“He’s a mile-and-a-half to a two-mile horse. He quickens, and I think that’s made the difference. “I’ve always wanted to win this race. It’s very hard to do it, so it’s a great day.” Connections could now consider supplementing Trip To Paris for the Gold Cup at Royal Ascot. “This is a similar type of horse to Red Cadeaux and he’s improving all the time,” said Dunlop. “We might supplement him for the Gold Cup, but I think we’ll wait and see. “This horse relaxes. He wore blinkers as a colt (now a gelding) because he was lazy, but he can stay this far and he’s got a good turn of foot. “We don’t have to do anything with him at home now as he’s got a wonderful temperament. He’s become a man this year.” On a possible trip to Australia for the Melbourne Cup in the autumn, the Newmarket handler said: “He’s got to rise in the weights to get into the Melbourne Cup this year. “Maybe we’ll take two (Trip To Paris and Red Cadeaux) to halve the expense.” Press Association Lee said: “He was hanging badly left, and I ended up dropping the reins along the straight. “He’s always travelled well and he showed at Ripon he’s got a turn of foot.” The landscape of the race did not alter too much until the final five furlongs when the front-running Buthelezi faded out of the picture. John Reel was always to the fore and gained a slight advantage, but the Irish duo were hot on his heels and ended up jousting for top honours two furlongs out. Just when it looked like the versatile Quick Jack had the edge over Zafayan, Trip To Paris suddenly darted into contention and ended up scoring by three-quarters of a length on his first try at beyond two miles. Gabrial’s King completed the minor positions in fourth place. Dunlop, whose inmate was bringing up a hat-trick following victories at Lingfield and Ripon, said: “The horse was amazing. “It’s the first time he’s run at that trip – he’s been a revelation. I made the strange entry and he’s won. Trained by Ed Dunlop and ridden by Graham Lee, the four-year-old (10-1) arrived with a last-gasp charge from the outside of the field. Tony Martin’s Quick Jack finished second as the 4-1 favourite, while the Dermot Weld-trained Zafayan was third. Trip To Paris denied the Irish raiders when coming with a power-packed late run to claim the Betway Chester Cup.
GUYANA’S U-17 team suffered another defeat at the CONCACAF Championship yesterday, falling 0-3 to Honduras, played at the IMG Academy (Field 11), Bradenton, Florida. The Sampson Gilbert-coached unit had lost their opening game of the tournament 4-0 when they came up against El Salvador, and were hoping for at least a credible performance against another Central American side, but, things didn’t go in their favour.Guyana trailed at the end of the first half 0–1, when forward Jeffrey Miranda netted for Honduras in the 14th minute.In the second stanza, Guyana were reduced to 10 men, after Shannon Samnauth picked up his second ‘yellow’ of the already lopsided affair in the 61st minute.Honduras capitalised on the wounded Guyanese team, who saw Miguel Carrasco net the game’s second goal in the 64th minute, while Miranda completed his double when he found the back of the net in the 67th minute, to give Honduras their first win of the tournament, since they lost 0-2 to Haiti in their first game.Guyana will play their final Group G game against the undefeated Haiti tomorrow at 10:00hrs.

