first_imgOrchestra narrowly held off Romsdal to give Aidan O’Brien another winner in the MBNA Chester Vase. The Ballydoyle inmate appeared set to convincingly claim the Group Three over an extended mile and a half as he breezed into the lead two furlongs out, getting the perfect gap on the rail. But the 3-1 favourite suddenly found himself in a slightly compromising position as the John Gosden-trained Romsdal arrived late and fast under William Buick. It took a photo-finish to separate the protagonists, with the Ryan Moore-ridden Orchestra taking top honours by a nose. Scotland stayed on for third, another eight lengths in arrears. Moore said: “It was a perfect trip but I was on the best horse. “I was trying to be nice to him. He’s a lovely horse. He travelled around beautifully. “He’s a big, strong horse and it’s only his third ever run. “The ground was probably a bit too loose for him. “They think a bit of the second and third, so hopefully it will be (a strong race).” O’Brien was winning his fifth Chester Vase in the last eight years, including 12 months ago with subsequent Investec Derby hero Ruler Of The World. Press Association Kevin Buckley , Coolmore’s UK representative, said: “We are very, very pleased with that. “He was a bit keen for a little stage, but Ryan got him into a nice rhythm and travelled into the race. “Ryan was very happy with the horse. He’s a fine, big type of animal and typical of a Galileo. “To do that around Chester, we have to be pleased. “It was only his third career start and Aidan was happy with him at home and was looking forward to seeing how he got on here. “Aidan probably left a little bit of work on him, and as I said it was only his third start and we were very happy with way he went around Chester.” Betfred cut the winner to 33-1 for the Derby, with BetVictor going 25-1. Paddy Power quote both Orchestra and Romsdal at 16-1, although the latter would need to be supplemented. last_img read more

first_imgJoe Root hit his third fifty in the 2019 Ashes series.Joe Root became the 12th England player to go past 7000 runs.Joe Root has smashed 45 fifties and 16 hundreds in Tests. New Delhi: Joe Root has endured a torrid time in the 2019 Ashes contest. England squandered the opportunity to retain the Urn after losing the fourth Test against Australia at Old Trafford and Root has faced some tough questions regarding his credentials as captain. Heading into the final Test at The Oval, England still have plenty at stake as they look to draw the series and ensure their unbeaten run against Australia is extended by another four years. Australia chose to bowl at The Oval and Mitchell Marsh was the star with four wickets as England ended the day on 271/8.England’s total owed much to Jos Buttler and Root’s attacking fifties. While Buttler notched up his maiden fifty in the current series, Root notched up his 45th fifty and during the course of his knock, he entered an elite list of England players. Root became the 12th England player to go past 7000 runs in Tests with Sir Alastair Cook leading the overall runs tally with 12472 runs in 161 Tests.Apart from Cook, no other England player has even crossed 10000 runs. Graham Gooch was the leading run-getter before Cook with 8900 runs followed by Alec Stewart with 8463 runs. David Gower ended with a tally of 8231 runs while Kevin Pietersen, known for his flamboyant batting, smashed 8181 runs in his 104 Tests. Geoffrey Boycott, who will also be knighted, was the first England player to go past 8000 runs with 8114 runs. Also Read | Steve Smith’s Freakish Run Streak Against England Will Leave You StunnedMichael Atherton, Ian Bell, Colin Cowdrey, Wally Hammond and Andrew Strauss are the other players to have gone past 7000 runs in Tests. Root has endured a tough time in the last two Ashes contests. In the 2017/18 series Down Under, Root scored five fifties but did not convert any of them into centuries. Root scored 51 in Brisbane, 67 in Adelaide, 61 in Melbourne and scores 83 and 58* in Sydney. In the last innings in Sydney, he had to retire ill due to dehydration. England lost the series 0-4 and in the 2019 series, the pattern has very much remained same. Also Read | Happy Birthday Sir Don Bradman – The greatest cricket player in historyAfter being dismissed for two consecutive ducks, Root bounced back with 77 in Leeds and 71 in Manchester before being dismissed for a duck in the second innings. His last century was 130 at Trent Bridge and it came in the match where Australia were bowled out for 60 thanks to a brilliant haul of 8/15 from Stuart Broad.  highlightscenter_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments Published on February 23, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Rachel: rnmarcus@syr.educenter_img For Syracuse, last season’s visit to Virginia was what SU attack Tee Ladouceur summed up as ‘an awful trip all together.’‘It was snowing out, our planes got cancelled, our bus got delayed,’ Ladouceur said. ‘Took 12 hours to get down there, and then we lost. We’re only off the bus for a couple hours and had a 12 hour road trip back.’She barely even remembers the game, which SU lost 14-13.On Sunday at 12:30 p.m., Ladouceur and the Orange (1-1) will face Virginia (1-1) yet again in the early part of its season. SU is coming off a loss to Stanford last weekend. And though this game is not make or break, there is a chip on Ladouceur and the rest of the Orange’s shoulders. The team hasn’t beaten the Cavaliers since 2004.‘It’s important in a sense we don’t want to be 1-2,’ Ladouceur said. ‘It’s not necessarily ‘We don’t want to lose this game,’ it’s, ‘We want to win this game.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe offense, which scored a combined 29 goals in its first two games, is an area that the team needs to work on, said attack Michelle Tumolo.The Orange will look to get that offense back on track against a UVa team that gave up 15 and 13 goals, respectively, in its first two games.But the No. 9 Orange still faces a tough task in the No. 12 Cavaliers. It’s been a long seven years since SU came away from a UVa game with a victory.‘It’s UVa,’ Tumolo said. ‘They’re always a good team. They’re always a great competitor. It’s going to be great for us, because we’re coming off a loss and have a lot of anger coming into this game.’The Orange is still coming together as a team and learning from the first two games of the season. And it is trying to fix the mistakes it made against Stanford, its first loss of the season last weekend.SU head coach Gary Gait knows how strong UVa is and understands that SU has to be focused when it plays a team of that caliber.‘We’re just looking to improve in what we did last game,’ Gait said. ‘We watched a lot of the game film as a team. A lot of the players, it opened up their eyes to see how they played and what they did and how they can improve. We’ll hopefully learn from that game and be much more prepared.’If the Orange wants to break its losing streak to Virginia and get its first win against the Cavaliers in more than half a decade, it will have to execute on its home turf. Because after Sunday’s game, the Orange won’t play again in the Carrier Dome until April 8.‘We’re really focused on them, and hopefully we can take advantage of our home field,’ Gait said. ‘Take advantage of it when we have it.’Tumolo knows the team can take that advantage, especially if it comes out of both halves with as much energy as it does in second halves. She has confidence in every single person on the field.Including Ladouceur, whose memories of Virginia don’t include a win. She’d like to change that come Sunday.‘For me, personally, I’ve never beaten Virginia,’ Ladouceur said. ‘This is sort of my last chance to finally be like, ‘I’m better than you and I’m going to win.”rnmarcus@syr.edulast_img read more

