This was run on the Wednesday 4th March 1846 with good going and the weather was clear. The winner was owned by Mr Adams and ridden by William Taylor, winning by 3 lengths in 10 minutes 46 seconds, with a further 3 lengths back to the third.


There were 49 subscribers giving a pot of 685 sovereigns, although the second saved their stake and 10 sovereigns were allocated for expenses, leaving 655 sovereigns for the winner. (Equivalent to £72,700 in 2017)
