At Aurora One Best Bet — GAT HAL LIE — In the Sixth Bace. The limit number of starters are expected to compete in the majority of the events at Aurora Tuesday, four of the seven numbers having seventeen entered. The other three races also filled well, the two-year-old race attracting twelve entrants, while the feature, the Oswego Handicap, finds eleven named to contest for the ,200 prize. The sixth is the smallest filed of the day, eight being entered here. With the exception of the feature, all the races are under claiming conditions. Some good ones are to be seen in action in the Oswego and, if the going remains fast, a new track record is apt to be established, for they are a fast band of sprinters. The weights are so arranged as to give all the starters an equal chance, the top weight Of 108 pounds being Glenister II.s assignment The weights then range down to 95 pounds. Sprinters will hold the limelight, five of the seven events being at the shorter distances. The sixth, a test for three-year-olds exclusively, is at a mile, while the final is over the mile and a sixteenth distance. MONASTERY— KEKGAX— POLL TMABA. Old MONASTERY looks like the best betting proposition in the initial dash, at five and a half furlongs. He has won two races at this meeting so far, and would only need to race in his best style to register again in this sprint. The going matters little to him and, should the track become muddy, his chances would not be lessened in any way. KEEOAN has been training in a manner to ■suggest that he is nearing top form and, if he shows his best speed, may be hard to beat. POLLYMARA raced well enough in her only start here to give her the call for the short end of the purse. WAR BELIES may have to be reckoned with. LA BELLE is due for a better " performance. MYRTLE BELLE— POLYCARP— COLONEL SCHOOLER. MYRTLE BELLE is capable Of showing to much better advantage than her last race indicated and, if she puts forth her best efforts today, may be the one to score in the second offering. She usually shows to best advantage on a fast track, though she has won in muddy going. POLYCARP may give the others plenty of trouble if he gets away to good advantage. He is a fast starter and holds the inside post position today. If he can evade the crowding soon after the start, he shoud give a good account of himself. COLONEL SCHOOLER would only have to run his usual rsce to land the short end of the purse. BOB SPALDING rates a fair chance. BRAEDALBANE is far from his former self. TOM P.— DOCTOR GLENN— DOLLY BAY. The last two races run by TOM P. were both good showings, he landing the place money in each of them. He would need to improve but a little over either of those races to come home in front today. DOCTOR GLENN is an in and outer, but may run one of his good races here and, if such is the case, he should be able to get some part of the purse. DOLLY BAY raced against some1 good ones at New Orleans and. if she has retained her best form, will take plenty of beating. SUNNYLAND may prove troublesome if he starts. RIGHT ON TIME and DOWN TOWN seem -to be the best of the others. MADAM KMELIE— BILL SETH— CRISPIE SETH. MADAM EMELIE is meeting horses much more of her own class today and we look for her to be graduated from the non-winners ranks. She ran a coupe of good races at Lexington, though failing to win, and would only have to show the same brand of speed today to enable her to score. BILL SETH finally annexed a purse after many trys. and it was a mighty good showing for him. If he races in the same manner today, he is apt to prove a repeater. CRISPIE SETH is well able to garner the show end of the purse. BILLY McCARNEY is outclassed. PEEP O. is possibly the best of the others. BRILLIANT— HOT TIME— GLENISTER II. With the weight assignments in the Oswego, it is no easy matter to pick the probable winner. However, taking a line through recent workouts, BRILLIANT stands a fair chance of winning. His only race here to date was against much faster company than he meets today, and, for that reason expert him to give a much better account of himself. HOT TIME ran a dandy race last week and would be a hard one to beat today if he displayed the same brand of speed as ho showed in his last winning essay. GLENISTER II. is in top form and is -capable of turning the trick again. He rates as a real danger. TRAVELLER prefers a longer distance. SILVER SONG and JACK ALEXANDER rate next best. GAY HALLIE— NESTLE— FORETOLD. The best bet of the day is spotted in the sixth event, given over to the three-year-olds. GAY HALLIE is the one in question and, taking a line through her last race, is going to be a tough one to beat NESTLE does not come in the same class with GAY HALLIE. but must be given consideration on her last race when she was just defeated by Gunsight FORETOLD is about due for an improved performance and may be able to get the short end of the purse. LADY LURA raced fairly well in her first appearance of the year and may cause the others some trouble. MORTHMAN— HALU— SANDRAE. WORTHMAN has shown he is in his best form by winning his last two races. They were over the sprinting distances and todays test is at a mile and a sixteenth, but he is well able to go the longer route and win. HALU gave an improved showing in his last start and may be the one to give WORTH-MAN the most trouble today. SANDRAE may be able to hold the others safe for third money. SWEEP-NET is not without a chance. NEPTUNE would stand a fair chance if he gets in. He is last on the also eligible list and hardly likely to start.
