Heats and a final were again utilised on the Upper Yarra one mile course on 13th and 14th May. Geelong Grammar again requested that the race be held on the Barwon but Scotch and Wesley did not agree.
Geelong Grammar finished second behind Wesley College in the heat by a length in a boil over - everyone expected a Geelong victory. Melbourne Grammar finished three lengths behind Scotch in their heat.
The final was close until Swan Street when Scotch drew away to win comfortably.
