Favourite wins Seek feature

first_imgThe speedy American gelding FORTUNEONEHUNDRED made it all convincingly to win the eighth running of the $1 million Seek Exercise Book Back to School Trophy open allowance feature over 1300 metres at Caymanas Park yesterday, turning the tables on recent conqueror TRADITIONAL PRINCE. Installed a 3-2 favourite with title-chasing jockey Robert Halledeen riding for champion trainer Wayne DaCosta, FORTUNEONEHUNDRED coming off a narrow loss to TRADITIONAL PRINCE in the August 1 Betting, Gaming and Lotteries Commission Trophy over 1100 metres, beat his old rival by 1-1/2 lengths in a field of eight, covering the distance in the smart time of 1:17.3. With less speed to contend with on this occasion, FORTUNEONEHUNDRED broke winging and led comfortably from PETE’SWILDONE (Omar Walker up), RIO COBRE and TRADITIONAL PRINCE. He turned for home some three lengths clear of PETE’SWILD ONE and when TRADITIONAL PRINCE loomed large on the rails leaving the furlong pole, FOIRTUNEONEHUNDRED responded to a torrid right hand stick from Halledeen to hold him at bay. A 5-y-o chestnut gelding by Keyed Entry out of My Bridlewood, FORTUNEONEHUNDRED has now won eight races from 28 starts and $4.6 million in stakes. Walker highlighted the Seek raceday programme, sponsored by Book Empire Limited, with three winners – the 2-y-o debutante NUCLEAR AFFAIR, CLASSY PROSPECT and DREAMCOMETRUE in the final race to move to 49 winners, just one adrift of joint leaders Shane Ellis and Halledeen in the intriguing jockeys’ championship. The Seek Back to School Gimmick race over 1000 metres was won in post to post fashion by noted 5K runner Kirk Brown (7-5 favourite) ahead of Tevin Smith, who chased him relentlessly, with Andrew Gutzmore third. 8 WINS FROM 28 STARTSlast_img read more

Man United player ratings as stars are booed after draw with Crystal Palace

first_img David de Gea was his usual reliable self for United 5 Matteo Darmian – 6It might say everything that one of United’s best attacking players today was their right-back. The Italian had plenty of freedom on the right flank and produced a number of dangerous crosses into the box, but Palace’s dogged back-four were superb at swatting away the danger.Chris Smalling – 4Missed a glorious chance early in the first-half when, unmarked at the back post and with the goalkeeper stranded, he headed the ball wide from a corner. At least the only mistake he made was not in front of his own goal, this time.Victor Lindelöf – 6The Swede wasn’t troubled too much, although he did allow Andros Townsend to run through for a great scoring chance (which he missed, obviously). Was clearly injured towards the end of the game but, with all three subs used, kept going admirably and, limping, helped thwart a late Palace attack. SUB: Fellaini – 4The new-look Belgian – who has shaved off his trademark fro – did little but add a bit more steel to United’s midfield. Could have caused serious injury to Luka Milivojevic when he caught him with a studs-up challenge.SUB: Marcus Rashford – 6The young Englishman brought a new sense of energy to the side when he came off the bench and was a big threat on the right wing. Had a late chance for a winner blocked. Why he didn’t start the game is a mystery.SUB: Alexis Sanchez – 6Helped link up attacking play better when he came on in the second-half, but he certainly doesn’t look the same player who won games almost single-handedly for Arsenal. Juan Mata (subbed on 59 mins) – 5Appears to be United’s only midfielder with any cutting edge in the final-third at the moment, but even he struggled to create today. His brilliant through-ball played in Lingard in the first-half, but the resulting shot was saved.Anthony Martial – 6Looked bereft of confidence, lacked a first-touch and often gave away possession. He did look bright with the ball at his feet, but his driving runs amounted to pretty much nothing. Should have done better with an open header in the first-half which was easily saved, and also shot wide in the closing stages when he should have hit the target at least.Romelu Lukaku – 5It’s clear to see why fans are at their wits end with the Belgian striker. It was another quiet game for the 25-year-old, although he did have a goal chalked out for offside and was close to a late winning goal with his head. Overall, though, he offered very little – and that is, perhaps, being kind. More boos rang out from the Old Trafford stands as Manchester United fans saw their side held to a draw against Crystal Palace on Saturday.Jose Mourinho’s men lost more ground on their top-four Premier League rivals as they suffered a frustrating afternoon in a performance that lacked energy and synergy. Ashley Young – 5Found himself in acres of space on the left so many times, but didn’t make the most of it. Often delayed his cross to cut in and then send it with his right foot, which allowed Palace defenders to recover and then clear. United really missed Luke Shaw today, and who would have said that a few months ago?Jesse Lingard (subbed on 59 mins) – 6Provided United’s first real shot on goal in the first half, a low close-range effort from Juan Mata’s pass, which was well saved by Wayne Hennessey. Always a willing runner, but was capably marshalled by a well-drilled Palace back-four.Nemanja Matic – 6United’s midfield kingpin, Matic got to pretty much everything in midfield and was always an outlet to help spread play and keep possession – it’s just a shame he was let down by his attacking team-mates.Paul Pogba (subbed on 68 mins) – 4Another frustrating afternoon for the World Cup winner, who doesn’t seem to know where he is best suited to playing for United. He popped up in all sorts of positions and didn’t really do anything of note in any of them. A long-range shot which he drilled over the bar was his only moment of any note. 5 Lindelof limps off after completing the 90 minutes despite an injury center_img Pogba again struggled to have any influence for United 5 It was another poor display from United Lukaku has not gone 11 games without scoring for United Until perhaps the final 20 minutes, Crystal Palace were the more dangerous team, missing two or three glorious opportunities, and there may be some Eagles fans who will disappointed they didn’t sneak a victory against the below-par Red Devils.Both teams had goals chalked off for offside, with Cheikhou Kouyate and Romelu Lukaku having their headers ruled out by the linesman’s flag.But teams both had their goalkeepers to thank for a number of brilliant saves which kept it scoreless – although it was clear the home supporters were not happy about that fact when the full-time whistle was blown, as a chorus of boos rang out from the stands.How did the United team perform individually? Scroll down for talkSPORT.com’s player ratings…David De Gea – 7Had little to do, but was there when called upon. The Spaniard dived superbly to his right to deny a strong shot from Kouyate, and then recovered to block Patrick van Aanholt’s follow-up attempt. Crystal Palace piled the pressure on United, but only managed two shots on target. 5 5last_img read more

