* Horses to Watch Horses who impressed Daily Racing Form representatives as being ready to win: 3 LINCOLN FIELDS T f J£ FIRE DUST — This aged router overcame breaking poorly and scored in debut. Is £2 at peak condition and should continue to tally over ,000 claimers. Z CLOY — Proved ability to race over the 3 grass in one start here. Disregard latest. Can do better with the same type of company. WHOSE — Was blocked and taken up 2 sharply when making a good bid in the O stretch the last time out. Better luck could provide brackets. *■ SGT. BROWN — A capable sort of sprinter j who broke poorly in latest and then tired O after moving up. Deserves another uu chance. CD JANINA — Was far back in the early stages Z in most recent start and closed with a U rush. A longer distance may be needed. SUBSCRIBER — Had no chance to extend himself in last appearance under silks 2 because of being blocked. Look for a sur- prise tally. Q ROYAL RISK — A route of ground is better suited for this one. Indicated he is fit in a good sprint effort here. DR. RUSH — Has been a disappointing choice on recent occasions, but in latest try suffered interference. Is due for brackets soon. TOBESHINED— A four-year-old filly who •turned in an impressive race in lone start here. Improvement can be expected in next. LADY GREENWOOD— With better luck, this one could redeem herself for the defeat suffered in latest attempt. Was impeded at the start. TECHNICOLOR, — Was overmatched in last try and still turned in a good effort. A drop in company and going six furlongs could result in a victory. SILENT MAX— In first outing here this three-year-old stumbled badly just after the break. Was slow to recover and yet finished third. DETROIT WATERCLOCK — Weakly handled in recent novice rider race and capable of trimming same field under stronger handling. CASTANAU — Maiden two-year-old gelding displayed high speed in last start and is due for early graduation. PIPER — Lost much ground in last local engagement and is eligible for good spot , in three-year-old maiden event. IS THERE — Improved youngster appears ; ready for winning trip. DELHANNAH — Hard-hitting mare is partial to the Fair Grounds footing and she has displayed speed in all local engagements. BLUE BADGE— Paddock gelding turned in sharp effort behind Almenow in Charlevoix Purse and never was better. ROYAT — Recent arrival from Chicago may have needed recent middle distance race and should earn several purses during current meeting. TURBINE — Well-conformed stakes performer is nearing peak form and worked six furlongs in 1:14%, handily. FRERE JACQUES — Improved thoroughbred and can handle flat or turf course in capable style. Worked one mile in 1:41 handily. BULLY BOY— Quick two-year-old colt is : one of the better youngsters in training here and breezed five furlongs in 1:02. CLEAN SLATE— Lost by short margin to i Blue Seal in Grand Circus Park Purse and should improve off that engagement, i ALT .DEPENDS — Ordinary plater has been doing better in recent starts and ready to beat ,000 platers at middle distances. MOLDY — Canadian-owned sprinter raced impressively against Checkerhall and comes from well-trained stable. BROWN BROCADE— Maiden two-year-old filly has been knocking at the victory door and is ready for diploma. VERAGAL — Collins plater is reaching top form and should annex purse when matched with ,000 platers at mile and one-sixteenth. ERINSVTT ,T .F — Roughed in last outing and will be right there when sent back against ,000 platers at six furlongs. AQUEDUCT LEADING HOME — This three-year-old filly ran a close-up second in first outing of «season. Tab right back in a filly and mare sprint event. MAYES RILEY— Have been pitching this one a trifle too high. Watch when drops down in class and picks up an experienced rider. OUR JOHN WM.— Beat a classy field of 0,000 sprinters last out and now that he is back with his own kind there is no reason he shouldnt repeat. FLOWER BED— Last was not a true race for this classy filly. Give her another chance in a three-year-old filly race and she should get the money. ROSEBOROUGH — Has been improving with each race and figures to earn brackets in a 2,500 claimer. Watch for rider change. POLLYS BOY— Has made it two in a row now and has stepped up in company each time. Is probably now looking for T f , : an allowance event and there appears to be no reason this colt cant beat better. BUG JUICE — Was winner last out in a field of good allowance performers and with the benefit of another strong ride should take the measure of better sprinters. LOYAL WORKER — Lost all chance when she was carried very wide in last start. Probably wants a field of ,500 sprinters. DARNAWAY — This one has accounted for his last two starts in a very impressive fashion and is probably now looking for another spot in an allowance event at either six or seven furlongs. ALLIES PAL— Wait until they drop this filly down where she belongs as she has been running with the best. A flat mile is probably her best race. DIAZ — Had very little chance in last start as rider ran into a blind switch. Tab right back with same kind. QUIBBLE — This filly has apparently found her winning stride as last effort was a top performance and connections should find proper spot for