A contemporary account of the race shows that there were nine runners at the start though with the excitement starting then the leading horse
"pulled so tremendously, that after going half a mile the drawing rein snapt and he went right away... his rider no longer having any control over him... The runaway horse rattled along at the top of his speed til three quarters of a mile from home, when he bolted... and threw his jockey fortunately without doing him any injury... At the stand Bieram, at the time looking amazingly like a winner, was passed by Rubini and Whale which two ran a severe race till the last eight or ten strides, when Rubini went out, and won cleverly by a length. Bieram struggled manfully to the end and was not beaten above a head by Whale. Galopade and Hokee Pokee were fourth and fifth. There was nothing wonderful in the pace. The Cup (in reality a silver shield of great value and exquisite workmanship) was speculated on to a very large amount"

Henry Paget, Earl of Uxbridge and later 2nd Marquess of Anglesey (1797-1869) was the eldest son of Field Marshal Henry Paget, 1st Marquess of Anglesey and his first wife, Lady Caroline Elizabeth Villiers, third daughter of George Villiers, 4th Earl of Jersey. Anglesey entered the House of Commons for Anglesey in 1820, a seat he held until 1832. He also served as State Steward to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland between 1828 and 1829. In 1832 he was summoned to the House of Lords through a writ of acceleration in his father's junior title Baron Paget. He served under Lord Melbourne as a Lord-in-Waiting from 1837 to 1839 and as Lord Chamberlain of the Household from 1839 to 1841 and was sworn of the Privy Council in 1839. On the death of his father in 1854 he became 2nd Marquess of Anglesey as well as becoming Lord Lieutenant of Anglesey, an office he held until his death in 1869.
Anglesey married three times, first to Eleanora Campbell, second daughter of John Campbell and granddaughter of John Campbell, 5th Duke of Argyll, having three children. Following her death in 1828 he was married to Henrietta Bagot, fourth daughter of Charles Bagot, on 27 August 1833, having another four children. His third and last marriage, in 1860, was to Ellen Burnand, daughter of George Burnand and former wife of J. W. Bell.
