JOELS CLASSIC HONOR CANDIDATES. Mr. J. B. Joel has for some seasons past provided formidable candidates for the classic races and looks like plaving the same prominent part again this vear. Black Jester, whose half-sister, Jest, won the One Thousand Guineas and Oaks hist season, is, of course, well behind Corcyra. Stornoway and Kennvuiore on Middle Park Plate form, and had also been easily beaten by Stornoway in the Clearwcll Stakes earlier in the week. Jest, the earlier produce of his dam, Absurdity, improved greatly from two to three years old, and it may be that Black Jester will do the same. At this period, nevertheless. Parhelion looks far more like earning classic distinction from the way in which the son of Sundridge aiid the Oaks winner of 1003, Our Lassie, smashed up his field in the Prcndergast Stakes in October. Previously, Parhelion had carried off with great case the La van t Stakes at Goodwood, and although in his only other race, the Woodcote Stakes, he stood no chance with The Tetrarch, the latter only treated him as he was in the habit of doing everything else by which he was opposed. Should, therefore. Parhelion progress in the right way, it is quite likely that he will give serious trouhJe to everything concerned in the Two Thousand Guineas and Derby. London Sporting Life.
