Nine Routers to Tangle In Glenwood at Jamaica First Pebble and Midnight Oi! Topweighted Under 122 Pounds JAMAICA, L. I., N. Y., June 27. The Glenwood Purse, a test at a mile and a sixteenth for Class D. three-year-olds, heads tomorrows pre-week-end card at Empire-at-Jamaica, but is closely pressed for attractiveness by the Mount Kisco Handicap that precedes it in the fourth spot on the card. The Glenwood carries a ,000 prize, while the Mount Kisco is worth 00 less and is at six furlongs, but has drawn some capable speedsters who at one time or another have been rated somewhat better than Class D. The nine in the Glenwood are headed by Orange Stables First Pebble and Greentree Stables Midnight Oil, at 122 pounds each. The former will have a running mate in Louisiana Farms Best Dress, who gets in with ill. Others in this test are Pickpocket, 117; Forfar, Jolly Soul and Buy and Sell, 116 each; The Problem, 111, and Paper Cup, 108. While there are no world-beaters in this band several recent winners are among the candidates, notably Col. E. R. Bradleys Buy and Sell, Belair Studs improving Jolly Soul, Ralph Mcllvains Forfar and Midnight Oil. The Problem would also be formidable on his best races, but is decidedly erratic. Buy and Sell beat a moderate lot at six furlongs at Aqueduct in his last outing and may improve off that effort, while Midnight Oil won his last outing at Delaware. Forfars best race of the year was probably his place of second, beaten only two lengths, by Windfields, who will probably be the choice in Saturdays 0,000 Empire City Stakes. Pickpocket is another who is on the erratic side, but has turned in some races this year that are good enough to give him a chance in what shapes up as an open race. The presence of Arcaro on Midnight Oil and the general support the public gives to the Greentree horses may make Midnight Oil the choice, with Forfar, Jolly Soul and the entry of First Pebble and Best Dress also getting -some backing.
