The trend of public opinion places the Easts Jeep, Hoop Jr. and Alexis versus the Wests Burning Dream and Pot o Luck, with a scattering of votes for Darby Dieppe and Fighting Step, who performed creditably in the Blue Grass running.

J. Scotts Jacobe, who had not previously been accounted a probable. Jacobe. unplaced in a division of the Wood, worked a mile in 1:43 through the mud at Aqueduct this morning. Only two Derby candidates were called upon for moves that were at all fast here today. Tiger Rebel, who races for the firm of Brent and Talbot, was sent a mile and a quarter by trainer John M. Goode. The colt worked on a fast surface in :49, 1:16. 1:43 : and 2:08. accomplishing his task in handy fashion. Hoop Jr. favorably impressed the . clocking fraternity when he opened up for a longer prep tomorrow by skipping through a quarter mile in :23%, with speed to spare. Bail Bond, stablemate to Burning Dream i who is a capable mudder but has not been I pointed for the Derby, went a consummate mile in 1:445. Jockeys were indicated for all probables, with the noteworthy exception of Colonel Bradleys Burning Dream. Permit Smith to Ride in Race Jockey F. A. Smith was suspended for the meeting following his ride on Bymea-bond in the Blue Grass, but will permitted to ride that colt in the Derby, having previously been engaged for this mount. Arcaro is. incidentally, the only jockey 7 with a mount in the classic who has previously ridden a winner. He piloted Lawrin and Whirlaway when they captured the , ••Run for the Roses." Apprentice Billy Nichols is the lone apprentice with a mount, having the leg up on Misweet, the only filly among the probables. Nichols does not have the mount, the Rose miss will be handled 1 by the veteran Arthur Craig. Indications were that there will be but 1 one entry in the field, this the obscure ? tandem of the Kenilworth Farm pair of the lightly raced Bert G. and the undistin-; guished Kenilworth Lad. Many expected that Bert G. alone will respond to the 1 bugle. Possible additions to the starting line-up 3 are L. J. Caillouettes Joes Choice and 1 Mrs. A. B. Katies K. Doe-Doe. The latter r became more doubtful when he did not t work with Tiger Rebel this morning. Joes Choice somewhat more probable when he won impressively here Monday. Misweet Only Filly to Seek Honors All over nine will be grouped in the mu-tuel "field. " with E. A. Weidekamp, supervisor of this department, designating his s selection on the program. Each of the e starters carries 126 pounds, with the exception of the filly Misweet, who will carry 121, her connections having apparently decided to enter the daughter of Bel Aethel in the e • Derby instead of the Oaks on Derby eve. The eastern "invaders" Jeep, Hoop Jr. and Alexis seem to be growing in favor r locally, since Burning Dream and Pot o • Luck were vanquished by the lightly regarded Darby Dieppe, and Hoop Jr. and j Alexis have displayed such speed in their 1 works. Several of the probables were expected to o undergo their distance finals here tomorrow morning, beginning with Hoop Jr., who o last ran in the Wood Memorial. It is not t expected that any of the starters in the e mile and a furlong of last week-ends Blue e Grass will be required to put in strenuous s trial. Jeep is to supplement his mile yesterday at Belmont with a move here Thursday morning, "to get the feel of the track."