* Chelsea defeats Southampton 4-2 to go seven points clear at the topNigeria and Chelsea striker, Victor Moses, and three other Blues players werelisted in the BBC Team of the Week released on Tuesday.The Super Eagles winger whose career was revived with the arrival of Italian Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge was included in the team of the week following his stellar performance for Chelsea last weekend after his contribution led to the 4-2 defeat of Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup semi-finals. Moses featured in the game for 90 minutes, putting in a man of the match performance, including winning the vital penalty that helped Chelsea go into the half time break leading 2-1.His performances under Conte has made him a regular in the team after years of being out on loan from the club during the coaching spells under a number of other coaches.Moses is making the team of the week, assembled by the BBC for the fourth time this season, a sign of how influential and useful he has become for the title favourite.Meanwhile, Diego Costa scored twice as Premier League leaders Chelsea edged closer to the title with victory over Southampton at Stamford Bridge last night.The Spaniard, Eden Hazard and Gary Cahill – all back in the starting XI – got the goals that extended the Blues’ advantage over second-placed Tottenham to seven points.Hazard opened the scoring with a low strike before Oriol Romeu tapped in.Cahill’s header made 2-1 before Costa nodded in and the scored a well-taken second.And in stoppage time, former Chelsea player Ryan Bertrand scored a fine header for the Saints.Blues captain John Terry, who is leaving the club at the end of the season, came on late in the match for Moses to make his first league appearance since November.Spurs can reduce the gap to four points once more with victory at Crystal Palace today.Antonio Conte’s Chelsea team is playing at Everton on Sunday.BBC’s Team of The Week:(Goalkeeper)Eldin Jakupovic (Hull City)(Defenders)David Luiz (Chelsea)*Victor Moses (Chelsea)*Gabriel Paulista (Arsenal)Nacho Monreal (Arsenal)(Midfielders)Christian Eriksen (Tottenham Hotspur)Willian (Chelsea)N’Golo Kante (Chelsea)Dele Alli (Tottenham Hotspur)Kamil Grosicki (Hull City)(Attacker)Christian Benteke (Crystal Palace)Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
Photo © Pat Flynn Leinster will have to make do without Cian Healy for Sunday’s European Champions Cup semi-final against Clermont.The 29 year old has been handed a two-week ban after he was found guilty of “committing an act of foul play” in last weekend’s win over Connacht.Healy was cited after the incident was missed by the match officials.
Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri felt that the teenager should not have responded to the racist chants – but called for the “idiots” responsible to be handed lifetime bans.“He shouldn’t have celebrated in that manner,” he said. “You need great intelligence to deal with these situations and should not go to provoke people. That, of course, does not mean the idiots in the crowd and the way they reacted should be justified.“We need to use the cameras, find those who are doing it and punish them. It’s very simple, identify them, and not one-year ban or two, just give them a lifetime ban.“We’ve got the technology, it can be done if the authorities want to. The problem is, they don’t really want to.”Juve team-mate Leonardo Bonucci also said after the match his team-mate should not have provoked the home fans.The defender said: “There were racist jeers after the goal, Blaise heard it and was angered. I think the blame is 50-50, because Moise shouldn’t have celebrated like that, and the Curva should not have reacted that way.“We are professionals, we have to set the example and not provoke anyone.”Juventus players, led by captain Giorgio Chiellini, had protested to referee Piero Giacomelli, who was also in conversations with both managers.Cagliari skipper Luca Ceppitelli went over to the fans behind the goal, appealing for the chants to stop, while France midfielder Blaise Matuidi appeared to gesture to Allegri to take his players off.When play did continue, an announcement went out over the public address system to highlight the issue, which was greeted by more jeers from some home supporters before the final whistle came after five minutes of added time. Massimiliano Allegri says Kean should not have responded Juventus forward Moise Kean was subjected to racist abuse from the stands as the Serie A leaders won 2-0 at Cagliari, but the 19-year-old took a stance of defiance after scoring a late second goal.The Italy international was abused all night by sections of the home support, with monkey chants aimed at him, but had the final say by netting Juve’s second goal with five minutes left.The teenager stood at the post, his arms aloft in response to the chants. Joao Cancelo comforts Kean after the final whistle The incident came eight days after England players were subjected to racist abuse during their Euro 2020 qualifier in Montenegro, and on the day UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin insisted referees would be told to be “brave” and halt matches to stamp out such abuse from “loud, aggressive and primitive” people.Kean, whose goal added to Bonucci’s towering header in the 22nd minute, was handed a start by Allegri at the Sardegna Arena with Mario Mandzukic laid low by illness.He had impressed when finding the net against both Finland and Liechtenstein for Italy, before then following it up with the winner over Empoli after coming off the bench.In the other Serie A match on Tuesday, AC Milan drew 1-1 with Udinese.–Source: Sky Sports
