LAST GREETINGS — Fleet filly from California who is certain to give a good account of herself when she becomes fully acclimated. JUDGE J. B. — This two-year-old looms as a fairly shifty runner. Has first and second to credit in two starts. INVIGORATOR — Has been working well over the Arlington course and seems ready to go well at the first asking. COACHIE — This two-year-old was a little green first time out, but wiH improve with racing and might be a fair sort. WOODCHUCK — Very speedy sprinter and can hold his own in the best company up to seven furlongs. DRY RUN— Is a fairly game stretch runner who can do well in the mud as well as on the dry. Worth watching. CACOMO — If this one is placed in the proper company at seven furlongs or over will be difficult to trim. POLNETTIE — Now that this one has broken out of the maiden ranks should be dangerous. Can hold her own in ordinary company. RECLINE — Only two races this year have been very good. Has been bang-up. Should knock out a victory soon. ABBE STING — Might have needed last when finishing second to Inseparable. May like the Arlington racing strip. DETROIT BIG GRAVEL— Worked impressively with stablemate, Big Jet, registering a neat 1:01 for five-eighths mile. FLYING RAID— Useful mare comes from smartly-trained barn and sped five furlongs in 1:01, handily. ZYBIE — Three-year-old maiden displayed high speed in only local outing, and due for early graduation. IN A SPIN — Whirlaway-sired colt retains good form and stepped three-quarters mile last Thursday morning in 1:16, handily. RED ROMEO — Buckley three-year-old trifle short in last but will do better next out against same class field. OUR CHALLENGE — Pollard and Harkins three-year-old colt beat older rivals in Grosse Pointe Purse and morning trials are sharp. AIM — Better-than-average plater when sent mile or over and recently worked four furlongs in :48, handily. DISICAL MISS — Maiden two-year-old filly has been knocking at the victory door and ready for first set of brackets. UNCLE FUD — Forrest juvenile displayed high speed before bowing to Tripline in recent engagement and will improve off that performance. ALSIRAL— Useful sprinter from the Shan-grila Stable is improving steadily and should soon visit winners ring. DREAM COMFORT — Cheap but honest plater was victim of poorly-judged ride in recent engagement and will do better with stronger pilot. HERES LUCK— Rough trip in Wolverine Purse cost this quick three-year-old filly all chance, but she will do better with even break in racing luck. AQUEDUCT TRUE PATTERN — Trainer W. W. Stephens has apparently found the secret of making this three-year-old speedster carry his speed until the wire. Should repeat against mediocre allowance company. LADY JACOPO — This one lost all chance at the start in lone try at Belmont. Should score over ,500 claiming company. YOUNG RICKEY — Turned in a disappointing effort at seven furlongs, but could go better when sent a mile and a furlong. OUR JESTER — Latest race indicated this one is about due for a set of brackets. BALAN — This veteran campaigner is staging a comeback and the manner in which he closed in a sprint recently served notice it could be a successful return to competition. BELLUNO — A maiden juvenile wfro has been working impressively. MUSIC HOSS — Turned in a creditable performance in first try at this track and could register an upset tally soon. BERKELEY II. — This hurdler was a rank outsider in the wagering and finished fourth after encountering poor racing luck. • PATROL WAGON— Met with slight interference when fourth in latest out. Should improve with clear sailing. TORTILLA — This two - year - old son of Hoop, Jr. has speed and should not be long in leaving the maiden ranks.

DELAWARE PARK REPRODUCTION — Improvement noted in last and brackets may come in near future. LADSLOVE— Was elevated a bit rapidly for last but shapes up as a shifty sort. BENHADAR— Won mile and a furlong Montchanin impressively and will be hard to beat in future runnings of series.

ALF A MO — Seems certain to graduate early if kept with non-winners of the ,000 variety. BALL HAWK — Two good races at the meeting and another victory is probable. MERRYMAKER — Caught in close quarters during last race and could win with a share of racing luck. SUFFOLiTboWNS FLEET OF FOOT — A highly regarded sophomore who raced greenly in debut. Should make amends in next outing. ETERNAL WAY — An aging plater who is rounding to form and may score with front-running victory in next. FLIGHT PATROL— Was not unduly punished while finishing fourth behind a stablemate in last. Experienced rider should help this one graduate.

With that race serving as tightener, may be hard to handle next outing. ASTEROIDE — A cheap plater who has been showing enough progress to warrant consideration in ,500 sprint company. HOOP GANO — Slow start and long lay-off probably caused this one to be defeated in last. Should atone for that failure with next start.

MONMOUTH PARK DANUBE — Filly has been coming along nicely in her training and she looks like she is ready. BLACK AND BLUE — Been filling a steady training schedule and will be tough to beat, especially if he finds an "off" track. FRENABILBEPA — Failed to win a purse at Garden State Park, but she has been working smartly here and will be placed with the right company. CANTON — Sophomore has been freshened up after his last race in April and appears on edge. IS PROUD — Brookfield Farm filly appears one of the best two-year-olds on the New Jersey circuit. PENSAVA — Fresh from a successful excursion to Delaware and acting good. Recently prepped five-eighths over a good track here in 1:02, handily. SUNNY BONES — Did not show much during Garden State meeting, but improvement can be looked for at this meeting. SIR STEPHEN — Rather cheap sort, but better than .his races at Garden State indicate. SWEET BUTTER — A slight drop in company will find this one right in the money. ROCKY HEIGHTS — Sprinter has been showing good speed in the morning and will be giving his best.

Had no opportunity to run through the stretch while hemmed in on the rail. EVANTTME — Erratic course interrupted this ones win skein. Should stay on course if given proper guidance.

ANDY DISPLAY — Met with interference when making belated stretch bid behind De Ville last time. Better racing luck is all needed. CRESSON KNIGHT — First start after lengthy rest was impressive. Appears ready to turn back2,000 rivals. SEA PHANTOM— Slight drop in classification is all required to assure victory for this better-than-average performer. FRACTURED — Had a rough trip last time after breaking from disadvantageous number one post position. Tab for future score against similar foes.

Should find field to his liking in immediate future. WAY THE BEST — Ordinary plater has been close up in recent starts and should visit coveted circle at next asking. FLYING MURAL — Recent five-furlong trial completed in 1:01 handily would seem to suggest this one is ready for top performance. FIRST BAR — Disappoined last time when installed the pronounced choice. Should atone for that setback at next asking if not too ambitiously placed. CURTAIN RAISER — Possesses high early speed and may forget to stop next time if properly rated.
