i CAVALCADE ON EDGE FOR THE SUBURBAN i. . 4 NEW YORK, N. Y., May 28. Trainer Robert Smith evidently intends to see to it that Cavalcade is not short when he goes to the post Thursday for his engagement in the Suburban Handicap. The Brookmeade Stable ace has been training brilliantly for this 0,000 prize, and he appears to be thoroughly tightened up for a mile and a quarter. His final at Belmont Park Tuesday morning was a mile and a quarter in 2:07. It was handily accomplished, and there is no doubt of his fitness. At this time there appears to be a good chance that no fewer than ten will be seen at the post for the Suburban. Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilts Discovery will doubtless be the most notable opponent for Mrs. Sloanes colt, and the filly Hindu Queen has been training to go along with her more notable stablemate. She is in nicely under 103 pounds. C. H. Knebelkamp promised to send out King Saxon, unbeaten this year and winner of-the Paumonok, Excelsior and Metropolitan Handicaps already. Head Play, Mrs. Silas B". Masons sterling campaigner that took the measure of Cavalcade in his only start of the year, is fit and ready. Mrs. Deering Howes Only One, conqueror of Head Play in the Dixie Handicap at Pim-lico is looked upon as a sure starter. Mrs. John Hay Whitneys Singing Wood has worked well for the engagement, and P. A. Carreaud will probably start his recent purchase, War Glory. Sir Beverley, now that he has escaped from the maiden class, may carry the silks of William Woodward, and it is possible that Pomposity will race for W. R. Coe now that Ladysman has been sent back to the farm.