“It’s just more magnified. These guys have taken 40, 50 at-bats. I absolutely understand that it’s a shorter season. But they’re going to get going.”A career .303 hitter with a .911 OPS in the leadoff spot, Betts has gone 7 for 21 with a .417 on-base percentage in his five starts there this season while batting .250 (10 for 40) with a .286 on-base percentage batting second.But Roberts doesn’t believe in trickle-down economics. Moving Betts into the leadoff spot wouldn’t be a panacea for the Dodgers’ other offensive woes, he said.“Certainly you talk about the leadoff hitter, the role, the spark — I absolutely understand that,” Roberts said. “But you look up and down our lineup, there’s really not anyone swinging the bat considerably well. So just to have Mookie in the leadoff role I don’t think makes everybody in the order get hot.“When you’re talking about one player and lineup construction where he hits leadoff once a game, the numbers to last year are very similar as far as (Betts’) production. Now you’re taking in eight other players in a lineup that particular game that matter as well. So when you potentially give them matchups and make it a little more difficult for the opposing managers, I think that has some value too.”SEAGER PROGRESSFor the second consecutive day, injured shortstop Corey Seager tested his back by doing agility drills, running, swinging a bat and playing catch.“He came out of it feeling good,” Roberts said. “It’s just going to be a slow progression. I don’t know when he’s going to get on the field and take batting practice, take grounders at full speed. Then we’ll know more.”Roberts said the Dodgers still do not feel it’s necessary to put Seager on the injured list despite playing shorthanded for a fourth consecutive game Tuesday.“Right now we’re OK with the versatility we have to just stand pat,” Roberts said.GONSOLIN STARTThe Dodgers have yet to start a pitcher on less than five days’ rest this season. And they’re not about to start now.In the midst of a stretch of 17 consecutive days with games, Roberts said the Dodgers will promote right-hander Tony Gonsolin to start Wednesday’s game against the San Diego Padres, pushing left-hander Julio Urias (and the rest of the rotation) back a day.“I think right now, trying to appreciate that we’ve got 17 in a row and we want to make sure that we really take care of the starters and pitchers in general,” Roberts said. “So I think right now to give them the extra day over a few turns, I think makes sense for everybody. And, we can kind of push them a little bit more as we get into September.”This has become standard procedure for the Dodgers. Over the previous three seasons, their starting pitcher has been operating on five days’ rest or more in 70 percent (339 of 487) of their regular-season games.“It’s not just a Julio thing,” Roberts said of Urias who is 1-0 with a 2.40 ERA after his first three starts. “I think it’s a good thing for all of our starters.”ALSOReliever Joe Kelly did have the hearing for his appeal of an eight-game suspension on Monday. The Dodgers are awaiting word on the decision.Related Articles “That’s kind of been my whole career,” he said accurately — 567 of his 794 career starts in the big leagues have been at the top of the order. “I don’t foresee hitting somewhere else. If there’s a need then I’m always ready if it needs to happen.“I’d like to hit in one spot. I don’t like moving around. … I think it’s just a comfort level for me. I can only speak for myself, to know that every day I’m going to be in the lineup, batting first.”But Betts has started as the leadoff hitter just five times in the first 18 games since signing a 12-year contract extension with the Dodgers. Instead, Joc Pederson (seven) and Max Muncy (five) have appeared there more often with Betts batting second as Roberts seeks a “left-right” lineup that makes it more difficult for opposing managers to make pitching decisions (particularly with the new three-batter rule for pitchers).The results have not been good. Despite overall good production that puts them near the top of the National League in most offensive categories, the Dodgers’ lineup has had some soft spots and the leadoff spot is one. Going into Tuesday’s game, the Dodgers’ leadoff hitters had combined for a .188 average and .685 OPS.“Obviously having Muncy in there at times, he’s a traditional on-base guy and he’s just not swinging the bat well,” Roberts said Tuesday. “Right now, he’s just in a little bit of a funk. He’s going to get out of it. I don’t think the leadoff spot is the reason. Joc has hit leadoff many times over for us in years past. And he’s just not swinging the bat well.

