiie Tetrarch two years ago, for 2.801 guineas. The Criterion Stakes was principally remarkable for the game display of Sarchedon. which ran as straight as a gun-barrel and put up a fine performance by dead-heating with the undefeated Glencskaki. to which he was giving twelve pounds, and I may add that Martin excelled himself in getting him there. Sarchedon is a good-looking" gray colt, by The Tetrarch Perfect Peace, and Mr. James Buchanan may congratulate himself on having purchased both him and his dam. Mr. F. Hardys Fancy Man gave a stylish display in carrying his ten pounds penalty easily to victory in the Old Nursery his third successive victory and there are not many two-year-olds that can beat the neatly named son of Bachelors Double Painted Lady at a mile. Lord Wilton had luck on his side when Incense won the New Nursery by a head from Dark Dawn, which had beaten her in the next stride, but Lady James Douglas must have been bitterly disappointed with the roguish display of Sth Division, which is an vil-minded youngster, in the Moulton Stakes, wheh went to Mr. S. 15. Joels racing-like Polymelus colt, Polydipsia, and it seems strange that of all his yearlings there are only "two by his famous sire. Mr. Clarence Haileys colt by Hapsburg Bairam won a Maiden Plate in convincing style, and bids fair to improve into a fine three-year-old. and Lucentio may safely be trusted to do further credit to Sir John Robinsons colors, as also to his neglected sire, Mercutio. "Vigilant" in London Sportsman.