another winning performance. DELAWARE PARK COMBUSTION— Tired a bit in the final stages of most recent race. Should improve off that effort. ISA — May have been a trifle short while dropping a narrow decision to Superb Donna. OPAL BLOSSOM — Has shown enough to assure a victory over maiden fillies. BUSY DREAM — Is not too sound, but-his class should enable him to win for ,000. JERRYS BEST— Weakened in initial distance effort, but race should prove helpful. RESOJET — Appears ready to knock out a purse when sent a route against ,500 opposition. ON — Short in name but a fairly classy filly who is eligible for non-winners of two races. EVER MESSAGE — A bit too much for young rider who handled him in last. Improvement can be expected. BULLOW — Overcame trouble in her last to be beaten narrowly by Little Harp. REGALER — Showed a surprisingly good effort in last and may score at long odds. UNCLE DON — Was a bit slow settling into stride last out but should graduate soon. THIN DIME— Favors the local track and should give a good account of himself against ,000 sprinters. GOLD JINTOWN— Raced well in the Polly Drummond and is eligible for a maiden dash. NARRAGANSETT PARK PROHIBIT— A smart looking juvenile filly that has been training well and may win at first asking. QUICK RETORT — Trials indicate this Count Fleet miss retains her speed since shipping here from Suffolk. Won two in a row at that Boston oval. BIG POP — Has been doing everything asked of him during the morning hours. May start local campaign with a victory. COMETS FLASH— Is capable of bettering last. Was knocked out of contention on first turn and failed to recover sufficiently. Rates another chance. KHABULA — Appeared short in recent middle distance event. Is capable of holding her own in ,000 company, CIVIC DUTY— Failed when well regarded in last. Should atone for that defeat if pitted against maiden juveniles. HERES FAY— Turned in a creditable effort in debut. Should not tarry in the non-winners ranks. DANCING GOB — Served warning by his recent second that he is at peak form again. Won more than his share of races last year and should be a top performer if not overmatched. WHIRLER — A better than average sophomore son of Whirlaway — Lady Erne, that is training smartly. His recent 1:01% for five-ighths was in handy fashion.. GAY DATE — Is gradually rounding to top form after her bad spill during the recent Suffolk Downs meeting. RIVER DOWNS CASTLE OVER — Set the pace going a route in last, but folded badly in the late stages. A redeeming effort the next try would not be a surprise. GOOD BABY — Recent victory so impressive that this one is difficult to overlook in any event. BATTLE H — Was running over horses at the end in his last at six furlongs. Should be on top from barrier to wire when in the right spot. NANCYS BABY— A little racing luck and a strong-armed pilot should help this one to garner the winners share. Raced wide in last. TOPRTJDGE — Not too much class, but an honest sort. Can be counted on for a true race each try. CARLOTTA— Last was impressive and an "off" strip would still move this Head Play mare up considerably. j K. O. LISTO — Displayed early foot in last and is reportedly rounding to winning form. j SMOKEY PINE — A two-year-old who raced greenly in the last try, but who should improve with racing. THATS PRETTY— Came from far back to be beaten but a length in his last. Next effort may find him in the winners circle at the end. GRACE HY— This mares races at Randall were all good. A short sprint in fair company should find her earning the lions share. LITTLE HATCHET— Has been going with some of the best here. Next effort may be a winning one if not in too high company. IMPERSONATOR— Disappointed in last. However, that race may have been the conditioner needed for a true race in the very near future. OMAHA BLUE FAWN— Was away badly when - ground broke out from under her last trip postward. Will do better with even break in racing luck. HADANCnFleet sprinter appeared not ready at break on last Thursdays card. Should make amends at next asking. TING T. — Promising juvenile lugged in slightly during stretch run against Equi-chall. Improvement can be expected. BRTLIiGAL — Disappointed at short odds when carried wide entering the stretch in latest effort. Should score at next asking against similar opponents. KENSAIL — Ordinary plater has been close up in recent starts and should find field to his liking in the near future. BULLREVEAL— Local dockers tab this one for early graduation from the maiden juvenile ranks. AKBAR — Veteran performer has shown decided fondness for local strip and is at best on an "off" strip. RICKS RAFT— A drop in classification is all that is needed to assure victory for this consistent middle-distance campaigner. ARTFUL KID — Appeared a trifle short in only appearance her and should benefit from that effort. RADIO JOE — Races here have been creditable and only a strong ride is needed to annex a triumph for this one against lower priced platers. PICKETWIRE — Narrowly beaten by Turnback in middle-distance test on last weeks program and improvement can be expected from that effort. BLINKS BOY— Connections should, find suitable spot for this fleet sprinter during the latter part of the current session.