Vogel (whose Philadelphia Eagles are already out of the playoffs) said he found it compelling that Davis brought teammates with him to join the experience. He pointed to it as a sign of the Lakers’ team chemistry, which he said has been player-driven since before the season started.“This group really likes being around each other,” he said. “We like coming to work, and they enjoy being around each other, particularly the players, and I think LeBron set that tone with the Vegas minicamp, whatever you want to call it, volunteer-type deal where everybody went. Got some light work in, but it was really about them having fun together and getting to know each other off the court. I think what A.D. did this recent weekend is an extension of that.” Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs Davis is a rabid fan of the Green Bay Packers, who bested the Seattle Seahawks in a 28-23 win in the divisional round on Sunday. Caldwell-Pope did his own version of the famed “Lambeau Leap,” jumping up into the stands and being embraced by the crowd.It might seem a head-scratcher as to how a Chicago native became a cheesehead. Davis said he wasn’t a football fan growing up, but he picked the Packers as his team when he got to the NBA because he knew some of the players. Ever since, he’s been a devoted fan, even though his family members – who are fans of the hometown Chicago Bears – give him grief.“My dad pulls his hair out every day trying to figure out how I’m a Packers fan,” he said. “But hey, man, it’s football at the end of the day. It’s not life or death.”Related Articles AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersCoach Frank Vogel acknowledged the success, which he’s happy about, but also didn’t want to jest less it be taken out of context: “I was gonna make a joke, but I’m not gonna joke because we definitely need Anthony Davis.”What’s gone right for the Lakers without A.D.? Pace, Davis said, which has driven high-octane offense. Over the last three games, the Lakers have the best offensive rating (128.2 points per 100 possessions) of any team in the NBA. They’ve scored at least 40 points in a quarter in all three games, and they’ve reset their season-best scoring mark in a half in back-to-back games after pouring in 81 in the second half against the Cavaliers on Monday night.The Lakers already know Rajon Rondo (right ring finger avulsion) won’t play Wednesday against Orlando, but Davis is still hopeful. While Vogel said Davis was still moving “gingerly” in the light work he did Tuesday afternoon, Davis said he’s progressing. He’s yet to do full sprinting or take any contact on the court – those are the final thresholds he’s looking to reach.“When I feel like I’m able to get back to my old self and do the moves I’ve always done and be successful at it,” he said, “that’s when I’ll be able to get back on the floor.”MAKING THE LAMBEAU LEAPAn offseason Sunday became a cross-country trek for several Lakers: Davis treated Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, JaVale McGee, Rajon Rondo and assistant coach Mike Penberthy to a sojourn to Wisconsin, where the group took in a brisk NFL playoff matchup. Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years EL SEGUNDO — Make no mistake: Anthony Davis is working.For the last few days, he’s gone through drills, trying to see how his body is moving and how his soreness is improving from when he took a hard fall a week ago in a home game against the Knicks. But the urgency to recover from a bruised backside has waned ever so slightly – after all, the Lakers are 3-0 since he got hurt.“I’m getting closer to getting back on the floor with these guys,” he joked. “But the last three games, it looks like they don’t need me. So kind of taking it slower than usual.”For the rest of the Lakers, however, it’s not quite such a laughing matter. While the team has capably covered for him for the past week and gotten a chance to showcase its depth, teammates are hoping Davis, who is listed as questionable for Wednesday’s game against the Orlando Magic, comes back soon.

He then left AFTER his contract had been fulfilled. He moved on to win a championship something he will never do in cleveland. He returns for the money and to try and prove he is the best all time…he is not. .but at least he came back to a city that turned their back on him. Burned his jersey in the street and pulled down all the banners off the buildings around the city…not sure the classless fans of cleveland deserve King James. Seems like he gave them a second chance not the other way around.

