Morey Revocable TrustTrainer:  William MoreyWinless in just four starts since taking last year’s Turf Classic, this 6-year-old full horse by English Channel, out of the Unusual Heat mare Phi Beta Heat, was most recently an even fourth, beaten five lengths in a six furlong classified allowance versus open company at Golden Gate Fields Jan. 10.  Having been idle since well beaten here in the one mile turf Crystal Water Stakes on May 20, Rye could certainly improve by many lengths in his second start off the bench.  With last year’s Turf Classic jock Kent Desormeaux back aboard, look for Rye to drop far back early as he tries to make a big run from off the pace.HE WILLOwner:  All Schlaich Stables, LLC, Hollendorfer, LLC, Team Green, LLC, Randall & TodaroTrainer:  Jerry HollendorferA 7-year-old full horse by Cyclotron, out of the Lear Fan mare Could She, He Will was far back early in a one mile turf allowance versus statebreds Dec. 31 and flattened out late to finish fourth, beaten three lengths as the 2-1 favorite.  Fourth, beaten one length by Rye in last year’s Turf Classic, He Will should have a fast pace to run at with Geovanni Franco aboard for the first time.THE UNUSUAL HEAT TURF CLASSIC WITH JOCKEYS & WEIGHTS IN POST POSITION ORDERRace 11 of 11                                  Approximate post time 4:40 p.m. PTAccountability–Joe Talamo–120Unusually Green–Luis Ocasio–120Rye–Kent Desormeaux–122The Street Fighter–Tiago Pereira–120Marckie’s Water–Mario Gutierrez–120Incredible Luck–Edgar Payeras–120Camino Del Paraiso–Ricardo Gonzalez–120Tough It Out–Brice Blanc–120Ashleyluvssugar–Tyler Baze–120King Abner–Drayden Van Dyke–120He Will–Geovanni Franco–120Special early first post time for an 11-race card on Saturday is at 11:30 a.m.  Admission gates will open at 9:30 a.m. and Santa Anita’s Top ‘O The Stretch area will be open for Early Bird wagering at  8 a.m.  Saturday is also Pegasus World Cup Day, as the $9 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational and the $7 Pegasus World Cup Turf Invitational will highlight a blockbuster card from Gulfstream Park.For additional information, please visit santaanita.com or call (626) 574-RACE.last_img read more

James seemingly knocked out – as Mason hits out at medics after playing on

Yet three minutes later he has been allowed back onto the pitch.”According to reports, James was put through all concussion protocols and passed them, with the Welsh medical staff deeming him fit to play.Ryan Giggs sensationally claimed after the match that James was just “acting”.He said:”Daniel James went down and stayed down with a bit of acting.”But the medical staff went over, he was compos mentis and we did all the checks at half-time and he was fine.”4 James could be seen lying on his back and was not movingCredit: Sky Sports4 Opposition players and Wales team-mates rushed to check James was OKCredit: Getty Images – GettyMOST READ IN FOOTBALLTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for himlast_img read more

Spurs ratings: Lo Celso impressed at Southampton but Lucas not a Kane replacement

