Event data
Name: Melbourne Handicap Challenge Cup Tournament

Notes:
In the first round, Lush won by default against E.C. Dunn, who did not play, and similarly, Baynes won by default against P.D. Phillips, who did not play. Connell gave up his match with Burns when the score was +2-2=1. Thus, Lush, Baynes, and Burns advanced to the second round. The score of the first-round match between Sedgefield and Hodgkinson was given as +2-0=0 for Sedgefield at one point, and then we are told that Sedgefield won, though the final score is not explicitly stated. I will assume that it was +3-0=0 for Sedgefield, since if Hodgkinson had won a game or even got a draw, it would likely have been mentioned. In the second round, Fleming got a bye; in the third round, Sedgefield got a bye; in the fourth round, Lulman got a bye.
