An allowance test at five and one-half furlongs for sophomores. This event will have a full field as .13 have been, named, which Includes three oh the also eligible list. Silver Cross, who races in the interest and colors of Mrs. M. Petillo, is given a slight edge in a tight, fit in the headliner and may be capable of the task. The strapping son of Charing Cross has a touch of class and should be able to earn a set of brackets tomorrow afternoon. He has raced with a higher class of thoroughbred in the past than he will face here and his race on Wednesday over this oval shows that he is attaining peak form. This was his initial outing at the Fort Miami course and he may have needed that race as a tightener for tomorrows tilt. Jockey John Phillips, who graduated from the apprentice riders ranks a few days ago, and who has been riding with considerable success here, will again be aboard the Petillo representative. Going to Town, belonging to R. Kaproki, may give a good account of himself in the Port Clinton. He registered a Victory here last week and this was the first start of his career. The -son of Littletown stole a long lead early in that endeavor, but began to shorten stride the final sixteenth and held on gamely to the wire.

Jaquith, graced the winners circle last time postward and merits consideration. The Blue Pair mare is in fine fettle at present and should make her presence felt- in the chief offerings.
