The Trial Show – Caulfield Review – Racing.com


Jumpouts

Eleven heats conducted on the course proper between the 2000 and 1200-metre marks. A few contenders for some autumn features were among those in action as they get close to kicking off their preparations, with Blue Diamond winner Written By one of the morning’s highlights.

Jumpouts

Heat 1 – Written By and Bons Away

Heat 2 – Dancing Tycoon and Schabau

Heat 5 – Bella Rosa and Groot

Jumpouts

HEAT 1 – Approximately 49.04s

A high-quality heat with Written By showing his customary speed to lead Amralah and Mask Of Time. Bons Away was allowed to find his feet early but made ground during the middle stages to join Written By and they cleared out by about six lengths on the rest of the field.

 

HEAT 2 – Approximately 49.08s

Dancing Tycoon cleared away early to lead by about four lengths from Lecture. That margin was down to between two and three lengths on the line, with both horses trialling well. Schabau was out-sped in the early stages but was given a solid hit-out right through the line and appears to have trained on well since his Australian debut victory. The Mick Price-trained Dancing Tycoon boasts an impressive first-up record and is in great shape to resume.

 

HEAT 3 – Approximately 48.48s

Tavisan jumped straight to the front to lead Elana and win the heat in good style. High Ratio made ground out wide over the concluding stages to also perform well. Tavisan was able to win at his first Australian start after crossing from New Zealand to join the Price stable and he appears in good order to kick off his next campaign.

 

HEAT 5 – Approximately 49.06s

Bella Rosa began well and controlled the heat to win in good style. The closing effort of Groot to emerge from the chasing pack and finish alongside Bella Rosa was also noteworthy. Bella Rosa was able to win at Flemington on debut and looks to be progressing well while Groot is yet to race and should be suited on debut over about 1200m. Both horses are prepared by Ciaron Maher and David Eustace and should be worth keeping on side in the weeks ahead.

 

HEAT 8 – Approximately 48.34s

The quickest heat of the morning saw Brightful, trained by Robert Hickmott, and Seatonic, prepared by Maher and Eustace, test each for virtually the entire heat. Seatonic is a two-year-old daughter of Sebring, who is yet to race, while Brightful has only beaten one runner home in her two runs to date and appears to have improved during her recent break.

Stroll wants Racing Point to be 'one of the greatest' in F1 – The Checkered Flag


Stroll led a consortium that bought Sahara Force India F1 Team‘s assets in the summer, following the team’s fall into administration, and was granted an entry from the Formula 1 2018 Johnnie Walker Belgian Grand Prix – Spa Francorchamps onwards under a new identity.

Racing Point has the same human resources as the Force India outfit that secured fourth in the constructors’ championship in 2016 and 2017, but is armed with fresh funding and a secure future.

Stroll wants F1‘s hoped-for commercial and regulatory revolution in 2021 to facilitate major success for his team.

“Short-term, we want to stay fighting where we are,” Stroll said to Formula1.com.

“Medium-term, we want to try and fight for third, instead of fourth”.

“Long-term, when all the rules, change, hopefully we will be one of the greatest teams in the paddock.”

Stroll has received some criticism for his role in saving Force India on the grounds he did so to give his son Lance a drive, and consequently forced highly-rated Mercedes protege Esteban Ocon onto the sidelines.

However, Stroll said he “never planned” to buy a team, and claimed it was only F1‘s wider vision that made him think it would be worthwhile.

“I looked at it as a business opportunity, coupling that with spending time speaking to F1 to understand their vision from 2021, which is some sort of budget cap and some sort of a better revenue distribution to the smaller teams.

“That makes great business sense for a company like this, as this is the model of direction closer to where the future will go.

“I’ve been around the sport for 30 years. There’s only 10 teams and if you look at the value of the franchise, whether it be NFL, UK rugby or football, the value of an asset like this, treated properly, cherished over time significantly appreciates.

“I think the same thing will happen here.”

The team will field the younger Stroll, who has moved across from Williams Racing, alongside experienced podium finisher Sergio Perez.

Team Principal Otmar Szafnauer and Technical Director Andrew Green, two of Force India‘s long-time spearheads, will lead Racing Point‘s push, but Stroll will also be “very involved”.

“It already has great leadership and management in the team,” Stroll added.

“They have been doing this for a long time and doing a great job. So, it’s about supporting them.

“Number two, it’s about putting financial stability in place.”

Kildisart out to book Cheltenham Festival place – SkySports


Last Updated: 20/01/19 3:38pm

Trainer Ben Pauling

Trainer Ben Pauling

Kildisart will try to book his ticket to the Cheltenham Festival with a run on Trials Day on Saturday.

The Timeform Novices’ Handicap Chase, over two miles and five furlongs, is the intended target for the Ben Pauling-trained seven-year-old after he did not take up his engagement in the Altcar Novices’ Chase at Haydock.

“I think he’ll go to Cheltenham next weekend for the novice handicap chase there,” said Pauling.

“He was declared for Haydock on Saturday until five to ten, but I had a good chat with Anthony Bromley (racing manager to owners Simon Munir and Isaac Souede).

“We just felt with him giving everyone weight with his 3lb penalty it was going to be a hard task for him.

“We thought he’d be better off getting some course form round Cheltenham.

“He’ll hopefully run a big race next weekend.”

Kildisart is currently a 16-1 chance for the Close Brothers’ Novices’ Handicap Chase at the Festival in March after getting off the mark over fences at Ascot last month.



Rugby Union – Six out of six for Saracens, Racing clinch top spot – Channel NewsAsia

REUTERS: Holders Saracens ensured themselves a home tie in the Champions Cup quarter-finals as they beat Glasgow Warriors 38-19 at home on Saturday to finish with a 100 percent pool stage record.

A thrilling first half saw three tries apiece with Ben Spencer, Vincent Koch and Billy Vunipola going over for the hosts while Tommy Seymour, Ali Price and Ryan Wilson all scored for Warriors, who were already assured of second spot in Pool 3.

Saracens had to wait until deep into the second half for lock Maro Itoje to power over for a converted try Will Skelton rounded things off for the hosts.

Racing 92 underlined their strength at home in the competition as they eventually overwhelmed Scarlets 46-33 on Saturday to earn themselves a quarter-final tie in Paris.

Their bonus point win ensured they topped Pool 4 ahead of Ulster who beat Leicester Tigers 14-13 away in a nailbiter.

Racing, runners-up twice in the last three seasons, ran in six tries but the result was still in doubt until the latter stages as the Welsh visitors played some intrepid rugby.

The hosts, who had won their last six home games in Europe’s leading club competition, ran in two tries before halftime through Juan Imhoff and Henry Chavancy but still trailed 16-15 with Steff Evans going over for Scarlets and Dan Jones slotting three penalties and a conversion.

When Johnny McNichol scored for Scarlets early in the second half and Jones converted to put the visitors 23-15 ahead there were some nervousness around the stadium but Racing hit back.

Simon Zebo’s try narrowed the gap and although Jones added another penalty, tries by Virimi Vakatawa, Teddy Iribaren and a second for Zebo gave Racing a measure of control.

McNichol’s second try proved merely a consolation.

Ulster reached the quarter-final for the first time since 2014 but did it the hard way as they trailed 13-0 away against a Leicester side only playing for pride but who included the likes of England internationals Jonny May, George Ford, Manu Tuilagi, Ben Youngs and Dan Cole in their ranks.

Second-half tries by Marty Moore and Robert Baloucoune earned them victory and one of the three best runners-up spots.
