Sir Howard Stakes tailored for Nipster

first_imgGARY Subratie’s NIPSTER had the perfect warm-up behind his monster-of-a-stablemate, WOW WOW, two weeks ago at six and a half furlongs, making him tough to beat in this afternoon’s Sir Howard Stakes.Likewise, Wayne DaCosta’s ENGLAND’S ROSE, whose return has been well anticipated by pundits ahead of the classic season, should easily reproduce her scintillating exercise gallops and put the Hot Line Stakes field to shame.Who could have guessed that the sanctity of the Sir Howard and Hotline Stakes, three-year-old events traditionally restricted to non-winners of two races, would have been broken by new conditions allowing ENGLAND’S ROSE, already a winner of two races, to face non-winners-of-two, even worse, sharing topweight 126lb with Gary Subratie’s ANOTHER AFFAIR.Any hope harboured by ENGLAND’S ROSE’s five rivals will remain exactly that, hope, as there is absolutely no doubt that the out-of-class filly will turn what should have been an interesting race into a farce.Meanwhile, NIPSTER ran his best race ever, beaten two and a quarter lengths to finish in 1:18.4 behind WOW WOW’s 1:18.2, settling third while SHE’S A HIT ripped splits of 22.3. After WOW WOW took over, NIPSTER got closer to the half-mile split of 45.3 in the stretch run, being a length second a furlong out. Competitive chase Before that run, NIPSTER, carrying 121lb, chased MAHOGANY with 114lb at seven furlongs on January 18, causing him to lose second on the line to TOMOHAWK. MAHOGANY impressively dismissed foreign-breds last Sunday, clocking 1:31.2 for seven and a half furlongs, a run which franked NIPSTER’s valiant effort.ADORATION and GREEN GOLD RUSH both won impressively on their January 25 and 26 debuts, respectively, but are only seven pounds off a hardened NIPSTER, who has been through the fire all of six times, winning first time out as a two-year-old last October then having to endure unenviable tasks of facing WOW WOW four times and MAHOGANY once.Elsewhere on the 10-race card, having shown real class in his three victories, clocking awesome times, SPARKLE DIAMOND, if he’s back to his best, should have the beating of his overnight allowance rivals at five furlongs round. However, Alford Brown’s TREVOR’S CHOICE, carrying 110lb, seeking a hat-trick of wins after toting topweight 126lb and clocking 58.2 a month ago, needs only one wrong move from the foreigner to put him to the sword.SPARKLE DIAMOND, racing out of his third barn in five starts, now taking orders from Errol Waugh after three consecutive victories under the care of Ralph Porter, returns to the races after a near seven-month break.The United States-bred four-year-old colt was scratched at the gate, injured, on August 24, dashing any hopes his connections had of racking purse earnings to qualify for the Diamond Mile. SPARKLE DIAMOND, in his best workout since returning to training, clocked 1:13.2 for six furlongs on February 8, two weeks ago, followed by an easy 1:04.2 for five furlongs last Saturday morning.last_img read more

Boston again without Pastrňák. How many teams will win the…

first_imgThe National Hockey League does not stop, the beginning of the working week will be improved by four matches of the first round. However, Czech fans will not be pleased with the news of the condition of David Pastrňák, who will not be available to Boston. 21:00 Columbus Blue Jackets – Tampa Bay LightningStatus series 1-2The exciting series continues.The famous Lightning offensive has a difficult task in this series. Columbus follows the instructions of coach Tortorella and their problems cause opponents with their style. At a very acceptable time for European fans, the Blue Jackets will try to match the Bolts move.It was Tampa who controlled the last meeting. After forty minutes, Lightning led 3: 1 thanks to goals from Killorn, Point and Hedman. Columbus quickly caught up with the difference of only one goal, when after 97 seconds of the third period Robinson reduced, but the Bolts managed to maintain a thin lead.The Bluecoats can still not count on Cam Atkinson or Josh Anderson, and Tmpa will play again without Steven Stamkos.23:30 Arizona Coyotes – Colorado AvalancheStatus series 1-2The Coyotes are back in the game.And really the lion’s share is played by the goalkeeper Darcy Kuemper. If the most useful player of each team were to be chosen at this point, Yotes would undoubtedly be a 30-year-old Canadian. The stretched goalkeeper caught an incredible 49 out of 51 shots in the last game.It was mainly because of him that Colorado did not reach the match. In addition, Arizona found a recipe for Pavel the French four times, the net behind the Czech goalkeeper was broken by Stepan, Richardson, Hall and Crouse.It can be assumed that Philipp Grubauer will return between the three Lavin poles.02:00 Carolina Hurricanes – Boston BruinsStatus series 1-2Weakened Boston is fighting for the match.Although in the last game the Bears had to do without David Pastrňák or Tuukka Rask, who decided to leave the bubble, coach Bruce Cassidy’s charges managed to win a 3: 1 victory over the goals of Coyle, Kuraly and Marchand.Even this time, however, the Bruins will not have it easy. Although it turned out that Jaroslav Halák can be a great replacement for Fina Raska, one big name will be missing in the attack. David Pastrňák will not perform even in the fourth race.They also count a significant loss on the other side. The series most likely ended for the best Hurricane scorer in the playoffs – Andrej Svečnikov. A 20-year-old Russian has injured his leg and is awaiting diagnosis.04:30 Vancouver Canucks – St. Louis BluesState of the series 2: 1This could be a big problem for St. Louis.However, the defending champion finally survived. After five losses, the Bluesmen felt again how tasty the win was. It was time, if it weren’t for the successful victory in the overtime that Brayden Schenn had hit his team, he would have been waiting for St. Louis is an almost inhuman task.Instead, they can tune in at 4:30 Central European Time.The Blues helped change the goal area. Last year’s hero Jordan Binnington was replaced between the three poles by Jake Allen. The 30-year-old goalkeeper was doing fantastically, with only two of the forty-one Nucks shots ending behind him.The question mark hangs over the Tarasenko or Steen starts, and Tyler Myers or Tyler Toffoli will probably not appear in the killer whale camp.