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments Commentary by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow â€” I believe Lebron James.James is coming back to the Cleveland Cavaliers after a four-year stint with the Miami Heat. He gives his reasons here.Thereâ€™s plenty of cynicism out thereÂ â€” James is self serving, he is just piecing another dream team together in Cleveland, that the guy is being disingenuous. Lebron James goes from Cleveland to Miami back to Cleveland.But I think heâ€™s telling the truth. He wants to come home to prove something to himself.Why do I feel that way? Because I went through the same thing a few years back.I remember the day I left the Wellington Daily News the first time in 2002 – not really by choice. I was mad and determined to take my family and split. There was nothing else left here to accomplish. I had an enemies list a mile long, I hated the school, I hated the town. I had worn out my welcome.Â But pulling up stakes was no easy proposition. My wife had a thriving practice and this was my kid’s home. There were so many variables that we couldnâ€™t make the move at the time. So I decided it was time for me to work elsewhere.Iâ€™m glad I did. My five years away from Wellington covering sports events in Derby and Winfield were good ones. I enjoyed Derby because those teams always won. Winfield is just a great town.But in 2007 when a sports editor job opened up at the Wellington Daily News, my wife suggested I take it. And for some reason, it felt like it was the right thing to do. I was ready to come home.Yes, I was back to working for the corporate idiots who ruined one of the best small town dailies in the state of Kansas. But it wasnâ€™t about that. It was about covering Crusader football again and boy did I miss that. It was about returning to the scene of the crime for which my enemies list grew exponentially in the late 1990s. It was about being with my family a lot more.And you know what? Things changed. The Wellington football team wasnâ€™t quite as good as when I left it (as if the football team depended on a bald headed sports writer to win games). But the girls basketball program was on the rise and the Wellington tennis teams were playing some mean volleys. Wellington has always taken a wrap for being the same. But it’s amazing how things changed in a five-year span. Â There were some old faces, but there were a lot of new ones and the dynamics of Â community Â had changed.And that lengthy enemies list I had? Well, that was no more. The people had either moved on or got over whatever silly little tiff we might have had. The thing Iâ€™ve learned in the news business that your friends donâ€™t stay for long, but neither do your enemies.Plus, Wellington was different because I was different. A lot of the things that bothered me then, no longer bothered me.Of course, five years later I was thrown out the door again at the Wellington weakly. But this time it didnâ€™t manner. It allowed me to start Sumner Newscow and I was onto another chapter in my life.So when Lebron James says heâ€™s going home because of unfinished business, I believe him.Oh, of course, there it the potential that the Cavs can become very, very good. He wouldnâ€™t come back if say the Cavs were the Milwaukee Bucks.But it’s more than that. James could build another dream team in Los Angeles. James probably needs to do this for himself. To right whatever ship he thinks he has wronged.People ponder why he would return when Lebron shirt burning hating Cav fans acted so badly when he left, and an owner who was a complete petty crybaby with a diatribe on the Cavalier website that stayed there for four years.Because, that is part of the charm of going back. All is forgiven. Had James stayed in Miami, nothing would be forgiven.James left for greener pasture. Now he has come home to eat the grass on his turf.But he is not alone. Tons of people have a desire to come home. Donâ€™t believe me? I should do a story on the ton of hits I receive on this website from people across the United States. Itâ€™s not because Sumner Newscow is nationally claimed website searched out by millions.Â Itâ€™s because there are tons of Wellington alumni wanting to know whatâ€™s happening in their home town.Why do you think there were such large gatherings at reunions or at drinking establishments this weekend during the Kansas Wheat Festival? Why has there lately been a resurgence of people moving back to Wellington?Because Wellington is home.Wellington has warts, thatâ€™s for sure. But itâ€™s our warts. And people want to share those warts with one another.There is nothing wrong with a desire to come back home – as imperfect as that home might be.Ohio is Jamesâ€™ home just like Wellington is your home.There is nothing wrong with that.Follow us on Twitter.
Potential No. 1 NBA Draft pick James Wiseman was ruled ineligible by the NCAA on Friday.The decision stems from Memphis coach Penny Hardaway, who helped Wiseman’s family move to Memphis in 2017. But Wiseman was made available and started for the Tigers shortly after the ruling due to a restraining order issued by a Tennessee judge. Social media still brought plenty of heat toward the NCAA regarding its discipline of Wiseman, which came to light less than 12 hours after Ohio State announced it suspended defensive end Chase Young for one game pending an NCAA investigation into improper benefits.NBA MOCK DRAFT 2020: James Wiseman a top-five pick in SN’s latestIt’s official.