first_imgBayern Munich’s 3-0 victory over Schalke last weekend was not without incident, the reigning Bundesliga champions escaping two potential penalties during the game.The first, with France international Benjamin Pavard’s back to the ball, was certainly debatable but the second, when Ivan Perisic appeared to handle a direct free kick by Schalke, looked to be a certain spot kick but there was no VAR review and the Croatia winger went unpunished.While the controversy inevitably died down as the working week began, one Schalke fan decided that the perceived injustice was worthy of further investigation and duly set the Gelsenkirchen police department in motion to look into the matter.As confirmed on the official site of the Polizei Gelsenkirchen, the Schalke supporter has lodged two official complaints alleging fraud, one against the match official and another against the VAR system.While the local police gamely suggested they would open an investigation, it seems likely that the whole affair will blow over before the Miners are back in action at home on Saturday against Hertha Berlin.

first_imgIt has emerged that Manchester United captain Harry Maguire was arrested after trying to help his sister who had been stabbed in the arm by a “gangster-style” Albanian businessman.Sources last night said the Manchester United ace was with partner Fern Hawkins in a bar in Mykonos on Thursday when his sister Daisy was approached by a group of Albanian men.One of the men — described by sources as “gangster types” — started chatting up Daisy.And when she turned him down, she was jabbed in the arm with a sharp metal straw, drawing blood and causing her to faint. Harry then stepped in before a fight broke out.A source said: “Harry saw what was happening and remonstrated with them and things got heated.“He decided to try to get out of there and wanted to hail a taxi. But he ended up arguing with some undercover police officers and ended up at the local police station.”Maguire, 27, and his pals had also been furious a day ­earlier after bar staff refused to tackle Brits who taunted him.After his arrest, he spent the rest of the night in a detention room at Mykonos police station, where he charmed cops by chatting with them about footie.They brought the United ­captain snacks until he was taken on a ferry to neighbouring Syros at 2pm on Friday. He spent the night in a cell there.The £190,000-a-week footballer was then bailed and told he could leave the country after he denied a string of charges for assault, verbal abuse and bribery on Saturday.He is thought to have returned to the UK on Sunday.
