Y., May 5. — Cain Hoy Stables Nile Lily, a candidate for the May 14 running of Belmonts Distaff Handicap and one of the best of her sex, will meet five fillies and mares here Tuesday in the featured Norwich Purse. The Cain Hoy miss, a four-year-old homebred daughter of Roman, will shoulder 119 pounds in the 6-furlong Norwich and is to be handled by jockey Pete Anderson. Nile Lily, winner of the American Beauty Handicap here last fall, defeated a quick band of fillies and mares in the La Belle at Hialeah in February and annexed the Bonnie Beryl Purse here April 2. She was one of the highweights in the Correction Handicap April 16 but did no better than fifth behind Searching, Fanciful Miss,, Outer Space, the Bed OHoses heroine, and Lori-El. The Cain Hoy filly gave her Correction rivals a stiff fight, Joir more than a half-mile but faded during the stretch run. In the field named overnight for the Norwich are such quick ones as Velvet Acres First Asking, 122; R. H. Abercrom-bies Bless Pat, 113, and Mrs C. J. Mus-carellis West, 113 pounds. The apprentice allowance is claimed for Merrick Stables improved Superb, 111, and Christopher T. Chenerys Scansion, 111 pounds. I. Volenzuela Rides Bless Pat Jockey Mike Sorrentina will be at the reins on West, Ismael Valenzuela, who won the Kentucky Derby last week end on Calumet Farms Tim Tam, is engaged for the speedy but erratic Bless Pat, and Ted Atkinson will pilot First Asking. Apprentice Jackie Leonard rides Scansion and Steve Soirez will be in the irons on Superb. Young Soirez, a 19-year-old French-American youngster from New Orleans, will probably get plenty of lightweight riding chores in New York this season. The Jad, under contract to trainer Nicholas Combest, won a pair of victories here and has a total of 23 winning trips to date., Soirez mount. Superb, a five-year-old daughter of Saggy and Vagrant Lass, beat a quick field here April 28 in the Walnut Ridge Purse and she is rated dangerous at the Norwich weights. Major opposition for Nile Lily in the Norwich probably will be provided by First Asking. The Velvet Acres mare, five-year-old progeny of Olympia and Askalot, won the Central Park" Handicap on April 29, trimming Sandys Joy, Evening Time, Floral Girl, and Judy Darling. In the latter vent. First Asking shouldered only 110 pounds but stood a long drive to nose out Sandys Joy at the wire. Scansion ran second to Floral Girl in her last outing. Bless Pat was beaten off in the Flowerfield Purse while Superb .took the measure of Wana, Bonnet, Polly-aire, and Behavior in the three-quarters mile Walnut Ridge. Best supporting number on the Tuesday program will bring together a half dozen hard-hitting racers, carrying claiming tags of 0,000 to 5,000, slated to meet at 1 1-16 miles. M. Mac Schwebels Louken-mac, disqualified after winning a sprint last week, may be handled by Manuel Ycaza and is expected to draw strong tote support. Loukenmac will be opposed by F. J.