CRAZED COCAINE CRIMINAL HEAD-BUTTED AND BIT GARDA

first_imgA THUG who bit and then head butted a Garda has appeared in court on several different charges.Michael Devlin, from Manor Court in Convoy, pleaded guilty to charges relating to incidents on separate nights in 2012.The most serious incidents occurred on May 27, 2012. Inspector Michael Harrison told Judge Paul Kelly at Letterkenny District Court that 20-year-old Devlin came to the attention of Gardai outside a nightclub at 2.30am that morning.Officers spotted Devlin throwing punches in the middle of a crowd and he was arrested.On the way to Milford Garda Station Devlin told one Garda: “I’m going to f***ing stab you. I know where you live. I’ll bite your f***ing ears off.”On arrival at the station, said the Inspector, Devlin continued to behave in an aggressive manner.He then head butted Garda Paddy Ryan before biting the officer on the thigh.“Garda Ryan said his leg began to bleed and he could see the teeth marks,” said the Inspector.The garda lost some blood as a result of the attack and had to receive a tetanus jab and antibiotics. He was off work for a week as a result and had to wait several weeks for blood test results.Whilst out on bail for those offences, Devlin started a row with Gardai in his native Convoy on August 12 2012.Devlin had started a row a number of people at The Green, Convoy. He was warned to move on but instead became aggressive towards gardai and was arrested.Defence solicitor Patsy Gallagher said Devlin is currently on a back to education programme and is due to become a dad for the second time.“He is more settled now. He fell in with the wrong crowd and is no longer associating with those people.“At the time of these incidents he was using class A drugs. He apologises profusely for what happened – he was completely high and stoned – on both cocaine and cannabis.”Judge Paul Kelly adjourned sentencing until February 17 next for reports.CRAZED COCAINE CRIMINAL HEAD-BUTTED AND BIT GARDA was last modified: December 19th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:assaulting gardaiconvoyDowningsLetterkenny CourtMichael Devlinlast_img read more

‘Legend!’ – Chelsea fans want Lampard back

first_imgMany Chelsea fans on Twitter want to see Frank Lampard back at Stamford Bridge after the former England midfielder announced his departure from New York City FC.Lampard confirmed on Monday he will be leaving the MLS club when his contract expires at the end of the year.On his Instagram account, he said he would be “making an announcement very soon” about the next stage of his career – and many Blues fans hope he will return to Chelsea as a coach.100% keeping my fingers crossed Super Frank comes back to Chelsea in some capacity to get his coaching badges. Legend. #CFC— Matt Annis⚽️ (@MattPandaAnnis) November 14, 2016Would love to see Super Frank in the Chelsea dugout as an assistant . JT and Lampard 👍🏼😁#cfc #Lampard— Vignesh Kumar (@RvigneshK) November 14, 2016Frank Lampard will always be super and always welcomed back to Chelsea.

Hopefully comes back to Chelsea and works in the backroom— Christopher Phillips (@Chris101188) November 14, 2016Come back to chelsea as a coach frankie #CFC— Ahmed AlMeer (@ahmedalmeer11) November 14, 2016Some Chelsea supporters even think the 38-year-old still has something to offer on the pitch, and want him to add to his 648 appearances and 211 goals for the Blues.Lampard leaving New York City, scored 15 goals in 31 apps. Get him back at Chelsea!!!— CURTIS (@LCurtis100) November 14, 2016Would be a missed opportunity for us to not re-sign Frank Lampard. His contribution both on and off the pitch would be so valuable. #CFC— Rory Jennings (@Chelsearory) November 14, 2016Conte has done so much for our club already but IF he can bring Lampard back and let him finish his career at Chelsea would be FANTASTIC.— Lampsy (@hlampsy) November 14, 2016Sign Lampard now !!!!! @ChelseaFC— Stormbringer 是 (@MaximeAds_) November 14, 2016I know we have many targets but bringing Lampard back should be our priority in January 😎😎#CFC— CFC Tweet (@CFCTWEET__) November 14, 2016However, for others Lampard’s return would be purely sentimental.Having Drogba/Lamps as assistant coaches under, say, Mourinho makes sense because they know his methods. It’s not the case with Conte.— #4.