Manchester City Deliver Humiliating Rout Of Champions Liverpool

first_imgManchester City delivered a reminder of their devastating quality with a ruthless evisceration of newly-crowned champions, Liverpool, at an empty Etihad Stadium on Thursday.Pep Guardiola’s side might have given their title up without much of a fight this season, but they delivered a statement and provided an intriguing glimpse of what awaits Liverpool next season with a 4-0 victory.City close the gap to the champions to 20 points and more importantly strengthen their hold on second place.Kevin de Bruyne opened the scoring from the spot after Joe Gomez wrestled Raheem Sterling to the ground in the box. Sterling added another ten minutes later and youngster Phil Foden scored on the stroke of halftime to put City 3-0 up at the interval.An own goal from second-half substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain summed up Liverpool’s day as City ran out 4-0 winners.Perhaps peeved by having to give the Reds a guard of honour, City showed more intent and were clearly the hungrier side as Liverpool solely lacking their usual intensity and sharpness looked to be suffering from the after-effects of their title celebrations.Liverpool were actually on top in the opening moments but the tide turned immediately the home side took the lead.While Jurgen Klopp can write off the loss to their exertions, the fact that Liverpool have now failed to score in five consecutive away games in all competitions will surely be a point of concern.The Reds have lost two of their last three away from home in the league, conceding seven goals in those losses without scoring.Having wrapped up the title with a record seven games left, Liverpool can also set the record for the most points in a season (100) most wins in a season (the record is 32), most home wins (18) and biggest winning margin (19 points) but will have to perform much better than this to have any chance of rewriting the history books.Relatedlast_img read more

Creators of HBO’s “Confederate” respond to backlash

first_img Related (L-R) David Benioff and D. B. Weiss — Getty Images/Steve Granitz(LOS ANGELES) — When HBO announced it would be producing a new series, Confederate, involving an alternate timeline in which the south has seceded and slavery still exists, backlash was pretty severe.Supergirl actor David Harewood tweeted, “Good luck finding black actors for this project.” And writer Roxane Gay tweeted, “It is exhausting to think of how many people at @HBO said yes to letting two white men envision modern day slavery. And offensive.”But the show’s creators, Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss — and their partners in Confederate, the African-American husband and wife writers and producers Nichelle Tramble Spellman and Malcolm Spellman — are defending the show and its premise. Speaking with Vulture, the team said they expected to take fire.  “We all knew it was coming in one form or another,” Benioff said.  And Malcolm Spellman recalled reacting to the premise by saying, “You’re dealing with weapons-grade material here.”“It goes without saying slavery is the worst thing that ever happened in American history,” Weiss said.  “It’s our original sin as a nation. And history doesn’t disappear.  That sin is still with us in many ways.”But Confederate, he said is a “science-fiction show,” and as such  “…can show us how this history is still with us in a way that strictly realistic drama ever could….”Nichelle Spellman, who worked on The Good Wife, recalled the team’s original meeting, saying, “I just remember being so excited — and absolutely terrified at the same time.”“In this futuristic world, you could have this conversation in a straightforward manner without it being steeped in history,” she said.Nichelle understands people’s concerns but adds, “I wish their concern had been reserved to the night of the premiere…” after they’d seen the program, none of which, the team adds, has even been written yet.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.

Tony Finau comes up just short again, but gets another top-5 finish at a golf major championship

first_imgTony Finau did it again Sunday, finishing in the top-10 at the PGA Championship in a tie for fourth place, three strokes behind winner Collin Morikawa at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco.It wasn’t what the Salt Lake native was hoping for, but he had little to complain about as he shot his best round of the week, a 4-under-par 66 to finish at 10-under par 270.He just couldn’t keep up with the 23-year-old Morikawa, whose 64 gave him the victory at 13-under-par 267. It marked Finau’s seventh top-10 at a major over the past five years and 31st since he won the Puerto Rico Open in 2016. Finau has now finished in the top five in all four of golf’s majors. He was fifth at the U.S. Open in 2018 and tied for fifth at last year’s Masters and was third at last year’s Open Championship in Northern Ireland.Before Sunday, his best finish at PGA was a tie for 10th in 2015, Since then, he missed the cut and finished well back in a tie for 44th, 42nd and 64th last year.It also marked Finau’s 31st top 10 finish since his only PGA Tour victory in 2016 at the Puerto Rico Open, more than any other player on the PGA Tour.At one point late in the final round, Finau was in a seven-way tie for the lead, after he rolled in consecutive birdie putts at 13 and 14 from 20 feet. However, he couldn’t make any more birdies the rest of the day as Morikawa, chipped in for birdie at 14 and made eagle at 16. Morikawa competed in Salt Lake four years ago when the Pac-12 Championships were played at the S.L. Country Club, where he finished in a tie for 15th.last_img read more
