I • ■ / Ho rses to Wa t c h Horses who impressed Daily Racing Form representatives as being ready to win: CHURCHILL DOWNS BUMPY ROAD— One of the better juveniles of last year who has been turned out during the winter months to freshen up for his sophomore campaign. Recent workouts indicate he retained his form and should win against allowance company at first asking. DOGOON — Seasonal bow was an impressive performance as it demonstrated this classy sprinter has returned to action in top form. That effort should have provided needed tightener so that he can handle same company when rematched. MY NIGHT OUT — Tab this middle distance runner next time out, as he undoubtedly needed last effort and should improve. Top allowance company would seem most likely spot. OUR BOY JOHN — This juvenile colt should graduate at next asking as he failed to break with his field in last and, still finished a strong third. A maiden test at 4 furlongs would, provide best spot. RAM o LETTE— This one should have little troufble in extending his present winning skein to three in a row. He completely outclasses the lower-priced middle distance runners on the grounds. SUDDEN LAMAR — Last indicated this one could even step up into more select com-,pany and emerge victorious. He encountered no trouble in handling ,500 claimers at 4£ -furlongs in his winning effort. WORLD SERIES— Ably demonstrated in seasonal bow last week that he still retains his strong closing lick. Should win a purse at next asking when placed against ,500. claimers going a mile. YUKON JAKE— Narrowly missed in first outing in eight months and should make amends when placed back in against similar company going 6 furlongs. t GARDEN STATE PARK BICKY L. — Seasoned sprinter seasonally displays sharp form early in his campaign. Particularly adept at handling-an "off track. DOCTEUR — Veteran son of the little-known Gendarme is a superior performer over a muddy or slow racing strip. Arrives from a winning season at Gulf-stream and is in good condition. HAPPY PRINCESS— One of the fleetest mares in training. Has shown a liking for the local course during past meetings and was -a recent Florida winner. INDIAN CREEK— Displayed a great deal of promise here last fall. Reported training well and should figure prominently in his group. • JOLLY RHYMER — Quick sprinter is in condition for an early victory if properly placed. JUMPING BROOK — Previous record shows his liking for Garden State Park and he comes fit from Florida where he was a winner "in a light campaign. MISS EQUITY — Fleet mare appears in excellent condition following a local winter. Can be expected to be fit and ready at the first asking. ROMANITA — Outstanding mare win-terered well in Kentucky and trained well at Keeneland prior to her arrival here. Will outclass most of the opposition she will be required to meet. SEFTONS PICK — Has been racing consistently well at Maryland. One of the better "off" track runners on the circuit and a winner here in past seasons. SUNDAY PITCH — Freshened a bit since his Maryland races and can be expected to be in his best form for this meeting. TALENT SHOW— Not quite of the class to compete in the. Kentucky Derby, from which he was a late withdrawal, but a top colt at the shorter distances. PIMLICO RACE COURSE BRINY DEEP — Fair effort when apparently overmatched in seasonal bow suggests this one will earn backets in near future. BONZO — Finished full of run against . maiden two-year-olds of ,500 value and figures to score. FAVOR ME-ME — Improvement in last suggests that longshot victory is possibility over cheap claimers. GRAND OPERA — Bad-legged sprinter was third over an off track in lone start this term and figures to improve. INSWEPT — Stakes winner last year is better than seasonal debut would suggest and improvement is probable. QUARTER DECK— Raced well in first start of spring and has always favored Pimlico racing surface. RESERVE BID-JOOd Laurel form indicates this one is ready for graduation against maiden claimers. RED RIVER VALLEY— Not too much class attached to this one but late speed could gain purse over ,000 claimers. STAR SPANGLE — Displayed fine speed against 0,000 claimers and should knock cut a purse at Pimlico. SATAN HELPER— Haltered for ,500 and won next against 0,000 claimers. suggesting he is top claim of Maryland tliis season. MAUMEE DOWNS ALONZO B. — Is improving steadily and a trip to the winners circle appears imminent in the very near future.- BOLD GENE— Has plenty of early speed and should take down the major portion of a purse real soon? Was barely beaten in last. DEFROST — Is a steady-going campaigner and can go with the best of them when in a running mood. May make amends next time postward. DARLIN ANN— Set the pace to the head of the stretch in last endeavor only to falter near the end. May forget to stop in future assignment. ECONOMY BOY— Showed to good advantage in last encounter and may be difficult to whip in next test. FOOT SECRET — Is in fine fettle and should grace the charmed circle at the first asking.

UPPER ECHELON — Turned in a dismal effort last time out, but can do better than that performance would indicate. Tab for early victory. WISH I, MAY— Was beaten, but not disgraced in last. May atone for recent defeat when pitted against the same caliber of thoroughbreds.

Might surprise at fair price soon. CHALLAHYMA— Maiden tried rating tac-* tics in last after having shown high speed in earlier effort? .May earn brackets at .next asking.
