A running commentary by R. C. Lyle , at the Grandstand
R. C. Long, at the Paddock
The start described by Richard North from the Roodeye Race Course,
Chester
The Chester Cup Stakes is a handicap run over the old Cup Course, about two miles and a quarter, which means slightly more than two circuits of the cramped, basin-shaped track on the Roodeve. It is worth about
£2,500 to the winner, and the owners of the first, second, and third horses each receive, by long tradition, a Champion Cheshire Cheese ' of the value of 5 sovs.'.
Last year's winner was Cho-Sen.
This year's winner will be duly recorded by R. C. Lyle. R. C. Long, who is to describe the scene from the paddock before the race, is the well-known racing journalist 'Augur' of The Sporting Life. Richard North , who is to describe the start, performed the same service for the broadcast of the Grand National.
