Y., June 6. — Two of the most important trials at Belmont this morning, those of Nashua and Jabneh, are discussed at length elsewhere in this paper. A third "big move" was that of Foxcatcher Farms Parlo, who skipped an impressive five furlongs in :59% in handy fashion. Trainer Dick Handlen said this morning that last years sophomore filly champion, who returned to action with a powerful second to C. V. Whitneys Dispute at seven furlongs, was a definite candidate for Wednesdays 5,000 added Top Flight Handicap at a mile and a sixteenth. Parlo was not fully extended in her brisk move this morning and galloped out another furlong in 1:13. Trainer Jim Fitzsimmons added considerably to the interest in the Top Flight this morning when he relayed word from Aqueduct that Wheatley Stables reigning queen of the sophomore fillies, High Voltage, would definitely start in the local handicap, though she is asked to concede weight to Parlo on the scale. King Ranchs Riverina, who is eligible to the Top Flight, went a handy mile and a furlong in 1:55% Sunday morning, in company with Lychnus, but trainer Max Hirsch is expected to depend on John S. Phipps Spinnning Top, whose race behind Dispute last week was better than the chart indicates. A pair of Greentree Stable three-year-olds turned in speedy trials this morning, Gold Box ripping off five furlongs in :59. while Illusionist- went a handy mile in i 1 -40 The latter finished very strongly