admin no comments

first_imgTOTTENHAM will have to play yet another FA Cup replay after Southampton pegged them back late on at St Mary’s.Son Heung-min’s second half strike was cancelled out in the 86th minute by Sofiane Boufal three minutes from time.2 Lucas missed a golden chance in the first half and faded late onLucas Moura missed a one-on-one opportunity in the first half as keeper Angus Gunn kept him out with his left leg.Meanwhile, Argentine midfield maestro Giovani Lo Celso put himself in the frame to be Christian Eriksen’s long-term replacement with an excellent performance in the middle of the park.Dylan Terry watched the game, here’s how he saw the Tottenham players performances…HUGO LLORIS – 6What he had to do he did with confidence and assurance.He was uncharacteristically calm under pressure, with his only lapse in concentration coming when he was caught between two stalls and lobbed by Ings.Luckily for the Frenchman, Tanganga brilliantly bailed him out so it was not a costly error.SERGE AURIER – 6Performed well down the right, although was overshadowed by the defensive display of Tanganga.Always offered a creative outlet going forward and ultimately managed to avoid any silly challenges going the other way.A game without an Aurier blunder is one many Spurs fans will see as a win.TOBY ALDERWEIRELD – 6His distribution is never in question as he was able to pick out Lucas with a peach of a long ball midway through the first half.But his age is beginning to show as he was caught napping several times when Ings found space in behind.The Belgian’s experience is key to ensuring Sanchez does not go wandering, but you wonder if moving Tanganga inside may be the better long-term option.DAVINSON SANCHEZ – 6Was man-handled at times by Danny Ings as the English striker was able to find space in between the two centre-halves all too easily.Still lacks the ability to pick a pass going forward, but is crucial to the Spurs side given Alderweireld’s lack of pace.JAPHET TANGANGA – 8Was an absolute rock at the back for Tottenham as he dealt with the pace of Obafemi supremely well.His goal-saving clearance on the line in the first half was one of the highlights of the game.Keeping Vertonghen out of the team may become a more regular occurence after today’s impressive performance.HARRY WINKS – 6Didn’t have the best of games compared to Lo Celso, but allowed the Argentine to play by shielding the back four well.The Spurs midfield undoubtedly look more assured with Winks in the team, even if his contribution does not light up the game like others do.However, his display will not have caught the eye of Mourinho, who seems to favour others in that position.GEDSON FERNANDES – 5A very quiet opening game for the new signing.He often seemed to be caught in two minds as to whether to stay with Winks or go and help create with Lo Celso.Will obviously take him a while to figure out exactly what Mourinho wants from him, but he hasn’t managed to hit the ground running.2 Lo Celso set up Son for the opening goal of the gameCredit: PA:Press AssociationGIOVANI LO CELSO – 8The best creative outlet for Spurs in what was an end-to-end encounter.Lo Celso picked out Son for the goal and nearly managed to repeated the feat moments later, but for the South Korean to rifle over.Really seems to be brimming with confidence now in that attacking midfield role – just what Mourinho would have wanted to see given the imminent departure of Christian Eriksen.DELE ALLI – 6Another who had a quiet game by all accounts, although is also an integral cog in Mourinho’s wheel.The movement of Son and Lucas was what made Spurs tick and Alli gave them the space with his runs into the area.SON HEUNG-MIN – 7Scored the opener with a wonderfully taken shot into the far corner, Harry Kane-esque.Missed a couple more decent chances when Spurs could have put the game to bed at 1-0, not so Kane-esque.Son is still clearly the best forward outlet Mourinho has at his disposal, but it is clear they do miss their talisman.LUCAS MOURA – 5His ability to lose the centre-half marking him is a trait Lucas Moura posesses in abundance.However, his finishing is a whole other story, in this game anyway.The one-on-one he spurned in the first half was the mark of someone not too confident in front of goal.And he began to tire in the second half, failing to provide the Tottenham defence with an effective outlet to deter the relentless pressure.LATETS FOOTBALL NEWSGossipCROWD RETURNFA Cup final ‘may see 20,000 at Wembley in trial allowing some fans at

product.Could potentially force his way into the team given the poor display by Lucas, but didn’t pull up any trees.ERIC DIER – 6Came on for Dele Alli just after Southampton scored and contributed to the defensive effort in the final few minutes.In his limited time on the pitch he failed to show he can offer an attacking outlet, but didn;t do anything stupid or reckless.last_img read more

Federer liquidates Krajinovic to plant himself in Australia’s third round

admin no comments

first_img“I am very happy and I am feeling very relaxed on the track. I am already waiting for my next game, which I hope is good too,” said the Swiss after finishing his second appearance at Melbourne Park.Federer, who played for the twenty-first time in a row the second round in Australia, repeated the fine version he wore in his debut against American Steve Johnson.The overwhelming superiority retained Krajinovic always far away on the scoreboard and his moments of inspiration were limited to single winning shots without any significance.The Basel tennis player, who will look for his twenty-one Grand Slam, will have John Millman as the next rival, who beat Poland’s Hubert Hurkacz (31) 6-4, 7-5 and 6-3.The tennis player from Queensland (Australia) will be, in principle, a more complicated rival for Federer because he knows what it is to eliminate the Swiss tennis player from a Grand Slam after his victory at the 2018 Australian Open by 3-6, 7-5, 7-6 (7) and 7-6 (3). The Swiss Roger Federer (3) went over the Serbian Filip Krajinovic to enter the third round of the Australian Open after winning 6-1, 6-4 and 6-1.

Carles Pérez, to Rome for € 13M

admin no comments

first_imgAs Onda Cero advanced, Carles Pérez will travel to Italy on Tuesday to sign the contract that will join Rome in the coming seasons. The giallorosso club has seduced the striker and has reached an agreement with Barça, which he will pay 13 million euros for the transfer. In principle, and according to the statements of Petrachi, sports director of Rome, no repurchase option for the azulgrana. Carles Pérez will be Barça’s third casualty in this winter market after Todibo and Aleñá, assigned to Schalke and Betis respectively. Setién told the player on Friday that they did not have him while the club was already negotiating with the Romanian club, where Carles Pérez will not have easy play with extremes like Kluivert or Under. Barça still does not incorporate a single player in the winter market and has already lost three.Carles Pérez, given as an example of love for some colors recently, is already another merchandise in the history of the Barça club. Barça’s treatment of the player has surprised Carles Pérez himself, his surroundings and the partner.last_img read more
