Commentaries by Archie Stock on the Devil's Dyke and Raymond Glendenning at the winning post, assisted by race-readers at each point, from the July Course, Newmarket
In spite of seventy-three entries for this year's wartime Cesarewitch-second leg of the autumn double-this famous long-distance autumn handicap will be run as one race, unlike the Cambridgeshire of a fortnight ago, which was run in two classes. Peacetime values are a thing of the past ; this year's race will be a plate of 500 sovs.-425 sovs. to the winner, 50 sovs. to the second, 25 sovs. to the third. It will start on the old course, which will be followed for one mile down to the dip, where the field will take a right-handed turn on to the summer course ... and so to the finish. But the distance will be shortened from
21 miles to 2 miles and 24 yards. Devil's Dyke is near the junction of the two courses.
